The Greatest Last-Minute Gifts of All Time

Shopping for your nearest and dearest isn’t exactly a one-size-fits-all experience. Lucky for you, we make it our job to do the thinking, scouring, crowdsourcing, organizing, vetting, heavy lifting, and last-minute panicking for you. Plus, with gifts this gasp-worthy and ideas that considerate, no one will care you nabbed them at the eleventh hour.

Here, seventy-one failproof ways to fill in the “I don’t know what to get ___” blank.

FOR THE PARENTS (OR STEPPARENTS, OR
IN-LAWS…)

Checking in on Sundays. Embarrassing you in front of your friends. Cracking corny jokes at the dinner table. Giving you all the advice. Parents are the best. Here are some thoughtful ways to bring them a little end-of-year cheer.

FOR THE SIBLINGS

A good rule of thumb: If you’re into it, chances are they will be, too. Fortunately, these Teflon-free kitchen tools, 2020-appropriate sweats, and game-changing gadgets (because little brothers) are as useful as they are universally pleasing.

FOR THE YOUTH

Are they small? Do they enjoy fun? Will they look achingly cute in a teensy matching terry set? Well then, you’ve come to the right place.

FOR YOUR PARTNER IN CRIME

Sometimes the people you know best can arguably be the hardest to shop for. But then again, there’s no going wrong with silky-soft pajamas, cashmere socks, and anything that comes in a little red box.

FOR YOUR CLOSEST CONFIDANTES

From a DIY sushi-rolling kit to our just-launched GOOPGENES Clean Nourishing Lip Balm (and we’re going to go ahead and give Gucci’s chocolate-strewn panettone a hard yes), these playful presents surprise and delight.

FOR OTHERS

Giving back is something that feels especially pertinent this year. So we put together a few of our favorite organizations, big and small, that are fighting the good fight, making a difference in people’s lives, and doing their part in preserving the health of our planet.
