Last Minute Christmas Gifts

Last Minute Christmas Gift Guide – Under $40!

I have a pretty big love for Amazon Prime. Free 2 day shipping is great all year around, but when considering that Christmas is 8 very short days away, it can be a life savor this time of the year.

If you’re like me and have procrastinated a few last gifts on your list, read below for my Procrastinator’s List for Last Minute Christmas Gifts. 🙂


1. Ho Ho Ho-liday Wine Bottles

These simple DIY bottles are perfect for your everyday wine lover. A few Christmas’s ago, I was right in the middle of finals and needed some last minute crunch gifts. I made them for DJ’s sister, as well as my siblings. They’re so cute but also great to share!

8. Bluetooth Shower Speaker : $19.99

So, once one of my iPhones died of water damage for simply being in the bathroom while I was taking a shower. It didn’t get wet, but the steam was enough to damage the phone.
