7 Last-Minute Christmas Gift Ideas

December 20, 2021

Christmas is now officially less than 5 days away! 

There is absolutely no shame in last minute gift shopping!! (I do it every year despite all my grand plans to get through my list as soon as December 1st rolls around…)

If you are scrambling to try to make time to hit the mall after work this week, and get all your gifts wrapped and ready before the 24th, you are going to want to read our list of 7 perfect last minute Christmas gift ideas! 

1) Laser Hair Removal

Yes, there is a way to go about this that will not offend anyone. The golden rule for the holiday season is do not gift this to someone who has never expressed an interest in/or ever mentioned LHR (laser hair removal) to you before. You wouldn’t want anyone you love to think that you’ve been staring at their legs, arms, underarms, or even upper lip each time you’ve been out together and then suddenly thought that Christmas was the perfect opportunity to tell them they need some serious landscaping (yikes!). So, think of someone you know who is an “LHR enthusiast”, or has been wanting to try it out for some time now, and include a voucher (you can write a message on a favourite photo (and promise a day of girly fun with a shopping and lunch date!) or create a custom card and have it printed at London Drugs Photolab and even pick it up the next day!) 

2) Glass Therapy

This is a great gift for the Korean beauty buff in your life! This facial treatment will be sure to give them that coveted “Glass Skin” they’ve seen in Korean dramas and give their skin a real boost in the new year! You can buy the treatment online via our e-shop and if you know their availability you can even go as far as taping an appointment card to their favourite Korean drama or Korean skincare set/kit from one of the brands available at Sephora! 

3) IPL Photofacial

Anyone in your life obsessed with glowing skin? If so, you really need to consider gifting them a session or two of IPL! We always seem to associate rejuvenation and relaxation with the spa, but rather than a manicure or pedicure that delivers short term happiness, it is so much better to give a gift that goes beyond the surface and delivers lasting results! Because this treatment is perfect for age spots, brown spots, sunspots, and redness, it helps reveal fresher, younger skin! Who doesn’t love that?! Gift this treatment to someone who deserves to ‘turn back time’ this year! 

4) ZO Anti-Aging Trio

This is a great gift for mum or a friend who swears by the magic of medical grade skincare! This kit includes the ZO Growth Factor Serum, ZO Firming Serum, and ZO Wrinkle + Texture Repair. And, best of all, it comes in a perfect little translucent cosmetic bag! 

5) ZO The Holiday Skin Brightening at Home Facial Kit

This kit is super cute and is great for the fashionistas in your life! It comes in a super stylish white cosmetic bag and includes an Exfoliation Accelerator, Enzymatic Peel, and an Ossential Skin Brightening Sheet Masque! For only $100, this is a fantastic (and cute) gift option! 

6) SkinCeuticals Phyto Corrective Masque

Want to gift someone some skin care but are not sure what would be appropriate for sensitive skin? Introducing the SkinCeuticals Phyto Corrective Masque! This green gel mask is non-comedogenic, soothing and hydrating, reduces redness, and is great for acne prone skin! If you’re thinking of cute wrapping ideas, I suggest creating a “care basket” that includes the mask, a face washing microfibre hairband, some soothing teas, and a lavender scented candle!

7) Vancouver Laser Gift Card

This option is perfect for someone who has talked about wanting to try multiple treatments but has a very hectic schedule! A gift card lets them know you care and that you understand that they want to have the option to book a treatment at a time that makes the most sense for them! There are so many wonderful ways to package a gift card! You can go for a bit of a silly gag and package it by nestling it in a gigantic box (to fool them) or simply slip it in behind a framed photo of a favourite memory together! 

Merry Christmas from The Vancouver Laser and Skin Care Centre!
