Last Minute Gift Ideas That Are Totally Awesome

It’s just a few more days before Christmas and I’ve got most of my shopping done, my cards are sent (we went digital this year), but I do have a few odds and ends to pick up still. Even though its kind of the last minute, that’s no reason to run to the nearest drugstore and get a Whitman’s sampler. I’ve come across some awesome ideas you should totally consider if you have anyone left on your list.

I was totally gobsmacked when I came across Blind Surprise. The concept is kind of genius, you tell them a few things about your recipient, set a dollar amount and they will surprise and delight them for you. Better yet, you can decide to set a frequency–make it a 1x gift, or buy a 3 or 6 month subscription.

Date Night!
For a couple that plays together, give them the gift of countless experiences by giving a gift subscription to How About We–a service that gives couples access to date ideas and services in their area.

Coffee Fix!
I was contacted by the nice people at Moustache Coffee and as soon as I heard their brand name–my daughter is a mustache fanatic and my husband is a coffee addict, need I say more–I was pretty much sold. Even better, you don’t need a mailing address for your recipient (how awesome is that?!?, hello last minute gifts) and you can pick denominations from 1-24 months.

No Ordinary Gift Card!
Unsure of what to get, or where to get it, iCardGiftCard may be your perfect solution! iCardGiftCard lets you buy a gift card denomination for your recipient which can be delivered via email or printed. When they receive their gift they can then pick which merchant from this list that they want the denomination transferred to a real gift card.
