Last Minute Gift Guide

Christmas is this weekend! Are you scrambling for a last minute gift idea? Don't worry, you're not alone. Here are some ideas for the different people in your life:

  • For your Nerdy co-worker:  A subscription to LootCrate, which is a box delivered monthly that is filled with fandom paraphernalia. With exclusive collectors items, comics, t-shirts and more this is a sure winner and the gift the keeps giving every month.
  • For that niece you are trying to reconnect with: A boss babe mug from Indigo and Mindy Kaling's book "Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?" Hot tip: read the book before you wrap it. It is hilarious and insightful, and your niece will think you are the coolest. 
  • For your child's piano teacher: A Starbucks gift card and mug (which are on sale right now, by the way). Yes, this is a classic gift that many people give and receive. However, it is one that is always appreciated and useful. Who doesn't love free Starbucks?
  • For your spouse: If you are struggling to find a gift for the spouse with no wish list, plan a weekend getaway for the two of you. Even if you only go to Banff, book a hotel for overnight and make a date-weekend out of it. Buy them a spontaneous gift while there for bonus points.
  • For your mother and/or father: Frame a photo of you with them and write a nice note, then put it in a basket with little "treat yourself" items, such as their favorite snack, a book they might like, a nice smelling candle or bath-bomb, etc. This is easy and inexpensive, but thoughtful!
  • For everyone else: Gift cards. A gift card is not thoughtless; it is exactly what 99% of people want. To give them something they can enjoy the day of the gift exchange, stick the gift card onto a bottle of wine, craft beer, or their favorite treat! Easy. 

It is the thought that counts at the end of the day. Don't put so much stress on yourself to find the perfect gift for every single person. Enjoy Christmas with your loved ones; this is what is most important, after all.
