The Ultimate Last-Minute Gift Guide

December 14, 2017

If you are anything like me, you love getting your Christmas shopping done in one fell swoop, and usually on major shopping days like Black Friday or Cyber Monday. However, this year, I have found myself struggling to find the perfect gift(s) for everybody on my list. Perhaps it is because I have a little more money than I am used to (thanks, big girl job!) and am now becoming totally indecisive. Or, my procrastination could have been induced by my packed schedule and sheer lack of desire to walk into the madhouse that is our local mall. I am sure many of you can relate.

Regardless, there is only one more week left until Christmas Day — meaning we only have six days to cross that last person off our shopping list. There is no need to panic, though, as I have taken it upon myself to compile a list of some excellent last-minute gift options for virtually every woman in your life. Without further ado, let’s get started!

Gifts for the girls who value comfort above all else:

Lou & Grey Signaturesoft Cowl Tunic — $59.50

If you want to give the perfect cozy gift, look no further. While I was working at LOFT, I discovered their loungewear line and never looked back. While Lou & Grey’s products may fall on the pricier side of the spectrum, their quality is inimitable. Their Signaturesoft fabric is genuinely the softest I have ever felt, and it lasts through countless washes, wears, and coffee stains (trust me on that one).

Xhilaration Faux-Fur Slipper Socks — $6

If your budget cannot allow you to splurge on one gift, do not fret! You can still give the gift of (chic) comfort without breaking the bank. Just head down to your local Target or place an order online to scoop up these slipper socks before they sell out!

Gifts for the girls who love a little sparkle

Irina Glass Chandelier Earrings — $20

These shimmery chandelier earrings strike the perfect balance between bold and understated, as they are neither too big or too small. Plus, their rose gold finish is sure to dazzle even the pickiest trendsetter in your life.

Eliana Beaded Druzy Pendant — $36

If the last gal on your list is a bit of a minimalist, this pendant necklace is sure to complement her wardrobe nicely. Complete with a small, but semi-precious stone and freshwater pearls, this versatile gift can easily be dressed up or down.

Gifts for the girls who cannot get enough makeup

Tarte Blush Bazaar Palette$44

This small but mighty blush palette packs an incredible punch. Coming in just under $50 and containing 10 shades that are nearly full-size, this holiday set is sure to become a staple in any makeup lover’s collection — especially if she loves to travel!

Morphe 35F Palette — $23

This little number is actually the latest addition to my personal makeup collection and let me tell you, I have never owned another palette like it. Complete with rich, pigmented shades and the perfect balance of warm- and cool- tone shades, this palette is equal parts bold and versatile. The only drawback is that there is only one row of matte shadows, which do not offer the wide range of transition shades this palette truly needs. However, if the girl you are buying for seems to have other palettes in her collection, that will not even be an issue.

That concludes my 2017 gift guide! I hope you found it helpful in your search for the perfect last-minute gifts. If you give one or more of these items, be sure to leave the recipients’ reactions in the comments below!
