I feel like I say this every year, but I can’t believe it’s officially the holiday season. Christmas is less than two weeks away and as always, I am number one on the late Christmas shoppers list. However, according to family, friends, and peers, I’m certainly not the only one, which makes me feel just a little less embarrassed about my lack of better planning. Since next weekend is the last weekend before Christmas, I thought it would be helpful to round up a list of last-minute gift ideas for both him and her — whether it’s for your mother, father, brother, sister, significant other, or best friend. This may also be a great time to take advantage of expedited shipping if you’re ordering online or pay a visit to your local retailer!
6 Gift Ideas For Her
1. Veran Color Blocked Heeled Boot (Click Link) – JustFab
A huge trend this season has been snakeskin boots for women. If the woman in your life is a style enthusiast and loves being on-trend, these boots from JustFab are perfect for her!
2. Gold Tone, Crystal Accent Armitron Watch (Click Link) – JCPenney
A gift that has definitely made it onto my Christmas list this year is this gold-tone, crystal accent watch by Armitron. If the woman in your life is a “watch-girl,” then this gift will certainly not disappoint. My everyday watch is an Armitron that I purchased from JCPenney about ten years ago and it’s still in great condition, so this should make your decision easy.
3. ASOS Design Hooded Slim Coat (Click Link) – ASOS
With temperatures dropping and the colder months ahead, gifting a peacoat or any type of coat (depending on the recipient’s preference of course) for Christmas is always a great idea. It’s a perfect match for a stylish pair of boots!
4. 14K Gold Hoop Earrings (Click Link) – JCPenney
This goes without saying, but jewelry will always be a top choice for awesome gift ideas for women. During the holiday season is the best time to take advantage of the great deals on fine jewelry.
5. Women’s Cozy Knit Slipper (Click Link) – Ugg
Gift ideas for women are not limited to just the stylish pieces. We love a great self-care item, which is why these slippers by Ugg are perfect.
6. Chain Trim Tote (Click Link) – JustFab
Most people say that women are hard to shop for, but I beg to differ. Gift us with a nice handbag and you’ve already done a great job!
6 Gift Ideas For Him
1. Nike Miami Club Pullover Hoodie (Click Link) – East Bay
For women, cold weather means sweater weather, but for men, it means hoodie season. Give the gift of Nike this Christmas by gifting the man in your life with this Nike pullover hoodie. Hoodies are a staple item in a man’s wardrobe and one of the most underrated gifts!
2. Nike Air Max ’97 (Click Link) – East Bay
Ladies, if you’re observant of men’s fashion, then you know that even when they are casually dressed, the colorway between their hoodies/ shirts and shoes matter! If you’re going to gift a guy with a Nike hoodie, then it’s only right to complete the outfit by purchasing the matching Nike sneakers — and the turquoise, pink, and black Nike Air Max ’97’s are perfect.
3. Wood Phone Docking Station (Click Link) – Amazon
When we think of Christmas gifts for men, we often think of the classic gifts listed above like clothes, shoes, jewelry, and colognes. Although all of those things are in fact amazing gifts, we don’t realize how cool other things are until we discover them for the first time. If you’re anything like me, you love a good organizer. This Wood Phone Docking Station will keep everything on his nightstand or dresser nice and neat — something both of you can appreciate!
4. NOIR Ultra Shea Body Cream (Click Link) – Bath & Body Works
Men are not the only ones who love for their significant other to smell amazing. The women do as well! Noir by Bath & Body Works takes men’s fragrance to a whole nother level. Bath & Body Works describes this scent as an air of mystery with an exotic blend of black cardamom, smoky vanilla, and a hint of musk. I promise this gift is the one!
5. Men’s Plaid Flannel Pajama Pants (Click Link) – Target
Like women, men also appreciate comfy sleepwear — like pajama pants. Another one of those underrated gifts!
6. Caravelle Designed By Bulova Men’s Black Stainless Steel Watch (Click Link) – JCPenney
Watches have always been great Christmas gifts for men. There were so many beautiful watches to choose from, but this Caravelle Chronograph Black Stainless Steel Men’s Watch is a definite winner!
