Christmas is just a few days away. But there’s still time to pick up some last-minute gifts. You can even still order things online to get them in time for Christmas. Some online retailers promise your gifts will arrive in time for Christmas with standard shipping if you order by today. While others are offering shipping specials (like free upgrades to expedited shipping) so you can get gifts in the nick of time.
Here are some great gift ideas you can get at stores and online from Philosophy, Crabtree & Evelyn, Eight Body Moisture, Votre Vu, Burt’s Bees and even – believe it or not – White Castles (with the help of Nest Fragrances).
Philosophy has an incredibly impressive assortment of really cute boxed gift sets. They have several at Sephora stores and at sephora.com. There are even more holiday offerings at Philosophy boutiques and philosophy.com like the adorable Warm and Toasty set ($25), which includes three six-ounce shampoo/shower gel/bubble baths in scents to inspire the warm, cozy feeling you get from sipping hot toddies by a toasty fire. There’s Double Rich Hot Cocoa, Hot Buttered Rum and Hazelnut Espresso, which all smell decadently delightful.
Philosophy is offering free express shipping through 12/21 on online orders over $75 (no promo code needed).

Crabtree & Evelyn
Crabtree & Evelyn also has lots of gift sets – everything from candles in seasonal scents to bath & body sets for him and her.
Be sure to check out the Christmas Collection, which includes Windsor Forest (reminiscent of a walk through the forest), Vanilla (which is said to be incredibly popular with men, because it reminds them of Mom baking), Pomegranate (a light, fresh scent accented with holly and citron) and Noel (a blend of seasonal spices and citrus).
Seasonal fragrance collections and gift sets are on sale at crabtreeandevelyn.com. They guarantee delivery in time for Christmas if you order online by 12/21. You can also find Crabtree & Evelyn stores at many malls.
Eight Body Moisture
Dry skin is a problem for just about everyone this time of year. Help them banish this uncomfortable condition with a rich, luxurious bath and body set from Eight Body Moisture.

The company has two gift sets available: the Body Wash & Moisture Gift Set ($45, includes full-size bottles of Eight Body Moisture lotion and Eight Créme Body Wash) and the Treatment Gift Set ($79, includes a Dry Skin Body Brush and full-sizes of Body Wash and Sugar Scrub).

Burt’s Bees is always popular with just about everyone – men and women.

You can get Burt’s Bees gift sets at many stores, including Target and Walgreen’s, and order online at sites like drugstore.com and target.com.
White Castles – you either love them or you hate them. If you have any White Castles fans on your list, get them a White Castles Candle ($13) – the result of a collaboration between White Castles and Nest Fragrances. Yes, this candle actually smells like those little beloved/berated burgers and comes in a ceramic holder in the shape of a slider box. This is one gift that will surely have everyone talking.
You can pick them up at White Castles restaurants and order them at whitecastles.com. A portion of the proceeds benefit Autism Speaks.
