Last Minute Gift Guide for Christmas Shopping Procrastinators

You haven't even started Christmas shopping yet.

You only have that one person left who is so hard to buy for.

You already finished your Christmas shopping, but you just realized that you forgot someone.

No matter what reason you have to Christmas shop at the last minute, I've got you covered.  Here is the perfect gift guide for you to finish off your Christmas shopping from the comfort of your home all in time for December 25th:

Below I have posted some affiliate links, which means that I may make a small commission (at no extra cost to you) if you make a purchase after clicking on those links.  Also, I was given a free year of ABCmouse and free copies of Why Just Survive When You Can Thrive and Count to Nine to review, but all opinions are my own.  Please see the disclosure page for more info!

Give a gift that lasts all year!  It's perfect for a family, a child, an individual, or a couple.  You can give them a year membership to a zoo or aquarium, state or National park, a golf club, a museum, the YMCA, and so much more! 

Gift Cards
This one is obvious, right?  Well, it doesn't have to be impersonal.  Get the movie lover a gift card to Redbox or the movie theater.  Buy the overwhelmed family a gift card to a grocery or restaurant meal delivery service.  Give a gas card to your friend who loves to travel.  Really put your heart into it and leave a sweet note: for the next midnight showing; for the night all 3 kids have soccer games; for your next road trip...

Educational Games
ABCmouse is our favorite!  My daughter loves all of their fun learning games and activities - she is always asking if she can play it!  Giving ABCmouse as a gift to your child, niece or nephew, or godchild would be such a fun and educational gift that would last all year!

Need to buy a gift for a book lover?  Buy a digital copy!  It can be sent to their Kindle or E-reader or it can be printed off.  My top choices (for moms) are Count to Nine, Why Just Survive When You Can Thrive, Homeschooling Your Preschooler, Your Morning Manual, The Lazy Liturgical, and The Glorious Ordinary Bible Study.  But you can find almost anything you'd like on Amazon!

Subscription Box
You can find subscription boxes for pretty much anything - toys and activities, fashion, jewelry, your faith (see below), and more!

Faith-Filled Subscription
Give a gift that will help your loved one grow in their faith.  Buy a Blessed is She Membership for online faith-building workshops and prayer journals for a female friend or loved one.  Give the Magnificat (for adults) and the Magnifikid (for kids) for daily Mass readings, prayers, and activities (for kids).  Check out subscription boxes like Catholic Box and The Little Catholic Box for a set of Catholic goodies delivered monthly.

Printable Wall Art
Instant home decor!  You can get prints for the holidays, to inspire them in their faith, for a nursery or kid's room, kitchen, office, or classroom.  Give a gift that beautifies where they live, work, and play!

Date Nights
Sometimes I think my husband is the hardest person to buy for!  Well, why not give him a special date night or even a year's worth?  The Dating Divas have so many neat ideas (like date nights around the world!) to bring you closer to your spouse.  Christmas gift + strengthening your marriage: now, that's a double win!

The possibilities are endless!  You can get tickets to sporting events, plays, musicals, the ballet, concerts, etc.  What an awesome surprise that would be to open up the gift of a fun, shared experience!

How can you give of yourself to your loved one?  You could offer to babysit their kids, clean their house, drive them to a doctor's appointment, or make them dinner.  Yes, we should do these things throughout the year, but it would be extra special to offer it freely this Christmas season.

Last minute Christmas shopping doesn't have to be rushed and come off as last minute as it truly was.  Think with your heart and use the ideas above to pick out the perfect Christmas gifts for your loved ones this week!

Merry Christmas!
