Last Minute Gift Ideas


The best gifts for a last minute trip

Ok, Christmas is approaching FAST. And you don't have everyone sorted out. Welp. What do you get? Fear not, hopefully my post will be your savior for last minute ideas! So, sit back, relax and read on to see my inexpensive suggestions. Beauty, home or fashion... I've got your back!

001: Find a main present like a palette or highlighter! An eyeshadow palette, highlighter or whatever you know they'll love can be found in any drugstore. If they love makeup then they'll love you for this! Products like the Makeup Revolution Unicorns Heart highlighter are amazing quality for the price. A little something that can help them slay all year round.

002: Stocking fillers like nail paint! Nails Inc, Essie, Barry M. These brands are amazing ones to turn to, and if there's an offer, you can get a few and stick them in a homemade cracker. All you need is empty toilet roll, wrapping paper and pretty string. And voila!

003: Head to Lush for all things festive and sweet! Probably a super last minute option as they have all the pre-wrapped gifts for you to feast your eyes on. Whether they're a shower, bath or all products round person. There's something for everyone. Also, why not pick up a Snow Fairy? It's the Lush Christmas cult classic.

004: TK Maxx have it when it comes to candles! If they're all about the candles, you know where to turn. The big brand bargain store have some of the most amazing scents on offer PLUS they're at amazingly cheap prices. Brands like Kringle are actually great quality and the scent lasts for aaageeess. If you only need something small, they do offer tea light candles as well.

005: Little gifts like Soap & Glory are sure to be a hit! Boots usually have a 3 for 2 offer, and brands like S&G are the best! Little gifts that have hits like Clean on Me and the Righteous Butter should become their favourite present. Or treat them to a bigger gift like the It's A Calendar Girls calendar. Ooooh.

006: Cute sentimental jewellery like a ring! Not just any jewellery mind you. The best place ever is probably Topshop in Oxford Circus where they have different brands. My favourite one by far is Hardware Vintage. There's SO MANY unique pieces, so you'll be spoilt for choice when choosing for that jewellery obsessed someone.

Have you guys finished your Christmas shopping?

  1. Lovely and fun post Fran, lots of great gift ideas for us bloggers! Jewellery can be such a personal and perfect gift, especially as we don’t always tend to buy it for ourselves. I don’t regularly shop in Topshop, but I know they do have a rather nice jewellery selection. I’ve finished my shopping, but still have a little wrapping to do. Merry Christmas! :-) xx

    1. Aww thank you! I didn’t want to do those standard gift idea posts that everyone does... And I did finish mine at the beginning of the month and everything is wrapped haha :) x

  2. I feel like it's a lot easier to find last-minute presents for girls than for guys - there are lots of amazing gift sets in lots of shops, or even a cute set of Primark pyjamas and cosy socks if you're on a budget. I always struggle for guys though!
