The Ultimate Last-Minute Gift Guide for Christmas and the Holidays


Want to be known as a giver of great gifts? You’ve come to the right place.

These days, anything encouraging rest and relaxation is as close to priceless as it gets, and that happens to be our strong suit here at Bare Necessities. From cheeky thongs to seasonal socks to Secret Santa-worthy designer sleepwear from Ugg, Kate Spade and Oscar de la Renta, we know that sometimes the best things really do come in the smallest packages.

We’ve rounded up our best gifts so you can finish your holiday shopping in one place. Best of all: These presents will get to your door by Christmas, guaranteed (just order by December 16).


P.J. Salvage Snowman Socks

Fun socks and slipper-socks are non-negotiable in a lot of families’ gift-giving traditions. Choose a one-size-fits-all pair for fans of snowmenbunnies, cats or wine. Others on your list might like the cushy, cool simplicity of Barefoot Dreams Cozychic Heathered Plush Socks—they’re non-binding, which makes them perfect for keeping toes toasty on a long winter’s night.

For all the ladies in your life, a Hanky Panky multipack—one size fits all, fun colors, legendarily soft lace—won’t steer you wrong. You can even divide one up for daughters, sisters, nieces…. The price is right when you stock up, and they look too cute rolled up and tucked into a stocking.

Bralettes continue to be a must-have trend at every age group for their style-meet-comfort at a buy-a-bunch price. BRABAR is just in here, and we love its simplicity and fit—it’s meant to feel like a hug.

Boys and men will appreciate the practicality of underwear multipacks with above-average good looks. Pick up a few, and he’s set until 2018.

Oh and yes, there are even dog pajamas for four-legged family members.


Ugg Ansley Slippers

Our foolproof crowd-pleaser is the Ugg Ansley, a sleek shearling-and-suede slip-on in the prettiest soft neutrals. Just look at those 5-star reviews!

Pair the plush, amazingly priced Acorn Spa Thong Slippers with any pair of pajamas to ramp up out the cozy factor. Even better: S-M-L-XL sizing gives you some leeway if you don’t know the recipient’s exact size.

The teens and twenty-somethings (okay, and thirty- and forty- and fifty-somethings) on your list will fall for the fuzzy, Millennial pink P.J. Salvage Faux-Fur Slippers and the on-trend P.J. Salvage Faux-Fur & Pearl Sliders.

There’s something for everyone in our covetable collection of under-$100 Kate Spade slippers, whether you’re a cat person, a dog person, a bird person or frankly more of a glitter person.


Commando Emoji Thongs

If you’re in the running to be the queen of procrastination, consider a present that’s already attractively packaged.

Everything in this category—pajama sets, pretty little undies, bathrobes, lounge pants, and long johns and henleys for him—comes tied up with a bow, literally or figuratively. Tuck under the tree as is or slip inside a holiday gift bag and boom, you’re done.

Yes, even these  Commando emoji thongs
