Well well well. Look who waited until the last minute to get the person he loves a present. Just kidding — we’re not gonna shame you for last-minute shopping (mainly because we too, have bought exactly zero gifts). So we’ve made it a bit easier on all of us and have narrowed down some of the best last-ditch effort gifts for the women in your life that don’t scream I ran out of time and instead scream I am a thoughtful person and thank God for expedited shipping.

Which is another thing to note, if you’re looking to get these gifts in time for the holidays, you may need to shell out a few more bucks on shipping — but hey, she’s worth it.

The Excercise Dress

One of Outdoor Voices’ best-selling products for the ladies. The main draw to the Exercise Dress is how versatile it is. Great for working out due to its breathable LightSpeed fabric featuring a built-in shorts liner and phone pocket, and cute enough to be worn during non-workout activities. 

Editor Hoops

These dainty gold hoops from Mejuri are simple, elegant and light enough that she can wear them alllll day long. 

Veja Leather Sneakers

As seen on Meghan Markle and a dozen other celebs, Veja’s sustainable leather sneakers have been all the rage this past year. Why is that? Well, they’re incredibly stylish and easy to pair with almost any outfit. And they’re made from responsibly sourced leather — a win-win. 

Medium Checked Coated-Canvas Tote

She can throw her gym stuff, laptop, makeup and all her other everyday essentials in this super chic checked tote and comfortably carry it over her shoulder.

Scented Candles Whiskey River

Please don’t only buy her a candle. But if you’re looking for something to go with a much higher-priced gift, this collection of candles from Whiskey River Soap Company are pretty damn perfect. They’re not your average candles. Sure they still smell nice, but with scents like “Social Anxiety” and “Tiny Successes,” she’ll get a good laugh and will most likely burn them quite a lot. 

Glossier You

Glossier is mainly known for its skincare products (many of which your lady probably owns), but the dark horse in Glossier’s catalog of beauty products is their Glossier You perfume. The three base notes are meant to melt into her skin, so what she (and you) will be smelling is the clean, warm, lovely scent that is her essence.

The Bouqs Co. Flower Subscription

Subscription services are the gift that keeps on giving, and this monthly flower subscription from Bouqs is especially thoughtful, and easy — all you have to do is pick the number of stems and flower type. Think of it as 12 gifts for the price of one. Just make sure you get her a bouquet to kick things off in person, ya dummy.

Zodiac Bar Necklace

Show her that you really pay attention by getting a necklace featuring her star sign. She’s bound to be impressed by your astrological knowledge (and the fact that you know her birthday).

The Violet Box – Bestsellers

If you’re unsure of what she’ll like, why not get her one of everything? This box from Violet Grey features 13 of their best selling products, from makeup to hair care. Valued at $441, this is a steal.

Prada Saffiano Leather Credit Card Holder

Who would say no to Prada? In addition to being, you know, Prada, this cute lil guy is also functional and handy. It pretty much speaks for itself.

Acne Studios Canada Fringed Mélange Wool Scarf

What better way to show her you love her than by getting a nice cozy scarf that’ll protect her against the frigid temperatures? Plus, every time she wears it she’ll think of you. Aww.

J.Crew Vintage Pajama Set

If you’re sick of her stealing your shirts to sleep in, why not gift her with a classic pair of pj’s? It’s a subtle way to get her to stop raiding your closet, but these pajamas are so soft (and chic) that she’ll never look back.

Slip Ultimate Beauty Sleep Collection

And to go with the aforementioned pajamas is this collection of silk beauty sleep products from Slip. The silk pillowcase, sleep mask and scrunchies will ensure she gets the best sleep, all while preventing bed head and those annoying pillowcase creases.

Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 Instant Film Camera

It may sound corny, but there might be some truth to the adage that the most precious gift of all is memories made. This mini polaroid camera by Fujifilm will allow her to capture your best moments and time spent together, and cherish them for years to come.

Naked Cashmere Puff Slipper

After a long day what could be better than coming home to than these cashmere slippers? Once she slips these on she’ll forget all her worries and woes.
