Local Holiday Gift Guide: For The Last Minute Shopper

Raise your hand if you're on Team Last Minute! Have no fear, the Country Club Plaza is here!!! This local shopping spot is where I'll be knocking out all my last minute gifts! I love that the Plaza offers such a wide range of shops; everything from makeup and beauty, to home decor, apparel and more! So, here's a few of the spots I'll be buying gifts from!

For The Skincare & Makeup Lover

Bluemercury is a one stop shop for the skincare, makeup and beauty lover you're buying for. This gorgeous store is welcoming and the products are beautifully displayed.

Gift sets are an easy go to when last minute shopping! You can gift a little bit of everything while also getting an amazing value! Bluemercury's Holiday Beauty Junkie Set features a plethora of cult favorites! The Molten Brown Stocking Filler Collection of bath and shower gels is another epic gifting option and the perfect stocking stuffer size. Holiday shopping in person can feel overwhelming this year, so I love that the Country Club Plaza location offers in store pick up for online orders! No need to stress about your gifts arriving late. Shop online and choose the "store pick up" option.

For The Sneaker Head

VANS is the spot to snag sneakers for the whole family! The Confetti Classics Slip Ons happen to be my all time favorite pair of shoes (might be gifting a new pair to myself) and perfect for the sneaker head in your life! It's also THE spot to snag last minute gifts if you're looking for unique apparel like hoodies and t-shirts.

PRO TIP: Don't have time to shop in person? Shop online and take advantage of curb side pick up at the Country Club Plaza location!

There Core Basic Beanies and variety of socks make AMAZING stocking stuffers!

For The Fashionista

Free People happens to be one of my favorite stores on the Plaza, so I gifted myself quite a few things from this spot. If you're shopping for the fashionista on your list, Free People is THE place to discover unique and beautiful pieces. The Plaza location was recently renovated making the shopping experience even more luxurious. Free People also offers an in store pick up option at the Country Club Plaza location, so don't worry if you're truly on Team Last Minute!

For The Coffee & Tea Lover

Kaldi's Coffee is one of the best coffee shops at the Country Club Plaza to take a coffee break while shopping. They also offer wonderful gifts for coffee and tea lovers! Snag one or two of their Holiday Gift Boxes for the perfectly curated coffee themed gift. Or their Matcha Lover and Tea Blender Box is a beautiful option for that "hard to buy for" person on your list.

For Everyone Left On The List

Made In KC Marketplace is my last minute holiday shopping go to every year (and let's be honest, I'm shopping there all during the year as well) because they have it all; the one stop local shop with a little something for everyone on your list!

Need beard balm for the bearded fellow in your life, Believe In Your Beard Lavender Beard Balm makes for a phenomenal stocking stuffer! Every crevice of this epic store is full of local must haves from coffee, sweets and treats, to plants, candles, home decor and accessories.

The Sandlot Exclusive Tote in Rover Yellow would be the cutest teacher gift! Add a cute mug and a bag of I Loaf You Sugar Cookie Mix for the perfectly curated gift.

So that's my round up friends! Shout out to the Country Club Plaza for making it a breeze to knock out my last minute shopping, leaving me stress free with extra time to relax and sip coffee! Cheers to a season of stress free gifting!
