Last-minute shopper? Don't worry, tons of other Americans procrastinate on their holiday shopping too.
If you don't have time to make it to the store, online retail giants like Amazon can come in handy. This year, Prime members can shop until Christmas Eve with Prime free same-day and one-day delivery. We all hope to have our holiday shopping done well before Christmas Eve ... but the option to order gifts just a few hours before the big day can be nice.
When we release our 2018 gift guides, we make sure all prices are current. But, prices change frequently (yay, deals!), so there’s a chance the prices are now different than they were the day of publication.
Last-minute gifts under $25
For Amazon Prime members, you'll be able to get free two-day shipping (with no order minimum) up until December 22. (See more of Amazon's shipping calendar here.)
