Lifehack Readers’ Last-Minute Gift Suggestions
Last-Minute Gift Ideas

Last week I asked for your best last-miute Christmas gift suggestion and once again you came through. Usually I give my response to the question first, but I’ve already done that with my Lifehack Last-Minute Gift List for Productive (and Potentially Productive) People last Wednesday.

There’s not a lot of time left for Christmas shopping, but there’s plenty here for someone still shopping, even today! Here’s some of the responses from last week thata might still be doable:

  • Email Gift Cards: I’d never heard of these — it’s a gift card code sent by email to your recipient. Amazon does this, and I’m sure plenty of other retailers do as well. (via Bob)
  • Oxfam Unwrapped: You fund charitable gifts in your recipients’ name. It’s too late to have a card sent to your recipient, but you can still give and have an Oxfam Unwrapped e-card sent. (via Ingrid)
  • Fund a Heifer.org Project: Same idea as Oxfam — you fund a project in your recipient’s name. (via Neha)
  • Photo Collages: Attractive picture frames stuffed with collages of photos, ticket stubs, and other memorabilia recapturing the last year with your friends and loved ones. (via Lloyd)
  • Custom Hampers/Baskets: A nice basket filled with your recipient’s favorite foods, wine, and other consumables. Could be candles, bath goods, or something else, too. (also via Lloyd)
  • A Life Experience: Like a gift card with a twist, how about a trip on a hot air balloon, a lesson at a race track, or if you’re feeling especially generous, a ride on the space shuttle, a Virgin Space reservation, or just a walk on the beach (in the Spring). (via Veteran Military Wife)
  • A Huge Block of Quality Cheese: Not grocery store stuff — how about a block of cave-aged gruyere, or even grass-fed cheddar. (via timgray)
  • Gift Subscription: Go to the bookstore, pick out a magazine they’d like, drop the gift subscription card in the mail, and wrap the magazine. Piece of cake! (via Lauea)

Most of this you can still manage if you get rocking right now. And none of these ideas are Christmas-only – keep them in mind for the next difficult birthday, anniversary, or other occasion.

Good giving!
