Hey last-minute Lucy, we’re here to help! It’s ok if last-minute is your style, because we’ve got ways to help you make it look like it wasn’t last-minute. Here’s a list of unconventional last-minute gifts for all of you down-to-the-last-millisecond-shoppers:
Whisk Them Away
A trip is always a great gift for a significant other, because everyone could use a vacay! Go the extra mile and actually plan the entire trip in advance (if you can plan in advance, book it and tell them when to pack their bags) – reserve the hotel, buy ticket vouchers, book excursions for when you’re there. One of my favorite kinds of “trip gifts” are themed ones like: A Trip to the Final Four in New Orleans, Surf Lessons in Costa Rica or Tour the Pubs in Ireland. Get creative! Check out these sites for excursion ideas: Travel Zoo, Apple Vacations + Kayak.
How to wrap this: gather small items that are related to the trip (i.e. sun tan lotion, pink drink umbrella, sea shell) and put them in a gift bag.
Give an Experience
Xperience Days makes it easy to find a gift for anyone whether they crave adventure, thrills or creativity. From race car driving and sky diving to cooking classes and food tours, you can give a gift that will leave a lasting impression.
Fast + easy: Simply print out the voucher and wrap it up!
A Year’s Worth of Gifts
Gift-of-the-month clubs are the gifts that literally keep on giving. Some of them are on the pricey side, so you could opt for just a 3-month subscription. Some of our favs are J.Crew’s Jewelry of the Month Club, Vosges Lunar Chocolate of the Month Club and a flower subscription to H.Bloom. When you sign them up for a subscription to H.Bloom (check out their special and find out how you could get your first bouquet free) they’ll receive fresh flowers every month on the date they choose for delivery. If you have any one-time event floral needs or any questions, contact floral expert Ashley via email or by phone 312.344.1240.
Wrap it up with a hint: Print out a voucher of their “of-the-month” club or subscription and place in some accessories that might help them enjoy that gift each month (i.e. a vase for a flower subscription, a jewelry tray for a jewelry of the month club).
