Every year, despite making gift idea spreadsheets (or, okay, thinking about making gift spreadsheets) and
shopping all summer reading catalogues religiously, I end up on a whirlwind shopping outing with my dad on Christmas Eve. Admittedly, it's kind of become our thing: Bundle up, deliberately choose a far-away parking spot at the mall, joke about getting everyone Yankee Candles, and then bee-line to meet some other delinquent shoppers for a celebratory drink when we've had our way with the Dillard's cashmere scarf section.
It'll be hard for your giftee to turn down a Dillard's cashmere scarf (especially without a gift receipt). But in the event that you don't want them to know that you got their present at the last minute, here are 17 ideas for last-minute gifts they'll love just as much as those procured in a timely fashion.
What's your go-to last-minute gift that's not a Dillard's scarf (because I called it)—share in the comments!
