Absolute Last-Minute Gift Ideas for Those Who've Waited Until the 11th Hour


You've waited until the absolute LAST SECOND to buy your friend or family member a Christmas present and now you're up you-know-what creek without a paddle.

Thank God you have me.

I have a few last-minute tricks up my sleeve that will get your gift straight to your intended recipient, without you spending a fortune on shipping.

Endless.com, for example, offers free overnight shipping on all new styles, including this sharp Invicta Stainless Steel Men's Watch (Endless, $69.99). This watch retailed at $425.01 so it's a fantastic deal!

Read on to see more last-minute deals that will arrive by the 23rd!





MACMAC Cosmetics is offering free overnight shipping today only with the code XMAS. I used the opportunity to restock my StudioFix and pick up a few new makeup brushes, but you can choose from all kinds of cute compacts and makeup bags, like this Dazzle the Lads Lip Bag (MAC, $36), which includes lipstick, gloss, and liner in one very fashionable MAC bag.


KinectGamestop is offering free overnight shipping through 12/23 at noon on all orders over $75. Perhaps that makes the Kinect for XBox 360 (Gamestop, $149.99) that your kids have been wanting a possibility after all!

Flowers.comAnd when all else fails, SEND FLOWERS. Flowers are a great way to send a last-minute gift without paying more than usual for delivery. 1-800-Flowers.com offers a wide selection of arrangements with guaranteed next-day and even same-day delivery, including this festive Holiday Lights Centerpiece (Flowers.com, $49.99). Use the code XMAS15 and get 15% off your order!

Another option is to send an e-gift card, something I've (shamefully) done before.

Macy's gives you that option, and so does Amazon. You can save on shipping AND postage that way! Just enter the amount you want to spend and a printable version of a gift card will be sent to your giftee.

Ooh, and this just in! Neiman Marcus is offering free rush delivery so that your package will in time for Christmas, no matter how much (or little) you spend!

Have you finished YOUR Christmas shopping, ladies?
