2. Candles. Everyone loves candles, especially ones that smell really good. Check out your local Home Goods, Target, Marshalls or other retailer that carries candles. Bonus points if it’s in a pretty holder!
3. You can never go wrong with a beauty, fragrance or bath gift set for the gals in your life, and even the guys! Here’s a few at some favorite sets available at Ulta Beauty.

5. When all else fails, go with a gift card. You can usually find a variety of gift card options at local drugstores, such as CVS, or Walmart and other places. If you’re truly strapped for time, there’s always Starbucks!
