Last Minute Gift Ideas
Hectic lifestyles can easily lead to gifting emergencies. Maybe a birthday or anniversary was forgotten; maybe an unexpected visitor stopped by with a gift; or maybe you just need that last-minute hostess gift for tonight’s dinner party.
Creating a gift closet is an excellent and economical way to deal with last-minute gift emergencies. By keeping a diverse selection of gifts, you will never scramble for a last-minute gift again. A stash including a wide variety of items, suitable for friends and relatives of all ages, will allow you to personalize gifts to fit individuals' interests and personalities.
Stock Your Gifting Closet with These Tips:
Off Season Gifts
Don’t be afraid to buy gifts out of season. When you see something that a friend or relative would like, buy it and save it for a future gifting occasion.
Homemade GiftsFood gifts, such as homemade preserves, fine candies and high-quality vinegars or sauces, make great gifts for almost everyone on your list.
Gift certificates to book stores, music shops and department stores, as well as candles, picture frames and journals are always welcome presents.
Don't forget the kids
Remember to include child-specific gifts, such as toys, art supplies or books, in your gift stash.
Don’t be afraid to recycle a gift – just be sure to attach a note to the item saying who gave it to you, so as to avoid the embarrassment of passing it back to the original giver.
Stock up on supplies
Include an assortment of gift bags, paper, tags, ribbon and other wrapping supplies with your stash.
