The Ultimate Gift Guide for the Last Minute Shopper

Picture this: it’s seven days until Christmas and you have gotten zero gifts. Sound more like reality than a fictional scenario? We feel you. Fortunately The Sparkle Bar is here to the rescue with a huge gift guide of curated holiday faves for the last minute shopper. Breathe easy babe, you’ve got this holiday thing on lock-down…now get shopping!

For a White Elephant Gift

Two words: Vueve Clicquot. Who doesn’t love champagne (and a fancy schmancy bottle at that)? Nuff’ said. Show up with this and your gift is sure to be stolen. Promise. Vueve Clicqout, starting at $45

Depending on the guy and the relationship this could be the gift, a stocking stuffer or, one of many gifts. We’re obsessed with Kiehls and quite frankly if you’re tired of being robbed of your moisturizer, this is the perfect pressie. Men’s Grab & Go Essential Five-Piece Gift Set – $48

For the Luxe Lady

Get ready to swoon because this limited edition scent by Jo Malone London is e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g. Dark and decadent, this musky woodsy scent is a match made in heaven for the gal who gets down with patchouli and Palo Santo burning on the daily. Velvet Rose Oud Rich Extract by Jo Malone London – $285

If you’re look for some other options, Jo Malone has something to tickle just about anyone’s fancy, in addition to a number of gift sets. We recommend visiting the Jo Malone London Boutique at Biltmore Fashion Park for their “build a box” station where you and a Jo Malone London Specialist can curate the perfect gift for that special someone.
