Gift Guide: Last Minute Gift Ideas

 photo Last Minute Gift Guide Ideas_zpsbkjnnhih.jpg

Whether you've procrastinated your way to December 22nd, forgot something on your list or unexpectedly have to purchase a gift, you're still in luck! There are still tons of great things you can get that everyone will love and in time for Christmas. There's also things you can have on hand and ready to go if you need an extra little something like lipstick, an eye shadow palette, fuzzy socks, gift cards; things like that.

I'm extremely guilty of being such a procrastinator especially when it comes to Christmas shopping! You would think for someone who shops as much as I do that I would have all my shopping done in a matter of days but on top of it all, I'm very picky too especially when gift buying. Even on Black Friday and Cyber Monday I didn't finish nearly enough gifts as I should have! Luckily for you, I put the pro in procrastination so I put together the best last minute gifts you could buy in the next few days:

P.S. make sure you check out my list of favorite sales and stores that are guaranteeing Christmas delivery - still this late in the game!

Fuzzy Gloves// Eyeshadow Trio// Nail Polish Set// Handbag Keychain// Cold Weather Beanie// Colorful Cashmere Scarf// Plaid Pajama Pants// YSL Roller Ball Perfume// Reversible Tote Bag// Lip Gloss Set// iPhone 6 Case

I always buy a ton of fuzzy socks each season to have to add to a gift because they're simple, fun and something that you can give to almost anyone. It's also handy to have things like nail polish trios and perfume sets. I still have a few things to get even after having gone shopping the past two days in a row - ugh! But this gift guide has really helped me out. Aerie also has great sales going on like these pajama pants and pretty scarves like this one that I just bought for $10! (even snagged one for myself!!)

Luckily for us procrastinators, there is a ton of stores who are offering expedited shipping in time for Christmas Eve, so that if you can't make it out to the store (or have been to every store and STILL need gifts like me...) you can finish all of your shopping. Our Hail Mary stores:

NORDSTROM // expedited shipping on a large selection of items; order by noon (EST) on Dec. 23rd
LOFT // order by 3 PM (EST) on Dec. 23rd
LORD AND TAYLOR // free next day shipping with a $99 order; order by 2 pm (EST) Dec. 23rd for 12/24 delivery
OLD NAVY // order by today for guaranteed 12/24 delivery
JCREW // only $10 for overnight shipping!

Did you finish your holiday shopping yet? I'm off to the outlets today to (hopefully) finish my shopping!
