Last-Minute Gifts and Decor To Save The Day

Sharing is caring!


This post was sponsored by Amazon in partnership with Forward Influence. However, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

I’m absolutely a last-minute shopper and even though this holiday happens at the same time every year, I still find myself with a whole list of things still to do with only a few days to do them. I mean, it wouldn’t be the holidays without a little chaos, right? Is it in my blood or something, like some weird annual tradition that I just have to follow through with? <<shrug>> Who knows. I do know that even with my procrastination, I am saved with a little help from Amazon.

It might be more wrapping paper, or more tape, or a few gifts that slipped through the cracks. But whatever it is, Amazon comes through! It helps that Amazon has practically anything you could think of. But I wanted to highlight a few things that arrived in just two days with Amazon Prime that are saving me this holiday season and show you a few last-minute gift ideas (in case you need them)!

Wrapping paper and tape:

Always running out or discovering at the last minute that you threw out all of last year’s supplies? I have a wrapping paper problem because I am super picky. I’ve never been a huge fan of character or cartoon paper, but I also don’t want paper that is too generic or boring. But, I did fall in love with these designs so I had to get them! One of my wrapping tricks for when kids are little is to assign one wrapping paper design to each kid. On Christmas morning, they can sort their presents by the paper and not have to try and read gift tags. Well, now they can read, so I can use gift tags and choose paper that I love!

We don’t even have to talk about tape because everyone should have a secret stash of it with their craft supplies, in a closet, and with the holiday decorations. Just stash it everywhere you can because you are bound to use it year-round.

Last minute gift ideas:

No matter who you have to buy for, or what age they are, Amazon has something perfect for them. You can find games and toys, books, candles, home decor, auto gear, sports gear; it’s truly a lifesaver. A few of my favorite gifts that work for just about anyone are:

This gorgeous Buffalo Check Blanket from Stone & Beam. Oh it’s so soft!

These comfortable Slip-on Memory Foam Indoor Slippers. Warm, soft, and a simple design that work for anyone.

There are so many more ideas at so it’s worth checking it out and seeing what you find!

I just love that all season long, Amazon will be #DeliveringSmiles, so pay attention to all the happenings! Shopping with Amazon for your holiday needs, whether it’s gifts or decor, means free shipping for everyone (no minimum purchase amount) through December 18 on orders arriving in time for Christmas! It also means no crowds, no snowy roads to drive, and my favorite part – shopping from wish lists you’ve been creating all year long!

How do you plan to use Amazon this year?
