5 Last Minute Gift Ideas That Won't Break the Bank | Only on Five Foot and Fabulous!

It’s December 23rd and you’re wrapping the last of your Christmas presents when you realize you forgot someone on your list. It’s so close to the holiday that even Amazon Prime can’t get something to you on time. Don’t panic! There are still quite a few last minute gifts that are available to give!

5 Last Minute Gift Ideas That Won't Break the Bank | Only on Five Foot and Fabulous!

1. Amazon Gift Card

You don’t even have to leave your house for this gift! An Amazon gift card is like giving cash, but it feels a bit more personal! You can set it up so that your person receives the card in their email inbox on Christmas morning. Amazon also offers gift cards from different companies, such as Sephora, Nordstrom, and Starbucks!

2. Subscription box

A more personal option is a subscription box! If the person you’re shopping for loves beauty products, get them a Birchbox. There’s also Bark Box for your dog-loving friend, Cloth & Paper for the office supply enthusiast, and CatLadyBox for the crazy cat lady you know!

3. Food filled goodie bag

Who doesn’t love food? If you need a gift in a pinch, try putting together a collection of yummy holiday treats! Sugar cookies, candy canes, hot chocolate mix…there are a ton of possibilities!

4. DIY Sharpie mug

The best DIYs are ones that you can’t mess up, and this is one of them! You can get a white mug at almost any store that sells dishes, and you probably already have a sharpie lying around somewhere. Draw a cute design, bake it in the oven for a half hour, and you’re good! Head here for more specific directions!

5. Handwritten letter

Sometimes the best presents are ones that don’t cost a penny. Hardly anything is handwritten anymore, so receiving a handwritten letter is a very special thing. Write from the heart and tell someone how much you love and appreciate them. It might even be a tearjerker!

As you can see, there’s a lot of last minute gifts you can get someone! Just keep an open mind and everything will be fine!
