Whether you’re just starting your shopping (this might be the happiest time of the year, but it’s also the busiest… don’t worry, we’ve all been there!), still searching for the perfect gift for your best friend who always seems to read your mind and get you just what you wanted, still looking for a gift for your son’s girlfriend who you’ve only met once, or just finding out that your sweet mom who you agreed not to exchange gifts with this year bought you something anyway…we’ve compiled a list of our favorite last-minute gift ideas so you can cross those last few people off your holiday shopping list! Stay tuned… we’ll be posting more last minute gift ideas over the next week.
Julie Glassman’s Zodiac necklaces feature hand-restored vintage glass from early 1900s Japan, Germany, and Czechoslovakia. Full of color and rich with history, we love that the necklace comes with a story that the recipient gets to add to as she wears it. $60-66.
Maruca calls this bag the busy-body, and we can see why! This hard-working little bag holds the essentials and just a bit more, so she can dash from the farmer’s market right to date-night. Maruca’s richly colored fabrics always match any outfit we pair them with. (Gain major Christmas bonus points by adding a wallet inside for an extra surprise!) Busy Body Sling: $58, Coin Purse: $14
Artist Darlene Maestas’ jewelry is the perfect combination of whimsy and her background in fine art. Full of character, rich in texture and color, and completely one-of-a-kind, this is the perfect gift for any woman who walks to the beat of her own drum and knows the value of embracing individuality. $95-295
Who wouldn’t want these foxy friends tagging along on errands and travel adventures? Complete with two outside zip pouches, an adjustable strap, and Tutela’s signature funky prints… this is functional art at its finest! Evie Bag with Foxes: $61
Life is too short for matching socks! Solmate’s mismatched socks add a bit of quirk and a splash of color to any outfit. Available for adults and babies, they’re perfect to stuff in every family member’s stocking! $21
Meg Hannon’s fabric jewels are made by rolling hand-dyed fabric, sealing it with glue, then slicing the cross-section, which reveals a miniature world of colors and intricately detailed patterns. Meg’s process is entirely her own invention, so your loved ones won’t have anything quite like this in their jewelry collection. Special and unique without being too expensive ($29-$36), this is our go-to gift for groups of girlfriends.
Stay tuned…we’ll be posting more last-minute gift ideas later this week!
