In a perfect world, we would have plenty of time to buy thoughtful gifts for all our loved ones. But the world’s not perfect and sometimes things sneak up on us.
If you’re looking for some last-minute gift ideas, then this is for you! We’ll show you 5 classic and stylish gift ideas that are perfect if you’re in a bind for a quick, thoughtful, last-minute gift your friends and family will love!
A Gift for the Fashionista
If your loved one loves fashion, then you can’t go wrong with a gift card to their favorite store. You could also find out what brands they like and buy them some clothes as a gift (make sure to size up!). Buying clothes as a last-minute gift is even better if you know what kind of style they like. For example, if you know that they like more preppy styles, then buy them a shirt from Ralph Lauren or J. Crew.
A Gift for the Home Cook
For the home cook in your life, why not give them a new cookbook! Cookbooks are always the perfect gift because they’re practical and people love receiving them.
This year, why not give them one of these three classic and stylish cookbooks that will be sure to please anyone:
1) “Mastering the Art of French Cooking” by Julia Child. One of the most classic and timeless cookbooks, this book is worth gifting to any home chef. If you really want to go for it, this book is accompanied by three volumes so you can give all 3 as a set!
2) “Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking” by Marcella Hazan. The Italian queen herself has put together 500 recipes that are refreshingly simple but packed with flavor. There are also detailed instructions for each recipe, making it the perfect gift for the cooking novice in your life.

A Gift for the Home
A plant is a classic and stylish gift. Everyone needs plants in their home, and they make the perfect gift for any occasion. If your loved one isn’t the greatest plant parent, consider a flower delivery instead – beautify their home with stunning, colorful flowers that don’t require a lot of care. You could send a one-time flower delivery or make it a weekly or monthly delivery.
A Gift for the Tech Lover
One of the best last-minute gifts to give a tech lover is a phone case. There are many different styles and colors to choose from. Other options include earbuds, a Cameo video from their favorite star, or a Masterclass subscription. Your friend will love any of these thoughtful gifts!

Toy carousels are a great way to keep kids entertained. They’re a fun and silly gift that they’ll be happy to play with over and over again.
