Oh, No! The Very Last-Minute Gift Guide

If you are still checking off that holiday shopping list (or worse, have yet to start), don't worry — you are not alone. After all, what would the holiday season be like without some frantic, last-minute shopping? But stress not — we tapped SwearBy's expert editors to see what they'll be buying this week. From fleece-lined socks to a Milk Bar pie, these presents will be sure to delight, no matter the recipient.

Serpent Stud

“These unique studs are sure to please any jewelry fan on your list. You can mix and match individual studs or purchase a matching set. They’re simple, fun, and basically guaranteed to collect compliments.” — Christie Calucchia 

Ugg Pompom Fleece Lined Socks

“With my friends and family spending so much time at home this winter due to Coronavirus, my holiday shopping list has been full of cozy items that will make their quarantine much more comfortable. These cute Ugg socks are on the list because they’re not only super soft and comfy, but they are also fully lined with a fuzzy fleece material that will keep your feet warm and toasty. Plus, they feature cute pom-pom accents for a stylish touch.” — Rebecca Carhart 

Bean Box - Gourmet Coffee Sampler

“For a last-minute gift that doesn’t feel last minute, I love a gift box filled with artisan goods. This coffee sampler includes four gourmet coffees so it feels luxe but only costs $28. It’s a thoughtful way to gift your friends or family members something unique they’ll actually want to use. Plus, it supports small-batch roasters in Seattle.” — Stephanie Perry

Compartés Gourmet Chocolate Bar

“When I’m *really* rushing to send a gift, I default to a thoughtful note and sweet treat. Compartés’ bars are a favorite to give because they’re edible works of art. Handcrafted in Los Angeles, the milk, white, and dark chocolate bars come in unique flavors like Cinnamon Toast, Donuts and Coffee, and (my favorite) Cookies and Cream. And with their gorgeous packaging, they barely even need a bow.” — Katie Macdonald 

Milk Bar® Pie

“There is no such thing as a last-minute gift when it comes to food. Especially when it’s this too-good-it’s-confusing pie from Milk Bar. It makes the perfect thoughtful gift you can send directly to someone on your list to enjoy as soon as they get it. Since the holiday season is for eating, any belated gifts will be immediately forgiven after one bite of this pie. I promise.” — Jayla Andrulonis 

Levain Bakery Signature Cookie Assortment

“Whenever my family and friends visit me in New York, I make sure to take them to Levain Bakery for its thick, gooey, soft, and utterly scrumptious cookies. These desserts are legendary at this point and always a crowd-pleaser. With Levain now offering mail-order gift boxes that feature an assortment of their freshly baked cookies, they’ve become my go-to choice for last-minute presents. I’ve always gotten rave reviews from those I send these cookies to, and it’s no wonder — I mean, who wouldn’t love to receive a box of delicious cookies?” — Nina Huang
