7 Last-Minute Holiday Gifts For Kids That Give All Year Long

7 Last-Minute Holiday Gift Ideas that Give All Year Long

The countdown has begun! There are only 10 days left before Christmas and, if you’re anything like me, still have gifts to buy for those loved little ones on your list. Last year you swore you wouldn’t let this happen to you, but here we are again, scrambling to get something that’s meaningful enough and doesn’t scream of your disorganization when it comes to gift-giving.

Or perhaps you do have it together and just need some more ideas for next year or anytime-of-the-year gifts.

Then this last-minute guide of gifts that give all year is perfect for you!

I found these seven subscription gifts that will have you giving all year! Forget the fact they’re last-minute, no one will ever know or care since they will feel your love all year long.

A quick tip, since most of these take about 4 weeks to arrive, you should print out a copy of a picture of the gift and send it via email on a cute ecard or via mail with a personalized card telling them their gift is on its way.
