Gift Guide: 5 Thoughtful Last Minute Gifts

Scrambling for gift ideas? We’ve got you covered. Going into the final stretch of the holiday season, a majority of Americans are far from finished with their holiday shopping, according to the latest American Express Spending & Saving Tracker. Seventy-three percent (73%) plan to shop last minute (vs. 79% in 2014), as most wait to find the best deals (44% vs. 46% in 2014).

So here we are just a short while away from that big merry deadline. Let's face it many of us are procrastinators and end up putting gift buying off until it’s almost too late. Well, I’m here to tell you you’re in luck this year. You still have plenty of time to give great gifts people will love!

1.  For the Insomniac

We all know the right mattress is important. The perfect pillow can be just as vital to a good night's sleep.

Which is why we love products from Tempur-Pedic. The most recent launch for the brand is the TEMPUR-Contour pillow collection, built for specific sleep positions, the pillows feature a dual feel, using firm TEMPUR material for neck support and soft TEMPUR material for head comfort, each of which were created uniquely for the pillows. The TEMPUR-Contour pillows come in three different options: Side-to-Side ($129), Side-to-Back ($129) and Side-to-Side Breeze ($169).

2. For the Foodie

Plated gift cards make great last-minute presents to help friends and family get started on a subscription to a better dinner experience. They’ll receive weekly deliveries of chef-designed recipes and perfectly portioned ingredients right to their door. Better still, it only takes a few minutes for you to set up. 

3. For the Design Lover

We love the Moto X Pure Edition collection designed by the iconic Jonathan Adler. The limited-edition collection features three eye-catching, stylish & high-performing phones. 

As an industry leader Motorola is leading the new standard with a selection of unlocked phones. Now, it’s easy to skip the contract: just choose your carrier and phone, get the right SIM card, and you’re set.

The lightning-fast, water resistant Moto X Pure Edition offers more than 30 hours of battery life and has a 21 megapixel camera that takes fast, crystal clear pictures. 


4. Perfect For Any Situation

Usually we'd say scents are a personal expression and a tricky gift. However, the holiday scents and delights available at Bath & Body Works are always good to stockpile for gifting moments including: secret Santa, hostess gifts, extended family.  We adore The Perfect 3-Wick Candle! The blend of vegetable wax and wicks that won't burn out, the candles melt consistently & evenly, radiating enough fragrance to fill an entire room. Burning approximately 25 - 45 hours 

5. Gorgeous Gifts That Give Back

Christmas should be a magical time for everybody. That's why, this festive season, The Body Shop is partnering up with WaterAid to provide families  with safe drinking water they so desperately need. For every specially selected gift sold, they’ll make a contribution of 4.4p which can pay for one day of safe water for a family in Ethiopia. You can find out more about WaterAid's work at
