The Last Minute Gift Guide

It happens every year. The holidays are a busy time, and every year tons of people are left wondering where the month of December went when, suddenly, Christmas is right around the corner and they haven’t even begun to shop yet. If this is you this year, don’t sweat it. Here are our five favorite last minute gifts that you can give to almost anyone. 

1. An Electric Car Blanket

At first look, we agree, this one is a bit random. But think about it. This is a really handy item to have that could, in severe circumstances, save a life. If you live in a place where temperatures get cold, having an electric blanket in the car not only gives you an easy way to stay warm on chilly morning and evening rides, but it also provides warmth in the event you wind up stranded with a flat tire during the winter months. Just plug the blanket into a cigarette lighter and cuddle up. The kids will love it for the morning ride to school, too!

2. When in Doubt, Send Flowers

Almost everyone loves to receive flowers. If you find yourself in a real pinch at the very last minute, check out 1-800 Flowers. This year they’re offering free same-day delivery on most items on Christmas Eve. The florals will dress up the recipient’s home nicely while making you look like the most thoughtful person in the world. This is certainly a gift that they’re not likely to receive from anyone else, making it very memorable.

3. Amazon Echo Spot

The newest tech in the connected home series, the Echo Dot blends form with function in this small, round device. It sits on countertops and displays weather information most of the time. But, when asked, it can do anything that the original Echo (also known as Alexa) can do. It makes a great karaoke friend, as it can display lyrics as your favorite tunes play. It’s perfect for men and women, as well as for kids!

4. Lottery Tickets

Specifically the scratch off kind. Everyone loves taking a gamble over the chance at hitting it rich! Since you can pick these up almost 24 hours a day right up until Christmas Day, it really never is too late to get this done! Giving lottery tickets is a bit more personal than offering straight cash and hey, maybe the gift recipient will share their winnings if they hit it big!

5. QALO Silicone Rings

You knew we had to put our rings on the list! But really, they’re a perfect gift item. Not only are they beautiful and practical, but they’re also affordable!
