Believe it or not, Christmas is only 8 days away. I am guessing there are some procrastinators out there who just do NOT know what to buy. So here are a few last minute gift ideas.
Slacker Boyfriends (Didn’t I already give you a gift guide?):
A gym membership– I know this sounds mean, but actually, a dear friend of mine got one from her boyfriend this year and she couldn’t be happier. I would be psyched to get one too. It’s way too cold to be running outside. Not to mention, you’ll have the hottest girlfriend on the block!
Dance lessons (for the TWO of you)- This is a fun way for you two to spend some time together learning something new. Talk about bonding. If you can suck it up and get your two left feet moving, you will most definitely earn some brownie points. Contact your local dance studio to find classes (for beginners).
A weekend away- It could be Turks and Caicos or a bed and breakfast an hour away. Either way, make the reservations and present her with a packet of information on the rendez-vous. It’s romantic and spontaneous (both good things in all girls’ books).
Dilly dallying friends:
Tarte The Vanity Limited Edition Set– I got this for my friend for her birthday and she’s obsessed with it. So much so, that I actually bought one for myself and she bought one for her niece. Every single color is totally usable and it’s only $52! This is a total steal and a really convenient way to keep all of your essentials in one spot.
Gift certificate for pedicures- this is a great excuse for you two to sit and catch up with each other as well as catch up on all the gossip in trashy magazines. Who doesn’t love a good foot rub?
Booty Parlor Kissaholic Kissing Kit- includes a plumping lip gloss and breath mist containing exotic aphrodisiacs. It’s a fun and silly gift for $25.
Slow Poke Girlfriends:
Cashmere sweater-it might not be acceptable for him to buy YOU a sweater, but it’s totally fine for you to get him one (finally a double standard that works in our favor!). He probably needs your style help anyway and most guys don’t even realize that they are missing out by not wearing cashmere. I have fully converted my boyfriend. Plus, there are ridiculous sales right now. Some of the best I found at Macy’s, Nordstrom, and Bluefly.
new jeans- So, we made them throw away all of their True Religions. Now it’s time to bring them into the new with some stylish updated jeans. One of my favorite places for this is Jean Shop. There are several locations in New York and they are truly fit experts. First, they find the right fit then you have the option of buying the jeans raw (dark heavy indigo) or you can have them wash and distress the jeans to your liking. Let’s not get too crazy on the distressing though…
Tickets to a sporting event- Whether you choose to join him or make it a night out for the boys, he will be excited to see you taking note of his interests. Be sure to slip him an extra $20 for the beer and hot dogs.
Hopefully this helped all you delinquent shoppers out there and I wish you all a very happy holiday.
