If you’re anything like us, you probably waited until the last minute to find your friends and family Christmas presents. Have no fear; Shorebread has compiled a list to save you from the embarrassment of giving lame, last minute gifts. We’ve come up with some GREAT gifts for you to give the people in your life to show your appreciation and love (even though you might have waited to do your shopping until Christmas Eve):

1.)   Give a gym membership:

West Ocean City Fitness is offering you the opportunity to give the gift of fitness. Right now, for only $25, get your friend or loved one started on a healthier lifestyle and a month of gym membership. Act quickly though, the offer expires on December 25th, 2014.

2.)  Give the gift of a gift card:

This is one of our favorite last minute gift ideas… you just can’t go wrong with a gift card to your loved one’s favorite restaurant! Our recommendations: Laha, The Atlantic Hotel, Sunset Grille, Carabbas, The Shark, Seacrets, Liquid Assets, Brew River and SO many more! The options are endless.

3.)  Classes at The Art League of Ocean City:

This is such a unique idea… but something that will live on forever! The Art League of Ocean City offers so many options: adult pottery, beginners and beyond watercolor classes, brushes and bubbly, clay making and scarf making. The new building is breathtakingly beautiful!

4.) Gift cards to local surf shops:

It may seem simple, but there is nothing like forgetting about a gift card and remembering that you have it in your wallet when spring rolls around. Let them pick out a bathing suit for next summer!

5.)  Stop in the Worcester County Humane Society:

If you’re looking for a last minute gift for the animal lover… head to the Humane Society. Stop in and check out their awesome t-shirts, car magnets, sea biscuits, bandanas and tote bags. You really can’t beat buying these and supporting a great cause!

6.) Salisbury Zoo-Animal Sponsorships:

There’s no more rewarding gift than supporting our local zoo through an animal adoption. The adopted animal will remain at the zoo where it will receive the expert care it needs. Adoptions make excellent gifts and are valid for one full year. There are tons of packages available… $24 Wild Parent 1: A personalized adoption certificate with picture, animal fact sheet. $35 Wild Parent 2: A personalized adoption certificate with picture, animal fact sheet, name on animal adoption board. $65 Wild Parent 3: same as above with invitation for 2 to a special zoo friend’s picnic. $100 Wild Parent 4: same as above with framed certificate. $250 Wild Parent 5: same as above with family membership to the Friends of the Salisbury Zoo.

Happy gift giving!
