55 Last Minute Christmas Presents for Every Pocket
Written by Oana Schneider

Looking for last–minute Christmas presents? You’ve come to the right place. Check out our list and decide which present fits your budget, then have fun shopping! Have a great Christmas, everyone!

Affordable Gifts Ideas for Your Wife

For your wife, try to buy things that she would enjoy, not necessary things that she needs. Look for a cool donut maker, a pair of cute earrings, molecule necklace, pedicure tools, or a pair of pajamas to nap in waiting for Santa.

Try to think outside the box and they say that it’s the thought that counts, not the actual present, but we beg to differ. Choose something she would like and use on a regular basis, not something that’s more of a present for you, like sexy lingerie.

Affordable Gifts Ideas for Your Husband

If your husband is the outdoorsy type, look for camping goods (sleeping bag, a great lantern etc.), some good tools for his little repairmen projects or go for something he will really like: beard trimmers, scalp massagers, slippers, tabletop foosball games and Bluetooth speakers. Try to keep his tastes in mind, not yours! Here are a few last minute Christmas present ideas to help you out:

1. French Press Coffee Maker – $19.95

Affordable Gifts Ideas for Your Kids

When it comes to kids, most parents choose to buy useful items, which really make kids hate Christmas. Instead of buying a plain sweater, go for a fun one, if it has to be a sweater to begin with.

Otherwise, look for fun products: Pokemon ring, Star Wars Lego, Karaoke systems, Disney toys and the list continues. And here’s another trick: kids are more impressed by the number of gifts than by the overall cost of them, so choose several but inexpensive toys instead of a big doll, for example! See our picks!

8. Rory’s Story Cubes – $9.97 
9. Pokemon Z–Ring Interactive Set – $29.99
10. Orbeez Ultimate Soothing Spa – $34.99
11. Hasbro Pie Face Showdown Game – $18.99
12. Rubik’s Race Game – $19.99
13. Melissa & Doug Magician Role Play Costume Set – $20.99

Affordable Gifts Ideas for Your Friends

When it comes to friends and family, buying Christmas presents can be both easy and difficult. If your friend likes watching sports, get him a football bottle opener, and if she loves cooking buy her a crock–pot to make all her favorite recipes.

You can also go with necklaces, magic coffee mugs, a personalized wine glass etc. Here’s our list of last minute Christmas presents for family and friends:

  • These are great ideas, and not just for Christmas, but also for other times of the year such as birthdays when you might be thinking about what gift you can get for somebody. One thing that I really do agree with is that it is a good idea to get people gifts that they are going to enjoy rather than just gifts that they need, as this means that they will have a much more exciting Christmas in general.
