Uh Oh…

It's two days before Christmas and you realize you left someone off your list or feel like you need to grab a few last minute stocking stuffers. The mall is chaos, you're low on money, and you want something basic, simple, and useful. 
My last minute shopping guide:

Dunkin Donuts/Starbucks gift card
Who doesn't love coffee? If they don't love coffee, they have to love donuts. Because that's just unnatural not to. Pick up a gift card from your local store as an easy present you know will be used. 


This is where Etsy can be your best friend. I'm a huge fan of cute quotes, and several people on Etsy make instant downloads you can just print right from home and throw in a frame. Artwork. Boom.
Oh, and you buy and download the printables, so you can use them as gifts later (or for yourself.) I ordered a few from here to give as gifts and for my apartment. 

Bath & Body Works anything

This is a common go-to. 
Lotion. Body wash. Candles. Gift card. You really can't go wrong. I would prefer a gift card that way I can choose any scent I want and whatever I want. The best. 

Virtual gift card 

Want to completely avoid the chaos? Sit at home, click a few buttons, and send that special someone on your list a virtual gift card to their favorite store. A few of my favorites: kate spade, Nordstrom, Tuckernuck, Etsy, Target, Sephora, Lilly

Framed pictures
You can't go wrong with simple. Find a nice frame and get a picture of the two of you printed and you've got a perfect present. 


Well. That's pretty simple. Everyone loves some wine in their life. Pick up a bottle with a cute label and throw a wine tag on it for a cute, festive touch. 

Birchbox membership

For the beauty product lover in your life-- the gift that keeps on giving. You can gift a 3, 6, or 12-month subscription that gets sent right to their door. Doesn't get much easier than that. 

What is your go-to last minute present?
