10 Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas

December 15, 2016

With Christmas right around the corner hopefully you’ve begun, or better yet, finished your Christmas shopping. But if you’re like many Holiday shoppers, the season quickly gets away from you. Before you know it, Christmas is just a few days away and you’re empty-handed and stumped. What is still available this late in the game? We’ve created a list of 10 last minute Christmas gift ideas just for you, so you don’t have to show up empty handed on Christmas morning.

10 Ways To Save Christmas


Who doesn’t like a cozy pair of slippers in the wintertime? With most slipper sizes span a few different shoe sizes, so you should be able to get the sizing right. It’s a fun, festive, and easy gift idea.


If you’re shopping for a friend, family member, or coworker (especially female), you can’t go wrong with chocolate. But for heaven’s sake don’t just grab a Hershey’s bar from the grocery store! It won’t take much more effort to find something with gold, sparkly ribbon on it at the mall or local sweet shop that will add some sentiment.

Movie Night Kit

This is a really simple gift that’s fun for the whole family. You don’t even have to know their movie preferences that well! Just pick up a Christmas movie, grab a box of popcorn; throw in a few packages of candy and a 2-liter bottle of soda. Put it all inside a cute basket or bowl and voila! christmas-party

Phone Battery

With how much people use their phones these days, it’s safe to say as evening approaches their battery level is low. Get your loved one an external phone charger as backup. They can keep it in their purse or car, it’s relatively cheap and you know it’ll be put to good use!


Okay, this may seem kind of lame but everyone likes the color green when it’s money, and you know it will fit – inside everyone’s wallet that is! If you’re going to give cash, just be sure to put it in a nice and thoughtful card. Who doesn’t want a gift that allows them to buy that special gift Santa forgot to put under the tree?

Gift Cards

Along those lines, a gift card is also a great last minute gift idea. You can choose a favorite restaurant, movie theater, or store which shows you are a thoughtful gift-giver. But again, you leave it open ended so they are able to get something they really want.

Think Ahead

Most gifts can be used immediately, which is great. But why not think ahead and give them a gift that will keep giving all summer long? Set up a fertilizing treatment with All Green Pest Control & Lawn Care for your loved ones! It may not be as exciting to open in the dead of winter, but come spring and summer when their lawn is a rich emerald and their neighbors’ lawns are brown, you know they’ll be happy with your generosity.


Grabbing a bottle of wine, sparkling cider, or even a specialty soda is a simple Christmas gift that everyone will appreciate.


There’s nothing like twinkling lights and the glow of a fire during the holidays. Pick up a great cinnamon scented candle as your last-minute Christmas gift idea; the receiver will get a wonderful smelling home, the ambiance will be cozy and inviting, and best of all they’ll attribute it to you!

A Plant

Whether you grab a poinsettia to stick with the festive theme, or a generic fern that will last all year long, a plant is a great gift to give. A plant livens up any home, cleans the air, and is a gift that will keep on giving all year long.
