Last Minute Gift Ideas

This post contains affiliate links.

Are you one of those last minute shoppers? If so, have no fear! Here are some helpful tips and quick last minute gift ideas that will get the job done on a budget:

  • Check out the retailers having large sales and offering free rushed shipping to encourage you to buy.
  • Order online but select “In Store Pickup” instead of having the item shipped to you. This typically saves you time AND money. (Available at many stores like Target and Nordstrom)
  • If all else fails, choose expedited shipping so your gifts get there in time.
  • I’d suggest sticking to safe gifts because typically the people you are buying for late in the game are people you don’t know well or people who awkwardly got you a gift but you didn’t think you were close enough for an exchange!!!
  • On the same note… Make sure to include gift receipts.
