In Ultimate Gift Guide we’re bringing you all the best advice on gifting, whether you need something to share for the holidays, bring to an event, or gift just because!
It can be hard to make the time to find the perfect Christmas gifts, let alone wrap and send them to their patiently waiting recipients. Holiday gifts are going fast this year — and carriers are experiencing high demand — but it’s not too late to share a little holiday cheer with family and friends with these thoughtful last-minute gift ideas. Think of gifts that can bring joy long after the holidays, such as subscription boxes, kitchen supplies, and eGift cards. And holiday treats, such as baked goods and Christmas gift baskets for the whole family, will surely make their season merry and bright.
Here are 10 last-minute Christmas gift ideas that will make your final week of Christmas shopping easy. But we wouldn’t wait until the very last minute…
Add a little sweetness to their holiday with the Classic David’s Holiday Banquet Gift Box. This adorable box comes decorated for the holidays and includes six seasonal pears, paradise dried fruit mix, raspberry galetes, and milk chocolate-covered cherries. This is a perfect gift for your holiday hostess (or a perfect gift for yourself, if you’re feeling cheeky).
The best Christmas gifts are the ones that keep on giving (and boost your vitamin C levels). With a Fruit-of-the-Month Club subscription, the recipient will get a different box of fresh seasonal fruit delivered every month. From sweet HoneyBells in February to strawberries in May and Oregold® Peaches in August, this gift will remind them you’re thinking of them all year long.
Share the love with friends and family with this luxurious basket that’s overflowing with goodies. The Hearthside Gift Basket comes with a bevy of treats, such as signature chocolate truffles, baklava, chocolate decadence cake, and two types of cookies. For those who are more interested in savory snacks, this basket includes four kinds of cheese, smoked salmon, smoked pepperoni sausage, and much more. The best part? It’s just one last-minute gift you need to send for an entire group that you forgot about.
Kickstart the new year with a cheery array of sweets that will please any palate. The Deluxe Holiday David’s Gift Tower offers Moose Munch Premium Popcorn, signature truffles, five delicious seasonal pears, and tasty honey wheat pretzels. Whether your recipient is more into savory or sweet, they’ll surely find something to love about this tower of holiday delights.
Don’t have the time to bake cookies at home? Send this sweet Christmas Cookie Collection to your loved ones that will keep Santa coming back for more. This delightful box comes with 22 cookies, including raspberry-filled tree-cutout shortbread, coconut macaroons, and gingerbread sandwiches. These are best enjoyed with a cup of eggnog and while singing a few carols, as well as spending time with folks named Carol.
Popcorn is a Christmas classic, and it doesn’t get better than popcorn covered in caramel and chocolate. The Deluxe Moose Munch Tin comes with all the fan favorites, from classic caramel to milk chocolate s’mores. With six different bags, there’s enough for the whole family to share (or to last one person until the new year).
If you want to satisfy someone’s sweet tooth, these Winter Wonderland Dipped Strawberries from Shari’s Berries will do the trick. They’re decorated to look like adorable snowmen or blue icicles with sparkling sprinkles. Available in three sizes (we say, go for the large!), these will bring holiday cheer to any home.
Give the perfect gift for the home chef with kitchen linens. With a cotton apron, oven mitt, and two kitchen towels, there’s enough here to create an entirely new kitchen ensemble. They each feature a vintage Royal Riviera® Pear design or stripes in black. Now, they can cook up Christmas dinner or any gourmet meal in style.
Spread some holiday cheer with the gift of flowers. The Fields of Europe Christmas bouquet from 1-800-Flowers.com comes with beautiful red and white blooms that are hand-arranged in a glass vase tied with a red ribbon. These flowers are certain to turn any blue Christmas into a holly jolly one.
