Yes, you may have been rather disorganised and got into the Christmas spirit too early this year – but even if you haven’t done all your present shopping, there’s no need to panic. The Christmas countdown is well and truly on, and with just a couple more shopping days until the big day itself, there’s still time to pick up some truly unique and special gifts for your loved ones. So even if you thought that all hope was lost, and were rummaging around at home trying to make your own gifts, then put the Sellotape aside. Read through these ideas to hand and you will be rewarded with smiles from your nearest and dearest this Christmas day.
For some of us, our homes really are our castles. From boudoir bedrooms, to living rooms that look like they are out of the pages of a glossy magazine, choosing home-related goodies is the ideal option for that special someone in your life, who loves their home. The hard to buy for female in your life will love some luxury nightwear, a cosy dressing gown or seriously indulgent slippers. While proud aunties or busy mums will seriously appreciate some aromatherapy essential oils or a reed diffuser to add an element of luxury to any home. So, if you are seriously struggling, home-related gifts should be top of your last-minute list.
If you’ve missed the Christmas post, and are trying to buy a present for that family member who truly has everything – yes there’s always one – then why not consider giving them a subscription. It’s up to you to choose between six or twelve months, and they can even receive their gift via email, ideal for the tech lovers in your life. Sites such as Netflix and Audible offer a range of options depending on how generous you feel. And, of course, magazine subscriptions are still available – you could even subscribe them to the e-magazine, which is often a lower price than the price version.Plus, this is the ideal gift if you are doing some last minute shopping and don’t have time to leave the house.
You’ve missed the post, it’s gone midnight and you still can’t decide what to buy for the sports lover or theatre fan in your life. Well worry not, as sites such as Ticket Sales offer tickets for a range of sporting events etc. Buying a ticket will give them something to look forward to and provide precious memories to enjoy for years to come – as well as the experience of seeing their favourite teams or shows in action.
If you are stressing out about your Christmas shopping, or perhaps you haven’t even started, then worry not! There is still time to be clever and pick up some presents that can meet with your budget. Let me know if you have any other ideas for very last-minute gifts by leaving me a comment below.
