This two-minute read might just be your get-out-of-jail-free card if you’ve left it late to buy Christmas gifts.
A conversation with my colleagues recently made me realise that with just over a week to go before Christmas Day, most of us still had people to buy gifts for.
So, if you’re in the same situation and need some late/last-minute present inspiration, check out these 15 ideas.
To pamper – a spa day at a local beauty salon.
To relax – a luxuriously scented candle (look at Jo Malone if you want to push the boat out).
To savour – a chocolate box subscription (Hotel Chocolat is worth a look for the chocolate connoisseur).
To de-stress – a shiatsu neck and shoulder massaging machine.
To experiment – The Great British Bake Off latest recipe book or maybe Jamie Oliver’s Christmas Cookbook.
The tech lover – a 3-in-1 Apple device charging station.
The early riser – a sunrise wake-up light alarm clock.
The fitness fan – an electric mini-massage tool.
The thrill-seeker – an experience day – hundreds of options out there, including driving around a racetrack, sailing, or parachuting.
The fan – a personalised video message from a sportsperson or celebrity.
For the Home
As a home lover, no last-minute list from me would be complete without five gifts you can buy for people to use in their homes.
- A marble desk organiser.
- A customised house portrait.
- Personalised coasters.
- Frame a favourite photo.
- Hardback coffee table books – National Geographic’s Destinations of a Lifetime or perhaps one from our local Curiosity Bookshop in Runcorn.
And remember, when we shop locally in Runcorn, we make a big difference to our community.
Where will you be doing your last-minute gift buying?
Thanks for reading and happy shopping.
