Last Minute Gift Ideas


last minute2

When scouring for some last-minute gift inspiration, have a plan and conquer. Great gifts are within reach at your local grocery store and/or convenient store. The gift card options are enormous. From beauty and fashion to restaurants and events – gift giving has never been so easy.

Electronics are also a cinch to purchase and make a major statement. Look for Apple Vending Machines at your local department store or shopping mall. It’s as easy as purchasing a soda.

Beauty tools are a necessity for both men and women. During the holidays they are available in great sets like the ghd Style and Finish Kit that features the ghd Gold Series 1″ styler and Natural Bristle Oval Brush wrapped-up tight in a sweet satin pouch.

For men: the new Remington Black Diamond Rotary Shaver is the must-have for gadget guys and style conscious men who demand the very best. The Black Diamond Technology allows the Rotary and foil Shavers to effortlessly across the contours of the face resulting in a close, clean shave with less redness and irritation. Make your man smooth all year round.

For the luxe lady in your life – check out the Kevyn Aucoin Candlelight Kit. This limited edition assortment features the best of Kevyn Aucoin Beauty: The Celestial Powder in Candlelight, Limited edition Eye Shadow Set in Palette #8, The Precision Liquid Liner and Signature votive candle. She will be glowing all year.

Who doesn’t love candles – a decadent candle is a wonderfully thoughtful gift. The Diptique Votive Candle Trio is a great option, featuring three of their best-selling scents.

Lastly, there is nothing better than new pajamas. The perfect gift for both men and women – no one will ever be disappointed. My favorite are the J.Crew Vintage Pajama Set. Simple, classic and last forever.

When last minute shopping, don’t wonder around aimlessly browsing for gifts. Make the experience quick and easy with a plan. Godspeed!
