As we all step out of our virtual work-from-home stations and come back to physical reality, our calendars have become booked with in-real-life festivities. So, you may put your holiday shopping tasks on the back burner until it’s time to grab some of the best last-minute gifts — we get it, we’ve all been there.
Consider this the procrastinator’s gift guide. Online retailers like Amazon and Sephora are filled with last-minute stocking stuffers, and unique gift ideas for everyone on your list: best friends, moms, dads, and teenagers included. Plus, they’ll arrive at your door before your shopping deadline and definitely won’t come across as hasty, last-minute picks.
And, as you may have noticed, shipping delays have been brutal this season. So you should definitely put in your orders as soon as possible in order to ensure your holiday gifts arrive on time. In case you’re wondering just how soon you should start considering your virtual holiday shopping, December 15 is the last day to ship via FedEx Ground for a Christmas arrival date and December 9 is the cutoff date for FedEx Ground Economy.
If you find yourself totally stuck, don’t fret, because we rounded up 31 beauty and lifestyle last-minute gift ideas — plus a few charitable options. These presents will keep your loved ones’ skin glowing, hair shiny and volumized, hands soft and moisturized, and makeup looking like a vision. Browse our picks from editor-favorite brands like Dyson, Mario Badescu, and L’Occitane to find the perfect match for everyone that’s still left on your shopping list.
