Oh I am sure we all do it with at least one person on our list, and some may even theave their whole list, until the last few days before Christmas. So, what do you do for those people that you are still stumped on, but you really want to get them something? The easiest solution is think about what they love – good food or music or clothes or travel – and then get a gift card for that place. If that is not personal enough for you, here are a few other ideas…
For the music lover, you could get tickets to an upcoming show, a record player and then an album on vinyl, or if you have a tighter budget then make a really sweet mix. Who doesn’t love a new mix that has been made with love – seriously, always one of my favorite gifts to get or give, but then again I am a music lover.
For the lover of good food, you could go with a gift certificate to a new and upcoming restaurant in the city he or she lives in or create a Tasting Tour of Minneapolis (or the appropriate city) and a journal to write down notes about the experience at the place – you could get really creative with this, just not too creative because Christmas is only a couple days away. If this food lover prefers to stay in and cook, this gift guide would still have some good options for a last minute gift.
For the fashionista that you are too afraid to dress – go with accessories. Every fashionista completes a look with the perfect accessories. Go with something you like because it will mean more. Pretty earrings from a little boutique, necklace or there is always a beautiful scarf. A fashionista can never have too many scarves.
For the travel lover – go with a beautiful print from one of the favorite cities, or a fun map. There are so many great options out there, a lot are online so those will have to be out if you want to give the physical print on Christmas – but you can also find a lot of these are local boutique stores. Those always have a good travel inspired gift section.
And, if you are still stumped. Get a gift card and write a funny message to go with it. Stick it in a box and wrap it up – that way they still have ribbon to untie!
How are you doing on your list? All done or still have a lot to get accomplished?
