I’m going to cut to the chase, because clearly you’re on a time crunch. Here is my straight forward guide to help you purchase that last minute gift without having her (or him) be privy to it. Don’t beat yourself up, Christmas really snuck up on us this year. Plus, these gifts are still thoughtful, because you took the time to do this research. And at the end of the day, it really is the thought that counts.

An Experience.

This is the ultimate last-minute gift. Whether it’s concert or theater tickets, a massage gift certificate or a facial, or a trip to the Bahamas to swim with pigs — the experience gift is really your only option if you’re reading this on Christmas morning in a cold sweat. Travelzoo is a great place to get some inspiration and the best deal, just filter by your city. And please, please. Do not purchase a groupon. There are always a million restrictions and it just feels less special. I want you to get a deal, I just don’t want her to know you got one, ya read me?

If you live in LA, Kalologie Spa is offering $100 for you if you purchase a $100 gift card as a gift! It’s my go-to place for facials, but they’ve got a treatment for everyone and a posh garden sitting area while you wait.

Another great LA deal: Soceity Salon offers a 3 blowout package for $99.

Beauty Gadgets.

Is your girl constantly in a face mask? Get her the Foreo UFO intelligent mask applicator. Always going on about aging sun-damaged skin? The Trophy Skin LED lamp will make her giddy. Your girl always complaining about blow drying her hair? Step up her blowout game with the Dyson dryer. Or how about a desert rain shower head or Theragun you’ll both enjoy?! Beauty gadgets are the things we don’t usually splurge on for ourselves, but are so excited to get and use! Gifts that keep on giving. 😉

Subscription Service.

Is she always complaining that she has nothing to wear? Get her a one month subscription to Rent the Runway for half off with code CHELSEA50. Or get $100 off an unlimited subscription by clicking here . Rent the Runway is a rotating closet with clothes and accessories for every taste and every occassion from weddings to office wear.

Another clothes subscription I looove is FashionPass. It skews a little younger – and hipper. Use code CHELSEA3K for $35 off a one month trial.

Perhaps your girl is a makeup guru? Get her a BoxyCharm subscription! Five full sized lux beauty products (value over $185) for $21/mo, cancel anytime!   Follow this link to sign up + receive a free gift in your first box

For The Home.

Is she boho? How about a cool macrame? Does she loathe cleaning? A roomba. Still making rice on the stovetop? Change her life with an instant pot.
