Out of Time? 6 Very Last-Minute Gifts You Can Buy Even on Christmas Day

With less than a week until Christmas, shoppers are feeling the crunch to have their gifts wrapped and under the tree by Wednesday. You’ve made your list and checked it twice. But what if you still forget someone? (Please tell me I’m not the only one who has done this!)

Despite carefully crafted gift lists and weeks spent budgeting and shopping, sometimes things slip through the cracks (or you realize one of your kids has one less gift than the rest!), and you end up needing a gift at the very last minute.

Don’t get stuck with rush shipping fees! There are still plenty of ways to give awesome gifts without busting your budget on emergency gifts or wasting money on convenience store items when all the other stores are closed.

Here are 6 awesome last-minute gifts you can buy all the way through Christmas Day!

  • Monthly Subscriptions 2 of 7

    Monthly subscriptions like magazines, Kiwi craft deliveries, and Little Passports are like sending a new gift to their mailbox every month! Order online at any time. Plus, choose a popular magazine title, and the local convenience store may even have a current issue available to wrap.

  • Theme Park or Museum Passes 3 of 7

    Family memberships are one of my favorite gifts ever, but if that's a little out of your price range, single tickets are also available. Visit your favorite theme park or museum website to make your purchase at any time.

  • Daily Deals 4 of 7

    Check out Groupon or your favorite daily deals website for fun, local activities. You can buy and send it to friends & family by email or print it to give yourself. Spa days, photo gifts, lessons, roller skating, and more awesome family fun.

  • Movie Tickets 5 of 7

    Movie theaters never close — ever — so you can stop buy and pickup movie gift cards or tickets, and give the gift of movie choice. I love when I receive movie passes because I get to choose the movie myself!

  • Redbox Gift Cards 6 of 7

    Give the gift of a movie night at home with Redbox gift cards. You can have gift cards sent by email, print them to give yourself, or buy individual promo codes — all online at any time of day or night.

    Check out Ticketmaster or Live Nation to buy tickets for games, comedy shows, concerts, or other events. Bonus points if you buy your own tickets to attend together! I love when a gift gives me the chance to create memories instead of clutter.
