Good morning gorgeous…and Merry Christmas Eve! Wow, it’s HERE! I have even seen the messages on “Google” showing that you can track Santa’s travel. Technology – AMAZING!
I don’t how to put this without sounding like I am contradicting myself but I am going with it. Today, I am sharing some of my TOP last minute gift ideas, especially if you are someone who prefers to wait until the last minute, is not into the Christmas spirit, or just needs a little push to shop. Whatever it is, I hope what I am sharing helps.
On the flip side, I am someone who cannot wait until the last minute – just me & my “makeup” – but, this year, I almost wonder if not being prepared, and waiting until the last minute, would have helped me OR put me in the same situation right now.
I am the type that as I buy Christmas gifts, I wrap them pretty much on the immediate. It might not be that very day but within the next few days. I love to wrap – there is something really special about a wrapped gift that looks exceptionally fabulous – and it can become quite the job if you leave it until the last minute. Yes, you know who you are if this seems to FIT your personality. Those LATE, post Christmas Eve parties where all you want to do is go to sleep but every gift under the sun needs to be wrapped, toys assembled, and you are rethinking that extra glass of wine or cocktail you thought would be a fabulous idea!
This year, with the way the mail has been rolling, you could, easily, shop online the day before and simply tell people “it has not arrived.” Do I think it’s cool, no; will I ask you WHY you waited until the last minute, hmm, maybe; in the year of Covid, does it really even matter, f&*% no. I will give you a pass this Christmas – you have 366 days to get yourself in check for next year! I have 2 gifts that have been floating out in USPS land for (almost) 3 weeks, and 1 I purchased that later said “sorry, it’s sold out.”
All kidding aside, I understand that this is a much different Christmas – financially, emotionally, etc. – and we are all doing the best that we can right now!
Now, time to get shopping! I have, already, seen a LOT of sales that are happening so you may even be able to score some last minute deals too! While I could go on and on about what to purchase, I am going to keep these short and sweet as to not overwhelm! FYI: The easy button gift card is always an option too!
And, I am going to keep these in line with all of the topics that I influence on too! P.S. If you are looking for more gift ideas, make sure to check out my “A-List” page for more goodies!
Since I am sitting here writing this blog before 7:00 am, currently on my 2nd cup of coffee, I thought I would share my love of the Nespresso Aeroccino 4 Frother. If you are looking to change you caffeine game, or know someone who enjoys a nice cup of java (or tea), this device is amazing! It just makes me feel all kinds of fancy, and allows for 4 different options too! And these latte mugs would be the perfect compliment too! I have, myself, and, for the price (with 30% off right now), you get 4 which is an even better deal!
Another great gift that I think anyone would swoon over is the Lodge Cast Iron Skillet. From the newly married couple, or the person who loves to cook, this skillet is so versatile you can do pretty much anything in it! The 12 inch – which is a perfect size – is only $31.95. HELLO!!!
Okay, I may be a bit obsessed but you CANNOT go wrong with anything Aviator Nation! Plus, they are unisex, and are a fabulous to gift to give ANYONE – fashionista or not! I am a huge fan of the hoodies, zip-ups, joggers, tees, vests, jackets, who am I kidding, EVERYTHING! Did I already say you cannot go wrong?
Another amazing gift that is trending this year is the BeautyBio GloPRO Microneedling Regeneration Tool Set! I purchased one back in August, and it has been a wonderful addition to my beauty regime. What I love about the one that Nordstrom is offering for the Holiday’s is that it comes with both the face and body attachment, and the, actual, tool is adorned with sparkles. Because it is, absolutely, all about the bling!
Something else that looked really cool is the Recoup Cryosphere. For the fitness enthusiast in your life, this small, handheld device is a combination of ice therapy and myofascial release that targets any body area and helps reduce inflammation & assist in boosting recovery too!
I have had my eye on this Lexon Oblio Wireless Charger & UV Cleaner for some time. Now that I am thinking of it, I should have put it on my Christmas list. The idea was for my Dad but when I was told his phone is not wireless, well, BOO. What is really cool that is charges and sanitizes in 20 minutes. The UV light is what zaps 99.9% of those nasty screen germs that linger. It comes in a fabulous gold color which just makes this tech gift even sexier.
Finally, another item that will bring a smile to anyone on your ADULT list is a Vinglace Wine Chiller – I am obsessed with this navy color – along with a bottle of bubbly too! Clients gave me one a few years ago, along with my logo, and it has been awesome! It has, even, traveled with me to St. Maarten so those beverages can stay extra cold while chilling under the blue skies, palm trees, and warm sand. Vacuum insulated, and stainless steel, your drinks will be kept chilled for hours!
