End of Year Series #3: (Very) Last Minute Christmas Gifts
Ok, so I’m gonna touch basis on a very very important topic that I keep seeing pop up on my IG feed. Last Minute Christmas shopping!! I’m the MASTER of this. While my family stopped celebrating Christmas when I was very young (which is probably why I’m such a procrastinator when it comes to gifting) I still celebrate it or try my best to lol and make it a habit to give to those closest to me.
It’s Thursday, December 20th and I will not have time to go shopping today after work. Tomorrow is Friday… and guess what, on everybody else’s calendar it’s Friday too and it’s not just any Friday… it’s the Friday before Christmas, which means EVERYBODY will wanna go shopping too! So as I have thoroughly given thought to this and not wanting to take my booty to a crowded ass mall… I need to find other methods or ways of doing my very last minute Christmas shopping.
So I decided to put together a list of items/stores/local businesses that could help with this issue us procrastinators face.
- Amazon- While you may think online is a lost hope, Christmas is not till next Tuesday. So if you order today or maybe even tomorrow (Friday) and have Amazon Prime, you may be able to pull it off! I have Amazon Prime and have never had issues with them taking long with my orders as long as the products are “Prime.” Amazon also has sooo much to choose from.
- Local Businesses- I know here in Houston we have so many small local businesses that sell anything from jewelry, small novelties, graphic tees and clothing. I’ve actually attached the link to a few of them I have bought from myself or have encountered through social media (one of them being yours truly, lol) that would make the perfect gift! You could even see if some of them would offer the option of meeting up or picking up for faster delivery… since we’re on a time crunch here lol!

- Sam’s Club- If you have a Sam’s Club near you then you’ve hit the jackpot of procrastination gifts. They legit have a wide selection of gift card, gift baskets already decorated and just plenty of clothing and stuff you can give at very affordable prices!
So I hope this kinda helps and takes you away from the mall lol. Just to prove to you too that I got all these gifts from above named places, check this complete outfit out! I got the red jumpsuit from Amazon for $25!! And the grey long cardigan was from Sam’s Club (believe it or not) for just $16! Sooo let’s get it together and get to shopping! Lol, I really hope you all have an amazing Christmas and get to enjoy your loved ones.
Merry Christmas <3
