With all of the work it takes to be fabulous both inside and out, sometimes it is hard to find time for those last minute gifts. It seems that every year, the Holidays sneak up on us faster and faster! For those who are a bit fashionably late this season, here are a few gift ideas that your friends and family won't mind receiving after the parties have died down.

For that friend with the insatiable sweet tooth, a culinary adventure is always fun. A culinary adventure through cakes that is. Cake Monkey, based in Los Angeles, California will deliver scrumptious, one of a kind cakes, cookies, and snacks to your friends and family. Not only are these confections yummy, but they are a treat to look at too. With billowy frosting and decadent toppings, these treats are sure to please.

For the internationally conscious friend, there are many causes to donate to. But one in particular, Heifer International, offers a wide variety of projects, animals and necessities that you can purchase in the recipients name. If you cannot find anything satisfactory at that web address, take a peek at the numerous options that the Good Gifts Catalog has to offer. Not only with you be making the recipient happy, but you will be improving some one elses life as well. Now how's that for some Holiday cheer!!

For that perpetually disorganized friend, here is a gift that women often seem to overlook, but when they receive it, they wonder how they have lived without it for so long. No, it's not diamonds or pearls, the latest fashions or technology; its the travel jewelry roll. Saks Fifth Avenue has a beautiful embossed in stores one right now that is just wonderful. You can even get initials stamped on to make sure it remains in the right hands.

And finally, the inevitable office Secret Santa or gift exchange. It is hard to really gauge what your selected recipient really wants, and what their tastes really are. So a nice neutral gift is hard to beat. Try to stay away from anything scented or any thing too ordinary, after all, you are fabulous. So a great gift to give is a personalized one, a personalized silver compact mirror to be exact. It is always nice to have a pretty compact in your bag, and this one is small enough for a clutch or minaudiere. Things Remembered, which can be found online or in most malls, gives plenty of options to suit your taste.

Happy Gifting!
