Last-Minute Holiday Shopping

Last-Minute Holiday Shopping

December 12, 2019

We all procrastinate, even if it's just a little. So you're searching for a gift that’s guaranteed to make it here before Christmas? Don’t worry! There are tons of retailers offering guaranteed delivery by Christmas Eve. We’ve compiled a list of our favorite retailers below! 

In this image, Adaleta has her jewelry box opened on a cozy blanket. The image shows various different lip colors from Nars, Buxom and Sephora, and various pieces from Kristin Ash. This piece from Kristin Ash is a part of the Olive Cooke collaboration.

Check out these gifts that are sure to arrive before Christmas! 


Amazon is old faithful to us all because we know and love Prime. If you’re finding yourself really pushing the limits, check out same-day delivery. There are always hundreds of gift options on Amazon because if you've thought about it, you can usually find it on there. More likely than not, it will also have the option for Prime Shipping which ensures your package will get here on time.

Realistically anything from Apple from Apple is sure to put a huge smile on someone's face. They are able to deliver items that are in stock within two days! Items that are engraved or shipped to Hawaii, Alaska and Puerto Rico will take a little longer, 2-5 business days.

Bloomingdale’s has a ton of our favorite luxe brands, if you're looking for something extra special for someone you really love (is Aaron reading this!?) Complete your order by 11:59 ET on the 21st in order to get it by Christmas Eve. 

Forever21 is giving us free express shipping on orders of $75+ with code EXPSHIP. This could make or break your last minute gift ideas, so take advantage. They're also having some major sales on gifts and sweaters so it's a great place to go for stocking stuffers.

Lululemon is always a good idea. When life hands you lemons, hope they're Lulu's! Lots of gift options available, and there's something made for almost every workout. The align leggings are some of my favorites, but I also love the Wanderunders! Be sure to order by 10pm PST on December 22nd to get it by Christmas Eve. 

Madewell allows you to sign up as an Insider to get free expedited shipping. There's some cute jewelry that I've had my eyes on, and everything is so well made (no pun intended!) One of my favorite sweaters is from them and it has kept me warm for over 6 years.

Nike is a good gift for men and women. Women will rock them on errands with comfy attire, or to the gym. Men will rock them everywhere, and they're so comfortable. Aaron rocks his all over town. Nike has a ton of athletic wear and a variety of shipping options, so you can procrastinate as late as 4 PM on the 21st. 

Nordstrom is everyone's favorite holiday shop. Lucky for us they are giving free delivery by Christmas Eve if you order by noon ET on December 22nd. (Certain items are ineligible.) See shipping deadlines. I love shopping from Nordstrom because they have options at all price points and they make returns easy and efficient! 

Sephora is every makeup lover's dream. If you love them as much as we do, you may want to check out the Flash 2-day shipping program. It’s just $15 a year, and it gets you unlimited 2-day free shipping. There’s not a minimum purchase requirement. Not to mention, they're giving $15-$25 off your purchase of $75 or more. Stack those dollars when you can!
