We’ve all been there. Christmas just passed, you’re worn out…no, exhausted. Some may still even have a family Christmas or 2 to go to – not to mention New Years. The last thing you want to think about is that one gift you still have yet to get. Well, we feel your pain and we are here to help!
A gem or mineral may be just the thing. Here are some last minute gift ideas for those special people in your life.
For a Sweetheart
When all else fails, get chocolate. No one ever complained about a delicious blend of dark cocoa bean and cherries greeting them in their stocking on Christmas morning. Chocolate is the elegant candy and an easy pick up for last minute gifts.
For Your Love
Nothing says ‘I love you’ like a heart. Quartz, amethyst, crystal, pyrite—hearts come in all minerals and sizes! From the rugged, majestic purple of amethyst to the modern, metallic look of pyrite, a gem or mineral heart is truly something special. This last minute gift idea will look beautiful on a nightstand or an end table; a constant reminder to the special person in your life of how much you love them.
For the Intellectual
How will your loved one keep their Aristotle, Shakespeare, and Hemingway stylishly upright on the book shelf in the new year? Bookends, that’s how! Letters and animals are classic designs for bookends, but gems and minerals are also fantastic options which lend a raw, natural element to rooms where they reside.
For Travelers, Mystics, and Rockhounds
The amethyst stone has many purposes, and design is only one of them. Rock collectors and interior design enthusiasts will love the energy amethyst brings to a room, but it does more than simply look pretty.
For those who appreciate a deeper meaning, amethyst works as a calming stone promoting happiness and peace. It is also said to ward off thieves and protect travelers .
Amethyst is a rich, purple quartz which was once reserved for royalty, but today it is for those born in February and makes a great gift.
Gift cards are typically thought of as a lazy gift, but they are great for those who need last minute gift ideas. The key to turning a gift card from indifferent to thoughtful is really understanding the recipient. A bean connoisseur who must have her coffee fix before heading into the office every day would love a gift certificate to a boutique coffee shop. A baseball card collector might enjoy a gift certificate to Ebay so he can purchase some new cards that he has his eye on.
