Last Minute Holiday Gift Guide

December 21, 2020

No matter what, year after year, I always end up scrambling at the last minute to find Christmas presents, whether it’s too new friends, gifts I forgot or delayed posting, I know this year, I can rely on Amazon Prime’s 2-day shipping to ensure that my gifts arrive to loved ones on time.

Whether you’re going to have a gift sent to a far-away friend or just ordering a few last-minute surprises for a local gift exchange, you can find some of my favorite last-minute gift ideas below.

FOR THE COCKTAIL LOVER

Tequila Mockingbird

TEQUILA MOCKINGBIRD

This book is the perfect combination for a book lover and a cocktail lover. Tim Federle did a perfect mix of puns, books, and drinks. Some of the menu items include Tequila Mockingbird, The Pitcher of Dorian Grey Goose, Romeo and Julep, Are You There, God? It’s Me, Margarita, and Vermouth the Bell Tolls.

YETI 20OZ TUMBLER

YETI 20OZ TUMBLER

When I shared this on my Instagram stories last week, so many people wondered where to get them! This 20oz Yeti Tumbler comes in 18 different colors and I love my Ice Pink!

FOR THE FOODIE

24 PIECE FOOD STORAGE CONTAINER

24 PIECE FOOD STORAGE CONTAINER

Earlier this year, I bought a set of tupperware that I absolutely love from Amazon. This set is twice as big as the one that I got and will be the perfect gift for someone learning to cook, someone who food preps, or someone building their kitchen tools.

KEURIG

KEURIG

A single serve coffee maker is all of the rage. It prevents you from wasting an entire pot after your morning cup.

I love a good cup of coffee, hot or iced.

Keurig with Cold Coffee

Keurig (6 to 10 oz) 🙂

REUSABLE STRAWS

REUSABLE STRAWS

In Charleston, most businesses don’t use plastic straws anymore. Personally, I hate when I use a paper straw and the straw begins to get soggy, so I found these reusable straws to be the perfect solution. With little silicone tops, you don’t have to worry about biting the metal on the straw.

FOR HIM

JBL FLIP 4 WATERPROOF PORTABLE BLUETOOTH SPEAKER

JBL FLIP 4 WATERPROOF PORTABLE BLUETOOTH SPEAKER

Any and every beach day in Charleston, you’re bound to see at least half a dozen portable speakers.

Everyone needs one! The JBL speakers are popular, but the Flip 4 is waterproof – good for beach days, pool side or the occasional shower concert.

Shop here 🙂

WIRELESS CHARGING STATION FOR AIRPODS/WATCH/IPHONE

WIRELESS CHARGING STATION FOR AIRPODS/WATCH/IPHONE

The perfect gift for the Apple lover in your life, almost all of your devices will fit in one tool and that tool will fit perfectly on your desk or nightstand.

CREWNECK SWEATER

CREWNECK SWEATER

This simple, yet classic, the sweater could be a staple in your man’s closet. Amazon Essentials have really upped their game over the last couple of years and have a variety of perfect sweaters, tees, and flannels that could upgrade any closet.
