Gift Etiquette Last Minute Gifts

 

 

 

 

 

 

SUBSCRIPTION GIFTS -  Give a monthly subscription that keeps on giving every month.  You can print off the certificate last-minute but cater the box to their interests so it still shows some thought.

GIVE -  Bespoke Post for the guys or Birchbox for the beauty junkie ladies or for anyone try a box of edibles from Blockful.

ORDER ONLINE + PICK UP IN STORE  - A lot of the big national chain stores let you order online and pick up product in store, some even do curbside pick up. Take advantage of this to avoid the craziness of the malls.

GIVE - Polka Dot trinket boxes from Target or a Beer Making Kit from Nordstrom (both offer this service)

DIY GIFTS  - Don’t go too overboard with a last-minute difficult DIY projects, make it easy on yourself and put a few related items together in a themed container for a sweet DIY gift kit.

GIVE - For the gardner use a clay pot for the containter and fill with gloves, seeds and a gardening magazine subscription.  Or fill a Starbucks carrying case with coffee beans, a gift certificate and a gold monogram mug.

EXPERIENCE GIFTS -  Give an activity or an experience,  since it’s a certificate you can buy last-minute, print off and it will be the most memorable gift they recieve. 

GIVE - Pick from 100′s of local experiences like Fighter Pilot for the Day or a Personal Chef for the night.
