Last-Minute Christmas Gifts

For those of you that thought Black Friday was the busiest shopping day of the year, you are WRONG.  The busiest shopping day of the year is actually the Saturday before Christmas!

Usually I have all of my Christmas shopping and wrapping done before December but this year I am WAY behind.  With that said if anyone else is finding themselves in a bit of a pickle this post is for you!  I have come up with a list of last-minute gifts that won't look like you threw this all together 30 minutes before the party started and they will surely leave smiles on everyone's face :)
I am a HUGE fan of making gift baskets, so all you need to do is take the items throw them in a basket, bucket, gift box, stocking, or whatever and you are giving the best gift under the tree.

Gifts for Guys
  • A six-pack of hand-crafted beer, a can of mixed nuts, & beef Jerky
  • A fifth of Jager, a pack of RedBull, & two rocks glasses
  • A set of barbecue utensils & a few bottles of seasoning or marinade
  • A box of fine cigars & a cigar cutter
Gifts for Girls
  • A bottle of bath salts, a scented candle, & a box of chocolates
  • Three boxes of flavored teas, a box of wafer cookies, a to-go mug, & a $5-$10 giftcard to a coffee shop (this gift idea can work for both tea lovers & coffee lovers)
  • Fuzzy socks, nail polish, an emery board, & foot lotion
  • A flower pot, seed packets, & gardening utensils
Gifts for Guys & Girls
  • A plastic popcorn bucket or bowl, instant popcorn packages, candy, & a giftcard to a local video rental store
  • A bottle of red & white wine, a decorative wine stopper, & two festive wine glasses
  • Fill a basket with their favorite candy, soda, & chips
  • Purchase a wide-mouthed re-sealable water bottle & fill it with power bars, & a giftcard to a sporting store

Happy Shopping!
