Last-minute shopping tips

So, you have seven days left to shop... don't panic. That won't help. I've got some tips for you if you have a few last-minute items to pick up or if you haven't even purchased one gift yet. Also, last week I put together a holiday gift guide if you still need some inspiration. 

1. Amazon.com - Sign up for Amazon Prime (hint: if you've already used the 30-day trial on your current account, simply set up a new email account and register for a new amazon account to take advantage of another 30 days of the free trial.) That means FREE two-day shipping on almost all items on Amazon.

Here are some gift ideas from Amazon: Kindle Fire HD $139 // Crock-Pot with Locking Lid $44.99 // Canon Power Shot $68.99 // Despicable Me 2 Blu-Ray $19.99 // Tovolo Sphere Ice Molds Set of 2 $9.49

2. Bonobos - This great site has tons of menswear that's sure to make your dad, bro, boyfriend, or hubby happy. The have a great Man-Tastic Gift Guide full of cool ideas for those amazing men in your life. Plus, if you give them your email address you can get 20 percent off your first purchase and guaranteed free shipping before Christmas if you order today (Dec 17). 

Here are some of my favorite items available at Bonobos: Couch surfer sweatpants $88 // Home stretch belt $60 // Quilted Vest $128 // Rhodes Collar Oxford $88 // Touchy Wool Gloves $59

3. TJ Maxx, Marshall's or Home Goods - These stores are chock full of wonderful gifts like scarfs, hand bags, electronics, clothing, jewelry, furniture, perfume, toys, kitchen items and cookware, etc. You're sure to find beautiful items at a great price! I'm heading there this week to get a few more things on my list. 

4. Local boutiques and gift shops. There's nothing like finding a one-of-a-kind item at your local boutique and supporting a small business in the process. Just last week I visited Verde and found a beautiful scarf for only $24!  

Some of my favorite boutiques in Philadelphia, include: Verde, Latitudes and Longitudes, and The Little Apple

5. Shop online on December 18 and get free shipping and guaranteed delivery by Christmas Eve. Stores that have announced their participation this year include: Nordstrom, LL Bean, Overstock, REI, Harry and David, Jack Spade, Nasty Gal, Zappos and more.
