You’re making a list and checking it twice! You’ve found out you’re naughty and not nice—because there are still a few people you can’t think of a gift for and then there’s someone you just plain forgot! You’ve already blown your budget. Remain calm and shop on.
1. Consider making a gift
I know, it sounds crazy, but Pinterest is full of ideas that honestly don’t look that complicated. The fact that they have several boards dedicated to last minute ideas you make yourself is evidence that you are not alone. And, they have several pins on what to grab from the Dollar Store. You can do it!

b. Make a personal playlist: How meaningful to put together a list of songs you have shared together and/or songs that put your feelings into words!

Marie Claire has even more ideas, see which ones will work!
