If you read my Christmas gift guide for college students then you know that I’m the queen of procrastination, especially during the holiday season. I haven’t bought any gifts and at this point I probably won’t until Saturday or Sunday, but I do have a pretty good idea of what I’m going to get everybody. If you’ve waited to the last minute to get gifts then I’m here to help! Keep reading to find some last minute gift ideas that you can give to your family and friends.

Who doesn’t love cookies? Here are some amazing holiday cookies that you could make and wrap up nicely.

Soft and Chewy Snickerdoodles

Peanut Butter Blossoms

Gingerbread Cookies

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

If you don’t want to make the cookies yourself, you could get mason jars and fill them up with all of the dry ingredients like this.

Another great last minute holiday gift is hot chocolate! You can find super cute travel mugs like the ones below, or use mason jars. You can add hot chocolate packets, marshmallows, and even candy canes for the peppermint lovers! If you want a little bit more details, Liz Fourez at Love Grows Wild has an amazing recipe that you can print out.

Gift Cards

Gift cards are perfect for last minute gift ideas because you can get all of them at one time at places like Walmart or Walgreens. I recommend getting gift cards to people’s favorite restaurants or stores, as well as gas gift cards. You can also go to their favorite spa or nail salon and get them gift cards to there as well.

Subscription Services

Subscription services like Scentbird , Winc Wine, and Play! by Sephora are great last minute gift ideas because you don’t have to leave your home to purchase them! You can simply go online and put in the receivers address and it will be like the gift that keeps on giving.

Fuzzy Socks/Slippers

Everyone is trying to stay warm during the cold winter nights and fuzzy socks and slippers are perfect for that. They’re also super inexpensive and are great ideas for stock stuffers.


If all else fails, you can just buy a card and throw some cash in there. This allows the recipient to spend the money how they would like and you don’t have to stress about buying a present. Another alternative is offering to pay for a few months of their subscriptions like Apple Music, Hulu, or Netflix.
