50 Last-Minute Gift Ideas Under $50

This is the first year in literally ever that I’m DONE Christmas shopping already – truth be told, I’ve been done since Cyber Monday. WOO. I also keep telling myself I’m done so that I resist all sales + stores – ha! πŸ˜‰ This *should* be my last Gift Guide of the year, because it’s solely focused on those last-minute gift ideas! Specifically, 50 last-minute gift ideas all under $50. It’s not all just Amazon Prime, either (although much is from Amazon, of course – bless you Prime shipping). Many are favorite gift ideas I’ve recommended before, so you might see some familiar suggestions, but others just fall in shipping qualifiers to be here before Christmas Eve.

You can click all of the last-minute gift ideas in the collage below to shop, or use the links with descriptions down below to finish up your holiday shopping. BONUS: They’ll all arrive by Christmas with free shipping!

  7. “Brain Dump” notepad Y’all know I lovelovelove me a good BRAIN DUMP – so if you do, too, and want some on-brand paper to make it happen, this is for you!
  8. Scratch off watercolor USA map – HOW COOL IS THIS?!?! Any travel bug would lovelovelove this affordable gift – I want one of these, too!
  9. Corkcicle Air 4-in-1 chiller – This is SO cool for any wine-o…it does four things: chills, aerates, pours, AND stops your wine.

  11. Burt’s Bees Classics gift set – 6 gifts in any easy tin!
  12. Godiva truffles – 24 truffles is always a yes.
  13. 10pc bar tool set – For the buddening mixologist or bartender in the making – how neat is this set?! I might pick it up for my brother!

  23. Smart coffee warmer – My desk coffee warmer is a hit for all – also gender neutral option for him or her!

  32. Clear lipstick covers – These are the *best* stocking stuffer for the beauty lover who’s already got every new makeup launch on her vanity. MAC lipsticks don’t have identifiable colors on them, so this solves that problem!
