There’s only three days until Christmas! If you haven’t finished your shopping, there’s no need to panic. Here are 4 last minute gift ideas for anyone on your list. Let’s call it a little procrastination giftspiration!
1) gift card it up
Although they can seem impersonal, gift cards continue to be a fast, easy and effective way to ensure everyone on your list is taken care of. Even if its Christmas Eve, you can still get someone what they really want.
Going the physical gift card route? Put each gift card in a separate plain envelope with a trivia question written on it. When the recipient answers the question correctly, they can open the next envelope. You can also create a gift card bouquet with some green pipe cleaners and a flowerpot with foam in it.
You won’t be able to have as much fun with emailed gift cards, but if you live far from the recipient, they are the most realistic and convenient way to send a gift in time for the holidays.
2) holiday & chill
Thank goodness for streaming services! You can easily and quickly gift anyone with a video or music subscription—like Hulu, Netflix or Spotify—for a month or a year.
Most gift subscriptions simply require your recipient’s email address and your payment information to purchase and send. You can also buy gift cards for services like Hulu and iTunes in most retail stores at a gift card kiosk.
3) deliver some happiness
“Food of the month” clubs have been around for quite a while, but food delivery services have become way more popular as of late.
Now you can gift your favorite foodie with a subscription to a meal or food service tailored to their specific tastes or dietary restrictions. In just minutes, you can sign them up to receive a box of goodies—ranging from candy and cookies to spices and handcrafted meats—from $10/month and up. Most services let you choose monthly, 3-month, 6-month or 12-month subscriptions.
4) last minute gift, last-minute sales
If you know that you need a last-minute gift from a brick-and-mortar store, don’t worry. Many retailers are open extended hours the final days before Christmas.
Most of our Stage Stores locations are open until midnight this Friday and from 7am-8pm on Christmas Eve. We have tons of great deals on everything from tech gifts to designer fragrances to give you the procrastination giftspiration you need.
