Last Minute Gift Ideas

Last Minute Gift Ideas

Running out of time and low on gift ideas? We’ve got you covered. Here are five last minute gift ideas you know they’ll love.

A Board Game

Forget about those old fashioned classics, board games are cool again. Giving a board game as a present doubles down on a physical gift as well as the gift of your time; they encourage face-to-face interaction and what’s better than spending a couple of hours on Christmas day fighting over the rules? Try a quick and snappy push your luck game that’s quick to learn and easy to play like Deep Sea Adventure. If you fancy getting competitive try Ticket To Ride or Machi Koro.

Their Favourite Snack

The gift of food is always gratefully received and even better when it’s their favourite snack. Maybe it’s sweet, maybe it’s savoury; treat your loved one to whatever their heart desires the most - in food form. Chocolates are the classic (if a little boring) gift so perhaps opt for something a little more fun. A cookbook gifted alongside ingredients for a recipe you know they’ll love or a hamper with a handpicked selection of their favourite treats.

A New Book To Read

Maybe the latest best seller, an old classic, or a spontaneous purchase, the gift of a new book to receive is likely to be received well. Gifting your favourite book with a handwritten note inside makes a sentimental present and if you’re feeling generous, an eReader pre-loaded with a library of free ebooks would be a book lovers dream.

Tea For Two

Or coffee, whichever they prefer. Boiling water, steeping tea or fresh coffee grinds, and slowly drinking a freshly brewed up has a wonderfully soothing effect especially when shared between friends. Gift the ritual of self-care and encourage you loved one to slow down and relax. Get them everything they need to brew the perfect cup like this Tea Gift Set, a Tea For Two Bundle to share, or a selection of new flavours to try.

A Gift Card

When all else fails, a gift card makes the perfect gift. Don’t know what to buy? Worried you’ll make the wrong decision? Not sure about size or fit? Don’t fret it, buy the gift that’s always perfect; buy a gift card. It’s the gift you know will be perfect.
