We’re in the midst of holiday shopping and for those of us who are a little late to the game, scrambling and trying to find that perfect gift is no fun. Here are three last-minute gift ideas that will make it look like you’ve spent a lot of time and effort into getting the perfect gift, but with a click of a button can be under your tree in no time.
iCoffee Opus Single Serve Brewer
Most of us need a strong cup of coffee first thing in the morning and when you make a quick cup at home you tend to compromise on taste. But not with the Opus coffee maker! This single-serve machine has a proprietary SpinBrew™ technology that spins, stirs and brews right in your cup (compatible with K-Cup®, OneCup™, RealCup™ capsule, and all private label cups). This creates a flavor that tastes more like coffee from your favorite coffee shop, with a smooth consistency free of bitter aftertaste. You can order online from Bed, Bath & Beyond for $119 (plus free shipping).
World Vision Gift Catalog
The holiday season is about giving to those who are not as fortunate. This one-of-a-kind catalog allows you to purchase a gift for a loved one and have the proceeds to go those in need. For example, you can purchase a hand-crafted gift, such as this stunning Mango Wood Beaded bracelet. The price is $45 and most of that money will go to a community in need somewhere around the globe. $36 of this gift is tax-deductible, so you can a. give a unique holiday gift to a loved one, b. donate to help those who are less fortunate and c. get a tax-deduction – win-win-win!

Pure Peppermint Extract
I’m one of those people who love peppermint year-round, not just around the holidays. I use it mostly in hot cocoa, milkshakes and desserts but it can also be used in savory dishes, such as lamb and poultry. If you order it, or other Nielsen-Massey vanilla products by December 21st on Williams-Sonoma you can get the shipment before December 24th. I especially love their set of 3 world vanilla extracts (Tahitian, Mexican and Madagascar Bourbon). Perfect for foodies!
I was not compensated for this post. I received samples.
