Choosing the perfect gift for loved ones, co-workers, and even those trickier recipients on our lists a joy. But in a season packed with parties, travel, and baking marathons, presents can be a forgotten priority. In an effort to save you from the dreaded mall dash (looking at you dad), we put together this curated guide of thoughtful, last minute gift ideas that are sure to be safely tucked beneath the tree come Christmas Eve.
“Last-minute” often connotes rushed, resulting in gifts that seem more like an obligation than a kind, loving gesture. But as someone whose love language includes giving cherished gifts, it was my pleasure and joy to shake the internet upside down and find the best last minute gift ideas for your down-to-the-wire shopping needs.

23 Last-Minute Gift Ideas for the Procrastinator in All of Us
So let’s get to it—these are the surefire gifts that everyone on your list will love.
3 Months to Book of the Month Club
I gifted this subscription to my sister last year and she confirmed: it was my best present yet. When her book was delivered every month, like clockwork she’d call me and reiterate how much she loved the gift. As a little bonus for me, she’d proceed to send me the book after the finished it—this is the gift that truly keeps on giving.
Casa Zuma Handcrafted Wood Salad Bowl
This beautiful wood salad bowl is on our dinner table almost every night, filled with whatever leaves and veggies are in season topped with a drizzle of quality olive oil. Handmade in Vermont, these are heirloom-quality bowls that are made for sharing good food with great friends. The 12″ is sized for 2 – 4 people, while the 17″ is made for larger groups.
Brightland The Mini Essentials
The entire Camille Styles team is obsessed with Brightland. From beautifully fruity olive oils to double fermented vinegars (and the best honey you’ve ever drizzled on a yogurt bowl), Brightland does it all to perfection. With this set, you’ll receive mini versions of some of their best-selling products: two olive oils, a Balsamic vinegar, and a Champagne vinegar that I’ve made a mainstay in all of my vinaigrettes.
Our Place Wave Trivet
For months, my partner and I got used to plopping an oven mitt down on the dining room table every time we hosted a family-style dinner party. We’ve since stepped things up and gifted ourselves this sculptural trivet. This stoneware stunner is hand-poured, hand-finished, and hand-stamped by artisans. It’s a true show-stopper.
Goldbelly 3-Month Subscription
For the foodie with an insatiable appetite for the country’s best handcrafted foods. Each monthly box is curated by their team with edible sweet or savory treasures that will serve at least four people. Maybe include a stipulation in your card—you get an automatic invite.

If you’ve ever wanted to get a behind-the-scenes peek into the fascinating, creative world of a prop styler, this is your ticket in. Stylist and creative director Robin Zachary shares everything to know about taking your passion from hobby to a fulfilling career.

If you haven’t heard, dance cardio is the new everyone’s-doing-it workout (step aside, pilates). Workouts range from 5-50 minutes and the app includes 400+ workouts plus LIVE classes every week. It’s fun, it’s low-impact, and it’s totally effective—if your giftee wants to get ahead of their resolutions, The Sculpt Society is the way to do it.
