I woke up in a panic on Saturday night realizing that Christmas is next week! Why does it always seem to sneak up on us? I guess I work well under pressure though because I was an ordering maniac the next morning. Thank goodness for Amazon. It is the best thing to hit the internet. It fulfills just about every shopping need, and coupled with a prime membership, it is always a life saver. I honestly think to myself that if I have to be last minute, there is always Amazon. That could not be more true for last minute holiday gift needs!
When I logged onto Amazon this morning the headline was “4 days left to get it by Christmas”. Considering where we are at in the week, four days is a lot of time! So if you have procrastinated shopping for your holiday gifts, do not worry because I am sharing a round-up of perfect last minute Christmas gifts from Amazon that will arrive on time.
All gifts rounded up below qualify for Amazon Prime two-day shipping. There are some that even qualify for next day shipping indicated by an asterisk *. To make our lives even easier, many of the items below also qualify for next day shipping if you spend $35 or more!
Last Minute Christmas Gifts from Amazon
One can never go wrong with gifting a book. I mean this is how Amazon got their start after all! Think about your gift recipient’s interests and I can guarantee there is a book that covers it! It is always the perfect gift. Here are some of my current favorites:
Dogs // Homebody // Sunday Suppers // The New York Times Explorer // Terrain // Paris Street Style: A Guide to Effortless Chic // Where Chefs Eat // Stupendous Science (love this for kids!) // More with Less // 75 Years of DC Comics
Tech and Gadgets
They are the things we do not necessarily buy for ourselves but make the best and most well used gifts! Who doesn’t love a new gadget? If you have a baker in the family, and they don’t already own a Kitchen Aid, then it is a must with such a great deal below! I just ordered the portable chargers for my kids as stocking stuffers. The Dyson hair dryer is all the rage right now and is a beautiful gift for any of the women still left on your list.
Nespresso Machine // Movie Projector* // Wireless Headphones (I love these for running!) // Dash Rapid Egg Cooker // Instant Pot // Dyson Hairdryer (this just sold out for Christmas delivery from Amazon but available at Nordstrom here for Christmas Eve delivery!) // Portable Charger // Kitchen Aid Mixer // DNA Test Kit (the perfect gift for family!) // Zippo Multi Purpose Candle Lighter
Beauty and Home
My favorite gifts to give and get fall under beauty and home! Women can never get enough of pampering products-add these natural sponges to a stocking! I love giving trays as gifts and they are perfect for filling with baked goods to make for a beautiful holiday gift! Water bottles are like socks. You can never have too many of them and they are always getting lost! To make them more personal, add a gift card, candy or even socks to it!
“Hermes” Cashmere Throw*(three colors available for two day delivery) / Cashmere Eye Mask // Natural Sponges // Louis Vuitton Catwalk Coffee Table Book* // Hydro Flask Water Bottle // Lipault Luggage // Mason Pearson Hairbrush // Rattan Tray // Sage Smudge Sticks // Herbivore Luxe Hydration Set
And finally I should mention my best selling item from Amazon this year has been this “Celine” inspired necklace here. I promise you it will be the best $10 you could ever spend on a women’s gift! And of course it qualifies for Amazon Prime two-day shipping!
Do You Have Amazon Prime?
If you don’t already have an account, you can sign up for a 30-day Prime Free Trial. Prime members enjoy free two-day shipping and exclusive access to music, movies, TV shows, original audio series and kindle books. Free two-day shipping (sometimes even quicker) alone makes it worth it to me! In some cities (like Chicago!), you can even have access to Prime Now, exclusive two-hour delivery from establishments like Whole Foods. Amazon Entertainment is a great added bonus to having a Prime account. Shows like the “The Man in the High Castle”, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and Tom Clancy’s “Jack Ryan” are all Amazon original favorites. And as of last week, you can now synch your Amazon prime account to your Xfinity serviced TV! You can learn more about Amazon Prime here.
Thanks for stopping by!
