Last Minute Gifts

Published
Sometimes last minute Christmas shopping is inevitable, even for the most diligent shopper. Heck, even we're scrambling for a few last minute gifts. Luckily, there are still tons of online options that are available despite the dwindling days before the holiday, and many stores strive to cater to your needs -- shipping upgrades (so you can avoid stores and still get the goods on time) are scattered across the internet. So stop hyperventilating and take a look at our favorite last minute deals:

First, take all of the guesswork out of your shopping with gifts that don't necessitate a Christmas arrival, like a magazine subscription. Simply order online, pick up the latest issue, and stick a bow and thoughtful card on top. You could even order moments before driving over to exchange gifts! Amazon.com offers dozens of magazine subscriptions for reduced prices, and until December 31st, it takes $5 off automatically when you drop it in your cart. Plus there are no shipping fees, and every month when your loved one reaches into the mailbox, he or she will think of you. How much better could a last minute gift get?

If magazines don't float your boat, however, why not try flowers or delicious treats? Calyx Flowers has many options for monthly gifts. Prices range drastically depending on the type of flower and length of time, but you can get a 3-month Gerbera Daisy "subscription" for $119. We can also attest to the wonders of Mack's Groves citrus fruit packages, straight from the sunshine state; we get them every year! Try the Honeybell Care Package for just $26.99. The recipient will never go back to supermarket oranges again.

There are also several stores that guarantee December 24th delivery, so don't fret if you want to have a physical gift come Christmas. And why not save some money while you're taking care of some last minute business? Bath & Body Works takes 30% off dozens of gift sets, including some great pampering themed sets, and Old Navy has an entire page dedicated to gifts with up to 50% off savings. We recommend anything that screams comfort, like a sweater or slippers. We also adore Shopbop.com's current promotion on its own clothing line, Bop Basics. Knock several people off your list in one fell swoop with the coupon code "SHOPBOPBASICS", which takes 30% off when you order three items from the Bop Basics line (search "bop basics"). Major savings just means better gifts come Christmas.

Need some guy-specific suggestions? Why not pick something up at Dick's Sporting Goods or NFLShop.com, both of which take 50% off overnight shipping through December 22nd at 12 pm EST. That's one of the latest dates you can order by! We think this Picnic Plus Stadium Seat for $25 at Dick's Sporting Goods is a great idea for the avid football fan. Or try NFLShop.com for a football jersey from his favorite team (just select the "jerseys" tab up top). So stop pulling your hair out: it's not too late to take advantage of shopping online for Christmas, as our last minute deals prove. And don't be afraid to shop around at other sites for gifts -- just remember to check the shipping information before placing your order.
