Last Minute Christmas Gifts Ideas

Are you going to a family Christmas and forgot to get all the gifts? Have no fear, because here are some possible gifts that will get used!


Many people have a lot going on around the holidays, and it can be very easy to forget about one person. You might need to just add a little something for the stocking, but no matter the reason, there are some easy options for you. This can also come in handy if you are struggling on what to get a certain someone, because let's be honest, all the instagram stalking can get tiresome.

1. Money

You can never go wrong with the old-fashioned way of gift giving. It may be a less original gift to give, but I have never complained if I got money during the holidays.

2. Something Useful

Try and think of items or things that the said person could find helpful. Maybe they need a newer edition crockpot, or they might need a new flat iron, because there's doesn't work good anymore. It may seem mundane to you, but that minor attention to detail can mean a whole lot to someone you care about.

3. Gift Card

Whether your friend is obsessed with Amazon (like me), Books-a-Million, or Sephora, a gift card is the perfect gift to feed into their addiction. Without having to worry over what exactly to buy, you can just let them do it theirselves.

4. Subscriptions

Once again, you can reduce your stress by making their life a little easier. Pay for their Disney plus, a book of the month, or Amazon Prime membership. No matter if they prefer shopping, reading, or entertainment, there is a subscription perfect for just about anyone.

5. A cozy blanket

I love nothing better than a soft and warm blanket. You can create a personalized one, if you want to add a sentimental flair. A blanket might be a smidge simple, but it is the small things in life that mean the most.

6. A coffee mug

You can find the best mug for you friend, whether they love animals, the show FRIENDS, or cups with inspirational sayings. It is a useful item, and can be aesthetically pleasing.

7. Mini waffle iron

It is a great gift for that friend that loves a good midnight snack, or if y'all live in a dorm and need it to be a compact size. Always remember that good food is the way to the heart.

8. Oil diffuser

One of my best friends is absolutely obsessed with hers, and every time I enter her room it is filled with different auras and vibes. The oils truly change the atmosphere of the space, and can create a warming place for you to come home to.

9. An adult coloring book

They have quickly became more mainstream, and they come in many different forms. Everything from t.v. show themes to the adult forms of Disney characters. You can tailor the book to the vibes of you friend, and this provides a mechanism for relaxation and creativity.

10. Gift sets from Ulta

Who doesn't love makeup or beauty care? They come in all shapes, sizes, and uses, which is perfect for just about everyone. It gives your friend just a little bit of options for a reasonable price.

At the end of the day, the fact of gift giving is a personal and caring experience. Anytime some gives a gift, it makes those involved feel loved and enlightened at the fact they were thought about. No matter what you decide to get them, really dig deep into your heart routed in to the joy of giving.

I was never really big on cocktails. Tequila soda is always a go-to drink for me because of its simplicity and, to be honest, lack of extra calories from mixers chock-full of sugar, chemicals, and other unknown ingredients. I like tequila, and like to be able to really savor it.

This all changed when, a couple of years ago, a friend of mine made me a margarita from scratch — no funky mixers involved — and it tasted incredible. It was light, refreshing, and complemented the tequila without overpowering it.

I was blessed with thick, full hair up until my late teens. At the time, I cursed my hairiness — this was before full eyebrows became trendy or cool, and were instead a point of bullying many of my fellow full-browed teens can relate to.

Later in my 20s, hormonal stability was something I was thankful for, though a major side effect ended up being hair loss — on my head, lashes, and brows. I now find my filling in my brows on an almost daily basis. As much as I enjoy toying with and testing out different brow-filling products, it'll never be quite the same as being able to have "I woke up like this" full, Gigi Hadid-esque brows.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.
