Last minute Christmas presents ideas

Hey there! 🙂 

Even if every year you are telling yourself that you will start Christmas shopping earlier, somehow you can’t keep this promise. Last minute gift buying and the queues in the stores can bring lots of pressures for when you are in a hurry.  If you found this article, maybe, you are looking for a little inspiration for your Christmas shopping run or you need a very quick and easy gift. Anyway, I hope you will find this short list helpful.

For her

Even if shopping for a woman can seem simple at first, in reality it can turn out to be more than complicated. 

A. Make-up

Never underestimate the power make-up! To make things even easier for Christmas, Sephora has prepared packages and palettes ready to be gifted. 🙂 You can find products from a wide range of brands, from Too Faced to Smashbox, Zoeva, Kat von D to Lancome grouped on special categories prices. Even the packaging is stunning. Usually, during this period you can find some pretty good deals. 🙂 


B. Jewerly

If you found yourself with no inspiration, you can always gift a really nice bracelet or a pair of earrings. You can find really nice sets and colours. Accessories are always a nice idea! Even a purse would be great! 


C. Home decor

A cozy blanket, a frame, or scented candles could make a simple, but yet effective gift, which can be easily personalized depending on the person you are shopping for. Ikea, Pepco, Zara Home or H&M offer a diversity of home decor products and they can help you with your choice.


For him

It can be so difficult to get gifts for your dad/brother/boyfriend sometimes… so I thought I would find some ideas

A. Gifts based on Hobbies

Everyone has a hobby or has some kind of preference for certain activities. It could be a nice way of showing you pay attention to that and you could try to find certain things in that direction. It could be a gaming accessory or an agenda, a phone case, a man pack with all his favorite things. 

B. Clothing Items & Accesories

Sometimes you cannot go wrong with a nice shirt or a Christmas sweater. Plus, you can personalize a shirt with a funny message or whatever else you would like. Also, a wallet or a card holder would make a really nice and elegant gift too. 

C. Tech

Many of us are trying to keep up with the latest trends and since we are living into a fast developing world, chances are your bae might be interested into everything that is new. It could be a new phone charger, external battery or a smart watch. Especially, the latest have gained popularity this year. This could be a great gift. 

Finally, some gifts which will never fail you are the universal ones. When I say this my mind wanders to some good books as well as DIYs. One can’t deny the power of a great book. Depending on who you are shopping for, you can choose between fiction,  self help, cook books etc. I am sure one book will draw your attention. 🙂 

In what concerns the DIY gifts, they could be a really nice gift, showing you really made an effort.  You could custom a laptop case, a candle, a mug, a passport holder, or you can make a basket full of the things the person you are giving the present loves. You can also personalize a notebook or an agenda.

At the end of the day, Christmas is not just about giving and receiving gifts, but also about being with your loved ones and being a better person. I wish you happy holidays and I will see you soon on my next blog post! 🙂
