Last Minute Gifts That Won’t Disappoint


o matter how many times I resolve never do it again, I will always wait until the last minute to finish my Christmas shopping. And I’m talking all my Christmas shopping, except for that one random person I happen to check off my list in early November. It happens every year and I’ll never understand why.

If there’s one thing last minute gifters all have in common, it’s that they’re willing to shell out whatever it takes to make sure they don’t disappoint their loved ones. The gifts on this list are by no means bargains, but I’ll tell you their exact location in the mall  and I guarantee they will be a hit. Getting in and out of NorthPark as quickly as possible is worth spending a little extra. You’re paying for sanity.

Tria Hair Removal Laser

At-Home Laser Hair Removal 

It’s the gift that keeps on giving, forever. I know what you’re thinking, but the Tria Hair Removal Laser has actually had amazing results. I’ve been doing it on my underarms (sorry ew) for months and it has worked wonders. I haven’t been doing it long enough to be an expert on whether or not it gets rid of hair completely, but at the rate it’s going, I’d bet money on it!
