The Last-Minute Gift Guide

The Last-Minute Gift Guide

We are getting down to the wire! For all those last-minute shoppers who enjoy the rush of adrenaline that comes with heading to the mall on the last day before Christmas, get ready…it’s almost go-time. But if you are reading this post and secretly cursing yourself for waiting until the very last minute — realizing that you have missed the final day to order online and have your purchases arrive before the big day — and swearing that you will never put yourself in this position again, then listen up.

What if I told you that by visiting just a few stores you could have all of your Christmas shopping done? You can. Have a Nordstrom Rack, Target, Anthropologie, Starbucks, and Ulta near you? Great! You’re all set.

The Nordstrom Rack has great gifts for everyone on your list (like this initial circle pendant necklace). I could have done all of my shopping in that one store alone when I was there over the weekend. Oh, wait. I did!

Above, I’ve rounded up last-minute gift ideas that will help you out. With any luck, you’ll find them in a store near you — just in time for the holidays.

If you still need more inspiration, check out these gift guides for her, him, the host/hostess, and stocking suffers. Happy Holidays!



  1. This is such a great last minute help guide, Vanessa! I agree, those stores are heaven sent when you still need to cross some people off your list. I’m loving the mug for the coworker, it doesn’t get better than that! I just finished getting all my gifts; I just have to do the wrapping. My dad worked at a toy store growing up, so it’ll be done in no time (I’ve wrapped more gifts at that store than I’d like to remember) and then I can just….breathe, haha! I hope you’re having a lovely day so far!



    1. Thanks, Jalisa! Do you want some more presents to wrap? I can send mine over. LOL! I just have a couple more left and then I’m done. Aren’t those stores the best when you run out of ideas on what to get people? I always get inspiration from browsing Target, Anthropologie, and the Nordstrom Rack. Wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas!
