We’re not sure why we’re left scrambling to score last-minute Christmas gifts every year, but here we are: Another Christmas season that started right after Halloween, another Christmas season ending with chaos. It’s Groundhog day, every year. Do yourself a favor: avoid the mall (ugh) and shop online, as two-day shipping means plenty of great gifts can be ordered with ease to arrive by the 24th.
Our favorite last-minute gifts come in a bunch of different prices, from stocking stuffers to prime under-the-tree candidates. But most importantly, they’re all available on Amazon Prime so, like Santa, they’ll get here right on time.
