There’s still time to order some great gifts (see this post and this Amazon Prime post) but if you are still in a bind I’ve made a list of my favorite online retailers with printable gift certificates as well as some creative ways to give them.
Barrington Gifts – Let her design her own St. Anne’s tote (above) in the fabric and monogram she really wants – how thoughtful! Printable certificate available. You could print a photo of a sample bag, too. (The totes start at $160).
Birchbox – People love this subscription service where you get 5 beauty, hair, and personal care samples a month. Get 20% off with code GIFT20. They can email an e-gift card to the recipient or you can print a gift card. Pair with some fun sheet masks from the drug store. Don’t forget they have men’s subscription boxes, too. Pair with some Jack Black products that ship free same-day on Amazon.
Neiman Marcus – A regular gift card is great but you can now pick out an actual gift and they will email a picture of it to the recipient saying it’s been gifted to them. They can choose their size and color before it ships. This is great for pre-order items like the popular Gucci belt.
(Another thought if you have a Gucci or Neimans near you: ask the store for a box and put the gift card in there!)
Stitch Fix – I would love to receive this! Print or email a gift card from this online personal stylist. The recipient will receive 5 items in her personal style and taste. It’s not a subscription; she will just use the amount toward her box. Grab a cute coin purse or tote at your local store or Target to pair it with…
Emily Ley – I love it when companies have cute gift cards you can print! How darling is this one from Emily Ley? She can use it toward a calendar for the new year or perhaps a Family Cookbook or Baby Book. Pair with some some Le Pens. (Great for writing in her planners!)
FabFitFun – Seasonal personal care boxes sent to her doorstep. She can use her gift card toward a membership. Pair with a fun mascara!
Stonewall Kitchen Speciality Food Club – Find a jar of Stonewall Kitchen jam or bread at your local grocery store (or on Amazon). Tie on a printable gift certificate for a 3 month speciality food club membership ($80). They will love receiving goodies at their doorstep each month!
Kiwi Crate Subscription – Great gift for children! (0-16) Hands on science experiments and art kits. Pair with some colored pencils, markers, etc.
Wine Club – There are so many great wine club membership gifts. This company specializes in small production wineries. Print out the certificate and pair with a bottle of wine for a nice presentation.
Cowboy Boots – Put together a last minute western gift basket, purchase some Texas gourmet goodies at your local market, or tie a printable e-gift card up with a red bandana for a unique gift!
Tickets, museum memberships, and passes to other local attractions are also fun gift ideas. Hope these last minute gift ideas inspire. Share your ideas below!
