If you are anything like me, you are probably Mr. or Ms. Last Minute! I swear if I ever write an autobiography, it's going to be called "Running Late: The Ashley Almon Story". Yup.
Now, speaking of "Running Late", we are almost running late for the holidays! First off, I can't believe there are only 2 days left of Chanukah, and Christmas is a week from tomorrow! Crazy how time flies. In my family we celebrate both Chanukah and Christmas, so this time of year is a little bonkers.
So, I've compiled a list of quick gifts ideas to grab for some of your friends and family you may have temporarily forgotten about in the heat of the holiday moment. I know I do this sometimes, there's just so much to think about!
THE FOX AND THE THISTLE'S LAST MINUTE HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE
1) WINE, WINE, WINE
Always a great gift! Not sure which kind to get? I usually look at price at the grocery store and the reviews from team members. If a wine is reviewed well and is in the $15-$20 range, I think that's a decent gift to give! Bottoms up!
2) Fitness Classes
Let's face it, this time of year all we basically do is consumer sugar and spend money. That's stressful, so getting someone a few fitness classes (I recommend hot yoga) for the holidays is a great "Thank You" for being in my life kind of gift.
Want to sort of make your own gift? Give your loved one a recipe to make plus all of the ingredients. It's fun, easy, clever, and maybe you'll get to taste whatever delicious thing they end up making!
4) A Card with an Experience from YOU!
I feel like I do this every year. Just grab a nice card and write in it what you are going to do for the person. For example, one year my Dad did this for me, and inside the card he wrote:
"Merry Christmas"... For you:
1. Tickets to see any concert of your choice (for us to see together)
It was a great gift, and we ended up seeing Bob Dylan! Amazing!
5) A Card With a Donation to Their Favorite Charity
This is what Christmas is all about! Donate some cash to your loved one's favorite charity! You can't go wrong with extreme kindness!
