Less than a week away from Christmas and yup… you’re still needing that last-minute gift (or two, or three…).
Don’t worry, we got you covered!
I am so grateful to have partnered with Première Moisson for this post. All opinions are 100% my own and I hope you find some inspiration for this holiday season!
I say it every year: “I am going to start shopping for Christmas presents in October! Promise!”
And it never happens.
Yesterday (yup, one week before the big day!), I found myself storming through crowds at the mall, trying to find the perfect present for my husband. It’s hard: after being together for so many years, I feel like I’ve exhausted all the classic gifts. We’ve covered leather goods, watches, trips, etc. I often like to go for practical things, but he’s one of those people that buys things whenever he wants or needs it.
I know many of you out there are running around trying to cross everybody off your list. Here are a few last-minute gift ideas that I recently put together (after doing a lot of running around myself):
Inspiration for Last-Minute Gift Ideas
Showing up to someone’s place with a bottle in-hand is not uncommon. Wine and champagne are the perfect host/hostess gift. Take it up a notch by gifting them some nice glasses or champagne flutes to accompany the drinks!
I often gift gift cards/certificates to the movies. Everybody deserves a night out and gifting a full movie experience (tickets for 2, a gift card to the concession stand, etc.) is something I know I would definitely appreciate.
Beautiful candles can really set the tone in a home. A boxed set of candles gives your loved ones a choice of what scent to use in different rooms.
If there’s one thing my friends and I all have in common, it’s our love for food.
Josée Fiset, co-founder of the oh-so popular Quebec bakery Première Moisson, released Les Carnets de Josée Fiset (translated: The Notebooks by Josée Fiset). The mini-series feature her creations: recipes to make with loved ones and beautiful food photography (that are oh-so drool worthy).
At only $4.95 a notebook, these notebooks are truly inspirational – and so they make for the perfect last-minute gifts for the foodie in your life.
Make it personal and give your loved one a bouquet of their favourite flowers. A beautiful floral arrangement will certainly jazz-up anyone’s place.
Psst: we’ve got something for ya!
