Wow! I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. This month has flown by! Today I’m sharing some last minute gift ideas, including a few places that will still arrive by Christmas Eve!
If you’re in the boat of needing a last minute gift, you’re definitely cutting it close but you’re still in luck. Today is essentially your last chance to ship a gift, but I’ve got some other tricks up my sleeve for you as well! Whether you’re shopping for a bestie, a husband, or a family member, I’ve got you covered with today’s last minute ideas! First, let’s talk about a few tips to shopping for gifts right now:
(Our cute blonde/brunette sweaters are from Brunette the Label! How cute is my friend Jocelyn in her Blonde sweatshirt! We didn’t even plan the leopard coordination! Unfortunately they don’t arrive by Christmas, but they make a great gift!)
Last Minute Gift Ideas: Buy & Pick Up In Store
Avoiding the mall during the 10 days leading up to Christmas is a main goal of mine, however one of my favorite things to do is browse online to see what Nordstrom has in my local store. I can submit my order, wait a couple hours and then head to the store to pick it all up. No lines, no sales people, and you don’t even have to find a parking spot. Just a simple phone call when you pull up to the store will do, and they will set it right in your trunk for you! Some stores even offer delivery to a local Nordstrom Rack, or even your home for a small fee so definitely keep this in mind. Your time is extra precious this time of year! The only down side is that Nordstrom doesn’t carry EVERYTHING in every store, so before you start searching, be sure to set it to search your local store. You can check out this page for some fun gift ideas, and the products that will arrive by Christmas Eve are noted in red (if ordered by 10am ET on the 21st!)
Last Minute Gift Ideas & Themes:
Two gifts you can’t go wrong with for women are a Patagonia Jacket or an MZ Wallace bag. I’ve had my MZ Wallace tote in black for YEARS. It is still in perfect condition, and it’s my most used bag. (I’m eyeing the rose gold lately!) It’s easy to wipe down, and I’ve even had to throw it in the washing machine before.
If you’re struggling to pull a last minute gift together, try thinking of a theme! Think of something that the person loves, and run with it.
Loves to travel: Suitcase, packing cubes, travel outfit, headphones, passport case.
Loves to relax: Face mask, robe or pajamas, candle, bath bomb or bath salts.
Loves to work out: wireless headphones, sneakers, workout outfit, gym membership, yoga mat, gym bag.
