So you’ve procrastinated long enough. Christmas is less than a week away and you still haven’t shopped for everyone on your list (your list can also include you). Here are ten gifts they (or you) will love that you can still get in time for Christmas.

For the Gemophile

Who doesn’t love beautiful jewelry? Lately, Baublebar has been dropping some gems and this 18-karat gold vermeil zodiac necklace with mother-of-pearl inlay is so eye-catching.

For the Stylemaker

If she’s been a fashionista for at least a decade, she’s going to love this. The iconic M.A.B. from Rebecca Minkoff just got an upgrade. The stylish yet practical bag just got an upgrade. Slightly larger than the original it will hold everything she needs to get her through the day, night, and yes—even the morning after all the while looking chic. Right now, it’s over 50% off and available in several colors, so order by 12/20 to get it under the tree right in time for Christmas.

For the Technophile

This gift is for the person on your list who loves a good tech gadget to keep their life organized. Although this can technically be considered two gifts, you really can’t have one without the other. Honestly, I don’t know how I live without these.

For the Bibliolater

We must protect Danielle Prescod at all costs. Ms. Prescod has been putting us on since her Ok Cupid twitter commentary (real ones know about that) from I want to say almost a decade ago. Well guess what, she’s given us a book and we should be eternally grateful. Personally, I find this book extremely relatable as it tells the often familiar reality of the middle to upper-middle class black girl navigating a  “career in beauty and fashion—the eye of the racist and sexist beauty standard storm.” Whether you are black woman or not, this book will command your attention and you will either feel seen perhaps for the first time, or gain insight as to how white supremacy can deeply affect us and how looking inward to understand the root of our  insecurities can really be uplifting. I cannot wait to finish this book and give you a thorough review. 20/10 recommend.

For the CognoScenti

You know that one friend that just always smells amazing? This is the perfect fragrance set for them or you). These two scents by Maison Margiela Replica are  two of their best-selling fragrances. Beach Walk invokes fresh summer beach days while By the Fireplace envelopes you in warm and cozy spice.

For the Classic Man

Let’s be honest, most men are probably using the same wallet they received as a gift from their college graduation. It’s time for an upgrade. You can’t go wrong with a classic, understated billfold and for that why not turn to the classic man himself Ralph Lauren.

For the Self-Care Queen

Who doesn’t love a luxuriating bathing experience. I have raved about Nichole Avonie  so much over the past two years and with good reason. This body duo are two of my favorite products that I reach for over and over again. The exfoliating cleanser gently buffs away dry skin while the body elixir seals moisture which is key for this time of year. In the words of founder Christene Carr “Don’t be ashy!”

For the Beauty Maven

If you’re bestie is hoping to lock lips under the mistletoe with their crush, be a good friend and give them the gift of soft lips. This limited-edition lip oil set from Ami Colé. The formula we’ve grown to love over the past year now comes in two additional shades—Reflection (a versatile clear) and Bliss (a subtle pink) in additional to their original Excellence (a rosy-brown).

For the Hostess

So you have a friend that loves to cook and entertain. She/he probably has all of the latest cooking gadgets and can set a table that would make my mother shed a tear of pride (and trust me that’s a hard thing to do). Luckily for you it’s that time of year again and Our Place is having their end of year sale on their best-selling Always Pan for $99. I own two of these and I can truly say it is as if I don’t have any other cookware. This 8-in-1 pan does just about everything. Oven safe and in beautiful shades to compliment your tableware.
