Gift Guide: Last-Minute Gift Ideas

Are you still scrambling for a last-minute gift for your friends and family? Subscription boxes are a great way to send a personalized gift to your loved ones based on their interest. I wanted to highlight a few different options you may not have considered.

sephora play subscription box last minute holiday gifts

For the beauty lover: Play! by Sephora or Oui Fresh Beauty Box

I’ve highlighted these beauty boxes before, but I still think these are a great last-minute gift for your friends. The Play! by Sephora box is not only affordable but filled with your favorite brands you know and love from Sephora. Another unique beauty box is the Oui Fresh subscription that is perfect for friends who buy clean/non-toxic beauty products. Each month their subscribers receive 5-7 products (the December box has 2 full-size products!) that you can try out and add to your beauty routine. This is a great way to also introduce green beauty products to your friends too!
Play! by Sephora: $10/month
Oui Fresh Beauty Box: $19.99/month

We love HelloFresh in our home, and I think this would be a great gift for any home cook that is looking to expand their repertoire or a friend who is interested in learning how to cook. Their weekly boxes include a variety of recipes you can choose from, and each box comes with a really easy to follow recipe card that you can save and use again later to recreate the dish on your own.
