Last Minute Christmas Presents - Quick Ideas for Rushed Gifts

Do you need some quick ideas for last minute Christmas presents?

Some people start and finish their Christmas shopping months before the holiday is actually upon us. If you're one of those people, then you are the bane of existence to all of us who keep putting off buying Christmas gifts until the last possible minute.

We are the kind of people who keep saying that, though we can't think of something for people on our gift-giving list, we'll somehow come up with the perfect last minute Christmas presents when the time comes.

Not true. It rarely ever works out that way. In fact, when we wait until the last minute, what tends to happen is that we decide that anything is better than nothing, and what we end up giving is something that isn't going to be appreciated or remembered.

Don't let that happen this year. Of course, I could tell you that the best way to prevent that from happening again is to not wait until the last minute, but we all know that's much easier to say than to do, right?

Of course it is, so for the rest of us who are realistic about life, here are some wonderful ideas for last minute Christmas presents that will save the day.

Gift cards

As much as I despise the idea of gift cards, they do happen to make great last minute Christmas presents. The important thing to keep in mind about giving gift cards, though, is that if the person you're planning on giving it to doesn't read, for example, then a gift card to a bookstore isn't going to go over too well. However, if the person loves cars, then a gift card to the local auto parts store might be a great idea.

Spa treatment

Who wouldn't like to spend the day being pampered at a spa? Men and women both enjoy massages these days, and with the constant stress that most of us are faced with on a regular basis, getting a massage can be a great way to show someone that you care and were thinking about their needs. Who knows, if you give a spa treatment as a gift, you might get one back in the future!


If you know that someone loves a particular dessert or food item, taking the time to either make it or buy it can say a lot. Again, just like with the gift cards, you need to know what the person likes, otherwise your last minute Christmas presents are going to appear to be what they are: last minute.

Time with you

If you have family members or friends who complain that they never see you enough, then give them time with you. Tell them that no matter what you're doing, you'll be there for them for 'x' number of hours. Guaranteed. It might be quirky and funny, but they'll appreciate it.

Bottle of wine

If the person loves wine, then this would make an ideal last minute Christmas present.

Last minute Christmas gifts don't have to be lame. If you take a few moments to think about the person you're shopping for, you'll likely find a gift that will be remembered.

All the best in your search!
