The holiday scramble is something many consumers know all too well. Whether they’ve procrastinated on shopping or are crossing off the final names on their lists, Emmy-Award Winning Television Host and Lifestyle Expert, Marisa Brahney has compiled a last-minute gift list to help those looking for presents ahead of the big day.


Brahney’s first gift idea comes down to living a happier and healthier life. 23andMe gives people access to their DNA, everything from health, to traits, to ancestry.

“When you take a 23andMe test you’ll get genetic insights backed by science to help you take greater control of your health. This includes over 150 personalized reports. You’ll also get a deeper look at your ancestry, with over 2,000 regions and population-specific reports,” says Brahney.

Chocolate, specifically Lindt chocolate, also makes Brahney’s list. She says, “It’s perfect to share with loved ones, make colleagues smile, or simply indulge on your own during this busy time of year.”

Lindt Chocolate, the world-renowned Swiss chocolatier, has an extensive holiday collection, including chocolate figures perfect for stocking stuffers and seasonal chocolate gift boxes. However, the lifestyle expert recommends the brand’s holiday classic, LINDOR truffles. Each LINDOR truffle is finely crafted with a chocolate shell that envelops an irresistibly smooth, melting truffle filling. When you break the truffle’s shell, LINDOR starts to melt and so will you. The iconic LINDOR truffle was developed more than 50 years ago as holiday tree ornament. Today, it is a festive, favorite way to remind a friend or loved one how much they mean to you this holiday season.

She points out that they’re available in classic milk chocolate and other seasonal flavors, such as white chocolate peppermint, in festive bags or gift boxes.

For more information, go to, or find them at retailers nationwide.

Data shows that receiving cash can be the preferred gift for many during the holidays, especially with the post-holiday economic forecast. Brahney’s final gift idea is to move on from the age-old faux pas of giving cash as a gift.

Venmo and PayPal provide a quick and easy way to send money or digital gift cards. With PayPal and Venmo, “You’re able to manage holiday group expenses like splitting a cab to a party or sending a cash gift to your friends and family to spend however they’d like,” says Brahney.

Gifters are also able to add a personal touch with an array of gift wraps including a limited-edition custom gift wrap from Mariah Carey, which adds sparkle to those last-minute gifts sent on Venmo.

Sign up online or download Venmo and PayPal through the Apple or Google Play app stores.
