It's the day before Christmas and all through the house not a creature was stirring — except you because you forgot a gift! But don't fret, Allyson Waterman of Lucky magazine has some fabulous last-minute gift ideas that are sure to please anyone of your list. 

Gifts for the home under $25
Everyone loves little things for the home, and the best part is you don't have to worry about sizes, fit or fashion trends. Nowadays, there are tons of fashionable, trendy and chic ideas that you don't have to spend a fortune on that can breathe new life into interior decor. Classy looking — yet amazingly trendy — they're great for last-minute gifts that don't look last-minute! Our picks:

  • Gold Rimmed Bowl by Isaac Mizrahi for Target, $5
  • Red Rubber Wood nesting tray by West Elm, $16
  • Mercury votives by West Elm, $14 for a set of 4
  • Leather embossed Wine Caddy from Hold Everything, $16

For the fashionable ladies in your life
Oh, don't we all love to be pampered! That's what gifts for women are all about! And who doesn't love a little lush fragrance, or cashmere, or body lotions and scrubs. So don't worry — whether it's your wife of 30 years, or your girlfriend of 30 days — all of these gifts will fit the bill:

One fabulous way to go is a collection of pampering for her skin. But who has time to lounge around a spa or store to pick up all the goodies for a collection? Instead, go for a pre-packaged set. Try the Memoirs of a Geisha “Kyoto Empress Gift Set” by Fresh. ($125)

Yea, shirts are boring. No wait! They don't have to be! Instead of picking up one shirt she'll wear for one season, go for a gift set of shirts from the classic Lacoste, which includes a selection of timeless and classic shirts that she'll love, and best of all it comes pre-boxed in a cool package, so you don't have to worry about folding for presentation! (Available at Saks 5th Ave.)

Purses, clutches and carry-alls are a great buy too! But trying to find a trendy one is tough when you're in a rush. So go for a great looking, durable and wallet-friendly choice like the faux-shearling hobo bag from Gap. ($34.50) If you're really wanting that designer name, a great idea is to choose something that will give back to a good cause. Buy the continental wallet from Gucci and 20% of all proceeds benefit UNICEF programs for children affected with HIV/AIDS. A great choice for a gift and for a gift to those in need. ($410)

For the men in your lifeWho doesn't know someone who could use a little picking up around the house? If you're like me, that bulky vacuum in the closet only comes out in dire circumstances, or if the dust bunnies are threatening to take over my real estate! For a guy who loves to lounge instead of clean, the iRobotROOMBA is a great gift to make life a little neater. ($399)

Cashmere isn't just for girls any more. Cashmere scarves and throws goes with anything in anyone's life, and with the prices on this luxury fabric dropping due to sales this late in the season, you can pick up a dose of luxe for your loved one. We love the collection of cashmere accessories at Banana Republic, especially since choices don't have to break the bank. Options run from $29-$69 for every guy from one year to 100! For a bit more luxury in your cashmere choice, Coach offers leather gloves with cashmere lining — for men and women. ($98 and $138)
