The slacker's Christmas guide
Many stores have gift cards online that you can order and send directly to the recipient via email. And these days, grocery stores often sell gift cards to various local shops and restaurants. If all else fails, you can get gift cards for gas at a gas station, many of which are open through the holidays.
A batch of cookies, a fresh pie, or even a coffee mug with a package of coffee makes a quick and easy gift. Craft stores sell cute, easily paintable wood blocks that will last a lifetime. Let your creative juices flow.
Get something for the dog or cat
Many pet owners love it when friends buy gifts for their pets. It shows you care not just for them, but about their furry friends.
You many not think of them having the most high-end gifts, but many sell popular perfume, great makeup, and kids' toys.
You can order online subscriptions for services like Netflix, magazines, Amazon Prime membership and fresh fruit and vegetable delivery.
Take someone to the movies
Movies are a great holiday tradition. So, take a friend or family member on Christmas Day to that movie they've been wanting to see. Splurge on the popcorn and candy, too.
Clean a house
Who wouldn’t love to have someone else do their cleaning for them? Either hire someone or do the job yourself and do deep cleaning of your friend’s or relative's house. There's nothing like coming home to a clean house.
Did you take a great photo this year? Get it enlarged and framed, and you have a gift within minutes. Be creative and make a collage if you have multiple photos.
You can't go wrong with coffee. Even Santa needs coffee to stay up all night long and deliver presents.
If you have a friend or family member with an upcoming birthday, wait until after the holidays, hit up the sales and combine gifts for a much better one!
