Personalized Gift Ideas for the Last-Minute Shopper

Things Remembered Gifts
Everyone has those few people on their list that they leave to the last-minute. And of course, no one wants to look like they’ve literally picked up a last-minute gift – the kind of generic item that feels like it could have been for anyone (or worse, a regift from the back of your closet).

Amazingly enough, if you’re shopping at the 11th hour, you’re not too late to get something totally meant for exactly who you’re shopping for. Things Remembered has an incredible selection of items you can personalize – simply order online and pick up in store in as little as four hours. Plus right now you can buy one gift and get a second one for 75% off (excluding personalization), making it easy to knock a few names off your list in no time. What are you waiting for? Get shopping online with Things Remembered by visiting their Pick Up In Store page! Here are a few of our favorites:
