Centric helps the lazy tackle their gift list this holiday season

Last minute holiday shopping can be a drag. Though common, waiting until the last days before Christmas to tackle your gift list is not only stressful and overwhelming, but can give you much anxiety--especially when you have no idea where to start.


As always we here at Centric have your back, which is why we’ve compiled a list of items for you to choose from. From something useful for the home to something one can use all year round, here’s our last-minute gift guide for you procrastinators out there. Check it out!


Send Edible Arrangements


Maybe you want to get someone a gift but not something that would be deemed “overdoing it.” If that’s the case, sending something like an Edible Arrangements basket sends a nice gesture without seeming you went out of your way. Maybe it’s a family friend you simply want to acknowledge for the holiday or a kind co-worker who’s been pleasant to you throughout the year. And the best part? Even if you wait until the very last minute, say Christmas Eve, you can still have it delivered in time for the big day. They’re also offering same-day deliver. You can send a strawberries dipped in festive chocolate decorations or a bouquet of fresh fruit inside of a red holiday reindeer sleigh ride.

Price: $39 and up. Where: www.ediblearrangements.com.


Wine Storage Rack


If the receiver of your gift is someone who considers themselves to be a wine connoisseur, you’ll earn extra cool points for nabbing this Tack Storage Wine Rack from Anthropologie. It’s handmade, holds six wines bottles, and is perfect for hanging in the kitchen. Not to mention, it’s extremely practical and will certainly be put to great use.

Price: $98. Where: www.anthropologie.com.


Hulu, Netflix or Spotify Subscription


If you’re going to get someone a holiday gift get them something they can use all-year round and something will enjoy for more than a day. A music subscription to Spotify or television and movie subscription to Hulu or Netflix will go a long way. You can get a six-month to a year subscription, which will only cost you between $50 to $100. And the best part is that you don’t have to physically get up to purchase it; you do it all from the comfort of your computer screen. Happy holidays.

Beauty Product Subscription Box


Everybody loves to try out  facial and body products, which is why sending a beauty product subscription box would be the ultimate gift option. Companies like Birchbox allow you to send a personalized box of beauty products along with subscriptions all for your convenience. Typically inexpensive, a beauty box in the mail is perfect way to send the message, “I’m thinking of you for the holiday.”

Price: $30-60. Where: www.birchbox.com.


K. Michelle’s “Anybody Wanna Buy A Heart?”


Sometimes keeping it simple is the best policy when gifting for the holiday. If the receiver of your gift is a single, maybe even heartbroken woman, she’ll love K. Michelle’s new sophomore album “Anybody Wanna Buy A Heart?” It’s pleasant to the ear and highly approved on the streets. Michelle’s lyrical, emotive honesty will take her on an emotional journey, leaving her empowered and hopeful for love yet again. We promise it won’t disappoint.
