Don’t panic! Last minute gift ideas

With one week left until Christmas, don’t panic – you can still shop online.  Expedited shipping is available and you will get what you need in time to wrap it nicely and get it under the tree!  But don’t wait, because many of these items can only be found online.

Since I do have lists in hand (truth…I haven’t started shopping yet 😳), I have decided not to go into panic mode.  Instead, I’m staying calm looking at all options, and thankfully there are many.  Since this will be my last gift guide to all those who are following along, consider this a carefully curated list.  I’ll start with my dear friend Carrie Minns, who most of you know is the magical photographer behind all my lovely photos.  But she’s also an accomplished writer, and recently published this beautiful book, La Pomme De Portland, which you can purchase here.

To see previous gift guides, look here for what to get your guy, and here for some great beauty ideas.  I also wrote about personalized jewelry here.

This latest gifting guide is divided into five sections:  travel picks, luxe items, hostess gifts, tech and beauty.  Shop away! Ask me any questions you may have, and make sure to request two-day shipping in order to receive your items quickly.

#1 travel picks

This suitcase by Calpak has been on my own list for quite some time.  Not only will the bright, fun colors stand out from the sea of black, you will feel so chic running through the airport!  And check out this packing cube set, which will help keep you organized, they’re really useful.


#2 luxe gifts

For the loved one in your family who has everything, these luxe gift ideas will please anyone who finds them under the tree Christmas morning.

#3 hostess gifts

These thoughtful items will make any hostess (or host) happy when you show up at their house!  Who doesn’t love a nice little gift just to thank them for entertaining?  This book by my dear friend Carrie Minns is a favorite.

One of my favorite kinds of gifts to give (and receive).  The options are endless so I’ve rounded up some favorites.
