What's Your Go-To Last-Minute Gift?

Your mom doesn't need to know you only *just* remembered to get her something in time for the holidays.

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.

So time has managed to creep up on you and you realized you still haven't gotten gifts for your mom, your secret Santa, or your best friend. Oops. What's a last-minute shopper to do?!


Will you play it safe with a seasonal candle in a nice glass jar?

I mean, who doesn't enjoy a nice, new candle?

Or you might want to find them something fun, like a cross-stitch kit, that'll also keep them busy and give them a creative outlet to unwind with?

Maybe you'd like to gift something practical but personal, like this mug, to make it seem like you *totally* didn't wait for the last second to pick something out?
