The last 4 minutes with the gifts of Christmas that don’t feel last-minute

The best gifts, even last-minute, thought and effort behind them.

Christmas is just around the corner, which means that it may be just too late to make a donation online. So, what are your options? How do you make sure that you are the most important person in your life happy?

Here are four gift ideas to make sure the people you have forgotten is not the feeling that you forgot them.



The ultimate adult gift. Certainly, not everyone drinks booze, but if they do, you have many options. A nice wine is always considered a good gesture. If you have a good friend who enjoy spirits instead, spend $50 on a good bottle of whiskey. Maybe your sister-in-law enjoy a beautiful Southern Comfort cocktail — in this case, a bottle and a few of the ingredients that go into the beverage, and package them together. And why not grab a large bottle of Jagermeister for your old college roommate who you have Metallica tickets?

You really can’t go wrong. And better yet, most liquor stores carry special gift box sets around the holidays that are glass.


Pet Toys


Don’t know much about your colleagues, but need to think of a gift quickly? Well, she is always mentioning her Doberman named Killer, and her Instagram is filled with pictures of the Murderer on the couch, on the bed, and barking at the postman. OK, that is an extreme scenario, but animal lovers love their animals more than anything in the world, which is more than the man. So if you know a pet lover who has a dog, go to Petco or PetSmart and get a toy they can enjoy together in the park, or even a bone. That’s right — a bone. Dogs, regardless of size, love to chew away at ’em, and it is a perfectly acceptable gift for anyone who considers the pet part of the family. And if she was a cat, pet shops have all sorts of great items from a friend feline would love. You can’t go wrong with squeaky toys, lasers, and wands. After all, a happy animal makes for a happy owner.

Pop Culture And Junk


If you know that a movie, TV or comic fanatic, remember this one word: Funko. The company is a moment that recently debuted collectible vinyl figures from every corner of the pop-culture. They have a license many different characters, from super heroes and sports icons, movie characters and rock stars. Children love it, and you will find plenty of options at your local comic shop, the mall, or even Wallgreens.

Your niece like a Disney princess? Your friend is a big Aaron Rodgers fan? Your colleague can’t stop talking about that scene in “The Empire Strikes Back”? Funko makes figures for them all. Each only costs about $10, also.

For someone extra special, it is not too late to head to your local cinema and pick up a couple of film processed which can be exchanged for an upcoming blockbuster. Or hop online and treat your special someone to tickets for a concert or sporting event.


Gift certificates


Gift certificates are indeed risky. You can easily offend someone depending on what kind of gift card you give them, so think about this real hard. For example, if your brother is fond of his PlayStation 4, that is a slam-dunk — your local drugstore probably sells Amazon and Best Buy gift cards. Your cousin has been wanting to try Hulu or Netflix, and behold, they sell gift cards online, or even at retailers such as Target. Just be wary of giving someone a random gift card in the store or in a restaurant they would not want. Because if they hate you for Applebee’s or Cheesecake Factory gift card, you just opened a can of worms.

Whatever you buy, do not forget that the best gifts, even last-minute, thought and effort behind them.
