Find Last-Minute Christmas Gifts in Marietta

With all of the tree trimming, cookie baking and partygoing, there is so much to do during the holidays that it's easy to leave shopping for Christmas presents until the last minute. But by then, the malls and chain stores are usually chaotic and the mere thought of battling crowds is exhausting.

Here are some ideas for easy gifts that can be bought locally and require little stress:

  • Go to a home decor store like Anna's Linens and pick out some pretty bathroom soaps with a matching towel and soap stand for teachers, relatives and neighbors.
  • Go to the Marietta Flower Shop, Owen's Flower Shoppe, The Garden Keeper or other flower and gift shops for festive, holiday-inspired bouquets, or wreaths with candles that would make nice centerpieces for a friend or neighbor’s Christmas dinner table.
  • Go to a book store and pick out a few fun titles for the children in your family, or your kid’s friends.
  • Go to Gabriel's Desserts, Sugar Cakes, Salazar's Bakery, La Suprema Bakery, Miss Mamie's Cupcakes, Sugarplum Visions and other bakeries and order a festive cake or box of cookies that would be a delicious complement to holiday dinners.
  • Go to a sports shop and pick up a gift certificate or new running shoes, golf clubs or sporting accessories for the athlete in your life.
  • Go to a salon and give someone in your life who needs a little relaxation a gift certificate for a manicure, pedicure or spa treatment.
