Best Last Minute Gift Guide | 2016

December 16, 2016

It's that time of year again where the days until Christmas start dwindling and panic levels start rising as we scramble to mark off everyone on our list! Since the order deadlines are coming up soon (as in today for some), I thought it would be the perfect time to share my seasonal "last minute" gift guide! Here are a few things from around the web that would make great gifts or perfectly picked stocking stuffers. Most items are under $30 (I believe only 2 or 3 exceed this) and many of these online retailers are having free shipping specials and end of the year sales.
