Christmas falls on the same day every single year, yet somehow it always manages to appear out of nowhere. And while some people knock out their shopping lists weeks in advance, most of us find ourselves rushing to the mall on Christmas Eve to buy gifts for our family and friends.
Holiday shopping can be a stressful part of the season, so here are some gift ideas you can pick up for anyone on your list if you’re doing some last-minute shopping.
A Headspace subscription for soothing meditations
The past two years have been full of anxiety and uncertainty, which makes Headspace an extra thoughtful gift. They can listen to guided sessions, calm down with breathing exercises and read up on the importance of mindfulness. Start them off with a monthly membership, with the first 7 days free.
A low-maintenance plant service
If they are looking to become a plant parent, but don’t know where to start, this houseplant subscription from The Sill delivers an easy-care hand-potted plant in a chic ceramic planter every month to their door. It’s the perfect opportunity to cultivate their own at-home plant nursery.
A reusable water bottle to keep them hydrated
No matter if they’re sipping iced coffee, Diet Coke or water, this insulated reusable water bottle will keep their favorite beverage hot or cold all day. The Roamer Bottle is eco-friendly and comes with a metal carrying ring that makes it easy to take on the go.
A pair of wireless earbuds for easy listening
Know someone in need of wireless earbuds? With a pair of AirPods, their life will be changed forever when they’re not wasting time untangling wires. These earbuds are sweat and water resistant and allow up to 6 hours of listening time with one charge.
A gift card to Warby Parker for the daily glasses-wearer
Glasses not only help people see, but they also help people express their individual sense of style. Warby Parker offers affordable prescription glasses and non-prescription sunglasses that are equally as good-looking. Gift cards start at $50 and are available in both physical and digital forms.
A Birchbox subscription for beauty and skincare lovers
Need a fast, yet thoughtful gift? For all the beauty and skincare lovers on your list, gift them a subscription to Birchbox. It’s an affordable way to find and learn about new beauty, skincare and grooming products without spending too much on full-sized options the recipient might not like.
A weighted blanket to keep them warm and cozy
To help them brace for the colder months, consider getting them a weighted blanket. Better than your average blanket, a weighted blanket helps relieve stress and they’ll achieve faster and deeper sleep. Choose the color and weight that best suits them and their needs.
