Last Minute Holiday Gift Guide


Last Minute Holiday Gift GuideWe are headed into the final countdown to Christmas! And if you are like me, there are a few people on your list who are always hard to shop for. You know, those people who have everything and are typically hard to please.

Here are some last-minute gifting suggestions that might help you think outside the box:

The Chattery: The Chattery describes itself as a non-profit learning collective. They host a variety of classes for everything, from soap making to financial planning. They also offer gift cards! This would be a perfect gift for those who would like to learn something new or have been curious about starting a new hobby.

Subscription Box: A subscription box is the epitome of the gift that keeps on giving. Most subscription box companies allow you to choose between 3 and 6 month plan options curated based on your interests. There are boxes dedicated to almost all interests so finding one won’t be hard! The recipient of this gift would get a box each month full of goodies to try. For the Beauty obsessed, try Boxy Charm or Ipsy. For the special guy in your life, try The ManBox or Spreeza Box.

A Photography Session: Although many people use their smartphones for those in the moment photos, there is nothing like having a professional photographer to capture moments that will last forever. Maybe you have a friend who needs updated headshots for their business; if so, try Venya Portrait Studio. For a great family photo session the whole family will love, check out Gholston Photography.

Personalize It: For the sentimental, I suggest personalizing a gift. Some of the best responses I’ve received in gift giving have been gifts that mean something. A blanket with pictures of the grandkids. A vintage lantern etched with the names of my late grandparents. Check out Personalization Mall for ideas.

Staycation: I want this one myself! Book a night in a local hotel for the busy mom. That’s it. That’s the gift. For anyone needing time away when you can’t get out of town, it’s perfect.

For the Foodie: Gift cards are great and always accepted, but why not a lesson in cooking! Gift your foodie friends a lesson at the Sweet and Savory Classroom. They have classes for all ages and also virtual options for you to learn at home.
