Running out of time? Check out our list of last minute Christmas Gifts.
No one has to know that you had to pick
up a present right before the party. Last minute gifts can still
be thoughtful and stylish.
It's easy to pick a present that's not tacky, and learn eye appealing ways for wrapping it.
If you do run out to a store to purchase the gift, make the wrapping special so they don't think you forgot to get them something. Be creative and use ribbon or sting along with a fancy bow.
Decorative boxes or bags will also work. Add something fancy to it like a feather, tinsel, or some garland.
If your still stuck on what to buy someone, try a gift certificates or a subscription to a magazine. You can print them off and you won't even need to leave your house. If time is running out and you know the stores are closed or going to close soon, this is the perfect idea and it will work for both kids and adults.
Don't forget to put it in a small decorative box, it will make it more appealing
Tips for choosing last minute presents:
You can go to a store that carries a variety of item. Places like Target, Walmart, and Macy's have hundreds of gift ideas for everybody that you're shopping for.
Try to choose something that the recipient can get a lot of use out of. For example, if you know the person loves to take pictures with a digital camera, something simple like a set of rechargeable batteries is a great option.
If you're shopping for a Secret Santa exchange, make sure you get a gender neutral gift. If you're completely lost as to what to select, go with a gift certificate, and let the recipient pick out his/her own present.
