Friday Finds: Last-Minute Gift Ideas


I'm venturing into Manhattan today to go shopping for my husband and toddler. I'm not looking forward to this, but the month has caught up on me and it's crunch-time before the holidays. The toddler will be pretty easy to shop for, but my husband has a taste all his own. If you in the same boat as me there are a lot of ways to score some last-minute deals as well as options to get creative at home. Here are a few of my favorite gift ideas for those of us that wait until the bitter end.

1. Living with Coupons has a great collection of last-minute gift ideas from Amazon gift cards to magazine subscriptions. Easy and they can all be done online!

2. Queenbee Couponalso suggests gift cards but I also like her idea to make a homemade coupon for a service '?? babysitting, cleaning, yard work, errands, etc.

3. If you have an Apple fan in your life, The Apple Gazette has some great gift ideas including a iPlunge Phone Stand to a iPhone 5 Bottle Opener Case.

4. If getting to a store is not an option, you can make the simple Cookie Making Kit from Destination Craft. Featuring Better Crocker cookie mix, guest writer, Kellee, then covered the mix in a cute red damask plastic bag from Michaels and then wrote out the baking instructions on a tag! Easy, delicious and super cheap that would work for a hostess, teacher or friend.
