Last Minute Gift Ideas For Under $50

Although some may argue it’s not a good idea, last minute Christmas shopping can result in well priced gifts that will still please. The hustle and bustle of the malls and shopping centers is unlike no other time of year, and for some, it’s how they get into the Christmas spirit. If you enjoy the adrenaline surge from finding the perfect gift while on a time crunch, or simply just haven’t had the time to go any sooner, here are some fabulous last minute gift ideas which are under $50 that will be sure to be as delightful as if you purchased them well in advance:


A kitchen scale is a practical gift for the busy chef at home who might be concerned with portion control, or measurements for recipes. Paired with a basket of fresh berries (perfect for your last minute bundle) and complemented by a matching tea towel, this thoughtful gift will surely be met with smiles. To present it simply tie it all together with ribbon or twine, and consider using clear plastic wrap to finish the look. This can make the most adorable and unexpected hostess gift.

Herbs and Garden tools

Another great last minute gift would be some garden herbs and accessories. Rosemary and thyme can be found easily at your local grocer this time of year, or perhaps some leafy parsley or basil. The key is pairing it with a nice garden tool such as a small garden fork, and a nice pair of garden gloves that will have her looking forward to tending to the garden. This makes a thoughtful gift for those with green thumbs.

Corona Cooler

Rather than the typical bottle of wine which screams last minute, consider purchasing a small cooler and neatly filling it with fresh lemons and bottles of a favorite beer like Corona. This gift puts a thoughtful twist on quintessential alcohol gift giving for the holidays. This is a great gift for hip and casual holiday parties or for the beer lovers in your heart.
