At the start of the holiday season, our good intentions to cross everyone off our shopping list early are plentiful. But then November turns into December, delivery windows stretch to a scary January 1 or beyond, and “sold out” stickers are a dime a dozen—especially as the final days of the Christmas countdown officially creep in. Instead of panic buying something at a pharmacy around the corner, consult our list of the best last-minute gifts you can still get your hands on.

After scouring the web, we rustled up a plethora of eleventh-hour ideas you won’t be embarrassed to present: gift cards that feel intentional, unique subscriptions that digitally deliver, and crowd-pleasing products that promise to ship in time to be tucked under the tree. Some sites are offering free expedited services along with sitewide discounts, while others will cost you a little something extra for souped-up shipping and handling. Whichever route you choose to take, be warned: Many of these best last-minute gifts have shipping cutoffs that expire imminently, so don’t dillydally.

Doré Gift Card

Dore Gift Card Green
Digital Gift Card, Doré

Gifting beauty products can be a risky affair, since it can be such a personal part of a daily regimen.
