Christmas is fast approaching, and there's almost no more time left to buy gifts. Shipping times are too tight to ensure presents will arrive on time, it's cold and there are no parking spaces left at the mall. If you're desperately searching for the perfect last-minute holiday gift, this article is for you.
Amazon gift certificate: freedom of choice
Amazon.com has a ton of great gifts, but you're reading this because either you're not sure what to get or it's too late to have it shipped. So, why not a gift certificate? The recipient is sure to find something they like in the vast marketplace, and it's a better option than just handing someone a wad of cash. If you don't want to pick up a physical Amazon gift card from the store, you can send a digital one via email. With the second option, you can choose to send it with a custom photo for a personal touch. Cards come in several amounts: $25, $50, $75, $100 or a custom amount.
Google Play Store gift card: for those who always have an Android in their pocket
This is not a simple gift card because the purchases will all be exclusively digital. At first that might seem like a limitation, but in reality, it is a very original gift that gives the recipient the go-ahead to purchase fun or superfluous apps they might never splurge on themselves.
The recipient can use the gift card on the Play Store to stock up on music, movies, books, magazines, apps: everything you have always thought of buying, but never got around to actually purchasing. Surprise your friends with this gift, which you can get at many physical retailers or directly online.
