For those people on your list who can't begin a day without their one or two cups of coffee, a cute mug is the way to go! Fill your chosen mug with some candy and add in a coffee table book your friend will love for a gift they will remember every time they reach for a cup of tea or coffee.

What is better than curling up in your favorite blanket, putting on a Christmas movie and drinking a warm cup of hot cocoa with marshmallows? You can give your friends this gift in the cutest way this season. All you have to do is buy a couple of jars and layer in the ingredients for hot chocolate. You can even create personalized labels to go with these! Throw in a pair of fuzzy socks and some facemasks to this gift bag, and you're halfway to the greatest movie night ever!

For the Beauty Guru

What do you get for your makeup-obsessed friend who was every palette and every lip kit? Try gifting them some lesser-known makeup brands they can experiment with. These vegan lip jellies have great reviews and are also super affordable! Add in some rosewater facial spray and a bronzer or blush and you're good to go! 


For the Writer

Although somewhat of a lost art, writing in a journal is something a lot of people still do. I myself love the feeling of opening up a brand new notebook with blank pages and filling them up with thoughts and ideas. This is such a simple gift and there are so many fun and unique journals you can find online that are perfect for the person on your list. This gift is not only useful for writers, but also for students or anyone who could use a place to jot down some notes.

For the Party Animal

We all have that friend who is the life of the party and is always down for some fun. What better gift than a drinking game to get the party started? Not only are these kinds of games affordable, but they're also something people will actually want to use! Add in a bottle of wine or your friend's favorite liquor and get ready for some fun!



Those are just a few ideas for any last-minute shoppers out there. Holiday shopping can be a little stressful sometimes, but spending time with family and friends and enjoying Christmas is what it's all about! Merry Christmas!
