Last Minute Christmas Gift Guide 2018

We all have our inner procrastinator telling us we’ll have the time to do those important tasks later, and never is that part of us more dominant than at Christmas. Time easily runs away from you and, before you know it, it’s the weekend before Christmas and you haven’t bought any gifts yet.

Firstly, don’t panic. Breathe and make a list of everyone you have to buy presents for, then relax and read through this last-minute guide. Whether you have time to go out to the shops or want something you can quickly order online with next-day delivery, we have all of your last-minute gifts sorted.


Gift Subscriptions

While it may seem like it belongs alongside gift cards in the “cop out” category, a subscription can actually be a wonderful, meaningful gift. Pick a magazine that you know they love but would never think to subscribe to – magazine companies also tend to do great offers on subscriptions at this time of year. More taste-tailored options such as a Birchbox subscription or NowTv pass are great ways of showing someone you know their passions.


Last-Minute Tech Gifts

Tech products are great last-minute gifts because they still possess the “wow factor” of a well thought-out present but can easily be picked up in store or (even better) ordered on Amazon with Prime delivery. We’ve picked an Amazon Echo, Apple Airpods and a Fitbit, all of which are crowd pleasers bound to impress anyone who receives them.


Personal Last-Minute Gifts

Simply because you are buying last-minute gifts, doesn’t mean they can’t be personal. These presents are simple, inexpensive yet thoughtful and will probably be received better than a more expensive gift card from a generic shop. Our favourite personal last-minute gifts are a framed photo and hamper; the hamper doesn’t have to rival Fortnum and Mason, simply purchase some fancy ingredients and the recipe for their favourite food and arrange them with some tissue paper in a nice basket or mixing bowl.
