Are you a last-minute shopper? You're not alone. Many of us procrastinate when it comes to holiday shopping.

And if you don't have time to make it to the store, Amazon has you covered. This year, Prime members can shop through Dec. 23 and get their items in time for Christmas. The deadline for two-day shipping is Dec. 22 and Dec. 23 for one-day delivery.

While it's best to have your shopping done well before Christmas Eve, it's still nice to have the option to order gifts just a couple of days beforehand.

So, if you're still checking a few names off your list, here are some great gift ideas on Amazon that will make it in time!

When we release our 2019 gift guides, we make sure all prices are current. But prices change frequently, so there’s a chance the prices are now different than they were the day of publication.
