Last Minute Holiday Gift Ideas

Need some last minute holiday gift ideas?

You know the drill. Your shopping is done for the holidays. You’ve got wrapping well in hand. Your list is nearly crossed off. You’re sitting down for a well-deserved cup of coffee flavored with self-congratulations on your organizational skills.

And then you remember … Uncle Fred.

You’d give your beloved uncle the box of chocolates you’ve got on reserve for that last-minute gift … but he was diagnosed with diabetes a few months ago.

He never wears ties, so those aren’t an option.

He has a house full of STUFF and really doesn’t need anything.

But he’s coming over for your annual Christmas Eve family party for the first time since Aunt Margie passed away, and you can’t leave him out of the gift exchange. There’s got to be something meaningful and unique you can give him.

What you need are some last minute holiday gift ideas!
