We are just days away from Christmas, and if you guys are anything like me, you keep thinking of gifts you still have to buy … For me, it is the little gifts for friends that I always tend to leave until the last minute. With all the holiday craziness, these gifts tend to get pushed to the back burner (we can’t do it all). I know that I can always go the traditional route of a card and a nice bottle of wine, but during the holidays, I like to take the opportunity to come with something a little extra special.

This year, I have found five great friend gifts that are either easy to go pickup, or can still be ordered online in time for Christmas! I hope these gift ideas help some of you guys out with your last-minute holiday shopping!

What are some of your go-to gifts this time of year? I’m always looking for new ideas!


Echo Dot1. Amazon Echo Dot … Thank goodness for Amazon Prime! With fast delivery and endless options, Amazon is always a good place to start shopping for your last-minute gifts. The Echo dot is a great little devise that is a hands-free, and voice-controlled with a small built-in speaker, perfect for listing to music — It can also connect to your speakers or headphones over Bluetooth. At $29.99 it’s a great gift idea!

Cards Against Humanity2. Cards Against Humanity … The title of this game says it all! It’s wildly inappropriate, and a fun gift for the adults. It makes for a playful holiday party gift, and often gets opened up right then and there. This game is sold at many places, including Target for $25.00

Pineapple Candle3. Sunny Life Pineapple Candle … You can’t ever really go wrong with giving someone a beautiful candle. What I love about this one is that instead of a pretty jar, the actual candle is what is so pretty! It’s a nice gift, that also makes for lovely décor. Also, did you know that pineapples were the colonial symbol of hospitality to welcome someone in your home? Available at Nordstrom for $30.00.

4. Bubbles & Godiva Gift Set … Sometimes you don’t get to see everyone that you want to over the holidays. When that happens, I like to send a special little something anyways! has some wonderful gift options like this bottle of Brut and Godiva chocolates. $49.99

Nordstrom Throw5. Nordstrom Chevron Plush Faux Fur Throw … Everyone loves a cozy throw, you can never have enough of them! This one from Nordstrom is beautiful, ships in time for Christmas and is even on sale for $39.00!

    Have not visited in a while! busy homeschooling momma….soo we are on Christmas brake and we already traveled to “In-loves…aka In-laws” for the holidays!! Nanna and Grandpa is keeping them busy…love them.
    Because we love to play games in our family!! while looking for new games I
    saw this one the you mentioned…I did not buy it…for gift or us…It certainly is
    Inappropriate!! it promote so much of the smut that is we are trying to avoid every day

  • Ina Turner

    Anyway…to each his own… but I will not promote it!!! will need to wash your mind out with praying after playing it…like all your others choices…especially
    the candle. We all have so many things already most that we do not need..sooo most of our gifts are going to be wonderful books to enlighten
    the minds so that we can be ready for the new year.
