10 Home Gifts Under $50... That Are Made for Christmas Procrastinators like Us
Last minute? No problem! We found perfect gifts for the home that will get there in time.
Remember last year when you swore you’d never procrastinate when it comes to buying Christmas presents again? Oops.
I know the borderline panic you’re feeling right now — but I’m happy to assure you that you’ve still got PLENTY of time until you’re SOL this gift-giving season. Regardless of whether it’s two days until Christmas Eve or Christmas Day itself, a handful of online retailers have you covered for something for everyone (Candles! Throws! Speakers!) on your neglected list. How do I know? Because I’ve been there and done that enough holiday seasons to know precisely which online shops let you get everything accomplished without anyone IDing you as the procrastinator you actually are.
Ahead, 10 perfect under-$50 gifts for everyone you still haven't shopped for. Each and every one of these presents will arrive on or before December 24, saving you from being an accidental Grinch this Christmas. Click quick and be done with it!
Voluspa Goji & Tarocco Orange Candle
Sure, candles aren’t exactly the most out-of-the box holiday gift — but everybody loves them. Order this one for your aunt or your best friend on or before December 20 at Sephora and you’ll qualify for standard shipping (free!).
Fresh Mangosteen Oval Soap
Luxury soap is the kind of thing everyone wants in their bathroom, yet most of us wouldn’t actually drop $15 on it for ourselves. Order on or before December 20 at Sephora and get it in time for Christmas with free delivery.
Nordstrom at Home Sheared Stripe Faux Fur Throw
We’ve talked up the faux fur trend before — and no doubt someone on your list will love a fuzzy throw as much as we would. Order by December 18 at Nordstrom and you’re safe (free shipping for everyone!). If you dilly dally, though, you can pay extra for next-day shipping until the 22nd. Or, if you’re really desperate, you can just order a gift card as late in the game as Christmas Day.
Serene House Starlight Electric Aromatherapy Diffuser
Another one of those items we don’t usually buy for ourselves. Why don’t we? Nothing makes a home cozier than flipping a switch and infusing your space with a favorite fragrance. Order by the 18th at Nordstrom for free shipping, or get next-day delivery for a fee until December 22.
Google Home Mini
Who doesn’t need a personal assistant sometimes? Actually, all the time? This virtual one can be had for Mom, Dad, whoever... all for less than $50. Get totally free shipping at Macy's right up to 5:00 p.m. on the 20th, or pay extra for same-day delivery right through 10:00 a.m. on the 24th in select areas.
Primula Cold Brew 20-Oz. Bottle
Ottolenghi Simple by Yotam Ottolenghi
Yotam Ottolenghi makes cooking his delicious recipes simpler than ever with his latest cookbook that a pro chef would appreciate just as much as a novice. Get yourself a Prime subscription (or even just a free trial), then feel free to procrastinate on purchasing from Amazon until December 22. It’ll still arrive by Christmas.
Lodge 3 Quart Cast Iron Combo Cooker
There’s a reason this pan set has a nearly four-star rating with nearly 3000 Amazon reviews (including mine!) and counting: It’s that good. This cast iron combo cooker is the kind of pan set that will make him forget every other pan he owns. Bonus: Its weightiness makes it feel extra impressive, but it's under $40. Order with Amazon Prime until the 22nd and it’ll be there before the holiday.
Holiday Chocolate-Covered Strawberries
You know what I want for Christmas? An excuse to eat a dozen chocolate-covered strawberries in a single sitting. Here’s hoping one of my loved ones is as big a procrastinator as me and gives me the chance to gorge with Harry and David’s free overnight delivery.
Riedel Wine Tumbler Set of Four
Pair these Reidel glasses with a favorite bottle of wine. They’re a thoughtful gift that looks way more elegant than their under-$40 price tag. Order with Amazon Prime until the 22nd to get them there in time for a Christmas Eve toast.
