Radio Thursday – Last Minute Gift Ideas

Have you forgotten someone on your list?  Procrastinated?  Don’t worry, there are some great gifts that you can get today…so grab your keys and go!

I found these great rubber strapped bracelet style watches at Target.  They come in bunches of great colors – and even white.  They remind me of the chunky watches that you see the ladies on the Real Housewives wearing…only at a fraction of the price – $12.99

Everyone loves a Starbuck’s card.  But why not take it one step farther and bring Starbuck’s into someone’s home?  This great looking wooden box holds 24 servings of the new Starbuck’s Via instant coffee.  You simply pick your flavor out of the box, put it into your mug, and add hot water.  Simple + great looking.  $29.95.  You can buy it at any Starbuck’s location.

Big chunky rings are all the rage…this one has an added bonus – open it up to reveal Michael Kors solid perfume.  Who doesn’t need a little aroma touch up throughout the day?  Head to Sephora to pick up this little gem (get it…gem?)  $40

Heading to a party and need a hostess gift?  I love this little Mini Margarita To Go set from Target.  For only $5 you get 5 flavors of miniature margarita mix – grapefruit, strawberry, classic, mango, and pomegranate.  Pair it with some miniature bottles of tequila or a great salsa and you will be sure to be invited back next year!

  • Table Topics Conversation starters. I love these boxes of questions. Our family loves to take turns answering these thought provoking cards. The cubes contain cards in one of 8 themed boxes. I love the Girls Night Out box….it can get pretty funny when paired with a glass of wine! You can also choose from Original, Family, Teen, Couples, Spirit, Book Club, and Gourmet. Each box retails for $25.00. They come in an acrylic cube that looks great on your coffee table. The Topics To Go are great for stocking stuffers. Each $9.00 Box is a mini travel version of the original cubes. You can search for a store in your area here. They are available at many stores around the Atlanta area including  Paper Affair.


One of the coolest gives you can give is a Tervis Tumbler.  Tervis Tumbler’s are double insulated plastic tumblers that come in a variety of sizes & styles. From initials & flipflops to your favorite football team.  They are guaranteed for life, maintain hot or cold temperatures, and have virtually no condensation on your drink (no ruined coffee table).  I love my Tervis Tumbler.  You can buy lids & straws to make them completely spill proof and portable.  You can find them at Bed Bath & Beyond and Swoozies. The prices vary depending on the size you are buying.


Did you forget about the stocking stuffers?  Don’t worry…head to Cracker Barrel.  Yes, the restaurant.  You can fill a stocking in no time!  From nostalgic candy to great little games.  Some of my favorites include the pocket Etch-a-Sketch, the classic peg game, jumbo jacks, and of course…the potato gun.
