How to pick the best last-minute Christmas gift

The ultimate pitfall of shopping last minute is giving a gift that seems thoughtless. Our best advice for last minute gifting: be intentional. It’s okay to buy a gift card, but put some thought into where the recipient would enjoy shopping. Generic gifts like candles and wine are made infinitely better if they’re to the person’s taste, so try checking in with their close friends and family to find out what they like.

What’s a good last-minute gift for the person who has everything?

Shopping for the person who has everything is even more difficult when you’re doing it in a time crunch. Since you don’t have tons of time to brainstorm, consider picking up a gift card and letting the person choose something that they don’t have yet. You could also buy an experience gift that will be delivered instantly.

What’s the best DIY Christmas gift for the last minute?

Try potting a fern or succulent for your friend! Everyone’s home or apartment could use a little more green. Doesn’t sound like your friend’s style? Layer the ingredients for their favorite cookies in a mason jar for a delicious and aesthetically pleasing gift.
