With less than a week to go until the big day, finding quick last minutes gifts are more than a little stressful. However, there are a few different things that people always love, that can arrive quickly at your home, and that won’t take too much out of your account.
Here are our top recommendations for last minute Christmas gift ideas. These will surely impress you and surprise the one whom you will gift.
Pens, pencils, and markers are always in high demand with every age group. Go out of your way to get special pens or pencils, such as gel pens, metal mechanical pencils, fountain pens, or anything else you can think of. Pair this with nice paper, extra ink cartridges, or even a new diary for the perfect gift.
Every crafter has something they need, and often they can use any extra supplies offered. Consider getting a heat gun, glue gun, wire cutter, or something similar. Pair this with supplies such as glue sticks, crafting foam, embroidery floss, or fabric. If you really want to get fancy, you can put it all together in a themed crafting basket with a few plans from around the internet.
Items like Washi tape have become popular over the last few years; it offers a fun way for anyone who uses a planner to make scheduling more interesting. Most Washi tape is only offered for a short period of time, and people who use it in their planners appreciate getting limited edition or festive offerings. Throw this together with a few stickers, special pens, or anything else that works in a planner for a quick but thoughtful gift.
While you may not think of drawing pens, envelopes, paper, and the like as a Christmas gift, but pairing it together as an organisation station actually works well. Choose a white board, pens, personalised envelopes, a planner, and anything else you think would help your friend or family member get organised. This is actually a really great gift for anyone attending university as they will be better able to keep track of deadlines. They will have a place to store their papers, and generally not be looking all over their flat for every little thing they need.
You still have enough time to get supplies and make something for the people you love. Making your own ornaments, embroidered kitchen towels, or even bath bombs is a great way to show someone you care. Using the right supplies, such as sealable craft bags, professional looking labels, and double-sided tape to package your items will make them look much more professional and appealing when you are done.
It’s never too late to get something for your loved ones for Christmas. Throwing together a kit or tailoring a few different supplies to cater to their hobbies or needs is one way to ensure that your gift is well received. Take care when shipping or packing your gifts to make sure they aren’t damaged.
