If you still haven’t finished your shopping, well time is really running out to get those last minute gifts. And there’s not a whole lot of options left for gifts this year. However, we have rounded up the best gifts that you can still purchase.
Now it’s important to remember that Amazon’s absolute cut off time for same-day delivery on Christmas Eve is going to be 9:30AM local time, so if you’re buying last minute gifts that needs to ship, you don’t have long for that. But if you’re purchasing something after Christmas (perhaps with a gift card you got for Christmas), then you’ll still get it this week.
Here’s the best gifts that you can still pick up, and a few gifts that you can get with those gift cards you received.
The Gift of Amazon Prime
This is a gift that everyone will love, even though it looks like you didn’t put much thought into it. That’s because everyone (just about) has Amazon Prime. And getting three months or even a full year for free, is definitely nice.
You can gift three months of Amazon Prime for just $39, or the full year for $119. Basically, the regular price.
With the gift of Prime, members are able to add this to their membership, so it’ll be even longer before they need to renew. Prime does offer a ton of benefits. Not only do you get free two-day and next day shipping on millions of items. But you also get Amazon Prime Video, Twitch Prime and so much more. It’s really worth the $119 per year that Amazon charges.
Amazon also has a ton of gift cards that you can pick up for anyone on your list. There’s of course Amazon gift cards, which everyone would love. But if you want to get something that shows a bit more thought, Amazon has gift cards for virtually every restaurant and retailer available. These are available both digitally and physically. And at this rate, you’re going to want the digital card.
There’s Best Buy, Target, Kohl’s, Walmart, Doordash, Grubhub, Uber, Google Play, iTunes and so much more. These start at $25 and go up from there. And actually, today, there are a few deals on Gift Cards. So it’s still a good time to grab one.
Tile Essentials (2020)
The Tile Essentials is a really good option for a lot of people. Especially if you are one that loses stuff quite often. Tile will be able to ring when you need to find whatever it is attached too, and you can see where it is from the Tile app on your smartphone.
The Tile Essentials bundle comes with 2 Stickers, 1 Mate, 1 Slim, and right now it is available for just $49.99. That’s not a bad price at all for four trackers from Tile.
Anker PowerCore 13000 Portable Charger
No matter who’s still on your list, a portable charger is always going to be a great gift to get. As it’s going to be able to keep their phone charged when they are not at home. The Anker PowerCore 13000 Portable Charger is a really great option for a lot of people.
This portable charger is a pretty small one, that can fit in your pocket, but still packs enough juice to charge your phone a couple of times. That’s definitely a good thing. The PowerCore 13000 has 13,000mAh capacity inside. That’s enough to charge your phone about four times before it needs to be recharged. That of course, depends on the size of the battery in your smartphone though.
Amazon Echo Dot (3rd Gen)
The Amazon Echo Dot is still at its Black Friday price, so even if you aren’t getting it as a gift, it’s still a good time to pick one up. It’s just $24 right now, good for $25 off of its regular price.
The Echo Dot is a pretty small smart speaker from Amazon that has Alexa built-in. And should definitely be on your list of last minute gifts to get this year.
With Alexa, you’re going to be able to ask about the weather and traffic, as well as get your news and even control your smart home products, all with your voice. Which is a really cool feature to have.
