5 Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas
You may have been procrastinating your holiday shopping throughout fall. Now you’re in a bit of a pickle. The good news for you is that we have 5 wonderful last minute Christmas gift ideas for you. December 17 is the Christmas delivery deadline for USPS Standard shipping, Amazon is delivering packages through Dec. 24 with no specified deadlines and Dec. 20 is the cutoff for UPS 3-Day shipping. This is all of course unless you want to shell out the extra cash for overnight or rushed shipping. Don’t panic, you can still choose one of these last-minute Christmas gifts that you can easily print or email.
E-Gift Cards Make A Great Last Minute Gift
E-Gift cards are one of the easiest and very best last-minute gift ideas. Electronic gift cards are even better than regular gift cards because you can spend as much or as little as you want. Also, you can purchase them on Christmas day in time for a lunch or dinner gift swap with the fam. All you need to do is print them out or email them to the giftee. Just make sure it is a gift card they’ll actually use such as Amazon, Starbucks, Uber, etc.
Another Great Last-Minute Gift Idea Is Streaming Services
These days, almost everything has gone digital. So instead of just searching for Christmas gifts online, provide them with the gift of streaming. There are a lot of great streaming gift options that people don’t tend to spring for themselves. With Amazon specifically, you can purchase add-ons to their existing Amazon Prime subscription. Add-ons such as Shudder and Brit Box are great additions to any horror fan or U.K. television/movie fans’ Amazon Prime account. There are plenty of options to choose from so there’s no excuse if you can’t find a terrific Amazon Prime add-on or additional streaming service for your giftee.
Hard Copy And Electronic Books
Gifting a digital copy of a book is a thoughtful present that looks like it took some time to choose. Google Play has a feature that allows you to buy digital books for anyone with a valid Google account in a couple of simple clicks. Simply find a book, select “Buy as Gift,” enter the recipient’s information and your gift will be delivered to their inbox. You can also purchase e-books a similar way on the Amazon Kindle. One step further would be audio books as a gift for that busy person in your life.
Looking for a tangible book? The good news is that you still have almost a week to visit your local bookstore before they close for the holidays. Within 30 minutes to an hour, you can walk out of the bookstore with a brand-new hard copy novel for that book worm in your life.
Board And Card Games
Board and card games make another last-minute Christmas gift idea. This is a great one, especially since a card or board game can be used on Christmas day and the whole family can join in the fun. Amazon has some unique and interesting board and card games available that are deliverable before Christmas Day if ordered in time. DrinkQuizition, for example, is a trivia drinking card game made right here in Orlando, Florida. Other popular games like Exploding Kittens and What Do You Meme? Can easily be found on Amazon as well.
Beauty, Grooming And Fashion Kits
Easily treat your loved ones to chic style with these unique Christmas gifts that will help them look and feel their best. The best part is, the recipient is in control of personalizing and activating their beauty, grooming and fashion kits, so it won’t even be telling that you don’t have the first box to offer up. Birchbox and Dollar Shave Club are among the most popular and practical examples of grooming kits available on the internet.
