Hey, friends! Happy Saturday! I know I don’t normally post on the weekends, but I’m kind of feeling bad about my gift guide game this year, haha. The 12 Days of Giving kind of just took over, and while I’m so glad you all loved it, I want to be sure to help you with your shopping this season, too. So yesterday I hit the mall to check out the sales and see some things in real life.
While I love online shopping, I try my best to touch and feel things in person for you all when I can. My goal in creating content like this is to save you time, so the last thing I want is to recommend something you end up having to take back. That said, I can say with confidence that all of the last minute Christmas gifts for him and her listed below are GREAT. Dane and I have hand-picked them for you, and we even own quite a few. So scroll around and let me know if you have questions. I truly hope this helps you wrap up your holiday shopping!
[Oh, and FYI! If you’re looking for more affordable gifts for friends, I covered that right here. And there are a few other practical gift ideas for men right here.]
Last Minute Christmas Gifts for Him
I think these are all solid, awesome buys, but especially that watch!! I actually picked it out, then Dane told me he’s been eyeing it up. We both love it because it’s equally versatile and affordable [under $150].
I don’t think I can choose a favorite out of these, but what I will say is that Dane wears his puffer vests non stop from fall through winter. So we included two options he loved!
Men’s Sweaters & Tops
Note that I’m just super used to shopping in Dane’s color scheme, which is why these are all pretty… blue, haha. But some of them do come in other colors, FYI.
Men’s Stocking Stuffers
Alright, so Pottery Barn wont let me show you all these separately. But what I wanted to point out is the luggage tags, passport books, and travel cases. They’re all able to be purchased as is, or you can personalize them. But they totally make great stocking stuffers! Especially for a guy that does a lot of traveling.
Men’s Gift Sets + Misc.
I think gift sets are perfect for any guy, but I added a couple of miscellaneous items to this group because Dane insisted that I mention two things: Champion brand activewear from Target and Beats headphones (these ones are on sale right now for under $100). He said those are some of his favorite gifts. Oh, and he also wants to to know that anything on this page at Abercrombie is also acceptable, haha!! He’s taking helping me very seriously right now. 😉
Last Minute Christmas Gifts for Her
Women’s Jewelry & Accessories
You can’t go wrong with dainty jewelry, or a trendy and neutral bag (the black one linked below also comes in nude, FYI.)! I have to point out the drawstring bracelets below, though, because I have most of these! I absolutely swear by them, and my favorite is under $12 right now! No joke, it’s at the non factory store for like $50 right now. So snag it while you can!
I’m a sucker for a good coat, and I’m obsessed with all of these! I actually own the black puffer (under $50) and wear it more than I ever thought I would! Same goes for that burgundy teddy coat which is also around that same price!
Women’s Cold Weather Accessories
The pom beanie’s that I’ve purchased this year are all out of stock, but these hat and scarf combos are tempting me so bad, haha. I love the colors and the styles, especially of that gray and cognac set. Dane will kill me if I bring another hat and scarf set home, so I’ll live vicariously through all who end up buying them. 😉
Personally, I think the best sweaters are at Old Navy, American Eagle and Gap right now. Here are some that I own and/or have recently tried on and LOVE.
Women’s Stocking Stuffers
When it comes to stocking stuffers, I think Francesca’s has the best options. I’m a quality over quantity type girl, so I’d rather have a couple of these then a bunch of little things. Dane… if you’re reading this, I like that jade roller and jump rope. 😉 LOL – But seriously, all of these options are super practical and fun!
Women’s Gift Sets + Misc.
Okay, I think this is my favorite section for the ladies because it’s where you can get the most bang for your buck! A whole set of false lashes for $30, and eyeshadow palette for $5, I mean come on!! These would make great gifts or stocking stuffers. All depends on how big your stocking is, lol.
