It’s that time of year again, the time when many of us buckle down to complete the rest of our Christmas shopping although we said last year, that we’d do better this year.
Don’t worry, you’re not alone, some of us also couldn’t fathom standing in Black Friday lines to finish crossing gifts off of our holiday shopping list, and if you’re like me, you probably didn’t even make one.
Nonetheless, here we are with less than 48 hours until Christmas and it’s time to finish up grabbing last-minute gifts for bae or any other special person that you still need to get a gift for. To help you out, we’ve come up with three great last-minute gifts ideas under $200.
Starting with Apple AirPods, which now has more talk time, a new wireless charging case (on some models) and voice-activated Siri access. Siri can automatically speak your incoming messages as they come in. There’s also an option to choose which contacts messages are heard from, and Siri won’t interrupt if a call is in place or if a song is being shared. The AirPods can sense when they are no longer in your ears and they pause when taken out. Most prices for the newest standard Airpods seem to range anywhere from about $139.99-$159.99.
Whether this gift will be used for a night out on the town with bae, or to make a statement walking into a business meeting, you can never go wrong with gifting a great smelling cologne or perfume. How do you know which ones smell good with so little time left on the clock? Well, we’ve put together a number of smell goods that have made several best smelling colognes and perfumes lists. As for cologne, take your pick from Yves Saint Laurent La Nuit De L’homme, Chanel Bleu de Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana’s The One, or Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gio. When it comes to perfumes, some signature scents that have made great buzz include Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum, Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau de Toilette, Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Eau de Toilette, Lancôme: La Vie Est Belle and the good ole classic Juicy Couture: Viva La Juicy Eau de Parfum. These selections have a number of reviews online that you can check out and most have been reviewed by a number of YouTubers. Most of these perfumes and colognes can be bought for under $100.
Lastly, if you just simply don’t have the time or energy to go hunting down gifts, we’ve rounded up some of the best last-minute gift cards you can buy, and some are even available online. Starting with Amazon, I’m pretty sure just about everyone we know can find a number of things they’d love to buy with an Amazon gift card. Airbnb, Sephora, and Target gift cards are also great choices as well, or you can give the gift of free transportation or food with an Uber Gift card that can also be used for Uber Eats. Gift card amounts start at $5 at Target.
These three last minutes gift ideas can be jumped on right away so no need to ponder any longer. And let’s be honest, you probably don’t have time to sit around considering how long you’ve already waited. Drop any other last-minute gift ideas you have below!
