This year looks different for a lot of us. With the holidays underway and shipping deadlines passed or looming, that means we're doing our holiday shopping earlier than usual. But we know old habits die hard.
It's easy to put off your gift shopping until the last minute, and you're not the only one to do so. According to RetailMeNot, almost half of Americans typically save their holiday shopping until the week before Christmas — sometimes even later!
If you still have a few people left on your gift list, don't panic just yet. Yahoo contributing editor Chassie Post has got you covered with her best last-minute gift picks. These brands not only have free shipping (if you order by 3 p.m. EST) but will also aim to deliver your gifts just in time for Christmas. And some have promo codes so you can treat yourself to some savings during checkout, too.
Keep reading for Post's picks along with more fun gifts rounded together by Shop TODAY. Just be sure to double-check shipping details before you check out since deadlines will vary based on retailer and item.
