Last-Minute Christmas Ideas

Christmas is less than ONE week away,  and if you have left Christmas shopping to the last minute you may be in panic mode.  So, I thought I’d choose the perfect gift ideas to help you out if you’re a last-minute shopper or you just simply are struggling for present ideas.

For the shopaholic:

Gift cards Although not the most inspired of gifts, gift cards are perfect for those who love shopping! Gift cards are available in pretty much any supermarket or online, and whether you are a last-minute shopper or just want to let them choose what they want themselves, you really can’t go wrong! (If you want to make this more personal, buy them multiple gift cards to their favourite stores!)

For the makeup collector:

Most places online will have next day delivery, so if you don’t have time to pop into store, why not put together a few of their favourite makeup items inside a makeup bag and create a truly personal gift?


If you’re struggling for ideas of what to package the makeup in, then the Zoella Core Midi Cosmetic Bag would be a wonderful idea.

For the comfort lover:

At Christmas, you really can’t go wrong with giving the gift of pyjamas and personally, I think NEXT do the best sets! Either go for a print that gets them in the festive spirit, or, go for a pattern that can be worn all year round.


For someone who has everything:

We all know somebody who is difficult to buy for and I always think it’s nice to get these people positivity books. I love all of the ‘The Little Book Of….’ series, and think they also make great coffee table books. My favourite is The Little Book of Happiness and think anybody would love to unwrap this on Christmas day.


For the hot drink addict:

Getting anything personalised last-minute can be a struggle, so treat the hot drink lover in your life to an Emma Bridgewater Alphabet Mug! This way, you’re getting them a personal gift, but they need not know that you got it at the last-minute! If you want to, you could also fill it with special teas or hot chocolate sachets!


All of these ‘last-minute’ items would make wonderful gifts, and I know that I would love to unwrap any of them on Christmas day!

Let me know if you’re a last-minute shopper in the comments, or on Twitter @Emstagramr.
