Shhh, can you hear it? It’s Christmas approaching to your door, but you are not worried, you’re ready. Or aren’t you? Christmas tree? Check! Lights? Check! Roasted hen? Check! Christmas party outfit? Check! A gift for a special lady in your life? Uh-oh. You forgot this one little thing? Now, what are you going to do? Don’t worry. Although you are clearly in a bad position, it is not a dead end. We can help you find your way out. Here are some excellent last-minute Christmas gifts that will knock her socks off.
There is no way you will go wrong with anything chocolate. Every woman will be delighted with chocolate gifts, especially with all the diverse chocolate flavors, shapes, and wrappings. After you collect the treats, get a basket, put the chocolate inside, decorate with a bow, and voila – you have the sweetest gift of them all.
A Gift Card
This doesn’t sound like something very romantic or even thoughtful, but when you think about it, you will see that it is the greatest gift you can give to someone. You can never be sure what she really wants for Christmas, and guessing it can be a risky matter. A gift card will give her a chance to choose for herself, and that is all a woman could wish for.
It is impossible for ladies’ clothes to be cleared from all the shops, even though the Christmas shopping season is in its full swing. In fact, you will probably find a lot of great deals both online and offline, so you can save some money, too. Just be sure to know her exact size. If you know her body shape too, you will be able to find a flattering clothing piece she’ll adore. Knowing specifically the types of clothing you’re looking for, such as fabulous plus size dresses, A-line skirts, or sweater dresses, will fasten up the shopping.
In most parts of the world, Christmas means cold weather, so it only makes sense for everyone to want to warm up in some cozy knitted piece. That can be a stylish infinity scarf, a gorgeous beret hat, a pair of warm gloves or an oversized knitted blanket.
A Christmas CD
Since it’s the season to be jolly, you will be able to find a Christmas CD everywhere, even 5 minutes before all the stores close. However, this is not just a silly last-minute present, it is something that will put a smile on everyone’s face. Will you opt for some of the classics, such as Bing Crosby’s “White Christmas” or something of a newer date, like “Don’t Waste Your Wishes” by The Killers, is up to you.
A Winter Skincare Set
Winter weather can wreak havoc on one’s skin. The cold dries it out and the winds make it cracked. Show her that you care about her health and beauty by getting her a winter skincare set. Those are usually consisted of alcohol-free cleanser, serum, scrub and moisturizer (preferably with an SPF).
A Makeup Set
Speaking of sets, one that every woman, regardless of her age and lifestyle loves to have is a makeup set. Try to not skimp on the quality here – a quality eye shadow palette with four shades is a better choice than a cheap 24-shade alternative of suspicious origin. Also, keep an eye on trends. This season is all about glitter, fluorescent, dark lipstick and lip gloss.
These were some unmistakable tips for a last-minute Christmas gift for your mother, sister, girlfriend, wife, female friend or colleague. When she unwraps one of them, she won’t even notice that you bought it just a few days before Christmas. She’ll be so thrilled that she’ll think you’ve thought about it for weeks.
