Last Minute Gifts

You have waited until the last minute to order an important gift and so now you are in a panic. Did someone’s special occasion slip your mind until today? What about those last minute birthday gifts or a last minute wedding gift? So what should do? One thing is for sure, last minute gifts need to look anything but last minute. Fortunately in this age of online shopping and expedited shipping options there is no shortage of companies willing to step up to meet the challenge. Now you have a lot more options available to you than even just a few years ago. You can choose from the traditional floral gift, personalized gifts, balloons, gift baskets, wine gifts, fruit and much more.

Many online retailers now even offer same day delivery of a limited selection of hand delivered gifts through a controlled network of high quality florists, gifts shops and liquor stores. Gifts available for same day delivery include wine gifts, gourmet gift baskets, candy, flowers, fruit gifts and balloon bouquets. Most participating retailers accept orders until 2:00 pm within the recipients’ time zone for same day gift delivery in the United States and Canada. Imagine ordering a gift at 5:30 in the afternoon in New York and still getting it delivered that same day in California. You can even have gifts delivered the same day in Hawaii and Alaska. Now that is service even in this day of instant gratification. With prices for balloon gifts starting at under $30 and fruit baskets starting at less than $50, last minute gifts are also affordable.

If you have just a few more days before your occasion, the last minute gift choices are almost unlimited. For example you can order a personalized gift, select rush handling and expedited shipping and receive your gift the next day. Rarely can home-town engravers work so fast. What is more impressive is that the collection of custom gifts available is extensive including:

  • personalized jewelry
  • personalized mugs
  • personalized glassware and barware
  • personalized tools and gadgets
  • personalized boxes and keepsakes
  • personalized flasks
  • personalized wedding and anniversary gifts

When you send a personalized gift, no one will suspect that it was last minute. A personalized gift with a monogram or engraved message is perfect for the bride, bridesmaid, groom or groomsmen. Select initialed lockets for the bridesmaids and a shoeshine kit for groomsmen, or keep it simple and order black leather koozies for the guys and pink leather koozies for the gals.That is equal opportunity!

Did you forget your anniversary or your wife’s birthday? Send your wife an engraved heart shaped box with an initial charm bracelet. She will be thrilled and assume you planned her gift for weeks instead of the day before.
