Last Minute Gifts That Look Thoughtful

Big Kid 54

last minute christmas giftsEeek! Did you just remember those nephews and nieces that are coming over on Christmas Eve? Why yes it is the last minute, but that doesn't mean you're completely out of luck. (You're out of luck when you come home after the stores close and you're out of tape.)

But as long as you have the Internet, a 24-hour drug store, and some tape, you're in business. Here are five great gifts for kids that you can still get right this minute.


You can click and print at LivingSocial and give the kids on your list great gifts like Little Passports (a monthly subscription where Sam and Sofia send your kids letters, souvenirs, and fun games from around the world) for 50 percent off. Or try the gift of Roxo customizable wrist bands for only $10!

Head over to Moshi Monsters and buy a one- to six-month membership for the kids on your list who love the Internet. They really, really, really can't get enough of these Moshis.

According to, and to my local CVS, you can pick up a marshmallow gun on your way to the party. Marshmallows too. Then you just have to duck.

I shop all year round- so If I have a unexpected guest - I just grab one, wrap and I feel better.  I am not good with finding a last minute gifts.  I hate not being prepared.
