The Last Minute Gift Guide: 2023 Edition

Whether your winter holiday of choice has already ended or is yet to come, many of us find ourselves in need of a last-minute gift. That’s why we’ve put together our list of last-minute gifts that offer fast shipping options.

If you’re in a pinch for a last-minute gift, Amazon (and their fashion site Shopbop) has ingratiated itself so fully into our infrastructure that it is one of the few retailers that can turn around an order quickly enough for it to end up under the tree. If your local retailers haven’t got what you need and other online retailers can’t guarantee shipping before the big day, here are 6 last-minute gift ideas from Amazon and Shopbop for the lover of quality goods in your life.

1) Portuguese Flannel: Lobo Corduroy Shirt


If your loved one is a fan of clothes for the holidays, then you can’t go wrong with some nice shirting in an appropriately festive colorway. Portuguese Flannel has some great winter offerings that deliver a solid garment without breaking the bank, such as their Lobo Curodury Shirt. If this isn’t your gift recipient’s style they also have a wide range of other shirts — all made in Portugal – so take a look at what’s out there.

Available for $63 from Shopbop.

2) Reigning Champ: Midweight Terry Hooded Robe


Staying warm and toasty over the colder months is part of the cozy charm of fall/winter. And how better to do that than with a nice robe? Reigning Champ takes their extensive knowledge of sweatshirts and applies it to their Midweight Terry Hooded Robe, offering a soft luxurious feel in a comfy, lounge-ready package.

Available for $180 from Shopbop.

3) Swiss Link Military Surplus: 90 x 62 Wool Blanket


You can never have too many nice blankets and military surplus wool blankets remain the steal of the century. We’ve listed one such option but there are a ton out there, and you might even find yourself lucky in a local surplus shop.

Available for $52 from Amazon.

4) Fireside by Dearfoams: Men’s Melbourne Shearling Indoor/Outdoor Moccasin Slipper


Anyone who hasn’t had a pair of shearling slippers will certainly love getting a pair for the holidays, and Fireside by Dearfoams‘ Melbourn Moccasin Slippers off a great price-to-quality ratio. Beyond the shearling upper, there is a rubber sole to give you better traction and protect them during the occasional step outside.

Available for $60 from Amazon.

5) RAINS: Weekend Bag – Black One Size


Weekender bags are always nice to have around, and RAINS‘ latest version is a great option that is both fairly inexpensive and highly water resistant. It’s shown here in black but comes in eight different colors, so if you like the colorways shown or can find one locally it’s a very flexible option.

Available for $87 from Amazon.

Plus One – Lodge: Cast Iron Skillet


I like to give that can last a long, long time, and few things last longer the a Lodge Cast Iron Skillet. While there are a ton of great cast irons out there, Lodge’s price point is hard to beat while maintaining quality, and their wide range of sizes makes it easy to find what you’re looking for. Does your giftee already have a favorite cast iron? Then consider picking up some cast iron accessories like a chainmail scrubber, quality trivets for serving, or a matching cast iron grill press.

Available for $30 from Amazon.
