Time really flew! Can you believe Christmas is in two days?! This is perhaps my favorite holiday, and my family loves to celebrate it with good cheer. When I was younger, we used to decorate the house with lights, garlands, stockings, tinsels, wreaths…the whole works! But then as the years went by, we grew older and busier with our lives and the intensity of decorations dwindled down, but one thing that remained unchanged was our enthusiasm about gifts! I’ve had my fair share of procrastinating for presents, and I’ve since learned my lesson. These days, I like to start early with all the brainstorming and shopping and actually completed most of my gift list during the first week of December, but if you’re still scrambling about for last-minute gifts, here are some great (and speedy!) options to consider:
Amazon Prime Now: If you want something fast, this is your perfect shopping destination! It’s Amazon Prime…but better, because (depending on your location) you can have the option of two-hour and even one-hour delivery! Simply download the Prime Now app onto your phone and speedy delivery is at the touch of your fingers. New customers can get $10 off total purchase with free 2-hour delivery with code 10PRIMENOW at checkout.
Nordstrom: From gorgeously-wrapped Jo Malone gift sets to stunning unisex Larsson & Jennings watch, you can get something special for everyone on your list at Nordstrom! Tomorrow happens to be the last day for 2-day shipping, but you can easily purchase an item online and pick it up at your nearest Nordstrom (stock availability will vary)!
Asos: Get 2-day shipping for free when you spend over $140. Enter code EXPRESSUSA at checkout and your order will be delivered within 2 business days! (Pssst: this sweater and this skirt you see me wearing are both from Asos!)
Victoria’s Secret: This retailer may be known for its undergarment collections and supermodels, but its line of fragrances are also top notch. I’ve been using Bombshell for years, and I still get compliments on it. Victoria’s Secret is offering free 2-day shipping on orders over $100. Just use code SHIP2DAY at checkout, or pop into your nearest store.
Compartes Chocolate: If you’re in the LA area, swing by this chocolate heaven of a shop. With unique flavors and beautifully designed artisan chocolate bars, these make for the perfect stocking stuffer.
World Market: If you’re in search of unique, worldly gifts, World Market is your best bet. If you’re in need of the cutest wrapping paper or gift bags, World Market is also your best bet!
