Are you still looking for something special for someone special? Here are some very last minute holiday gift ideas
Print a photo printed on a wood panel at Walgreens or a print at CVS and stick it in a frame, or make an album. Both have same day pick up, and coupons make each imminently affordable.
Purchase Adele’s new album, 25, on iTunes.
A six-month Netflix subscription for $39.95 will give your special someone access to fabulous TV shows like Master of None, Narcos, Orange is the New Black, as well as current and classic movies.
Cooking classes you can do together. I bought a two-day basics class for me and Mr. Trueheart at our local cooking school, Ramekins, and we had a blast. There are probably good offerings in your area, just do a quick search.
Gift cards: Amazon (where you can everything in the world), Sephora (a mega make-up store), Starbucks (’nuff said), iTunes (movies, TV, music, podcasts), Etsy (homemade everything).
This Wisconsin girl loves a delicious Kringle. My Mom sent one to each of her brothers which will be delivered on Christmas Eve, and I asked my brother for one this year.
A hand-written love letter. It’s a dying art form, which is an all-out tragedy. Beautiful letters are forever keepsakes. Use beautiful paper, use your best handwriting, and make sure to give yourself time to think. Write from your heart.
A list of what you treasure about your special someone. A few years ago, one of my dear friends gave me a little heart-shaped wooden box that contained little strips of paper that she had typed out what she liked best about me. Little things. Little things that makes us each so precious and unique. I gave one of these lists to my sister a few years ago, and my niece gave me one for my 56th birthday.
Gift certificates for your special services. A massage. A clean house. Babysitting hours. Running an errand. Wash the car. Walk the dog. You get the idea.
How about scheduling a $25 photo shoot at Blink? This photo studio schedules ten-minute sessions for only $25. Your proofs will upload to your account immediately, and you can order prints for $10 each. Right now, they are only located in Corte Madera, in Marin County, California but they are opening new stores soon. I brought my niece and her best friend the other day and they loved it, and gave me photos for use as gifts.
Now… back to wrapping.
