Holiday 2018 gift guide: last-minute gifts

Procrastinators, this one's for you. There's one Amazon Prime–able thing here (also available for instant download on Kindle) but otherwise these are all e-giftable, making them both environmentally friendly and quick. Here are ideas for people you might have forgotten, or just for shoppers who really like to leave things till the last minute.



1. You might be too late, at this point, for your flowers to arrive by Christmas, but you can order in advance and, if you want to go really baller, schedule a regular delivery, i.e. a gift that keeps giving.
Farmgirl Flowers fun-size bouquet starting at $49

2. Pretty much every woman I know who hasn't read this book already wants to read it (myself included). And that's pretty much all I need to say about this (what I'm sure is a completely inspiring) masterpiece.
Becoming Michelle Obama starting at $14.99

3. This is such a cool gift, I kind of want it myself! This pass gets you and whomever you have in your non-commercial vehicle into all of every national park for an entire year. Um, not that I go to many national parks, but I think this would encourage anybody to!
Annual National Parks pass $80

4. This is kind of a goofy gift, in that no one probably goes through loofahs so quickly that they need a new one every month, but in terms of bang for your buck, it goes pretty far: a mere $35 gets you six months' worth of deliveries.
Club Loofah gift subscription starting at $35 for 6 months

5. Not really a gift for millennials, Legacybox is a service that digitizes all of your analog photos and movies. It's sentimental, yes, but also perfect for Throwback Thursday posts on Instagram.
Legacybox starting at $87.95

6. I was kind of enraptured by Rent the Runway's founder Jenn Hyman's episode of the How I Built This podcast; I also know several stylish women who swear by their monthly service—kind of a Netflix for clothes. As a blogger who's constantly trying to come up with new outfits, I'm pretty intrigued as well.
Rent the Runway starting at $69

7. There are a bunch of French-themed subscription boxes out there, but none is as luxurious as Oui Please, which has options for both men and women and features such brands as Kusmi Tea and Etat Libre d'Orage fragrances. This one's a splurge, but worth it for Francophiles.
Oui Please Box starting at $150 (30% off with code OUIGIFT30)

8. Full disclosure, I read about this service on Goop, which I love in a shameful, secret way. Like most of the stuff that Gwyneth Paltrow recommends, I feel like...it can't hurt, right?
Enchanted crystal subscription box $16–$42

9. For the do-gooder and/or animal lover in your life, this website is very 1998, but the cause is very 2018. Plus, you get to pick which elephant you want to foster, which is cute.
David Sheldrake baby elephant fostering starting at $50

I really want to read Michelle Obama's new book! They were sold out of it at Barnes & Noble! It must be a popular gift this year.

I'm going to take a look at Farm Girl flowers. I'm not *that* late for Christmas, just looking for a nice thank you gift.
