NEWS – Instead of beating yourself up that you waited until 2 days before Christmas to get your shopping finished, I have 5 last minute gift ideas that can help ease the panic.

Amazon Prime membership

You can give 3 months of Amazon Prime for $44.97 or a whole year for $139.00. Use this link to find out how to give Amazon Prime as a gift! Here are 4 reasons why everyone will consider this a great gift.

  • Free Prime shipping! Items arrive faster without paying extra!
    Prime membership includes Amazon Prime Video so you can watch series like Jack Ryan, Rings of Power, and the Terminal List
  • Prime membership includes Amazon Music so you can listen to all your favorite artists, stations, and podcasts
  • Free Kindle e-books and unlimited photo storage!

Magazine subscriptions

If the person who you’re shopping for has a tablet, get them a magazine subscription that covers their favorite topic or hobby. Know someone who loves to cook? Get them a subscription to Food & Wine magazine. Know someone who enjoys wood working? A subscription to Wood magazine would be perfect for them. Go to magazines.com to browse through 100’s of magazines. You’re sure to find one that someone on your list will enjoy.

Gift cards

Many people think giving gift cards as gifts is a huge cop-out because it doesn’t require any thought. I say give me gift cards because then I can buy exactly what I want for myself! You can either go to your local Walmart, Walgreens, or CVS and grab a gift card there or save the trip (and gas) and just order an electronic gift card from Amazon!

Subscription to streaming services

You can easily find electronic gift cards for Netflix, Hulu, or Spotify right on Amazon. Another streaming service gift idea to consider for a family that has small children or Star Wars fans is a subscription to Disney+.

Gift box subscription

This last idea is for a gift box subscription. Although choosing this idea will mean that the recipient won’t get their gift right away, it does mean that they can get more than one gift out of the deal if that’s the way you decide to set up the subscription. There are many gift box services on the market, but one that I’ve looked into is Crate Joy. They have a lot of choices for men, women, and kids in many categories like fitness, outdoors, arts and crafts, games, comics, faith and religion, snacks, and a lot more. Head over to cratejoy.com for more info.
