We all know that feeling when suddenly, it is 2 days before Christmas and you are still missing presents for your mum, dad, uncle, sister and boyfriend. To make matters worse you also have no idea what to get, let alone where to get it from. *Let the panic set in*
Here are a couple of suggestions that may help you with the last minute run around – from shops you can rely on, FAST. I have tried to include something to fit various ages and budgets!
1. SCARF: With a wide range of scarves in various styles and colours, Very offers next day delivery on a number of items. See the scarf range HERE. A scarf can make a lovely gift, suitable for any age group. If that’s not exactly what you’re after, Very now offer everything from clothes to electrical to home & garden – so if you check out the website you’re bound to find something that fits the bill!
2. SLIPPERS: The perfect time of year for new slippers, and as long as you roughly know size, you can’t really go wrong. Next offer next day delivery to your home or nearest store! See the range HERE.
3. BOOK: ASOS now sell some great gifts, including books, with everything from recipe books to joke books. I saw this Avocado Cookbook and thought it would make a great gift. See HERE. Why do women get way more obsessed over avocados than men?! Is this just something I have noticed? I know I am guilty of loving a good guacamole. Either way, this gift could work for anyone and ASOS can get it to you in record time!
Note: I signed up for the ASOS “premier delivery” for £10 a year, which includes unlimited next day delivery and free returns all year round. It has proven very useful on many occasions, not just for emergency present buying but I find myself using it frequently for last minute outfit purchases. I would highly recommend it as it is well worth the money!
4. CANDLES: Something every woman can appreciate! Offering a great range from Yankee Candle to Bayliss & Harding, Debenhams can do next day delivery on any order placed before midnight. Hooray! See HERE.
5. PERFUME: We ladies can never have too many perfumes!! Treat your loved one to a brand new scent. Order from Debenhams for FREE next day delivery on perfumes! See HERE. Alternatively, The Perfume Shop also offer next day delivery for £3.99, see HERE.
6. PAMPER SET: This Burts Bees beauty set is an easy win in my opinion. A recognisable, good quality brand in pretty packaging for under £10. Job done. See on Amazon HERE. Amazon are wonderful at offering reliable next day delivery on a tonne of items, stocking everything under the sun, usually at the best prices you can find online.
7. WATCH: If you are looking to splurge on the lady in your life, ASOS do a great range of watches that I was seriously impressed with, such as this one by Olivia Burton HERE. Once again, ASOS to the rescue!
1. HEADPHONES: A wonderful stocking filler and easily accessible! Argos have a great range and you can actually get next day or even SAME DAY delivery for only £3.95! Crazy! See the full range HERE.
2. SPEAKERS: It is great to have a portable speaker, that fits in any room of the house and can connect to any device. A small bluetooth speaker wont put you out of pocket and makes a lovely gift! See the range from Argos HERE.
3. GROOMING: Bearded or not, every man needs a tidy up every now and again. This is also the kind of present they secretly rely on recieving, as they don’t buy it for themselves! ASOS do a range of grooming products whilst offering next day delivery on all items. See HERE.
4. NOVELTY SLIPPERS: When they complain they have cold feet but refuse to wear regular slippers, novelty ones can definitely be a game changer. The pooh head emoji slippers made me laugh out loud! On Amazon there are a tonne of fun choices all with prime delivery options. See HERE.
5. SMART PHONE PROJECTOR: With a tonne of great gift ideas for both genders and all ages, Prezzy Box could be an absolute saviour when it comes to last minute shopping. They have next day delivery options on a whole selection of products that are bound to inspire you. How about a smart phone projector?! A fun and unique gift, that I doubt he already has! See HERE.
6. BEER PONG SET: For over 18’s, a beer pong set is a great stocking filler. Come New Years Eve the guys will have this one in full swing. As mentioned earlier, Next have some great next day delivery options. See HERE.
7. PEN KNIFE: Men love their tools! A pen knife is a cool gift if the recipient doesn’t already have one. Practical and pocket size! Note: Not suitable for youngsters / use with caution. Amazon can have one with you by tomorrow. See HERE.
I hope this post gives you some inspiration for your final purchases, as well as pointing out a few shops that can still get you what you need.
It is important to note, presents aren’t everything. Whilst it is fun to spoil each other, Christmas is about spending time with your loved ones and remembering what’s really important. So enjoy your quality time and be kind to one another!
I hope you all have a fantastic Christmas and a very Happy New Year.
