It’s safe to say the malls are officially a write off, but now time is also of the essence. Enter local online shopping. It’s not guaranteed they can deliver using their standard (much cheaper) shipping rates, but they are just a hop skip and a jump away so we’re pretty sure something can be arranged if you get on the computer and and maybe follow-up with a phone call to customer service ASAP. If all else fails we say wrap a picture of the gift with a note that says “en route”. It is the thought that counts after all.
May we suggest:
Slim Laptop Tote in Heather from Melissa Beth Designs, $139 USD
We love the soft velour outer and sweet print on the inside plus, the tote comes in small and large to accommodate 13″ – 15.4″ laptops. Melissa Beth also offers chic lap top sleeves, make-up cases, diaper bags and much more. Use code ‘loulou’ at the checkout to save 25% off regular priced merchandise. Act fast! Their online shop closes tomorrow for the holidays.
Pretty Panties Mailed Monthly from Panty By Post, Starting at $30
We think Panty By Post is an ingenious service and a panty subscription makes a fabulous gift. Imagine opening a tiny little parcel each month with sexy or sweet unmentionables enclosed? Choose from an array of thongs, hipsters and bikinis or ask for the recipient to be surprised. Of course, the first panty won’t be delivered until after the holidays, but we’re pretty sure it will be worth the wait.
A Goat. Nope, Not Kidding. Oxfam, $58.
For the girl (or guy) who has everything, perhaps another “thing” isn’t the right gift. We love the idea that a gift could change the lives of others and that’s exactly what happens when you donate livestock via Oxfam. It’s more than just providing a village with food. This gift provides communities with marketable goods like milk that they can sell to generate more income.
PlastiChic Bling (a.k.a Crystal Frame Watch), $29.99
PlastiChic watches are seriously stylish and have been getting tons of fashion editor and celebrity love. Their Canadian online store opened just in time for Christmas and you can order up until December 23rd and still have your goodies shipped in time for Christmas. We love the glam factor of the Crystal Frame version and FYI they look great stacked so don’t feel limited to buying just one.
