Gallery: 14 Last Minute Gifts for the Green Procrastinator

Were you so busy surfing the web for cool gift ideas that you totally forgot to do any actual shopping? If so, there's no need to fret because we've got you covered with a last-minute gift guide full of clever and imaginative presents that can be whipped up at the 11th hour. Check out all of our ideas - from a basket full of practical presents they're sure to appreciate to the ever-elusive gift of closet organization and this foolproof crowdpleaser.


It’s happened again – you have just a few hours left until your holiday gift exchange and you’re utterly present-less. Luckily, your local supermarket, drugstore or whatever else is still open can actually be a treasure trove of practical gifts that you can make into a festive “Stuff You Love” Bundle. Just load up on your giftee’s favorite things – snacks, craft beer, even that lotion they love but constantly run out of – and place them all in a nice box or basket. Added bonus? You know they’ll actually use everything in there as opposed to that Shake Weight you gave the last year.


You’ve probably admired fancy jars filled with ingredients like this at your local fine foods shop but making them yourself is a snap – and can be done at the last minute too. Check out our tutorial to see how here.


The gift of a pancake feast on Christmas Day is pretty obviously a last-minute gift but honestly, who cares when pancakes are involved?! All will be forgiven once the syrup is poured, or you can just easily chose to make it seem like you had this special feast planned out all along.


If you’re looking for a last minute gift that is pretty foolproof, we highly recommend a bag of booze. An Inhabitant brought this to our holiday White Elephant party last year and it was THE gift everyone wanted – just make sure that the recipient isn’t a teetotaler!
