9 Extremely Last-Minute Gift Ideas for Procrastinators

In a world where two-day shipping abounds, somehow you ran out of time. It’s OK, you’re not alone. Whether you forgot about your second cousin, or you succumbed to choice paralysis and waited too long, there’s still hope. If you’re in a crunch, these gifts can be delivered in minutes.

Along with some quick thinking, you could even find a way for your recipient to unwrap them.
