Can you believe it’s only six sleeps until Christmas day?! I’m completely obsessed with Christmas, so saying this is my favorite time of year would be an understatement. I live for it! However, as excited as I am, I’m usually always shopping right to the end. Each year I try to plan everything and be so organized… but there are always one or two people you realize you need gifts for. If you’re in the same boat and looking for last minute gift ideas, I’ve collaborated with Sears to help you find them!
Forget the standard last minute movie voucher, gift card or bottle of champagne… these gifts will make people think you put lots of thought into it (no one will ever know you ordered them rush delivery this weekend!)…
First, let’s talk about gifts for the gals! I want all of these for myself, but I have to keep saying “No, Lauren – they are gifts for others.” Basically every woman I’ve ever met loves a little leopard – after all, leopard is a neutral. So whether you’re buying for your sister, BFF, mother, aunt, or your second cousin’s best friend’s niece… this leopard print infinity scarf or leopard bathrobe and slippers set will be perfect! At under $25, they won’t break the bank either – and I have to tell you, the quality is absolutely there – they look and feel fabulous!
Another idea for any glam loving gal is this grey embellished quilted sweater (under $25). Oh my gosh, I’m in major love with this – I adored it online and when it arrived… ooooh! I actually bought it for my Mom, but had to seriously rethink that when I tried it on. It’s stunning and the fit is brilliant!
Now I want it for myself, but the problem is, my Mom saw the sweater sitting in my office… and she loved it the second she laid eyes on it. Now every time she stops by, she says, “Oh I just love that sweater!” so I’d feel bad if I didn’t give it to her as intended. She’ll be reading this post… Hi Mom! Good news, the sweater is yours for Christmas! (Can I please borrow it?)
Let’s talk about the guys… whilst most men I know work in a corporate office, they also love the outdoors and doing “man things”. So I found these NordicTrack convertible pants (under $30) – we all know guys love something that has a unique (yet oh-so-practical) trick to it. They can be worn as long pants, or zipped off at the knee into shorts – and the good news is, they’re surprisingly stylish! I got these as a gift for my Dad and I know he’ll be thrilled.
I also found these NordicTrack performance sports socks (under $10), they feel really well made and have cushioning in the soles. A great gift idea for pretty much any male you can think of… I’m always stealing Chris’s socks (no they don’t fit me, but I can never find my own!), so I got these for him as a little stocking stuffer at Christmas.
If you’re doing some final shopping this weekend, I hope these last minute gift ideas help!
