Last Minute Gift Guide

I can't believe Christmas is just over a week away??? I swear every year the holiday season goes by faster and faster and I don't like it. I wish we had two solid months between Thanksgiving and Christmas. I feel like that would be enough time. BUT ANYWAY. With baby due any moment, I tried really hard to get all my Christmas shopping done well before the 25th and I've actually done pretty well! I just have two more gifts to buy (but I know what they'll be) and one final gift to figure out. I'm overall feeling pretty good about this.

Generally though, it takes me a looooong time to decide what I'll get for people. It can be so hard to come up with unique ideas for friends and family! I mean you want something that doesn't break the bank, but is good quality, and will be enjoyed by the recipient. All three of these qualities can be surprisingly hard to find in one item. So if you're in need of some last-minute gift ideas for someone (or yourself...), check these out! I own all of these items and often buy them for others as gifts because they are THAT GOOD. I promise you won't be disappointed by them. Just click any one of the images below to shop the item or click the links in the text descriptions below. Be sure to place your orders this weekend to ensure Christmas delivery!



1. Volcano Candle: Hands down the best smelling candle in the world. Want your house to smell like Anthropologie? Get this candle.

2. Plaid Scarf: I love the colors in this scarf! They are so versatile and perfect for dressing up any chilly weather outfit.

3. Ugg Slippers: Ok so I know these are technically slippers, but they have a nice rubber sole so I totally wear them out and about in the world. They are ridiculously comfy and hold up quite well. I've had the same pair for about four years and they still look great!

4. Anthropologie Apron: Because who doesn't want to look cute while they cook?

5. Essie Nail Polish: My Essie nail polish collection is growing every month and I'm not mad about it. I love their color selection and overall quality!

6. J. Crew Coat: If you need a splurge item, this is a great option. This coat is extremely well-made. It's warm, but still looks nice enough to wear for fancy events. There's a hilarious story about how I ended up with this coat last year for Christmas that I'll be sharing on the blog soon :)

7. Mac Lip Liner/Lipstick: This is another growing collection of mine. Great prices for both of these (under $20!) and you can mix and match the liners and lipsticks to your heart's content. Sometimes I even use the liner as an all-over color too! There are just so many options.

8. Leopard Purse: Leopard is a neutral. Therefore, you must have a leopard handbag in your wardrobe. I use mine more than you could possibly imagine. It seriously goes with most everything!

9. Hand Lotion: Just started using this lotion today and I'm super impressed. Smells great, non-greasy, and keeps my hands from cracking in this dry weather!

10. Daisy Perfume: I've been wearing this perfume since junior high and it is still my absolute favorite!

11. Pom Pom Beanie: Super affordable and the pom pom is just too cute for words.

12. Hunter Boots: Another great splurge item! These are great for people who do a lot of walking during the winter (*cough cough* students) or really just anyone who wants boots that are easy to slip on and off. I wear mine during rainy and snowy days and my feet have never been disappointed.

13. Necklace: I own way too many colors of this necklace, but I love them so much! They aren't heavy at all so they never annoy me the way some statement necklaces do and they easily add a touch of fancy and/or color to any outfit.

14. Adult Coloring Book: The perfect way to relax and unwind. I have a few of these and really enjoy coloring them when I have some down time (which I admit is not very often).

15. Clean On Me Body Wash: SMELLS SO GOOD AND LEAVES YOUR SKIN SOFT AS A BABY'S BOTTOM. I love this stuff.

16. Boot Cuffs: I have several pairs of these and I can't believe I went so long without any! They can be worn easily with leather or suede boots as shown above or with rain boots. They instantly elevate any outfit and are just so gosh dang adorable.

17. Wood Watch: You won't believe how lightweight this watch is. I love mine so much and get more compliments on it than anything else I wear.

18: Sugar Chapstick: Probably the best chapstick in the world. It's pricey, but definitely worth it.

And also as a side note for all my LDS lady friends, if you're in need of a new temple dress then I HIGHLY recommend Q.NOOR! Their dresses are so beautiful and very functional as well. Use code ANNIE at checkout to get two free pairs of nylons with your order! Code expires December 22nd.

Happy shopping!!

Watching: Jimmy Fallon with hubs.
Chomping On: Ice.
Wishing: I had remembered to wash my hair before bed. Now I'll have to do it in the morning. Sigh.
Days Until Christmas/Baby: 8!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
