We’ve all been there…it’s December 1st, we’ve started our holiday shopping list, are ultra prepared, and then boom, time flies it’s almost the holidays and life has gotten in the way of your shopping to-do list. Rest assured, I’m sharing with you some last-minute gift ideas that will not disappoint.
Sometimes, gift cards really are the most thoughtful option. If styled in the correct way. Here are a few ways to give gift cards in a tasteful and intentional way.
- Date Night Bundle: Pair your favorite wine with a gift card to a local restaurant, tie a ribbon around it and present it with confidence.
- Beauty Bundle: You bought some beauty stocking stuffers but now feel like you are missing the main gift to tie it all together…gift an e-gift card to their favorite beauty brand or store along with a lipstick or lip kit like this one.
- For the Kids, Gift an Experience: Promise them fun by gifting them the experience of going somewhere like Build-A-Bear Workshop. You can even get your elf on the shelf to help you reveal this sweet gift.
- Nothing says special like the gift of a spa day: We could all use a little pampering after the holidays. Pair a spa e-gift card like this one with a few self-care items like a facial mask and rose quartz roller for the perfect little spa bundle.
Tips and Tricks to Last-Minute Holiday Shopping
Look out for reduced expedited shipping promotions: Brands and stores want you to get your items on time but sometimes it’s not in their control. Look out for emails notifying you of reduced express shipping options that could help you save and have peace of mind for when your gift will arrive. Be cognizant that there are shipping delays worldwide so this is a wonderful way to stay ahead of the game even when you feel behind.
