Can you believe how quickly Christmas is approaching? It feels like it came out of nowhere and I am NOT prepared this year. I have sop many people to buy for with so little time.

But, don’t worry! I have some last-minute Christmas gift ideas that are perfect for you (and me). On my list, I have my husband, my daughter, my parents, my friends… the list seriously goes on and on. I figured your list looked somewhat similar to mine so I  sectioned off this gift guide just like that.

Each of these gifts is ideal for your loved ones, friends, and neighbors. Get each person marked off your list for the year and you can sit back and relax! 

Best Places to Buy Last-Minute Gifts

The week before Christmas, forget about shopping online unless you have Amazon Prime. Prime is amazing! You can get your gifts within 3 days even up till Christmas. (Thank you, delivery drivers!)

Otherwise, if you are really in a bind, I would recommend ordering gifts directly from local stores like Walmart and Target. You can see what is in stock and literally go straight up and pick it up.

If you are brave enough, you can walk into the store though, I wouldn’t recommend it unless you’re supposed to be somewhere in an hour and haven’t had a chance to pick something out yet. 

I’ll be with you in Christmas spirit 😉
