Maybe you have been stuck at work, busy traveling, running errands, or maybe you just completely forgot that Christmas is only a few days away. (I’ve been there, lol!) Whatever your excuse is, you are now having to find last-minute gift ideas and I am sure you are scrambling and you think that you will never get it done. Slow your roll – I’ve got you! I have definitely been in the same boat before and it can be very stressful, but it is doable and you can do it. Here are a few great last minute gift ideas for everyone in the family:
This option is for anyone and everyone and it’s really easy to accomplish. I know that sometimes gift cards can be a bit ‘boring’ to gift, but gift cards can actually be the best gift, especially now that there are so many options. Gone are the days that you have to give a gift card that is just for one restaurant or establishment. Now, there are many gift cards (such as one called Happy Cards) that can go to a few different restaurants and other locations. For example, Happy Cards has a card option called Happy Lady. This card has options like The Cheesecake Factory, Sephora, Bed, Bath, & Beyond, Panera Bread, Spa Finder, and more all rolled into one card. They have different cards for different people in your family, so you can shop for everyone at once! The great thing about cards like this is that you can find them at your local stores – check out Target, Kroger, Publix, etc. and you will definitely find a card such as this one.
This idea is perfect for the movie lover or the person that always goes on date night. A program such as Movie Pass allows for three movies each month with each package and then depending on the package you buy, you get other perks like 3D movies, Imax movies, etc. The great thing about movie pass is that they send the subscription owner a credit card, so it’s easy to ‘buy’ their movies each month.
Dance classes are an amazing gift for Christmas, as well. First of all, your friends and family members will thank you for allowing them to learn something new and second of all, dance classes are a great way to get some extra exercise in.
Located in Red Bank, New Jersey, USA Ballroom offers gift certificates for dance classes and they allow you to choose from 1 Dance Lesson Gift Certificate or 5 Dance Lessons Gift Certificate, so it can be a very affordable and fun gift! USA Ballroom is a professional dance studio that offers dance lessons and socials to help you get in the groove and become more confident. I mean, who wants to dance at a wedding if they have no idea what they are doing?! Be the life of the party and learn some moves before you go! USA Ballroom teaches several styles of dancing.
From salsa lessons, swing dancing, and even Ballroom dancing, USA Ballroom will help you learn the moves that you want to know how to do. Personally, I think I would want to take a shot at Latin dancing! Owners, Brian and TJ are committed to helping all of their students fall in love with dance, no matter if it is recreationally or competitively.

A Gym Membership
To go along with the active theme, you could also give someone a gym membership! More and more people are starting to take physical activity more seriously now and with the New Year coming up, I am sure that even more people will want to get their New Year started off on the right foot. A lot of people would love to have a gym membership, but will not spend the money to purchase one themselves. There are a million excuses why someone you care about will not spend the money on a gym membership for themselves, so giving it as a gift is a thoughtful way to say “I love you enough for you to be healthy.”
Can you ever have too many cozy items? I don’t think so! With the cold weather here to stay for a while, I say pack on the warm socks, fuzzy blankets, and infinity scarves! Old Navy has some great Christmas gifts right now, for great prices. Infinity scarves are eight dollars, beanies are four dollars, and socks are four dollars, as well. For blankets, I would check out Amazon, Target, or even Home Goods for some great options! Pro tip: If you have an Amazon Prime membership, now is the time to get great use out of it! If you are still shopping for gifts, hurry and check to see what can be delivered in time! You might be surprised at what you will find!
