Last Minute Shopping Guide // Gifts That Will Arrive On Time

December 10, 2020


Erin Schrader

Well, well, well… we meet again. Welcome to the Procrastination Station [also known as LIY HQ], where procrastinators unite! The countdown to the holidays is officially on. Another year has rolled around, as well as another broken promise to myself to not wait until the last minute to get my holiday shopping done. We’ll get ’em next year. Maybe. But there’s no time for small talk. It’s crunch time, friends! Thankfully the good people at several stores are still setup to get you [and me] our gifts in time if we order quick! We’ve rounded up a list of those stores and made lists of some of our favorite items that are still available for gifting. Grab that hot cocoa, slip into something comfy, and let’s get to last minute shopping together!
