Last Minute Christmas Gifts for that Special Someone

With Christmas in less than 10 days, you may be constantly wracking your brain while you try to figure out what you’ll get for that person who seems to have everything. If you’re (rightfully) scared about braving the holiday crowds at the mall, here are some great ideas for last minute Christmas Gifts:



Wine is a winner for a number of reasons. It’s something that can be enjoyed immediately if you bring it to a holiday catch-up or party, and it’s also something that your friend or family member can put away and enjoy for the new year. One of the things I love about buying wine is that there are so many different types and a wide range of quality at different price points. For a great last minute gift which will be welcomed by everyone, check out the specials on wine from Advintage.

An experience

Has your special someone told you they would like to conquer their fear of heights? Or maybe they’ve always wanted to go swimming with sharks or become a certified SCUBA diver. We all have a list of things we’ve wanted to try, so if you know that your favourite person is the adventurous type, arranging for them to tick something off of their bucket list could be the way to go. Here are some ideas:

  • Bungy Jumping
  • Skydiving
  • Whitewater Rafting
  • Mountain Biking
  • Surfing
  • Scuba diving

A Voucher

I know I know, many people assume that buying someone a voucher is the equivalent of saying “I don’t know you that well”, “I forgot to buy you a gift” or “I was in a rush”, but it doesn’t have to be. Buying someone a voucher for a store they love can actually be a more personal option since it means they’ll be able to choose their own gift and won’t be stuck with something they don’t want.

For someone who is planning to move house (or has already moved) a voucher to a high-end homeware store could be exactly what they need. This is also a great option if you have teenage kids, cousins, or nephews and nieces since you’ll know you’re getting them something they’ll use.

A Trip

If you have a special someone who has a bad case of wanderlust, getting them a trip for Christmas could make their year. Buying travel last minute for Christmas may hurt your wallet, but you can also get them flights for mid-year, their holidays or their birthday. Another option is to get vouchers from a travel agency so they can buy flights or accommodation whenever they can get some time off of work.

For an amazing surprise, why not book a holiday that you can go on as well. Tell them you’re both going away for a week in the middle of winter to a surprise destination and watch them get ridiculously excited. Be prepared to be their favourite person throughout the holiday season.
