Last Minutes Gifts We're Loving: Hostess Presents from HomeGoods

‘Twas the night before Christmas … when you realize that you spaced and completely forgot someone on your holiday shopping list. Yes, it’s way too late to order something online, but that doesn’t mean you have to hand over an IOU (lame) or a half-used iTunes gift card you found in your wallet (lamer). Because one of our go-to gift stores is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. today. HomeGoods, the décor-oriented sister store of TJ Maxx and Marshalls, is stocked with pretty trays (like the metallic croc-print one at left), centerpieces, luxe faux fur throws, frames and just about every other item anyone with a house or an apartment or an office could want. (At least two PeopleStyleWatch.com editors furnished and decorated their apartments almost solely with HomeGoods finds.) Plus, just like TJ Maxx and Marshalls, everything is steeply discounted, meaning your gift will look way pricier than it really was. And really, isn’t that the most important characteristic in a gift? Find the nearest HomeGoods store here.

So if you’ve officially run out of time to grab gifts for the stylish ladies in your life, we have one more idea for you: a Birchbox subscription. The company offers monthly deliveries of beauty boxes, packed with samples of makeup, skincare products and more from top brands like Kiehl’s, Stila and Smashbox. (Related: See the best personalized holiday gifts.) If they like what they see, recipients can return to Birchbox.com to purchase larger sizes of the goodies they love. The service is $10 per month (or $30 for three months, $60 for six and $110 for 12 months), making it a gift that lasts all year long — and making it okay for you to just give the receiver a card this holiday season. The company recently launched Birchbox Man, too, which offers a taste of the newest lifestyle and grooming products for guys for $20 monthly. Still in need of last-minute ideas?

We’ve already shown you some awesome finds for gadget lovers, but here’s something else that’ll charm the techies in your life — and those pop culture-obsessed friends, too. It’s the new SiNG Party for Nintendo Wii U, a video game that comes with a microphone (dangerous/amazing) and is stocked with songs from the 1960s to today (“Call Me Maybe,” anyone?). The game has a one-player mode, letting you sing along to your favorite hits, and also has a team mode, so you can pretend you’re singing for your life on the X Factor or a similar competition show. Even better, the game has cues for backup singing and dancing, making it truly interactive — and fun for all your party-ready pals. SiNG Party retails for $59.99 at Target, Best Buy and other electronics stores. Excuse us while we go warm up now! Find more great gift ideas for friends in our holiday gift guides.

Holiday Gift We're Loving: 'Style Me Pretty Weddings' Book

Style Me Pretty BookClarkson Potter/Publishers

If you’re not familiar with Style Me Pretty, well, you’re missing out; it’s basically porn for women obsessed with weddings, fashion and all things beautiful (a.k.a. all of us here at StyleWatch). So when we found out the site’s founder, Abby Larson, was launching a book, Style Me Pretty Weddings, well let’s just say there was a lot of excitement in the office. Larson’s tome offers up gorgeous photos of real weddings, plus wedding planning tips and DIY ideas — basically, it’s a perfect gift for the brides-to-be in your life (as are these pretty presents). “Brides have more inspiration and eye candy than ever these days,” Larson tells PEOPLE. “This book teaches brides how to consume that eye candy in a thoughtful way, to break it down, piece it apart and turn those ideas and inspirations into something real for their own big day.” The book hits shelves Tuesday, but you can pre-order it here now. And find more glam gift ideas for your girlfriends in our holiday gift guides!
