Your last minute Christmas gift guide
READ: Most shoppers have yet to complete their holiday shopping lists

With Christmas only four days away, it’s time to buckle down and finish your shopping list. Whether you started or you don’t know where to start, think of this list as a helpful guide to conquer the gift-giving season. Below is a list of last minute gifts to make you look like a gift-giving professional.

Give the gift of a good mail day by purchasing a subscription for the person you love:

  • For anyone:

    A Netflix subscription is a perfect gift for anyone. You can either buy a gift card at stores like Walmart or directly from the streaming website.

  • For the avid shopper in your life:

    A year subscription for Amazon prime can also be a gift for anyone. Nothing says I love you, more than free two-day shipping on pretty much anything.

  • For the coffee addict you love:

    Yes, a Starbucks gift card is not a bad idea, but a subscription to Mistobox will deliver different kinds of coffee to your loved one’s doorstep every month. (https://one.mistobox.com/gift/)

Online gifts that can still make it before Christmas:

  • For the selfie enthusiast:

    A selfie stick is not only cheap but will become very useful when it is time to take a group picture with the whole family on Christmas day.

  • For the roommate with a sense of humor:

    Cards Against Humanity has ruined lives everywhere but in a good way.

  • For the music lovers who prefer vinyl:

    Amazon has a variety of albums offered on vinyl, and with the two-day shipping option, it will arrive before Christmas.

The gifts that can be picked up at the store right now:

  • For the person who just wants money:

    You can never go wrong with gift cards and scratch offs. Although, they seem a little impersonal, you can wrap the card in yarn or create cute little holders to give it a cute, personal touch.

  • For the movie fanatic:

    DVDs are an easy go-to gift for that special someone who loves movies. You can even take it a step farther if you purchase one of the franchise bundles (i.e., Harry Potter).

  • For your frustrated artist:

    Adult coloring books are very popular at the moment. These coloring books are a great way to cool down from a stressful day. Who says coloring is just for kids?

Thoughtful last minute DIY gifts:

Good luck this the holiday season.
