Caught in the Crunch? Last Minute Gift Ideas can help you find that special something for any occasion in just a nick of time!
If you’re like me, you mean well, but somehow the occasion sneaks up on you and then you find yourself frustrated coming up with a gift idea at the last minute!
Don’t worry – you’re not alone in your frustration – it happens to all of us at some time or another.
So let’s not wait any longer and get straight to the Ideas:
Digital Photo Frames:
A picture’s worth a thousand words and thanks to technology you can give a gift with a thousand memories…digital photo frames are excellent for family & friends.
Load a collection of pictures onto the memory card, load it into the frame and you’ve got a rotating display of memories, snippets in time, for your loved one.
Depending on how long you waited to come up with last minute gift ideas food gifts are another good choice. You can either order them online and have them delivered (check the delivery options) or make some homemade food gifts: cookies, cakes, treats, or mixes (like hot cocoa)!
Homemade gifts work great for making something on the cheap – grab some colored cellophane wrap and a decorative plate and you’re ready to go with a gift that everyone will enjoy.
Show you were thinking of them with a gift card! There’s a gift card to satisfy just about every person’s fancy: restaurants, electronics, Wal-Mart, Kohls, Sears, Starbucks, iTunes, and more…
One of the best places to pick out a variety of gift cards is your local Wal-Mart – they sell cards from numerous merchants – a one stop shop for you last minute gift ideas.
These are similar to the food gifts, but offer a much broader variety, plus – gift baskets don’t have to include food. You can order these online or create one yourself. My wife and I love to make these for family at Christmas:
- Inexpensive basket or box
- A good Movie (DVD)
- Microwave Popcorn
- A couple cans of Soda Pop
Bam! A great gift for under $15 dollars.
A coffee mug with hot chocolate packages is a nice one to hand out at winter time.
Hope this gets your imagination going as you ponder those last minute gift ideas – I promise…next time I’ll buy my gifts ahead of time.
