A Gift Guide For The Last-Minute Shopper

Happy Monday my people! Lord knows if you wait any longer to do your holiday shopping you'll have to face the wrath of a bitter-but-they-won't-admit-it parent, and a sibling that isn't afraid to tell you you suck.

But first.. let's take a second to acknowledge that Amazon Prime's free 2-day shipping was God's answer to every procrastinator's prayers.

7-10 business days?! I don't know how I ever had that kind of patience.

That's why every single thing I included in this gift guide is Prime-able, so you can still get it in time for the holidays without paying more for shipping than you did for the gift (because that's the worst). And being that I'm a broke twenty-something myself, there's something for every budget. From 0 to 549, real quick.

 

For the bookworm...


For the sound-obsessed...
 

 
 


For the gym rat or fitness newbie...


For the #HUSTLER...

 
 


For the die-hard smoothie drinker...

For the really pre-med pre-med...

 

For smaller gifts and stocking stuffers...

For me personally the most stressful thing about the holidays is having to ball on a budget. I'm always stuck somewhere between wanting to get the people I love really nice things, and needing to eat (lol). 

I'll leave you with this: no gift is too small for the dope people in your life. If you can't splurge on a VitaMix, then opt for a NutriBullet. If you can't afford a NutriBullet, then I'm sure they'd love new smoothie recipes. And if that's still out of reach for you (there's no shame here!), then try making your own recipe book with love ($0). 

Seriously. It's always better to go the "hand-made with love" route than to show up empty-handed because you were too embarrassed to make your gift and didn't have the funds to buy one. The people who truly appreciate you will love that you made the extra effort. And if your "friends" are upset that you couldn't afford bigger gifts, then maybe you should re-evaluate your friendships. #realtalk

Sending you all of my love and holiday cheer from the Big Apple... have a great week! xx
