With Christmas coming up quickly this weekend, you may be scrambling to finish checking off everyone on your shopping list. Stores are crazy leading up to Christmas, so it’s understandable if you want to steer clear of the madness. We don’t blame you! Instead of falling short on presents this year, check out a few amazing gifts that can be picked up last minute but still have the wow factor! Here are three of our favorites last-minute gifts:
The great thing about purchasing a gift card s the fact that they’re located right at the registers and you don’t have to worry about the recipient not liking what they get. They can buy themselves exactly what they want! While you’ll still have to wait in a line, you won’t have to fight a crowd or wander more than a few feet into the shop. If you know a store that the person you’re buying for frequents, purchasing a gift card to that store still allows you to give a gift with a personal touch. However, if you don’t know where he or she shops, a big-box chain location is always a good option. It’s also a good idea to keep the recipient’s recent life experiences in mind. If he or she recently bought a home, a gift card to a hardware store will be handy, and if he or she is expecting a baby, a baby boutique gift card will be a lifesaver! Gift cards get a bad rap but really can be the perfect Christmas gift.
Flowers aren’t just for romantic holidays! They also make great Christmas gifts. If you’d like to mail a present to someone who doesn’t live nearby, sending flowers online is always a safe bet. You can order until December 23 to guarantee Christmas delivery! With Teleflora, your flower arrangements will always be delivered by local florists – never in a box. You can choose from a variety of Christmas-themed arrangements, like the Festive Trimmings Tree. All of Teleflora’s arrangements are housed in a vase or other sort of keepsake that you can use forever, like a mug or basket. What better Christmas surprise than to open the door to a gorgeous, festive bouquet?
Gift certificates for massages or other spa treatments are good for everyone! Not only do you not have to brave a hectic shopping mall or store, but the recipient is sure to enjoy a little pamper session, especially after the craziness of the holidays. These sorts of treatments are typically a bit pricey, and many people hesitate to spend their own money on splurges like this, so an excuse to relax and get a massage, facial, or even a haircut is always going to be welcome. Try to find a spot near his or her house and check Yelp for locations with good reviews.
