Christmas is basically here! But if you’re reading this, you still have people on your nice list that need a gift, no idea what to get them–and very little time to come up with ideas.  What do you get for the people that have everything, anyway?

We have good news for you!  The items listed below can be wrapped up under the tree for a friend or family member in less than a week.

Gift Cards

This one tops our list for obvious reasons.  Although it may seem impersonal, most people are definitely not likely to complain about having an excuse to save money. The key is to try making sure that it’s a gift card that they’d actually want to use.

Microwavable Slippers

Who wouldn’t want their tootsies to be nice, soft, and warm?  Amazon has several varieties available that can be popped directly into a microwave for about 45 seconds. They are perfect for those times you might get a case of cold feet.

Fleece Anything

‘Tis the season for freezin’! As with the microwavable slippers, any gift of comfort and warmth is usually gladly accepted. That is, as long as you use good taste. Not every gal is fond of pink, and not every guy wants camo everything. Opt for solid colors or a gift card that says, “Get yourself something warm and cozy!”

Beer-Infused Hot Sauce

Amazon has a variety pack of beer-infused hot sauce, and what items go better together than beer and hot sauce?  Or at least, the food that typically tastes best when covered in hot sauce (I’m looking at you, chicken wings) tends to pair well with beer.

Cast Iron Dutch Oven

You know that sweet little old aunt of yours that posts the most incredibly volatile memes on social media? I bet she’d love an enameled cast iron dutch oven! They’re fantastic for making fabulous roasts, homemade soups and many more delightful dishes that can be shared at family gatherings where you pretend you didn’t see said memes.

Subscription Boxes

If none of the above really call out to you, you can also consider the wide variety of subscription boxes that are available these days. From food to perfume, from jewelry to makeup, from socks to pet items, to…  well, you get the point.

There is truly something for everyone, and most everyone wouldn’t mind 3-12 months of surprises throughout the year.
