The week before Christmas is upon us, in fact, we’re left with only 5 days. The lights are up, the tree is trimmed, and gifts are getting wrapped — but wait, you forgot that one person on your list!
Maybe you didn’t forget at all, maybe you just don’t know what to get that last person on your list. Well, we’ve rounded some last minute gift ideas that are all budget friendly enough to let that special someone know you thought of them this season, but will make sure you’re still good to your wallet.
Get messy in the kitchen for under $10:
Sometimes money gets really tight this time of year, so a really inexpensive gift idea is to bake some holiday treats for those on your list. Sticking to simple and classic recipes that everybody loves is a great way to bake in larger quantities that can be divided up between your coworkers, neighbors, and friends. Wrap them up in inexpensive cello bags and tie a pretty ribbon (both can be found at the dollar store) and you instantly add a personal touch your recipients are going to appreciate. For an easy recipe, visit Cookies that are almost too pretty to eat.
Pamper them for under $50:
Splish Splash Black Raspberry Vanilla Gift Set from Bath & Body Works, $30. Available at bathanbodyworks.com
The one thing we all love is a little TLC and some bath products like soaps, bubble baths, and lotions to keep our skin glowing even during the dry winter months is a gift we can all use a little bit of. Try a scent that may be your favorite, or if you know their favorite products or scents, that is a safe bet that you’re going to hit the mark with something they’ll love. Most stores offer gift receipts, so even if you do miss the mark, they can exchange it for one they will want to use.

Surprise even the “hostess with the mostess” for under $100:
Chancellor Cheese Board by Pottery Barn, $90.00. Available at potterbarn.com
We all know her– maybe she’s your sister, mother-in-law, or best friend. She’s the kitchen magician, the one with the most intricate attention to every little detail, the one you don’t dare compete with at her own game. She’s not impossible to please, you just have to think like she does. Find the gift that she can use, that she might never buy for herself, or the one that just might make her laugh. Treat her to something she’ll keep for years like a vase, a cheese board, or crystal wine glasses. Visit gorgeous gift ideas for under $100 for more giving ideas this holiday.
