For those of you without Amazon Prime, today is the last day that you can order gifts and have them delivered by Christmas Eve without paying for shipping.
However, you can still sign up for a free trial of Amazon Prime, and try it out for 30 days, and get yourself a few extra days of shopping before gifts will arrive after Christmas. The cut off for Prime members with two-day shipping is going to be Sunday, December 22nd, and those wanting next-day delivery, it'll be Monday, December 23rd. Same-day shipping will be cut off at 9AM on Tuesday, December 24.
Last-Minute Shoppers better stop procrastinating!
We all procrastinate. Many of us wait until the few days before Christmas to actually do our shopping. Some of us even wait til then to start doing our Christmas shopping. But you're starting to run out of time.
It's great being able to shop for the holidays on Amazon Prime and shipping it next day or even the same-day. But at this point, there are a lot of items on Amazon that are not going to arrive before the holidays.
Amazon's website does note the items that aren't expected to arrive in-time for Christmas, and it will show up in red, under the price on the product page. If it does arrive before Christmas, it'll be in green. This is a great way to make sure that what you're buying does show up in time.
We have put together a list of the best last-minute gifts that you can pick up right now. These are mostly inexpensive gifts that you can grab for anyone on your list. Though a few are listed at over $100. They are all available on Amazon and you can still get them today.
You can always get them a gift card
If you're just not sure what to get them for the holidays, or you are past the cut off for shipping in time for the holidays, you can always get a gift card.
Amazon has a number of gift cards available on its site. From Amazon Gift cards, to iTunes, to Google Play and just about any other restaurant or store you can think of. Now if you really want to get them a great gift card, get a VISA gift card. That's a gift card that they can use literally anywhere that VISA is accepted. And it's not limited to a single store.
