Unique Gift Ideas for the Last Minute Christmas Shopper in Las Vegas  

If you are anything like me, and I know a lot of you are, you probably still have Christmas gifts to buy for that hard to please friend or relative. I’ve even bought gas station gift cards on my way to Christmas dinner in the past. They did seem a little pathetic following my Cousin Sheila’s homemade soaps and lotions. Well guys, I’m here to help you avoid that! Here are some creative last minute gift ideas for Las Vegas locals.

Vegas! The Show at the Saxe Theater

Winner of the best show in Vegas, this one is sure to please! Rather than just giving merchandise and guessing at what your loved one might want, why not give them an experience? Vegas! The Show is one of the most talked about and highly awarded shows around right now.

Use Promo Code RVT50 for 50% off tickets! Save $54.49/ticket with RVT50.

Not only is it simply an amazing show, but it highlights some of the things that have made our city what it is today.  The show takes you through the history of Las Vegas with crooners singing Elvis and Frank Sinatra Jr. Of course, the show is full of world-class magicians and showgirls too.

Gold Bars from the Golden Nugget

Isn’t cash what most people really want for Christmas anyway? With this gold dispensing ATM machine, you can give them exactly that! This is a simple way to get everybody’s present in one stop. They can choose to use it as extra spending cash, but it can also be a great conversation piece and investment opportunity.

Gold prices fluctuate, which is where the investment opportunity comes from. The Gold to Go ATM machine has a program that updates to the current market value of gold every 10 minutes. There’s no need to worry about not getting a fair price. Currently the cost for 1g of gold is just over $40.

If investing isn’t their thing, there definitely isn’t a shortage of places for them to trade their gold for cash. You can sort of think of this one as a super cool gift card. The Machine dispenses 1g, 5g, and 10g sizes. Currently they would cost you about $40, $200, and $400 dollars respectively.

The Gold to Go ATM is located at:
Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino
129 Fremont St
Las Vegas, NV 89101

*Yes, at this time, it appears that you can only get this gift by visiting the store. Check out downtown Las Vegas, and get a unique gift at the Golden Nugget today!

Customistic Personalized Merchandise

It doesn’t get any more personal than personalized merchandise. This is usually not an option for last minute shoppers. This is not the case with Customistic Personalized Merchandise. They advertise that they are “home of the $25 dollar shirt made in 20 minutes”

You can put your uncles most commonly used phrase, funny pictures, inside jokes, etc. The possibilities go on and on. They have all types of shirts, and even carry kids’ sizes too. They also offer other stuff like aprons, stuffed animals and blankets. For more information on what they can do and pricing you can visit their website or stop by the store inside the Sahara Decatur Plaza.

2605 S. Decatur Blvd. Ste 105
Las Vegas NV 98102

Pandora Vegas Charms

Jewelry is a commonly sought Christmas gift. Why not give them something unique to Las Vegas? Pandora offers a set of charms only available to purchase here locally. These Las Vegas themed charms can be found in the Caesars Forum Shops and at the Las Vegas Fashion Show Mall.

You could even start a tradition of giving a new charm each Christmas. That makes your Christmas gift brainstorming session easier next year too. Sounds like a win-win to me!

That's all for now folks!  Enjoy the holiday season with family and friends 🙂
