Simple Last-Minute Gift Ideas: Under $30


Hello, everyone. Today I realized that Christmas is only ten days away, which is both exciting and nerve-wracking because once Christmas is over; I’ll go back to school soon after, so I want to enjoy home as much as possible before I start a new semester.

Today I want to share some last-minute gifts that you can put together for a sister, boyfriend’s parents or male co-worker.  I think it’s always nice to have ideas on-hand in case something comes up.

Wristlet of Goodies:

  • This is one of my go-to ideas for a last-minute gift for any girl. Buy a wristlet for around $15 (There are some on sale at Express for under $10) and stuff it with lottery tickets, lipstick, a compact mirror and lucky penny! Your friend will appreciate a cute gift that she can use throughout the year.

Meet the Parents:

  • So, you’re meeting your boyfriend’s parents for the first time? (Trust me, I feel your pain.) My simple go-to idea is an edible arrangement. It might sound cheesy, but believe me when I say that chocolate-dipped fruit is amazing. Or, a gift card to any restaurant will do. Both gifts will cost about $25, which isn’t too bad, especially if you want to win them over. Good luck!

Secret Santa:

  • You picked a person you know nothing about for a Secret Santa giveaway and it’s a guy…Bummer, but no need to fear. The simple route to take is buying a mug. You pick a comical one with it to lighten the mood or just go old school with it. Fill it with a few lottery tickets, car wash vouchers or a gift card to a local coffee shop. Any man will appreciate winning money, taking care of his car or buying coffee.


I hope you all enjoyed reading some of my last-minute Christmas gift ideas that you might need to use this holiday season. Whether you’re participating in a Secret Santa gift exchange or meeting the parents for the first time, I hope your holidays are filled with good memories with your loved ones. Enjoy the rest of your day and as always, I will talk to you all soon.
