Gift Ideas: Did You Procrastinate This Year?
Gift ideas for the last minute shopper. I’m sure you know someone, or a few “someones”. If you don’t, you might be one yourself. I’m also willing to bet that there are those of you that are planners, the type-A ones that make a list, check it twice, and have everything wrapped by December 15 (you know who you are.) But alas, even the plan-aheaders sometimes forget that one person on the list. Maybe it’s an aunt that doesn’t visit often, or a second cousin that decided to show up at the last minute. Regardless of the reason, we’ve all been in the same boat before.
Last minute gifts. Even worse, needing a last minute gift after most of the stores have closed. Sure, you could stop by Walgreens and grab a gift card (in the hopes that they’re open). Starbucks is open on Christmas. You could jump in there and grab yourself a latte, while also grabbing a gift card with a holiday mug. Running errands on Christmas, however isn’t ideal, nor is it always possible. It’s certainly not the best option.
I have good news for you. 30% of all holiday shopping is done online by last minute shoppers, therefore you are not alone. Luckily there are options to great gifts to purchase that keep giving throughout the year, or give at a later date, and you can grab those online from the comfort of your couch.
Try some of our ideas for your loved ones. Avoid the crowds, spend extra time with family, and check one more “to-do”off your list. Even better, there are several online shopping options that keep giving for a few months, sometimes even a year.
For $20 a month, you can send your favorite friend with a sweet tooth something to satisfy their cravings. Chocolates, sweets, and other candies are options you can choose to fill your box with. A box of chocolate once a month? Sounds like my kind of gift!
*Get $15 off with code URBAN15.
Gift ideas for the makeup lover- these subscription boxes started several years ago with a limited selection of content. The Birchbox is one of the first subscription boxes beginning in 2010. At the time, there weren’t a ton of options for that type of gift. I loved getting the Birchbox. A pink box arrives in the mailbox with samples of beauty products that a customer wouldn’t typically try. Purchase favorite items via the Birchbox online shop and receive $1 for every $10 spent as well as free shipping.
*Men’s and Women’s boxes available
*Get 20% off a women’s gift subscription using code HURRY20, and receive a gift certificate ready to print.
