We've all been there! Someone pops over at Christmas for a mince pie and a glass of mulled wine. Only to turn up at your door laden down with presents for you and yours, that you weren't expecting. Nightmare! Especially if you haven't got them anything in return. But worry not! As there is still a little time left for you to get them something, and you don't even have to think too hard about it either, with our gift guide below.
Ah, foodies are just the best to buy presents for! This is because you can just about get them anything edible, and they are bound to appreciate it. Particularly great foodie gifts include hampers full of luxury eats that they can enjoy over the festive period such as Christmas cookies and cheeses.
An out of the box type present that any foodie would appreciate is a voucher for a cooking lesson. You can use them for their favorite cuisines like Asian food or cake making. You can even get courses that teach them how to make their own cheese and sausages. How about that for an original, and easy last minute Christmas present?
The Health Addict
Buying a gift for a health addict may seem a bit more problematic, but it doesn't have to be. There is actually loads of cool ideas that you can go with, and they don't have to be boring at all. For example, if you are up for spending big bucks, why not get a fitness band so they can monitor their workouts everyday?
Or, of there are really into their healthy diet, why not treat them to a nice new blender so they can have a 'delicious' kale smoothie every morning? Rather them, than us right?
The only issue you might come up against here is deciding which blender to buy? Then you need to check out recommendations sites like https://www.blenderfriend.com/oster-versa/. These can help you find the best one.
The Wine Aficionado
If the person you have to get a last minute gift for is a bit of a wine aficionado then it's ironically best to stay clear of actual wine.
The thing is, they will probably know much more about it than you do. So it is too easy to get it wrong. Instead, go for some wine-related gadgets like an electric corkscrew available at sites like http://shop.wineenthusiast.com/.
The Family Man
If the person that you have to buy a last minute gift for isn't really into one particular thing. Or, does not have a clear hobby, it can sometimes be difficult to decide what would make an appropriate present. However, if they have a partner, family or housemates, then a great gift can be a hilarious board game to play over the Christmas season.
For example, you can get hem a copy of Spit it Out, where you have to try and make yourself understood even though you are eating a gum guard! Or how about the classics like Pictionary or Articulate? You could even go for something super messy like Pie Face, which will definitely be good for some festive laughs over the holidays!
