Gift Guide | Last Minute Gift Ideas

by - December 05, 2017

I wasn't planning on doing any gift guides but this past weekend I had this idea that there could be a lot of people out there who don't even think about the presents they're giving to people until it's about a week before Christmas. So, to help you in your search if you reach that point, here's a gift guide with ideas for presents that most people like so that you don't have to waste much time thinking about it. Good luck!

But first, let's talk about something important. You know that if you're gonna do your shopping online, you're gonna have to invest in some fast shipping if you want the items to arrive before Christmas. So, throughout this post, always remember that. Thinking of that, I only picked items from Amazon and Asos so that you can use Amazon Prime and Asos express shipping since both websites ship to (almost) everywhere. And if you decide online shopping isn't for you, stick to local shops that sometimes have really cute things that your loved ones might enjoy.

If there's a beauty junkie in your inner circle then this gift will be very loved. Don't be like everybody else giving them makeup products or other random bits they might not really love, give them something they will use that they wouldn't necessarily buy for themselves. And almost every makeup lover has some kind of makeup sponge so they will definitely give this pretty sponge holder some use.

Everybody likes to be warm this time of year, right? A hat or a beanie is the one gift that everyone would love and nobody would even notice it was a last minute idea.

I feel like Bluetooth speakers had their time, a while ago, and nowadays everybody who has wanted one has one but there could be someone out there who doesn't have one and doesn't even know they need one and that's where you come in with an awesome gift. Plus, this one is waterproof which means that the person you decide to gift it to can take it to the shower with them!

Everybody's gonna think I'm crazy for adding this to a gift guide but if you think about it, it's actually a really great gift. We all know that one young couple that is very open minded or that one person that has a very active sex life so why not give them a funny gift that will sure get some laughs on Christmas day but that could actually be useful?

That one "absolutely crazy about dogs" person. That's all I have to say.

Everyone loves a good board game and it's a great gift to give to someone with a big family or to kids. This Candyland The World Of Sweets Game seems like a delicious game to play, while the Harry Potter themed Clue seems like something for big Harry Potter fans (and we all know one).

This is the kind of gift that is perfect for those classy, older, mature people that you don't really know what to give them because you don't really know what they like or what they need. It's a thoughtful gift that is beautiful as well and anyone would love to receive it.

We all know someone who desperately needs a new phone case. These two are some of my favourites, too bad I don't have an iPhone...

Mugs are another one of those gifts that are perfect for anyone if you don't know what to give them. You don't really know them well, you don't want to spend too much money on them, and everybody loves a good hot beverage once in a while so go for a mug and that person will be very happy.

For that classy man that likes this kind of stuff. It's pretty and luxurious and it's not that expensive compared to others.

Candles are always nice, they're perfect as a gift and a good quality candle is the best present for those people you don't really know what to give them.

I hope you're having a great day,
