Best Last-Minute Gifts

Every holiday season, there are always a few people who pop up unexpectedly. They just have to bring a big bag of tidings of good cheer and unanticipated Christmas gifts. It could be an old college friend, the guy in your office who you chat within the elevator every day, or even your florist (and you didn’t even know you had a florist). Or perhaps your carpool decided it be would tons of fun to do a Secret Santa exchange during your commute. No matter the scenario, it is all too easy to find yourself on the hook for additional gift cards, gadgets, subscriptions, and stocking stuffers you didn’t intend to purchase at the beginning of the holiday shopping season.

But here you are. And these situations can be tricky. You don’t want to seem too cheap or impersonal. You’re worried lotto tickets might appear tacky and that a Starbucks gift card will look like you simply dashed out on your lunch break to grab whatever last-minute gifts were easiest. Even if that technically is true, you don’t want anyone to suspect that you are simply going through the motions of good cheer. Luckily, there are some awesome items still available that are sure to paint you in a very thoughtful light.
