TICK TOCK! TICK TOCK! Last-minute gift ideas

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).

 

Happy Gifting!
