Feeling stretched this holiday season? Behind on Christmas shopping and activities? We could all use a helping hand this year. This list is for you if you still need gift ideas in time for Christmas!

If you don’t have time to shop, browse our list for top gift ideas!

In the whirlwind of setting up Christmas decorations, coming to grips with the fact that it’s almost the end of the year, baking holiday goodies, and booking trips to visit relatives, somehow, it’s already mid-December.  Many of us can’t even drink our coffee while it’s hot without reheating it four times, and yet, we’re supposed to have plenty of gifts for all the children, husband, and relatives in a matter of two weeks?! You’re likely wondering where the month has gone and I’d say it’s a good guess that most parents are right there with you.

All I can say is thank GOODNESS for Amazon Prime – orders ship fast and we don’t have to go from store to store! 

Be sure to also check our Original Gift Guide. It’ll have loads of last-minute gifts there that will ship in time too!

10 Holiday Gifts Your Kids Will Love

Some moms are super talented with crafts and can make a beautiful gift with just a few supplies. These are incredible and thoughtful! …But…that is definitely not my skill. I am, however, quite adept at Amazon searches, quality review audits, and online shopping as a whole. (And yes, my credit card bill can prove it, unfortunately.) Here are several last-minute online gifts that’ll still arrive by Christmas, if you order them now. You’re welcome!

10 Resources for Gift Shopping this Holiday Season 

Even when you have a few great gift ideas in mind, sometimes you still need a nudge in the right direction.  For example, perhaps you’re shopping for your child and while some of our listed gifts got close to being perfect, they won’t quite work for whatever reason.  Sometimes, you just need a good gift guide to give you the exact inspiration you need! Here are ten of our favorite resources for your last-minute gift shopping needs.

The holidays are a wonderful time for giving, encouragement, and sharing kindness.  It’s all about spending time together with our loved ones, teaching our children about the true meaning of the season, and reflecting.  It’s a time to reach out to friends and neighbors and extend compassion. With this list of resources and last-minute Amazon gift ideas, we hope you have even more time available for enjoying the holidays with your family and friends. 

From our home to yours, Happy Holidays!
