I know, I know. I understand. I’m one of them. That special breed of person that can’t seem to get their holiday shopping done until, say, the day before the special day hits. You know who you are, and there’s little benefit to denying it.
That being said, I’d love to try to help you guys along a bit. Sure you can brave the stores and really experience the true meaning of Christmas (or something like that). You could also order some goodies online from these sites and actually have it shipped to you just in the nick of time! It’s completely your call…3 days until Christmas (2 until Christmas Eve) and…you’re already 2 days into Hanukkah (you’re lucky there’s 8 days, no?)…get on the ball people.
- Gifts.com women’s gifts and Gifts.com men’s gifts – You have to check (hover over) each gift itself, but for example, “Order your gift before 12PM EST on December 23rd for December 24th Delivery to ensure delivery by Christmas.”
- Buy eGift certificates or daily deals. More than 100 retailers offer gift certificates that can be bought online, then e-mailed to the recipient. Many retailers – such as Amazon.com – also offer printable gift cards, so the perfect present is just a click-and-print away. Consumers can also buy restaurant or Daily Deals vouchers and give those as gifts at sites such as groupon.com. Even American Express offers this service! Most of these you can simply email to the recipient.
- 1800flowers.com – you can type in your zip and when you need the gift by (12/24 is still good) and it tells you all the gifts you can purchase to be delivered in time! Flowers, plants, stuffed animals, candles, wreathes, food/candy gift baskets, and more!
- redenvelope.com - this wonderful site is still delivering items all the way until 12/24. Pick up some chocolate covered strawberries, luxury bath robes, jewelry, art, whiskey glasses and a lot more. All very unique, well made, and just in time.
- Toys R Us – you can still have online orders shipped Express if you get it in by today. You can also order and pay online and just go and pick them up at a local store, which is still a much better option that going in “naked.”
- Fossil sells a lot more than watches these days. You can also pick up clothing, bags, shoes, wallets, and other accessories for both men and women. Best part, all orders over $100 offer FREE next day shipping!
- You can also go the entertainment route as well. Who doesn’t like movies and music?? iTunes, Google Music, Netflix, and Blockbuster are still great options.
- If you’re looking for a high end foodie…there’s not many places better than Dean & Deluca. Order today or tomorrow and you can still get next day shipping.
- Get a good deal on just about anything under the sun at Overstock.com. They are highlighting a bunch of items that can be delivered by 12/24.
- Give the gift of pampering – Get an online or printable gift certificate at SpaFinder.com. They offer everything from spas to salons to yoga and pilates gift certificates at places all over the world for discounted prices.
I hope this helps out a bit. Good luck and happy hunting! The clock is ticking…
Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah shopping to all, and the all a good night!
