last minute Christmas shopping

home depot gift card

There is still time to get some great Christmas gifts. Here are some of my favourite ideas for practical last minute gifts. Who can't use a gift card from Home Depot? There are light bulbs, cleaning supplies, paint and even some fun things like decorative mirrors, magazines and new knobs to make over a kitchen or bathroom in a jiffy.

soy candles 1

These are always handy and smell great! Go for bees wax or soy for an environmentally friendly touch.


Specialty coffees and teas. Almost everyone drinks one or the other, or at least serves it for guests, so this is a gift that is sure to please. Choose high end for a special treat that is anything but ordinary. Then add a gorgeous mug, or tea pot to go with it if you like.

holiday cookies

Go to your local bakery and pick up gorgeous cookies and treats and be sure to wrap them beautifully for the ultimate in consumable gift giving.

dish towels anthroplogie

Super awesome dish towels can be expensive, but as a treat for a gift, they are suddenly very affordable. These brightly coloured beauties are from Anthropologie, one of my favourite stores.Clothes are difficult to choose for someone, home decor items that have to be out like a pretty vase are so subjective, and perfumes are way too personal, so keep things simple to be sure to please everyone!
