18 Brilliant Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas + Discount Codes!

It never fails that I forget someone on my Christmas list. I do make a list {in my planner}, but for some reason, I always think I’m done, and then I realize there’s a name sitting there, without a check mark or gift information.

18 Brilliant Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas + Discount Codes!

Since I don’t want to be a Scrooge, I always scramble to find something…or I have for the past few years. This year I got smart and did an online subscription box that I could print out, put in a card, and hand to them.

Who doesn’t want fun stuff all year (or for a few months at least!)? The only catch is that you have to know  your audience-at least well enough to wade through the numerous awesome boxes that are out there for the picking.

Here are my top picks for last minute Christmas gift ideas (in no particular order):

Stitch Fix

You’ve seen the ads, you’ve read reviews…who wouldn’t love to have a personal stylist?! Stitch Fix is an awesome service that sends a box of clothing each month based upon the preferences, price point, and style of the subscriber. The best part is that you get to try everything on…and you only keep what you love. That’s what I call a major win!

Because of it’s nature, it’s probably smarter to get a Stitch Fix gift card, rather than a subscription.

Craft Beer Club

If you know someone who has an obsession with craft beers, then you absolutely need to enroll them in the Craft Beer Club. Seriously. Y’all. It’s 12 craft beers delivered to their door every month as long as they have a membership. Which is pretty awesome. And, if you use the code ‘iSave10’ you’ll get $10.00 off a 3-month membership, or $25.00 off a 12-month membership.

What last minute Christmas shopping?

Taste Trunk

If you have someone who loves gourmet food (or beverages) on your list, then you have to check out Taste Trunk. They have specialty boxes that include both his and hers, a DIY gin kit, and a mixologist kit, in addition to their monthly subscription offer.

The Honest Company

Every new mom needs baby stuff. Every.Single.One. Whether it’s disposable diapers, baby wash, shampoo, hand sanitizer, dish soap…The Honest Company does a great job of providing healthy and safe products for families, and a subscription would make any mom’s Christmas (especially mine…hint, hint!). Use the following codes to save some money:

  • Get 20% off a $50.00 order with code COZY20
  • Get 30% off a $75.00 order with code COZY30
  • Get 40% off a $100.00 order with code COZY40

Bean Box

I’m not a huge coffee drinker (I know, I know. My Starbucks Instagram pictures say otherwise-but really I’m not!), but my mother and Ish are. For that matter, so are a lot of other people out there!

Bean Box delivers coffee from Seattle’s top roasters directly to your gift’s front door. I think that for someone who is a total coffee addict, this would be perfect.

Green Kid Crafts

This is a box that we got last year, and both Smalls and I loved it. It includes sustainable, green, and environmentally friendly craft supplies with directions and extra ideas. I loved the boxes that we got from Green Kid Crafts, and so did Smalls.


Urthbox offers monthly deliveries of healthy, delicious snacks. They cater to special diets, providing both vegan and gluten free boxes, as well as multiple size options. The two Urthboxes that I’ve received both had high-quality products that were worth well over the monthly subscription cost. If you want to order, you can get $10.00 off your first box when you use this link.

Coffee Club

Coffee Club uses sustainable sourced coffees and fair trade farms to fill their boxes. If you have a coffee lover in your life, you should check it out!

Sock Fancy

I can’t be the only one obsessed with fun, quality socks, right? I love the idea of giving a year’s worth of socks to someone on your list…maybe that’s because our stockings are traditionally socks and underwear….

Either way, Sock Fancy would be great for that one person on your list who doesn’t really want or need anything. Everyone needs socks. And these are really, really cute socks.

Bramble Box

If you have any kids on your list, any at all, then you need to look at Bramble Box! It’s a subscription box that is all about creative, open-ended play. What kid wouldn’t love to get a surprise in the mail every month that is designed for them to play with? I can’t think of one.

Believe me when I say their mom will be texting you thank you notes for the foreseeable future. And, you can get 40% off a Bramble Box subscription when you use this link.

Candy Club

I know this is a healthy blog (mostly), but I couldn’t leave this one out. Everyone knows someone that believes in the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup (please tell me you got that reference!). For that special person in your life, Candy Club will deliver specialty candies directly to their door. Seriously.

And, when you use this link, you’ll get $10.00 off your order.

Try The World

I love trying different cuisines, and Try The World delivers a different taste experience to your doorstep each month. I wouldn’t recommend this box for anyone with food sensitivities, but for those who long for travel, this would make a truly thoughtful gift.

Glossy Box

For the make up addicts out there, Glossy Box is the perfect gift. Although it’s not a subscription box I’ve tried, it seems that the value is quite a bit higher than other similar boxes out there.


If you know someone who is serious about prepping, they will love BattlBox. It’s stocked with survival gear, and is delivered monthly. But don’t take my word for it!

Lip Monthly

If you have a make up obsessed friend who already has Birchbox, Julep, and the others, try Lip Monthly. Each month, they deliver four lip products, and it's only $10.00 a month. But, when you use my link, you'll get $5.00 off your first month.

Cooper & Kid

I had a really hard time figuring out what to get Ish this Christmas. In fact, I just got his gift figured out. He's getting a subscription to Cooper & Kid, a monthly box designed to give dads and their kids an activity to do together. Use this link to save $10.00 off your first box.

Smalls is going to flip when he finds out that he gets to do a daddy day and build a contraption every month!

Love With Food

This is one subscription box that I absolutely adore. Okay, it's not so much the box as what's in the box. Love With Food has awesome monthly boxes that cater to a number of food allergies and sensitivities. It's like giving a food hug each month.

My favorite thing is that there are so many different option to choose from. This is one gift you should give to your giftee and yourself.

Little Passports

This is actually one that I put on Smalls' Christmas list for him. I love that each suitcase (yes, it actually comes in a suitcase!) includes information and facts about a different part of the world, encouraging exploration, learning, and fun. Little Passports includes a wealth of information, activities, and more all centered around a different country each month. If you're homeschooling, you are going to love this.

Which subscription box ended up on your last minute Christmas gift list?
