The Last Minute Gift Guide



Well here we are, it's December 19th. Christmas is just days away and I am, per usual, unprepared. I give bloggers who manage to get multiple gift guides published per season while somehow maintaining at least the veneer of got-it-together-ness so much credit – for me, something happens every December. I start off strong, but by the 15th, I've melted into a pile of nerves and self-induced stress. Anyway, all that to say I'm still finishing up my shopping this week (thank you, Amazon prime) and I thought I'd share a few personal favorites here – you know, in the event I'm not the only one still shopping (guys, I don't even have a tree).

I'm definitely utilizing Shopbop's new Amazon webshop - everything's eligible for Prime shipping which means you could grab a cute hat for mom or a set of stacking bracelets for a friend (+ check out these under $50 cuties)

These home gifts would be sweet for a favorite couple or a friend who's nesting and loving these sweet children's presents for little ones (those knit rattles! so cute!) and when all else fails – you can't go wrong with a cute pair of pajamas

This sleek home diffuser would be lovely for a mom or sister (or as a gift for yourself)

For the sweet kitty in your life, you can't go wrong with this insanely cool spaceship cat bed

This cookbook would be perfect for the cook in your life (or someone obsessed with fermentation)

An indestructible (and beautiful) copper French press (plus a really good bag of coffee and a to-go cup) would make nearly anyone happy – highly recommended for gift swaps!

For your best friend who just needs to relax, this set of sheet masks is self-care heaven

This is the candle that makes Anthropologie smell so good... need I say more?

Oprah says these slippers are her favorite thing – and I'm apt to believe her. Perfect for your mom or anyone else who could use a little cozy in their life.

And if you're still looking for a holiday outfit combo, here you go: fluffy jacket + pretty little dress

And finally, you can't go wrong with a handmade gift – these healthyish dark chocolate turtles look and sound amazing.

Please check your link to the spaceship cat bed - I think it might be wrong. It took me to Shopbop's dress page anyways. ^_^

I have had that Vitruvi diffuser on my WANT list for about 8 months...I've never used one so I'm hesitant to go for it, since most other models are about $20 (but SO tacky!) :( It was 30% on Anthropologie's website the other day and I am KICKING MYSELF!
