No matter how early I start my shopping there are always a few gifts that creep up on me last minute. With the major shopping days behind us, now is the time for some last minute ideas to help complete your gift list this year.
Think meal kits, tea, coffee or wine subscriptions or craft kits for kids. Their confirmation can be printed and placed in a holiday card or the first box can show up on their doorstep as a surprise! Many of the popular subscriptions offer recyclable or reusable packaging for a sustainable and thoughtful gift.
Giving the gift of an experience is a great way to surprise your loved ones. Choose a trip to the local museum, a cooking class for two or a paint night. For those on your list that seem to have everything, a new experience could be just the gift they need this year.
Gift cards for shopping are a great option but don't be afraid to think outside the box. Consider credits to Audible for the ardent reader, AirBNB for the traveler, or a gift card to local farm to table restaurant for a date night.
