Last Minute Gift Ideas for Everyone on Your List

This post is being sponsored by Tuesday Morning. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

The other day my daughter was on the computer checking out The Santa Tracker when she excitedly announced to the family that the big guy’s sleigh launch was in only 8 days, 14 hours and 7 minutes. All the kids were super excited by this news, but my stomach just dropped and panic mode set in a little.

With so little time left it’s tempting to just go binge on gift cards, but I really wanted to let the people I care about know just how special they are to me, and that means putting some thought into the gift giving.


A great way to do that, especially when time is limited, is to create personalized gift baskets that reflect the personalities and interests of particular friends and family members. For example, you might know someone who is a crafter, or a do-it-yourselfer, or a homebody. My mom and dad love to spend time in the kitchen cooking together, so I decided to create a baker’s basket and fill it with new baking essentials that would provide them with some exciting new culinary adventures. I have a friend who is an organization freak so I planned to pack her present with lots of gadgets any OCD person would love.

With my ideas in hand I headed to Tuesday Morning knowing I’d find not only a great variety of unique items, but also great prices. And I managed to put together some great gift matches which I think might help you out with your own holiday shopping dilemmas.

For the Baker

I picked up a variety of baking essentials in the beautiful and trendy copper plating.  From measuring cups to whisks, your favorite baker will be able to whip up sweet treats in style.  Add a copper canister, dish towels and a colorful oven mitt and hot pad.  I put all the utensils in the oven mitt, tied it with ribbon and added a cute “You Bake Life Sweet” printable tag.  


For the Crafter

Do you know someone who loves to use their creativity to make their own home decor and gifts? This gift basket is full of goodies that any creative do-it-yourselfer would love.  I found a 10×10 3D hanging pallet and a fun DIY Chalkboard Crafts book.  I added Americana Decor chalk paint, chalk pens, paint brushes and bakers twine.  I added it to a chalkboard basket and wrote a sentimental message for my favorite crafty friend!


For the Organizer

Do you have a friend that loves making to-do lists or updating their planner?  This gift is full of supplies that will help your favorite organizer keep everything in order in the new year.  A pretty clipboard, a colorful notebook, to-do list, desk pad calendar, binder clips, washi tape and a catch all desk tray are the perfect gifts for the girl boss in your life!


For the Homebody 

I’m the kind of girl that loves to go out and socialize, but my sister is a homebody and would much rather curl up on the couch with a cozy blanket and a good book.  I found lots of cozy gifts perfect for the friend in your life that just wants to stay in snuggle.  A soft and warm blanket is a must, combined with a fragrant candle, a beautiful mug and a fun “Stay Awhile” sign and you have the perfect gift for a cozy night in.  


For the Glamour Girl

Every girl on my list would love to receive a gift full of lush goodies that play up her sassy personality by decking her out in gifts with class and lots of style.  A luxurious and cozy hat and scarf set will keep her warm this winter. She can pamper herself in style with a fragrant and stylish candle and a lush bath soap.  Add a bag of decadent chocolate and this gift will help her feel just like the glamorous star that she is.


For the BBQ Man

This smokin’ hot gift is perfect for the BBQ Man in your life.  Whether it’s your dad or your husband this gift has everything he’ll need to light up the grill and flip those burgers with flair.  A 5-in-1 grilling multi tool will make sure he always has everything he needs while camping out or tailgating.  Add a jalpeno grill stand, grilling accessories, BBQ seasoning, and an oven mitt and dish towel and he will be grilling up a storm in no time.
