I almost always default to Amazon when I need last-minute, well, anything. Because I love procrastinating, I use it most frantically to buy gifts.
Once you’re on Amazon, you can breathe a little and remind yourself to calm down — it’s impossible not to find a good gift that will arrive in time.
Armed with a Prime membership and lightning-fast typing and scrolling skills, you can browse the huge collection of Prime-eligible products and emerge triumphant, having crossed off gifts for everyone on your list.
Most of these items are available with two-day shipping if you have Amazon Prime, so don’t stress too hard about your last-minute shopping — just remember that the sooner you order, the better your chances of a timely arrival.
If time is catching up to you, we’ve created a cheat sheet to the best 32 gifts on Amazon that will also reliably arrive before Christmas.
