Last-Minute (Non-Lame) Gifts You Can Order Today

So it’s Wednesday, officially about four days until Christmas, and you’re still scratching your head about those last few names on your list.  The stores are all madhouses, the free last-minute shipping is dwindling, and you’re feeling like better luck next year.  But before you throw in the towel and get all bah humbug on me, take a little look below because I’m rounding up some of the best last-minute gifts that the guys and girls on your list will actually love, scout’s honor.  I mean, I was never actually a scout of any kind, but just trust, y’all.  And here we go:

Amazon Prime – If you have Amazon Prime, then you know how amazing it is for ordering literally EVERYTHING, and if you don’t already have it, then maybe it’s time to gift it to yourself, girl.  The benefits are SO worth it to us, and we use our membership all the time.  Also, if your recipient already has Prime, they can add the months onto their membership, or they can convert it to an Amazon gift card.  Which brings me to…

Amazon Gift Card – Since Eric and I have Amazon Prime, we seriously order from Amazon multiple times a week, especially during our construction process.  It makes picking out light fixtures, rugs and furniture, and small necessities in our house so easy, and most things are delivered to your door in 48 hours.  Plus, if you need a dress or shoe or bag STAT, you can get that delivered quickly too.  Fo’ free.

Uber Gift Card – Sign me up for this gift, please!  I seriously don’t know anyone in my area who doesn’t regularly use Uber, and for good reason.  It’s SO convenient.  An added bonus of these gift cards?  The recipient can add the code into their app right away and then toss the card which makes things super easy.

Airbnb Gift Card – For the travel lover, this is a no-brainer.  Whether they pick out a place in Timbuktu or a cozy little spot in their own hometown, these gift cards will cover it.

Southwest Gift Card – (or any travel gift card, really) – Well, because travel ain’t cheap, and fifty bucks off is fifty bucks off.

Postmates Gift Card – If you live in a small town somewhere, you probably have no idea what Postmates is, and that’s probably for the best.  Once you’re sucked in, you’re in, and there’s no way out.  It’s a meal delivery service similar to Uber, and Eric and I have been guilty of using it a time or two or twenty.

Netflix Gift Card – I’ll be honest – Eric and I don’t use our Netflix account THAT much, but when we want to watch something that’s only available on Netflix, we’re really happy to have it.  That said, we don’t watch nearly as many movies or shows as the normal guy or gal.  Poor attention spans or something like that, but the kids these days, they really love the Neflix.  And now I’m officially old.

Need more ideas?  Head over here for a slew of other gift cards to give this season.  You’re in the home stretch, friends!
