Most of us last minute sheep. We don’t really think about things until we find its already time. That works just so precisely when it comes to gifts. Gifts are somethings we religiously leave for the last minute. But it isn’t easy to scramble up gifts at the last minute unless you have a magic list.

So here you have a magic list to procure those last minute gifts that won’t look like they are last minute.

1- Gift cards

Gift cards are an awesome way of making gifts to anyone whether they are close friends or distant colleagues. Nowadays you can find gift cards for almost all occasions and all stores. Just make sure you learn the place your subject frequents.

2- Buy a day out

If you really can’t think of anything, you could just buy your friend out. A visit to the spa or an event ticket is a great idea. You can purchase these online through Groupon and LivingSocial. All you have to do is click ‘Buy as a gift’ and send to your loved one.

3- DIY gifts

You can also try some nice Do-It-Yourself gifts for your partner. DIY gifts can sometimes be much prettier easier and quicker to do. You could paint or color a mug, cut an old book into a stash book, put together a leather keychain using an old belt or simply mix up some home-made spa treatment with fancy casings. The possibilities are endless.

4- Order over gift websites

For the perfect impression of a well-thought-out gift, it is best to choose a gift over gift websites. You could preferably choose inappropriate gag gifts to make for a funny and lasting impression on your friend or loved one.

5- Box of chocolates

Chocolates are wondrous things that work as a great gift for any occasion just like flowers. Don’t forget to drop some unconventional lines with the case to make for an inappropriate gag gift that they will remember and cherish.

If you know a little about what your friend prefers, it will be easy for you to choose a gift at the last minute. For book lovers, Kindle subscriptions will do, for movie lovers, HBO and Netflix subscriptions are ideal, for tech lovers, you could make a tech gift and fitness lovers will love fitness guides or yoga classes. Your cooking enthusiasts will definitely appreciate a chef class or a recipe book and sports lovers can use a ticket to a nearby match.

All you need is to be just a little creative with your gift. In the end, it is the thought that counts.
