A Procrastinator Gift Guide

A list of some last minute Christmas Gifts!
A+Procrastinator+Gift+Guide

A procrastinator Let me guess-you have needed to purchase Christmas presents for people for the past month. Now it’s a couple of days before Christmas, and you have nothing. Cue the panic. Except, not this time! I have compiled a list of the best last-minute gifts to get your Secret Santa, friends, and family members. 

 

1. Gift cards-The easiest last-minute gift ever. If you are really in a pinch, buy an electronic gift card for your friend on Amazon,  or their favorite online shop. You can also go out and gift cards to their favorite in-town restaurant, or shop! It saves them money and allows them to treat themselves, so they will love it. It is also insanely easy to purchase, solving your dilemma! 

 

  1. Gift baskets-Gift baskets are the easiest gifts to get for Secret Santa. Compile a basket with their favorite snacks, candies, and chips, with the occasional candle or fluffy blanket! These will always be appreciated, and are super easy to make. You can also put almost anything you want in a gift basket, making it super versatile! This is also fairly cheap to create!

 

  1. Books-Books are excellent gift options! There are a ton of books at Walmart-I promise you can find one your friend will like! If you don’t want to buy a book, you can always find an old book on your bookshelf you are willing to part with and annotate it for your friend! Personalizing their book like this will be so meaningful!

 

  1. Experience together – Sometimes physical gifts aren’t the most meaningful ones. Experiences can be equally as fun and appreciated. Plan a dinner or fun day of activities you know they will love. It takes no time to purchase, you just have to be willing!

 

  1. Hand-crafted gift- These are super fun to make and super easy! You can find simple crafts to do to help decorate their room or car! I love how personal handmade gifts are!

 

  1. Baked goods/treats- I have the world’s biggest sweet tooth so receiving baked goods would be amazing! Most baked goods don’t take long to whip together, and will always be put to use!

 

  1. Make someone a playlist- If your friend is a music lover, this will be a dream come true! It is so sweet to have a playlist that was made specifically for another person, and it is a great way to get introduced to new music. I think this is the perfect gift if you want to get someone something personal, but don’t have much time.
