7 last minute Christmas gift ideas for women that they will love!
1-Give a gift basket for the gourmet-loving woman. Fill a basket with cheese, gourmet cookies, crackers and an assortment of candies and chocolates.
Avoid the use of perishable food items in your Christmas gift basket. These treats will need immediate refrigeration or will spoil in intense heat.
2-Purchase a gift certificate to an online store. Buy online gift cards to places like eBay, Amazon.com, Target, Best Buy, and more.
When you buy an online gift certificate, the company will usually give you the option of having an announcement emailed directly to the recipient. Or, print out the purchase details, stick it in an envelope, and give that as a Christmas gift.
3-Bake cupcakes or cookies as a last-minute Christmas gift. For the budget-conscious gift giver who bakes, nothing says “Merry Christmas” like a large plate filled with oatmeal raisin or chocolate chip cookies.
If you bake cupcakes, whip up a dozen of the recipients favorite flavored cakes. Add colorful sprinkles and frosting to specialize the cupcakes for Christmas.
4-Give a beautiful picture frame. To display a photo from her wedding, graduation or a family portrait , purchase a silver or gold picture frame. If the Christmas gift is for a family member, personalize the gift by including a photo of the both of you together.
5-Buy a magazine subscription. If the recipient of the Christmas gift is obsessed with the latest celebrity gossip magazines or Rachel Ray's cooking and lifestyle recommendations, give her a 6 or 12-month subscription to a magazine.
Trust me, this is one of the best Christmas gifts to fall back on if you haven't got much time. Don't scrimp, buy her a full year to something she really loves and is great quality.
6-Purchase a spa gift certificate. A combination pedicure and manicure spa gift certificate is a special treatment to help a woman relax before the busy and hectic Christmas Season. If you are short on cash, purchase the pedicure or manicure session only, and skip the full-day spa treatment.
7-Give a gift certificate to her favorite restaurant. A lot of restaurants will offer gift vouchers and if she's the type of person that enjoys eating out; this may be more successful than a set of soaps and a flannel.
As a small token of love or appreciation for that special woman in your life, purchase a Christmas gift that suits the personality of your female coworker, friend or family member.
While the last minute Christmas gift ideas for women does not have to be too expensive, it should be memorable and sentimental.
