It’s that time of year again – when Christmas inevitably sneaks up on you. Oh wait, nope…same day every year. But the procrastinators of the world (keep reading if that sounds like you – cause it’s definitely me) seem to find themselves year after year, trying to find gifts at the last minute.
Thanks to companies like Amazon with Prime shipping, last minute has become much more doable and less stress inducing – as long as you can remember to get your shopping done at least a week before Christmas. If you’re still OK driving around town to finish your gift list, then you have the chance to cut it a bit closer. For those last minute gifts that make you look like the unsung hero (and like you’ve been planning since October), read on my friend.
Whether you are shopping for a fellow business gal, a mom, or yourself, this list will get you going.

Need some more light in your life? If you’re anything like me, you spend a lot of time indoors, working at your desk, behind the computer. That’s no bueno for your light source and vitamin D supply.

Lady bosses gotta work – and most of the time that is at the computer. Before your eyes get totally shot from all of those late nights, get some blue light filtering glasses.

by Peloton – Price from $2,245
It’s the cult-like spin bike phenomenon that has swept home gyms everywhere. If you’re not convinced, you can visit a local showroom (if you live in a major city) and test ride one for yourself. They even offer a 30-day home trial. If it’s not for you, they’ll pick it up for free and give you a full refund. Don’t have the budget or have a spin bike already collecting dust at home? Try using just the app. You can get a subscription for just under $20 a month and they have way more than just bike and tread.
Let’s be honest, this list could go on and on. It’s hard to narrow down great gifts each year that aren’t all over the internet (who needs to see the same gift lists over and over?). What have you got on your list this year? Whatever it is, I hope it shows up in your stocking or under your tree by the end of 2019. Tell me, what are your favorite go to gifts for your fellow boss babes?
