Fabulous Holiday Gifts with Next-Day Shipping

Have you ever woken up one morning about a week and a half away from Christmas and realized that in the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, you’ve put off actually buying and shipping your gifts until the last minute? Don’t worry, you aren’t alone! This belated gift-buying frenzy hits many people during the holiday season, which is why a lot of online retailers tend to offer special deals for accelerated shipping.

Artfire is certainly no exception to this rule, and have even embraced the last-minute present pandemic by incorporating a handy feature to their main page – a section specifically devoted to gifts that are guaranteed to be in the mail the day after you place an order! Their Gifts in the Mail Tomorrow section can be a life-saver if you’re scrambling for gift ideas in the last few days before Christmas, and I decided to take a look and showcase some of the section’s coolest items. Better hurry though – some of these items are one-of-a-kind pieces and won’t be available for long!

“Denim Blues” 3-Wrap Bracelet

I’m not normally a bracelet person, but this awesome piece from seller TOWNOFBEADROCK just might be changing my mind about that. I love the contrast of the cool blue beads with the earthy leather and antique metal flower clasp, and wrap bracelets are just more fun to wear in general than regular bracelets, don’t you think? :)

Blue Snowflake Fleece Neck Cowl

Scarves are the expected go-to for keeping necks warm during the chillier months of the year, but what if you don’t want to deal with those loose, hanging ends? Cowls are the answer to your dilemma, and this toasty-looking blue snowflake fleece cowl from seller Clearwater_Creations could easily be on its way to a friend or relative tomorrow!

Hot Peppers Microwave Potato/Corn Bag

I’d heard of using bags like this Hot Peppers Microwave Potato/Corn Bag to cook veggies in the microwave before I stumbled across this item from seller vabeachquilter, but I didn’t know they could be made of 100% cotton and look so snazzy! This’d be a fun gift for the kitchen whiz in your life – especially one that doesn’t want to spend hours cooking potatoes in the oven. Directions for how to properly use the bag are included with every order!

Chunky Turquoise and Copper Necklace

Oh my goodness do I love chunky turquoise jewelry, and this stunning necklace from seller ShadowDogDesigns is a one-of-a-kind piece that would flatter just about anyone that loves bold and unique jewelry designs. Reading this seller’s product description for this item really shows how much care and effort went into making this specific piece, so you’d better act quickly before someone else snaps it up!

Vintage Metlox Poppytrail Red Rooster Salt and Pepper Shakers

How cute are these vintage Metlox Poppytrail Red Rooster salt and pepper shakers from seller CandyAppleCrafts?! I think they are adorable, and the perfect gift for someone with a more rustic-themed kitchen. Made in 1956, priced now at $24.00, and in mint condition, they’re an absolute steal!

Black, White, and Red Lap/Baby Quilt

This black, white, and red quilt from seller GracefulArts was specifically and carefully designed with baby in mind. As the seller’s product description explains, “studies have shown that babies see black and white first, and then red. This was my inspiration.” And what an inspiration that was – this quilt’s a fabulous piece of craftsmanship, and would be a striking (and visually stimulating) addition to any nursery!

 Old Lady Glasses Swarovski Crystal Set

Llibrarian-style horn-rimmed glasses, as far as I’m concerned, will never go out of style, and this stylish necklace/earring set from seller KraftyMax demonstrates that quite handily! These unique pieces are gold-plated, and the gorgeous Swarovski crystals accent the sassy “Old Lady glasses” of the necklace perfectly. Perhaps a good gift for the librarian in your life?

Hope these great next-day shipping gift ideas helped relieve your last-minute shopping fears a bit, and make sure to check out the rest of the Gifts in the Mail Tomorrow section for some more great pieces from Artfire sellers!
