12 Last-Minute Gift Ideas for Everyone on Your List

Perfect for Stocking Stuffers, Teacher Gifts and More

Want to really bring joy to the world (or at least your loved ones) this holiday season? Slip these last-minute gifts into your basket the next time you’re grocery shopping. They’re perfect for holiday stockings, teacher and host gifts, coworker gift exchanges and everything in between:

1. Feelgoodz Slippers

A hygge holiday begins with a supremely cozy pair of patterned slippers. As a perfect "around the house" pair, they’re handmade by Vietnamese weavers and lined with warming faux sherpa or a recycled poly blend.

2. Pacha Froth Bombs

Spike your tub with deliciously scented bath bombs that froth up and soothe skin, available in Gingerbread Man, Holly and Berries, and Winter Birch. For those who prefer showers, whipped scrubs in Peppermint Twist or Vanilla Butter do the trick.

3. PBS Kids Aurora Plush Toys and EverEarth Wooden Toys

Kids don’t need Wi-Fi to build a castle or play make-believe. Give them timeless handheld trucks, trains or other wooden toys — or an exceptionally cuddly lion, tiger or narwhal. (All PVC- and phthalate-free. Oh, my!)

4. Paddywax Sweet Salutation Scented Candles

There’s no more flattering light than the flicker of a hand-poured soy candle. In unique fragrances like Mistletoe and Mint (Cheers!), Juniper Citrus (Celebrate!), and Balsam and Fir (Kindred Spirits), these create a festive vibe. Bonus: When the wax melts away, use the chic, faceted vessel to hold anything from fresh blooms to pencils.

5. Trilogy Rosehip Hydrate and Nourish Gift Set

Frosty weather can turn once-radiant skin dull and dry, but this skin-care trio helps restore dewiness, stat. Cream Cleanser hones in on pores, Rosehip Oil Antioxidant+ can help protect against environmental damage, and Vital Moisturising Cream is like a tall drink of water for parched skin.

6. Banshee Sonoma County Pinot Noir

Ruby red with notes of red fruit and earthy florals, this superb pinot noir is ideal for sipping fireside while curled up with a good book — and of course, for picking up on the way to a party as a hostess gift.

7. Mineral Fusion Mini Nail Polish Kit

Nutmeg is the spice of the season, but variety is the spice of life. This six-pack of nail lacquer minis comes in runway shades like metallic copper (Pretty Penny), moody teal (Lagoon) and iridescent mauve (Cashmere). Even better, they’re vegan and not tested on animals.

8. Every Man Jack Sandalwood Body Kit

These products should really be labeled “Every Person Jack,” since the body wash, body lotion and aluminum-free deodorant all have the subtle scent of warm sandalwood — irresistible to men and women alike. Comes with a bonus toiletry bag.

9. Marquet Fair Trade Ornaments

Dress up the tree in ornaments that you can feel good about. These little animal pals, made from artisans in Thailand and Vietnam, are downright adorable — and handmade from recycled phonebooks, waste paper or cotton with poly fiber fill!

10. Boska Holland Cheese Tools

Selecting the right cheeses to serve at a party can seem daunting, but choosing the perfect knives are a breeze: a curved one for spreading, a pointed one for slicing, a perforated one that doesn’t stick and one with a pronged tip for skewering.

11. Paper Source Waste Not Paper Gift Wrap and Tags

Printed in beautifully curated color palettes meant for mixing and matching, these gift bags, tags and ribbons are a wrapper’s delight. They’re as smartly produced as they are chic, produced with renewable energy and 100% recycled materials.

12. Burt’s Bees Tin Ornament

‘Tis the season for chapped lips and rough mitts. Luckily, there are two skin-soothers tucked into each festive tin ornament: Burt's Bees Beeswax Hand Salve, plus a Lip Balm in Unflavored, Pomegranate, Coconut & Pear or Vanilla Bean.
