Christmas is 3 days. You didn’t buy a gift for your cousins mother-in-law, but she bought one for you. Two more couples just RSVP’d to Christmas Eve, and you need last minute gifts. You haven’t procrastinated, you just can’t prepare for last minute things like this!
We’ve got you covered with 5 ideas for gifts that a) do not require setting foot in a store, b) do not require paying any kind of expedited delivery fees, and c) won’t make you look like you threw something together last minute.
Give the Gift of Monthly Subscription Services
For the busy women in your life that crave anything that comes with convenience. BiziBubble is a monthly subscription service where women can get their feminine hygiene products delivered to their door automatically every month. They are able to customize EXACTLY what they need each month without having too many unwanted sizes or quantities left over. It’s that ‘different’ gift that will set you aside from everyone else this year.
We also highly recommend BirchBox, another monthly subscription service, which allows you to sample and shop for the latest and greatest in beauty products. You receive monthly deliveries of deluxe beauty, grooming, and lifestyle samples, tailored to your profile and needs.
What to get the #SceneBoys who have everything. After lots of research, we came across the Dollar Shaving Club, which allows men to pick out a handle and razor cartridges each month for one tiny fee.
Give the Gift of Food
One of our favorite gifts would be the gift of cheesecake. Not just any kind of cheesecake, but NYC’s best,Juniors Cheesecake. They have an easy and convenient online ordering system that will have their delicious cheesecake delivered right to the door of your recipient. It’s the perfect gift for the Christmas entertainers in your life. If you have never heard of Juniors, chances are, half of the people at your Christmas party have. It’s an iconicstaple in Times Square that is unmatched by any other dessert company in NYC. Lindsey personally orders Juniors every year for her family on Christmas Eve. Call it a selfish, but no one seems to complain!
Give the Gift of Relaxation
We can all use a spa day after the hectic holiday season, and our favorite South Florida spas have made it 10xeasier to pamper your loved ones this year. Each one of the spas we have listed below are not only #LLSceneApproved, but you can easily customize and buy an instant gift certificate online that is immediately emailed to you.
Give the Gift of Cooking
As you know, we are still mastering the art of cooking at LLScene. We have a lot of newlywed friends that would appreciate a fun and interactive night out, while they learn to cook. Sur La Table in Mizner Park offers date nightcooking classes complete with delicious food and lots of wine! Gift certificates can easily be bought online by visiting SurLaTable.com.
After Lindsey’s wedding, we look for any excuse to visit The Breakers. Ironically enough, they sell gift certificates online too! You can purchase a gift certificate for one of their award winning Sunday brunches, a spa day, or for a nights stay at this iconic hotel.
#SceneBoys are impossible to buy for no matter how close you are with them. That being said, most 20something men have recently taken up the sport of golf, which means they aren’t very good yet. We just came across a great Groupon deal for private classes in Delray Beach. Being a golfer or not, chances these men will have to take up the sport eventually because of the demands that come with being an undeniable successful corporate go-getter. Invest in their future with golf lessons!
We are at the age where we want to have everything covered during the holidays, until we don’t, and then all hell breaks loose. Being at this ‘in between’ stage in life, it can get a little hectic and stressful trying to accomplish it all. Just remember, you can’t please everyone or be the perfect girlfriend, mom, fiance, wife, or #SingleSceneGirl. Take the pressure off and stop trying to please everyone. When you start to see the stress of it all getting to you, remember how you viewed Christmas as a child. Live in the moment and enjoy the last days of the most wonderful time of year!
