Last Minute Holiday Gift Ideas for the “Hard to Gift”

Though you may try, you are not the “Six months in advance Christmas gift shopper”, it’s partly because you think you have plenty of time or maybe some people in your life are a bit more difficult to shop for. You usually find yourself scrambling for the perfect gift or at least one that isn’t so terrible. If you agree with these statements and a few of the following random “types” fit into your problem gifting list, then please read on.

Miss “It’s my Favorite Lipstick”

When it comes to beauty gifts, it’s pretty much a great gift and its not difficult to spot the beauty lovers in your life. For example, if her favorite lipgloss, lipstick or eyeshadow appear non-existent yet she insists there’s still some left – you’ve got a beauty lover. A wonderful gift for such a person is the LipStix ReMix™

A patent-pending system containing everything you need to Re-Color your lipstick, Recover lipstick in the bottom of the tube and Repair a broken lipstick. Beauty lovers know the old trick about putting lipgloss tubes in hot water to get more use out of it, layering one lipstick over another for that person shade and the heartbreaking feeling of their favorite lipcolor breaking in half. This kit will be an amazing stocking stuffer.

Miss “Don’t You Love This Perfume”

We all know fragrance is an extremely personal thing but there are some fragrances that are loved by all and in other forms (yes my dears, not all fragrances are liquid) can be a major hit. A huge favorite is the Lolita Lempicka Parfums and they have an amazing Shimmering Powdered Perfume

The perfect combination of the first Lolita Lempicka fragrance and an incredibly fine, gossamer-light powder with a golden shimmer. The high concentration of pure, fine talc leaves the skin soft and delicate. The addition of tiny sparkling fragments of mauve and gold mother-of-pearl gives this fragrant powder a jewel-like shimmer. What more can you ask for when you combine a sultry scent, touchable soft skin and a bit of sparkle.

Miss “I need a Fun Cover/Case For My ….”

This person embraces fashion. Their closet is full of various chic colors, prints, textures, styles and even their accessories have personality. If you have one of those fabulous gems then you need to introduce them to Vera Bradley (I’m pretty sure they’re probably acquainted though).

Known for their bold, colorful and eye-catching paisley and floral prints, Vera Bradley bags and accessories are definite standouts. Gifting someone with the stylish quilted cotton luggage, handbags and accessories with distinctive and colorful fabrics and trims are sure to make it a very happy holiday.

Miss “I am a 80’s Baby”

If you know what a slap bracelet is then this next gift is right up your alley. A time of great music, style and accessories; celebrate and reminisce about that wonderful era with some great stocking stuffers from RumbaTime Watches

Though they do offer several styles that are either buckle or snap on, the 80’s child in me loves the slap on styles and of course you get extra cool points when wearing one of these named after some of the coolest streets in NYC. Check out (in order of appearance) the Perry, Broadway, Broadway Mini, Broadway Hex and Broadway Hex Digital featured below, all are available in an array of slap on colors.

The Broadway Hex has an additional bonus features, pop out the watch face of any Broadway HEX and swap in a different color band to create whatever color combo that matches your mood (or your wardrobe).

Miss “Hostess with the Mostess”

You love attending the parties she has, she is like super woman in keeping everyone happy, fed and drinking. A bottle of wine will do for typical party gifting but at Christmas time, why not wow her with some of these amazing gifts all available at

This non-lead glass Libbey® 10-piece Punch Bowl Set includes a 13½-qt. punch bowl, eight 11-oz. punch cups and ladle. Don’t be surprised if you get invited to even more parties. Of course if she’s also loves to bake…

The Bella Mini Donut Maker will be a hit. This very wallet-friendly Donut maker will allow her to cook moist, delicious donuts that are a healthier alternative to deep-fried donuts and the ability to wow her guests with her delicious recipes.

I hope this helps a few of you get a better idea of what to get the “hard to get for” women on your list. Happy Holidays.
