Adding last-minute guests to your holiday gathering? With all the daily tasks we have to complete, it can sometimes be difficult to fit in last-minute shopping for holiday gifts. If you find yourself days away from a full house with no idea how to figure out what to get for whom, this article is for you. You still have time to shower your loved ones with presents that are thoughtful, personal and sure to be enjoyed.

 

Carafe and Glass Set

Anytime there’s a gathering, you need something beautiful to put drinks in. A Carafe and glass set is a great gift for the ultimate hostess. Some sets can be customized online or at your local engraving store for an added personal touch.

Serving Trays or Boards
Whether light hors d'oeuvres or a deliciously prepared meal, serving trays and boards are essential in a well-executed gathering.  Like the carafe and glass set, these items can also be personalized to add an extra special touch.

Sunglasses

Sunglasses are a stylish gift anyone can use! Find a pair that reflects your loved one’s personality and style. Be sure to choose a pair that properly frames their face shape. Two reasons this is always a great gift are year-round use and the sun protection sunglasses provide.

Bluetooth and Smart Speakers

Music is a universal language and this simple fact has caused a boom in the plethora of options for Bluetooth and wireless speakers. These devices do more than simply play music. In addition to being a speaker, smart speakers can be configured to turn off lights via voice control and give a weather report or news upon voice request.

A Themed Basket

Create themed basket with simple enjoyable items like candy, candles, snacks, socks, a blanket or a bath robe as a collection of your friend or loved one’s favorites. Include a framed photo or photo for an added personal touch. You can even include scented lotion or memorabilia, event tickets and more. Baskets allow you to stretch your imagination and creativity.

Small Kitchen Appliances

Small kitchen appliances make great gifts for friends and family members who enjoy cooking. Kitchen appliances are one of the most common items you can purchase resale. Small appliances like blenders or slow cookers can be a great buy if they are like new or in an unopened box.

Table Games

Looking for a gift that is ageless? Giving the gift of fun is great for anyone on your list. Games and puzzles can be found in abundance at a discounted price resale. These are the perfect items for rainy day entertainment or fun with family and friends. When looking for great games to gift, consider shopping for game accessories as well, like card holders, or playing mats.

Scarves

Scarves and scarf cardigans are simple ways to update a family member or friend’s style. This simple versatile gift can function as an extra layer or blanket if you are traveling.  The best thing about this gift is the sizing is often one size fits all or simplistic enough to make it easy to purchase the right sized garment.
