Last-Minute-Santa Gifts

Friday, December 23, 2011


From last-minute gift cards to grabs for everyone on your list.

We know. It's Friday. You're desperate. Here are quick, last-minute grabs that will make them think you shopped weeks ago. We lined them up at Providence Place to allow you to park that sleigh just once and emerge victorious.

For mom

Give her a day of shopping with you, because that's really what she wants. Providence Place makes it easy with a gift card kiosk that's ready when you are (we told you this was Last-Minute Santa). In just a few minutes, a few clicks, and a swipe of your credit card, you've got a Mall card good everywhere they take American Express… and a date that she's going to treasure. If she's a homebody

and a holiday fiend, grab her a festive holiday candle from Yankee Candle. Pair a Cherries Snow candle with their Rustic Reindeer collection (starting at $9.99) for a holiday home run.

For sisters & girlfriends & wives

Not only will this gift make her smile this time, but it sets up a regular gift that you can just add to (and not fret over) for years to come. It's Pandora's charm bracelet, and you can start it up for her with a holiday theme and add to it with all manner of themed charms on every special occasion. Check out this year's limited edition Midnight Heart Charm ($90). Other individual charms start at $25, sets of 3 charms for adding on run from $100.

She love clothes? Hit The Limited and grab her some brightly colored winter styles at reasonable prices. What woman wouldn't love a sparkly, sequin tank ($44.90) or richly hued kimono-sleeved sweater ($59.90)?

Another great buy for any woman in your life is something fun from the cosmetic counter. If she's got a playful side, she'll love Sephora's Hello Kitty Collectible Brush Set, which channels her inner girl by popping a set of 5 cosmetic brushes in a perky silver Hello Kitty carrier ($49).

For dads & brothers & husbands

If they're like most of the men we know, they always need a dress shirt. And they hate to iron and forget to take things to the cleaners. Make it something that will always look good with a non-iron dress shirt from Brooks Brothers ($88). If he's a sports nut, don't miss the amazing local sports paraphernalia from Sports and More. The collection, particularly of autographed photographs of all his favorite athletes, is incredible. You can't go wrong.
