Easy last minute holiday gift ideas


With Hanukkah having already started and Christmas less than one week away, some people may be scrambling to get last minute gifts for their friends and family. Luckily, there are still thoughtful gift options available that will not have to be shipped and will not be difficult to obtain.

For mothers, sisters, friends: Try a manicure or pedicure gift certificate. Go to your nearest nail or hair salon and ask if they offer gift cards in the form of a certificate for a manicure or pedicure. If the person you are buying a gift for prefers other salon or spa treatments, a certificate for a facial or massage is an easy substitute.

For fathers, brothers, friends: You can never go wrong with clothing. Boxers, scarves, gloves and simple shirts are easy standbys that are impossible to have too many of. These items are affordable because they are sold at stores such as Target and Old Navy.

For anyone: Baked goods are a personal and thoughtful gift that everyone enjoys. There are also countless recipe options, so you can bake anything based on your level of experience or effort you would like to put in.
