Finding last-minute gifts for your her is possible.

Do you need a gift for your mom? Perhaps for several female coworkers? A teenage girl such as your niece? Maybe your wife, fiancée, or girlfriend? There are some great gift ideas you can use even as Christmas Day approaches, especially if you select expedited shipping or have free shipping through Prime or another membership.

You may want to choose gifts for her to wear.

You might choose something for her to wear, such as fuzzy slippers or a cozy robe. Any kind of slippers on Amazon can keep her feet warm on those chilly winter days and nights. Or try this oversized blanket hoodie sweatshirt, which doubles as a sweater and a blanket.

Jewelry is always a popular option for the ladies on your Christmas list. You can find necklaces, bracelets, and earrings at any major retailer. If you need something personalized, though, you may be too late to get it by Christmas.

A purse or crossbody bag like this one that's currently 51 percent off at $21.95 is another fun last-minute Christmas gift for her to wear.

Self care is huge these days, and often women don't want to spend money on themselves. You can make it easier on her by getting a self-care Christmas gift. Examples include a gift certificate for a spa or salon or a self-care subscription box like this one from TheraBox. It has been featured by Forbes, the Today Show, and Oprah.

You could find a last-minute Christmas gift based on the activities she loves.

This may be tricky, but if you know the person well enough, you can pick a great holiday gift based on her interests. If she's a board game fan, pick out a fun game like Pun Intended Too! or The Settlers of Catan.

What's more decadent that an actual box of bonbons? A gift of specialty chocolates by Jacques Torres or another favorite chocolatier could certainly brighten her Christmas. Another similar idea is a gift of a food subscription for specialty cheeses or other foods. Harry & David has a GreatFoods Gourmet Club starting at $74.99 for three months.
