Last-Minute Gift Ideas

It seems like every year Christmas sneaks up on us before we even notice. As it approaches very quickly (we’re talking within the next few days quickly), we know there are some of you who still have some last-minute gifts to purchase. If you’re having trouble coming up with that perfect gift, keep reading!

Give ‘Em an IOU!

Want to try something different? Come up with an IOU (“I owe you”) on a fun card! If are giving this to a significant other, give them an IOU for a date night of their choice – such as a movie night or a dinner date. If this gift is for a family member, make it something like an IOU to help clean out their house or babysit the kids! Whatever you decide, make it fun by adding an “expiration date” – so that they make sure to take advantage of your favor and so that they know you are serious about fulfilling it! 

Shop on and Pick Up In-Store!

Up till 4:00pm on December 23 local time, you can order eligible items on and pick them up in store until 5:00pm on December 24. Walmart has expanded their eligible items this year, so check out to see if you can find the perfect gift!  

Let Them Pick Their Gift!

Since time is short and you may be having a hard time coming up with a gift, offer a shopping spree! Give a price limit and let that person choose a day to go shopping with you and choose the gifts they want! This is a fun way to spend time with them while also ensuring they will love whatever gifts you get them (with their help 😉).

Donate to Charity in Their Honor

Maybe you are shopping for someone who has insisted they do not want any gifts. If so, find out some of their favorite charities and give a donation in their honor. This is a great way to give back during the holidays while also showing that person that you care about them and want to do something for them.

We hope these ideas have helped you think of that perfect something for the one you love! We wish you a safe and happy holidays!
