It never fails. You’re stuck in the middle of a very busy week. There’s a big presentation due at work. Your kids need to be taken back and forth for what feels like at least a dozen activities. Your dog’s gotta go to the vet. Oh and you just remembered you need a gift for your mother’s/brother’s/best friend’s birthday/housewarming party.
You get the picture. You’re stretched too thin and inevitably something fell through the cracks until you remembered it at the last minute. Regardless of how slammed you are, you still don’t want to give someone a gift that feels like you picked it up at the last minute.
Giftbar to the rescue! Check out some of these last minute gift ideas… all under $50! If none of them meet your needs, a gift card to any of the featured merchants makes a great gift, too!
