Time to be honest, I am so not done with my Christmas shopping and it is 6 days away. Every year I say I am going to get my act together and get it all done in October and yet, once again, here I am scrambling to get my gift list in order. This year seems to be especially hard because all the things I did order ahead of time won’t arrive till way after Christmas. So now I am trying to figure out some last minute gifts.
Between all the other things that I have to get done in the next few days, the last thing I have time for is running all over town trying to find gifts for loved ones. So I spent time on Amazon today trying to find gifts that could be at my house asap and was shocked at how many gifts you can get same-day. Here are some of the best things I found:
For the Dinosaur Loving Child
We got this for my son a couple years ago and he still plays with it to this day. It combines two of his favorite things – dinosaurs and cars! The best thing is that the tracks can be combined with any other of the flexible track sets. So this is set you can build on in the future.
Full disclosure, I bought this dinosaur toy immediately after seeing it. It’s one of my son’s favorites at speech therapy and I can’t wait to have a set at home!
For The Princess in Training
If you have a princess obsessed child in your house then you know what should be under the tree this year. Make them feel like the princess they are with their own castle that can be put up in their room:
And with this gift your little princess can take their castle with them anywhere they go:
For The Budding Artist
These scratch pads are another favorite in our house. They allow your child to do some colorful art without the mess. Perfect for car trips.
Also, did you know Spirograph was still a thing? Because I didn’t and now I want one for myself!
For Family Game Night
One of our family traditions is to play a game every year on Christmas Eve. It is great because every generation can get involved. “Do You Really Know Your Family?” is a great one for the entire family and might cause a little drama which is always fun:
If you have teens or young adults in the house, they will love this game from Rhett & Link of Good Mythical Morning on Youtube:
Get The Hottest Tech Overnight
If your family member is looking for a tablet, the Amazon Fire is a great option and way less expensive than the Apple iPads. My husband has loved his for years.
Bluetooth headphones are always a great option for gifts and the Beats will have the music over in your house super happy:
Makeup Starter Set
Is the teenager in your life ready to start their road to makeup influencer status? They can’t start without the proper tools. First you need a good lighted mirror:
Then a starter set of beauty brushes to start working on their technique:
