Last-Minute Christmas Gift Guide

Merry almost Christmas! So I’m sure you’ve seen a lot of Christmas gift guides this season already, as almost every blogger does them. But, this one is specifically for last minute ideas since we only have 5 days until Christmas-which is absolutely insane, because the holiday season has gone by sooo fast. I’ve yet to check everything off my holiday to-do list: binge watch holiday movies, make Christmas cookies, decorate a gingerbread house, etc- so I have a lot to do.

Buuuttt, on the bright side, at least I have most of my Christmas shopping done. However, if you’re not quite as lucky, I’ve got some easy and inexpensive ideas for you. These are all pretty much straightforward, meaning you don’t have to think too much about them, which also means no matter how picky someone is, they will most likely end up liking these. You can find these at a lot of places, which means you don’t have to go out late on Christmas eve to scavenge for the perfect gift. Also, if you’re feeling extra generous, throw together a few of these in one basket (or a stocking), and, viola, you have the perfect little care package!

Anyways, without further ado, here they are!

Lotion/Body Cream

With the winter being the peak of dry skin season, everyone can afford to stock up on lotion. Bath and Body always works, (twisted peppermint is my go-to!), but it’s also fun finding new brands and scents. This lotion has been one of my favorites lately, because I’ve never seen this scent anywhere else, and it smells so yummy. Not to mention, it has one of the coolest packagings I’ve ever seen. 🙂


Ahh candles, who doesn’t love a good candle. You can practically find these anywhere now and for good prices too. They just feel so sentimental and comforting and everyone could use some more of that in their life, so what better gift to give someone.

Bath Salts/Bombs

Bombs, salts, scrubs.. you get the picture. These also are a must for dry skin season and are the perfect little gesture of coziness to give someone, so they can relax and do a little self care. This body scrub literally smells so sweet and good enough to eat!

Coffee Mug

You just can’t go wrong with a coffee mug. Even if someone doesn’t drink coffee, they can always use it for tea, hot chocolate, or even a pen holder if they’re not in the mood for hot drinks haha. Because, let’s be real-everyone kind of has a collection of mugs going on and will always enjoy adding yet another one to it.

Makeup Bag/Small Pouch

This is something most people probably don’t think about buying for themselves, but could probably find a use for, whether it’s for makeup or something totally random. They’re are so many cute ones everywhere, and you can customize it to who you’re getting it for by finding one that fits their personality, i.e. different colors and patterns. You could throw in some makeup products, too, if you’re feeling generous. How adorable is the design of this bag, though? It just makes me feel really cool haha.

Hair Accessories

How many times have you lost a hair tie? Too many to count, right? I feel like we’re all in the same boat with this one, so why not gift someone some more hair accessories. And why not take it a step further and make it more exciting with a scrunchie. These are pretty trendy right now, and I’m all for it, because I think they’re adorable.

Cozy Socks

Ok, so I know some of us like to pretend that socks aren’t a fun gift to get for Christmas, but I will gladly take them anytime. What would winter be without comfy socks, after all? Nobody dislikes these unless you dislike being comfy and cozy. Again, it’s easy to customize it to who you are getting them for by choosing designs you think they’d like.

You can find all of the products in this post that are from Being at any Ulta location now, so make sure to try them out!

Thanks for reading, everyone! Hope this helped you if you’re still needing to check some gifts off of your list! Merry Christmas!
