We are in the final countdown to Christmas, in just one week we’ll all be in full-blown celebration mode. That means it is crunch time as far as buying gifts, and if you are anything like me then you still have a few more (especially for the hard to shop people, I always procrastinate those!) people to buy for. We thought we’d do a final gift guide sharing the best last-minute gifts to wrap up your shopping. I included shipping dates so you can take advantage of free delivery too .



Today is the final day for standard shipping from Amazon. You can still get 2-day Prime Shipping until Saturday (according to the site, the delivery calendar is here) but I’d be careful with that as it seems more and more things are arriving later with them these days.  Be sure to read the shipping information carefully. Also, if for some reason you aren’t already a prime member it’s not a bad time to sign up for a trial, you can always cancel it after the holidays if you don’t use it year round.


Let’s start with Oprah’s Favorite Gift Ideas because they are always fun, right?  You can click HERE to see them all. She always finds the best stuff!  Some of her favorite things this year that caught my eye are the Barbeque Sauce Tub (because who doesn’t like trying new BBQ sauces?)

If you are a foodie (or you are buying a gift for a foodie), how lovely is the menu/diary from Jacques Pepin? It’s just $15! I love the idea of writing down memorable meals (or just to glance back and get dinner ideas), this could be the perfect gift for a frequent traveler or someone who loves dining out.


This is high-end but this charging station would look perfect on a nightstand and it is oh-so-practical. No more fighting over the plugs (which is pretty much a regular occurrence in our house), or waking up with a phone with little to no power. I am gifting two of these less expensive charging discs if you don’t have Oprah’s champagne budget, my hope is we can have one disc on the kitchen counter for my husband and me to share.

We’ve professed our love for a Yeti Tumbler countless times here on 11 Magnolia Lane. Both Christy and I are seriously attached to ours, because after you have one regular cups no longer cut it. A Tumbler would make a perfect gift (especially for a teacher), just pair with a gift card if you need to make it a little more exciting.


Today is also Nordstrom’s last day for free standard shipping– phew, you made it just in time! ? Here are some easy gift ideas you can order that will arrive just in time to be wrapped and put under the tree.

This is Christy’s go-to travel bag and I am seeing these Longchamp Le Pliage Totes everywhere because they are stylish and practical. Made of water-resistant nylon, this is a perfect gift for someone who travels or commutes. I’d also suggest this for a college-aged girl since it’s perfect to transport all the ‘things’ back and forth from school to home.

Another gift perfect for a traveler of any age are packing cubes. {Also available for less HERE}. These are a great way to fit more in your suitcase and keep everything organized. These cubes are getting a lot of buzz right now as a favorite gift idea as they are great for anyone who is on the road or in the air frequently.

If I had to pick one budget-friendly gift that you can’t go wrong with, I’d say it would be the Kennebunk Bliss Throw. It is just $29 shipped, and it is available in a ton of colors. This is so good it is my daughter’s Christmas list, we have one in our family room that everyone fights over so she wants her own! It is made of the softest material and is nice and warm, this would make a perfect gift.


Also, these Kate Spade stud earrings are less than $20, these are some of my favorites!


Walmart is still doing free two-day shipping over $35, and since nobody really wants to brave a real Walmart store right now this is a great way to knock out those last few gifts. Here are some easy ideas:

This Keurig Coffee Maker is just $49 (shipped)

This Oral B electric rechargeable toothbrush is just $40 (shipped).

A Kitchen Aid Mixer is just $189

This Instamax Instant Camera is on sale for $49 (this is on my daughter’s list!)


X Box Gaming Systems are still in stock and less than $200. I remember frantically trying to find one of these for my boys a few years ago with no luck. They have several versions with different games if this is on your child’s wish list.


Today is also the last day for free shipping at Pottery Barn (code Jolly). These fur-lined robes have been a big hit this year (and I am hoping for one under my tree!). Their gift ideas can be found here.

Tory Burch added new items to their sale including this pretty party-perfect bag. They are offering expedited shipping today too!

Another gift idea that I have already shared but I think are a great go-to gift for everyone are the J. Crew classic scarves. They are just $20, and ship free for rewards members. They come in tons of pretty patterns, I am partial to this pink and gray one.


If I see anything else that you should not miss, I’ll add it in. If you need even more ideas, all of our gift guides are below:
