If you’re reading this article, chances are you’ve been procrastinating at buying holiday gifts for everyone on your list. Well, there’s good news and bad news. The bad news is that many online stores won’t be able to get your gifts to you on time. The good news is there are still plenty of stores that can ship gifts in time for the holidays! So, we’ve done the work for you and put together a slideshow filled with awesome gifts that will get to you just in time. Click through the slideshow ahead and breath easy. We’ve got you covered.

This is the perfect gift for those who just moved in together, have a new puppy, or are bringing home a new baby. Amazon reigns supreme for last minute gifts because of their vast selection and quick shipping options.

UE Ultimate Ears Wonderboom Wireless Speaker, Target, $79.99
A wireless speaker that’s also waterproof is a gift nobody will be mad about. Not to mention it will cost you under $100.

Otherwise, order by 11:59 p.m. CST on Wednesday, December 20 for delivery by the 23rd. (See more of our favorite Target gift ideas here.)
Cylinder Iridescent Champagne Flute, CB2, $3.95
While CB2 has tons of sweet last-minute gift options, we love these simple champagne flutes that have a trendy twist.

Plus, with a super affordable price, you may want to stock up on a few to give out to last-minute friends and co-workers. These are yours as long as you order by the 20th.
Agate Cheese Board, Anthropologie, $78
Looking for something super cute at the very last minute? You can overnight a gift from Anthropologie on December 23rd, and it will still arrive in time for Christmas if you’re really in a bind.
