Today we want to share 5 last minute gift ideas. With Christmas fast approaching you may be running around trying to buy your last-minute gifts. What if you have someone very difficult to buy for? What do you buy the person who has everything? There is always something that you can buy for someone special or close to you, even if it is a last-minute thought. If you need some inspiration as to what to buy then take a look at some Christmas gift ideas below. 


Everyone loves personalised gifts, whether they are from yourself or the kids. There are plenty of options when it comes to getting something with a name on it. For instance, if you are buying for a loved one then you could get them their favourite type of glass. This could be personalised with their name or a special message. If you are looking to buy edibles then you could get a giant cookie and personalise it with a message for your loved one. 

Photo Prints

If there is a special photo that your loved one adores then why not get it made into a forever gift? There are plenty of things you can do with photographs these days, including putting them on mugs or canvases. Canvas prints are a lovely thought when it comes to immortalising those loved photographs. They can sit happily on a wall for many years, and better yet they can be made in an assortment of sizes to suit you. 

Board Games

Everybody loves board games, especially at Christmas time. Everybody sits around the table and gets out Trivial pursuit or Monopoly. It is a time to enjoy yourself with your loved ones and what better way than with some friendly competition. If you know there is a game that the recipient particularly loves then you could get this for them. Alternatively, how about a retro version of the game? For example, take a look at retro monopoly or scrabble. 


Food and drink are always well received at Christmas time. This is simply due to everyone being able to overindulge and not feel guilty about it. This is why hampers are such a great idea to put a smile on your loved ones’ faces. You can get all sorts of hampers delivered right to your door, or even theirs. If you know they love cheese then how about a cheese hamper? This includes many varieties of cheese for them to try. It usually includes a cheeseboard and knife as well. 


Finally, does the recipient love stationery? If the answer is yes then you could get them some of this and create a lovely bundle for them. For example, you could make a pen bouquet. People are always needing to find pens at the last second. You could also get them a beautiful fountain pen if they enjoy writing neatly. 

We hope this gave you some ideas on what you can gift your loved ones. Remember, don’t stress out about gifts, it is the thought that counts.
