Last-Minute Gift Ideas

It happens every year: suddenly you need a gift for someone you either forgot or didn’t think about getting a gift for. But with a little planning and creativity, you can be prepared ahead of time. Food is always a good option, whether it’s a gift basket filled with cheeses and crackers or fruit or a mix in a jar for cookies or homemade soup, it’s a fun way to share.

Passes to a rec center or museum may be just the thing for someone on your list. Lessons or classes make a great gift, too. How about fencing classes, painting lessons, or cooking lessons? So many things are available, you’ll surely be able to find something that matches your recipient’s interests.

Check — and Take Advantage of — Holiday Hours

Stores know that this is the busiest time of the shopping year, so thankfully for the shopper, sometimes that means hours are extended beyond usual! Just be sure to check your store’s hours either online or by phone so you don’t waste a trip. And if all that’s open is a grocery store, consider going anyway. You might be able to find a perfectly acceptable gift, like a gift card or some inexpensive jewelry or winter gear.

Make a Creative Gift

A gift doesn’t have to be over-the-top to be great. Make something creative or heartfelt if you can’t make it to the store. Or opt for movie passes or tickets to a concert, theater, or sporting event. So many things are available, you’ll surely be able to find something that matches your recipient’s interests.
