If you’re reading this it’s probably because you’ve been putting off your Christmas shopping until the 11th hour, I mean, I don’t blame you (I feel the exact same way this year!). The mall parking lots alone are enough to scare anyone who doesn’t like shopping away! LOL! We’ve all been there, whether it’s a last-minute addition to your shopping list or you’ve been procrastinating, I’m here to help!
I love sharing a Last Minute Gift Guide each holiday season as I know there may be a few of you who leave it to the last minute which means that sometimes you have to get a little more creative with your gifts when they’re down to the wire! So, today I’m rounding up 15 of my favourite last-minute gifts that anyone would love to receive this holiday season!
Digital & Physical Gifts
If you missed it, we have refreshed our Jilly Digital site with brand new winter-inspired prints, one of my personal faves is the Wild at Heart print in cognac and icy blue! Along with all of our digital prints, we also have a collection of presets to match anyone’s photo-editing style. The cherry on top? The files are all digital and delivered to your inbox seconds after you checkout, with no shipping delays! 😉
If you follow me on Instagram you know that my mom has officially opened her Etsy store for business and she has the three digital prints available for purchase, two of which she painted and one from the public domain from the 1800s that she purchased. If anyone on your list is an art enthusiast, look no further!
If you have a small business owner, entrepreneur, or aspiring influencer on your list, The Jilly Academy Courses would make for the ULTIMATE holiday gift. They are packed with all of my tried, tested and true methods for building the business of your dreams. In the courses, we go over everything from brand strategy, influencer marketing, content creation, photography, digital storytelling and so much more.
Do you have someone from Kelowna on your list or someone looking to visit? Look no further, mine and Justin’s condo in the heart of downtown Kelowna would make for the perfect vacation stay!
If you have someone who loves to cook on your list and they already have the Fraiche Food Full Hearts Cookbook, why not gift them, my cousin, Tori’s meal plan? One of my all-time favourite dishes from her meal plan is her enchiladas … they are out of this world!
Adventure & Experiences
1. Concert Tickets
With many concerts coming back in 2022, why not get them tickets to see one of their favourite artists? This will be an experience they’ll never forget. If they aren’t crazy about concerts, why not tickets to a sporting event or a theater production!
2. Golf Pass
For those of you that know Justin, know that he would be over the moon if I got him a golf pass. There’s no denying that the sport is expensive, so even a sleeve of golf balls would be a hit (pun intended 😉) for the golf enthusiast on your list.
Do you have someone who loves to hike? Why not find a few different trails they’ve never been on and make a hiking bucket list, bonus points if you join them on the fun!
4. Winter Activites
Tis’ the season for all things skiing, snowboarding, skating, snowshoeing, etc. Why not gift the winter-lover on your list with a trip to the slopes or the rink?
5. Cooking Class
For the chef on your list, an online or in-person cooking class would make for the perfect gift or why not a food subscription box from HelloFresh, Good Food, etc.
“Me” Time & Self Care
1. House Cleaning/ Organizing
If you read my full recap on my experience when Go Clean Co and Go Simplified Co visited our house, you know how passionate I am about a clean and organized home. For anyone on your list who loves (or doesn’t) cleaning/organizing, why not gift them with your time to help them tackle their project? If not, a professional cleaning/ organizing service would also make for a great gift!
2. Car Wash
In the Winter, it feels like a never-ending task trying to keep your car clean! Why not gift someone a car wash on you? Whether that means you take it in and detail it yourself or hire a professional to do it for you!
3. Mani and Pedi
I guarantee you that almost any parent on your list would LOVE to receive a mani and pedi! There’s nothing quite like heading out the door to get pampered while someone else watch the kiddos, and/or your pets for you!
4. Baby Sitting
Another great gift idea that would only cost you time is offering to babysit the kiddos in your life while the person on your list gets a little me time, even if that’s an hour to sit alone in their bedroom scrolling their phone undisturbed! 😂.
5. A Chore of Choice
Looking for a great gift for your significant other? Why not gift them with one chore of their choice? That could be anything from hanging up a picture frame, unloading the dishwasher, vacuuming, etc.
Well, there you have it! I hope these 15 things help those of you who are looking for the perfect last-minute gift for anyone on your list this holiday season! As always, if you are wanting to gift them a physical product, feel free to browse around our shop pages here! You can always print out a picture of the item and let them know it’s arriving shortly after the holidays!
