Last Minute Gift Ideas for the Holidays

If you find yourself in need of a quick and easy gift idea, then let me help! I have a few ideas that will work for a few different types of people that might be on your holiday gift list this year. Use these as inspiration as you put together your holiday shopping list (or your own wish list!), and you’ll be finalizing your Christmas shopping before you know it!

And now for the best last minute gift ideas for the holiday, read on!

For the Fitness Fanatic

If you’re like me, then one of the easiest ways to get through a workout is with something good to listen to. I know I’m much more likely to finish that brisk walk, jog, or bike ride with the help of my favorite tunes or a good podcast!

Sometimes it’s hard to listen to hear the world around you when you have your headphones or earbuds in. Fortunately, there’s a solution – AfterShokz open-ear headphones allow you to hear it all while still having a great listening experience. The Trekz Air are so lightweight you might even forget you have them on! They don’t go in your ear, instead, they rest on the outside so that you can hear what’s going on around you and you don’t have the discomfort of earbuds. Pick a color for everyone on your list; they come in Midnight Blue, Forest Green, Slate Gray, or Canyon Red!

For the Fashionista

Have a fashionista on your list? She’ll love Fun Socks new collaboration with Fiorucci! These street-style-ready socks are sheer, come in a variety of colors, and are perfect for pairing with heels, sneakers, or peeking out of your favorite fashion girl’s ankle boots this winter.

Beyond socks, Fun x Fiorucci also offers other fun items like t-shirts, winter accessories, and more sock styles. Find more at or in person in at their retail locations in Soho in NYC or Venice in California. Don’t forget to use code BABBLEBOXX at checkout to save an additional 15% by 12/31/18!

For that someone special

For the special person in your life, treat them to something they’ll treasure forever! Charles & Colvard has a variety of fine jewelry options that will make her day. From sparkling moissanite necklaces to stackable rings and classic solitaire earrings, she’ll be thrilled with a fine jewelry gift this holiday season!

Did you know Moissanite is the world’s most brilliant gem? It’s a white gemstone with unique optical properties that help it outsparkle all the rest! It’s a naturally occurring gemstone that is recreated in a lab, and because it’s made in a lab, it’s environmentally responsible and ethically sourced.

Give her the gift of sparkle this season with something special from the new Signature Collection from Charles & Colvard. The Forever One halo necklace would make a great gift for her! You can follow along with Charles & Colvard on social media for special savings throughout the holiday season.

For the hostess with the mostess

Looking for a gift to bring a holiday host this season? Chesapeake Bay Candle makes some of the most delightful candles. The one I have is the serenity + calm, which is a lovely blend of essential oils including rosemary, eucalyptus, camphor, lavender, cedarwood, orange, patchouli, bergamot, and thyme.

Founded in 1994, Chesapeake Bay Candle is inspired by the serene beauty of the Chesapeake Bay and Maryland’s Eastern Shore, and uses botanical inspired ingredients so we can all experience this at home! The Chesapeake Bay Mind & Body Collection offers mood-enhancing home fragrance products perfect for gifting, including soy wax candles delivering a clean burn, reed diffusers and 100% pure essential oils, all designed and poured here in the USA.

Give the gift of wellness and encourage self-care by treating your favorite host or hostess with a wellness candle from the Mind & Body Collection. Choose from awaken + invigorate made with lemongrass and eucalyptus, stillness + purity made with rose, cedar leaf, and orange, or serenity + calm with lavender and thyme.

For the Beauty Guru

For the beauty guru who has everything, why not give a new beauty tool that she’s sure to love! The Finishing Touch Flawless makes facial hair removal easier. It gently erases facial hair instantly and painlessly. For a smoother makeup application, remove peach fuzz and facial hair. Or, remove stray hairs around the hairline, under the nose, on the chin, or near the brows. The hair won’t grow back thicker, and there’s no worry of redness, bumps or irritation.

With a hypoallergenic 18k gold-plated head, built-in light, and it’s cute packaging, she’ll love to join The Flawless Club with the Finishing Touch Flawless!

For the Mixologist

Have a friend or family member who loves whipping up the latest and greatest cocktails? Get them a cocktail shaker and glass set! Pop into ALDI this holiday season to pick up easy last minute gifts like drinkware and dinnerware from the Crofton Chef’s Collection, available in ALDI stores starting Dec. 19.

Each item in the collection is available for a limited time and for under $10 each! Find the Crofton Chef’s Collection Cocktail Shaker, complete with easy cocktail recipes for just $9.99. The Chef’s Collection Moscow Mules or Wine Glasses make it easy to dress up your favorite cocktails at just $8.99 for a set of 2!

And with that, I hope these gift ideas make checking things off your Christmas shopping list this year just a bit easier! I know I’d love to be gifted any of the items on this list, and I hope one or more of these gifts will make someone on your list smile this holiday season.
