Christmas shopping is awesome. It’s all part of the festive atmosphere, and Christmas wouldn’t be the same without the hustle and bustle of a mall, and queues that stretch for thousands of miles.
But what do you do when you simply haven’t had the time to write out a list of presents? If you haven’t had time to do that below are eight last minute Xmas gift ideas for friends.
A Handmade Christmas Card: If you’re a creative person who is good at making things, why not get a bit crafty this year and make your friends a Christmas card? A handmade Christmas card is both a card and a gift. It’s extra special because you made it, and you can customize it so that it’s related to them.
Blender: If there is one kitchen appliance more people wish they had, it’s a blender. If time is running out and you’ve got a friend who wants to make their own smoothies and soups, order a blender online before picking it up from the store.
Gift Voucher: A gift voucher is the perfect last-minute gift. Indeed, it’s the quintessential last minute gift that many of us rely on.
A Collection Of Teas: If you’ve got a friend who absolutely LOVES tea, why not treat them to a collection of teas from around the world? I think this is an excellent last-minute gift to get someone you know who enjoys tea, but who perhaps needs to get a bit more experimental.
Subscription To A Service: What does your friend love? Whatever it is they love, be it magazines, Amazon, or coffee, buying them a twelve month subscription is an easy but awesome last minute Xmas present that they’ll love.
Browse Online: Not got the time or the energy to head into the hectic city and fight through the crowds to find something your friends might like? Then pop online! You really can’t go wrong with stores like Amazon and eBay – there is literally something for everyone.
A Box Of Chocolates: Can you really go wrong with a box of chocolates? You can – because everyone’s tastes are so different. If you buy a friend who loves milk chocolate a box of dark chocolates, they’re probably going to be able to tell that their Christmas gift was the result of a very late dash.
Shop Late: If there is no way you can get out of work to do some last minute Christmas shopping, and if the idea of shopping online doesn’t really appeal to you, you could instead take advantage of late-night shopping that most cities and towns offer during the xmas period.
