Oh no, Christmas is in 3 days: A list of last-minute gifts

Annemarie Mullet

The holidays are stressful. The stores are packed and relatives and friends may be picky about their gifts. With Christmas just three days away, we know you’re still doing some last-minute gift shopping. Here, you’ll find a list of some of the best quick, easy and memorable gifts for your loved ones.

Remember, Amazon is your best friend.

Massage Gun
The perfect gift for the fitness junkie. Massage guns come in all different shapes, sizes and colors. There seems to be an endless possibility. Add Gatorade, Cliff Bars and Liquid IV to show your fitness friend your appreciation for their hard work.

Lounge Set
For the person who loves to be comfy all day every day. Matching lounge sets make for the perfect gift. You can never go wrong with too many comfy clothes. You can find these at the local Marshalls or the local mall. Try pairing this gift with slippers and facial supplies.

Water Bottles
Whether it’s a Stanely or a Hydro Flask, a stainless steel water bottle is always on everyone’s wish list. What’s even better is you can find both in an array of colors. Not feeling either of these? Try gifting the newest popular water bottle on the block — the Owala.
Level this gift up by filling the water bottle with little goodies as well — candies, gift cards and little stocking stuffers would be a perfect addition to this gift.

Simply put, you can never go wrong with candles. It’s amazing how such a small gift can be so useful. Maybe add in a handwritten card and some candies with this one.

Reminiscent of childhood, Legos have never gone out of popularity. There is a set for everyone to build. Whether it’s Star Wars or the popular flower bouquet, even a non-Lego lover will find fun with this gift.

Gift cars, gift cards and more gift cards
Although it may seem not as personal, gift cards make for the perfect gift and they’re easy to get. This is perfect for the college student you know who pays for gas, groceries and opts for a daily coffee.
Sentimental and Handmade Gifts
Never think a materialistic gift is always better. Sometimes the hand-painted picture or lovely family photography makes for the best gift and will leave a memory that lasts a lifetime.
