Sometimes, you just need a few more items. That can be hard. Here are a few spots that I've found last minute gifts that I adore as much as the preplanned options. Many of these are female owned small businesses. And, they are in no particular order. 

Last Minute Gift Spots (and gift ideas, too!)

Sky Nursery (holiday ornaments, lovely accessories for gardens, bird feeders, plants, planters including a super cool macrame hanging plant holder)

re-souL (accessories including super cool socks, wallets, jewelry, handbags, shoe care stocking stuffers)

Vixen Day Spa and Boutique (jewelry, sweaters, candles, gift cards for locals, etc.) 

Living Social, Groupon, etc. (gift certificates for massages, facials, foot reflexology, etc.)

Sip and Ship (super cute things that no one really needs, but everyone enjoys). 

Prism (jewelry)

The Peace, Love and Happiness Club (plants, planters, jewelry, wacky gifts for kids, a little bit of everything)

Sonic Boom (give the gift of music)

Elliott Bay Books (books, books, books and all sorts of other unexpected surprises) 

World Wildlife Fund ("adopt" an animal as a gift for the holidays. This one is popular to or from kids) 


Which brings us to giving to nonprofits as a gift. Choose an organization your friend or loved one truly cares about and make it special. Donate in his/her/their name and be sure to share that in a card. 

Happy gifting!
