’Twas the week before Christmas, and all through the house, not a present was purchased, not even one in the house!
No joke.. I haven’t began shopping… I’m all about the last minute Christmas gift shopping this year obviously. I’m so not a last minute person, so it is killing me.
Life happens though, and so I compiled a list of thoughtful yet last minute gifts that people are sure to love!
1. Coffee (The gift of life/energy)
More than just a gift card to Starbucks (which is good too…), you can get someone some personalized coffee!
Driftaway coffee lets you order a sampler pack, you review it, and then they know what kids of coffee you like going forward. It even has your name on it!
Want to shop local? Go to your locally owned and operated coffee shop and buy a bag of coffee, mug, and a little gift card. Done and done!
2. Gift of Time
Give your significant other the gift of your time. Make a little card with the date of a special date you are going to take them on. You plan it all out and do something they love to do. Go to the ballet? Out to eat and a movie? Go to a sports game?? Whatever you know they love to do.
Gifting to a friend or relative with kids? Give them the gift of a night out and you watch their kids. Free babysitting is as good as gold!
3. Gift of Fitness
Has your significant other or friend been dying to try out a spin class, barre class, or other fitness routine? Give them a gift card for some classes! Plus, everyone will be setting New Year goals. This way you beat the crowds!!
Wanting to shop local? Pick a local studio! Here in Louisville, B.You Fitness is locally owned and operated… and I’m biased because I teach there. 😉
Your friend have kiddos and they don’t want to leave them in childcare? Look for a Baby Bootcamp class near you! The one here in Louisville is awesome!
4. Pamper them
I don’t know a woman that doesn’t love a massage, pedicure, manicure, or facial.
Not sure about that for the man in your life? Does he like to decompress by golfing? running? reading? Get them something they can enjoy are relax.
Enough said. I’m addicted, and so is everyone else I know that tries it. Your friend hasn’t tried it? Leggings are the gateway drug. Not sure what to buy? Your local consultant (shopping local again!) has gift cards! Don’t have a consultant? Let me know! I know plenty.
Remember, it isn’t about the gifts you give or receive but the celebration of the birth of Jesus and being with the ones you love!
I hope you have a very Merry Christmas with the ones you love!
