18 Last-Minute Gift Ideas From Our Readers You'll Love If You've Procrastinated Shopping For The Holidays

Run, don’t walk, to pick up a gift for the last person on your shopping list.

We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

While we’re doing our best to make sure the products we feature will arrive in time for Christmas, shipping times are especially tricky this year and can vary depending on where you live, which product you purchase, and more. Shop early and be sure to double check the retailers’ websites for shipping information to ensure that your gift will arrive in time for the 25th!

We recently asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us about their go-to last-minute gift. Here are their helpful suggestions that might just save your procrastinating butt this year:

1. A festive tin of popcorn that'll satisfy both their salty and sweet snack cravings.

2. A cute mug you can count on to bring a smile to their face not only when they open it for the first time but *also* when they use it each morning.

3. Warm crew socks featuring an array of fun colors, because they could probably use an upgrade from the ones with holes in them that they've been wearing.

4. A body wash and cream duo from Glossier they'll feel absolutely fabulous using while showering and after they dry off.

5. A Coravin wine preservation system *and* whiskey ice mold trays for the couple in your life who loves nothing more than to kick back and relax with a cold drink.

6. A thoughtful ornament that represents something they love, like reading or Star Wars, they can add to their already fabulous holiday decorations.

7. A festive candle and a throw blanket you can pair with some hot chocolate mix to make their next movie marathon the coziest ever.

8. An Alex and Ani charm bracelet inspired by Friends, because you might just be the Phoebe in the relationship who simply forgot to get a gift for one of the people you love most.

9. A coloring book and markers – they'll make a great gift for anyone whether they're artistic or barely knew how to stay inside the lines in elementary school — it's a fun present and will encourage them to unwind with an easy activity.

10. Or a gift card to Creative Box Studios, in case they've always wanted to expand their artistic skills beyond coloring book pages.

11. A pair of blue-light-blocking glasses for your pal who you *know* between work, video games, and TikTok spends waaaaay too much time staring at screens.

12. A variety pack of seasonal candles with fun designs on them, so they can use them to fill their room with their favorite scent *and* place them around the house as decor. Win-win!

13. Stylish velvet scrunchies they can use to upgrade their standard last-minute ponytail or wear on their wrist as a nod to their favorite '90s trend.

14. A graphic tee that'll be appreciated by your most fashion-forward friend *and* the one who typically dresses up in a white tee and jeans.

15. A reusable, insulated travel mug from Yeti for your pal who loves nothing more than taking a stroll around the block with a hot cup o' joe in the morning or enjoys watching the sunrise from their front porch (hi Dad, you're getting a Yeti).

16. A lovely bottle of their favorite wine delivered (safely) right to their front door so they can uncork it while watching A Christmas Story on Christmas Eve.

17. An array of self-care items, like a pack of sheet masks, luxurious lip balm or a festive nail polish, that'll make them feel extra special (even if your gift is border-line late).

18. And, if you're *really* cutting it close, you can always send an e-gift card so they can buy whatever they want! The gift that keeps on giving.
