Halloween has passed and winter has officially arrived -- which means, our favourite time of the year is just around the corner! Christmas - the season of joy, laughter, and course, gifts. With Christmas just over a month away, it may seem like you have lots of time to get your shopping done; but, trust me, Christmas Eve will be here sooner than you think. Having so many gifts to buy, sometimes we find ourselves one gift short; so, to save you from showing up empty-handed to the party, here are some easy, last-minute gifts that won’t break the bank.
20$ and under
Bath Bombs or Sugar Scrubs
I know it sounds basic, but trust me, it’s not. Most people love luxurious bath items like sugar scrubs; but, rarely buy them for themselves; so, gifting someone with this “pamper yourself” item, allows them to indulge in a bit of relaxation.
If you’d like to make it even more thoughtful, you can even make it yourself! With a little essential oil and items from your kitchen (coconut oil and sugar), you can make a personalized scrub that anyone would love. When you’re done, grab a nice mason jar, a printable label, and in just a few minutes, you’ll have the perfect last-minute gift for the season.
P.S.- If you have a little wiggle room in your budget, pair it with a scented candle, specialty herbal teas, or a gift card to their local bookstore.
40$ and under
Cozy Throw Blanket or Comfy Pajamas
Two staples of the holiday season include comfy pajamas and a cozy blanket for sipping hot chocolate and watching Christmas movies on the couch; so, why not gift your loved one with one of the essentials?
To really amp it up, add some warm socks, or a festive mug with a jar of their favourite hot chocolate.
60$ and under
Christmas-Themed Gift Basket
Everyone loves a basket full of goodies. If you feel like splurging, grab a basket and fill it with an assortment of their favourite things. You can fill it with a bottle of wine, chocolates, teas, or bath items; or, if you’re really running low on time, head over to your local specialty arrangements store for a pre-made one.
So there you have it! 3 simple gift ideas for your last-minute shopping!
