Christmas is the biggest holiday revolving around gift-exchanging. Many people spend weeks planning and saving for Christmas gifts.
However, sometimes we can forget to include a friend on our gift list or we may be too busy to do our Christmas shopping. That is when we need to quickly come up with the perfect gift… or rather the best thing we can find at hand. The result of our blunder may be disastrous and it can disappoint people for whom you care a lot. To save you the embarrassment, we have prepared a list of last-minute Christmas gifts that can quickly save you face.
Gift cards as a presents alternative are gaining more and more popularity. That is so because it doesn’t require much thought or time. Gift cards simply set you free from the responsibility to pick a Christmas gift. In addition, now they can be even purchased online.
If you want to find a present that doesn’t scream “last-minute solution”, then frame a photo. Look through your albums and pick a picture that has captured you and your friend in some sweet or funny moment.
That is suitable only when you know the interests and the hobbies of the person. There are magazines on every theme and topic that you can think of. In addition, magazine subscriptions come at great prices towards the end of the year!
DVDs, Books, Music Albums
If you don’t have the time, to search for a movie with your friend’s favourite actor just grab the most popular one. Then you can say that you got this idea from a newspaper article, for example. The same goes with books and music CDs.
Food or Candy
No, we don’t mean home-made meals. Get a box of chocolates, a bottle of wine, or even a cake. This gift probably won’t survive to see 2013, but at least it is very tasty.
This is one of the best last-minute Christmas presents. Gifts sets can be found in almost every big store. Often they are thematic and include nice decorations, candy and flowers.
