Don't Freak Out: These 16 Last-Minute Gifts Will Arrive Before Christmas


Even the hardcore planners among us are subject to last-minute gift-giving snafus. The good news is that negotiating the pre-Christmas department store circus is no longer your only last-resort option: There are plenty of great websites that are committed to making sure your gifts arrive on time, at your doorstep,В in 48 hours or fewer. Forget the mall-you don't even have to get out of your pajamas. (Where's the praise hands emoji?)

With this in mind, weВ narrowed down the best virtual storefronts that offer last-minute shipping-in many cases, at very little (if any!) cost to you. And then we did you one better by hand-picking no-failВ gifts from each site. You have two seconds to click "add to cart," right?В Get to it!

Last day to order:В December 22. Two-day deliveryВ is free on all orders of $49 or more-you'll have to pay $7.99 if you don't meet that minimum.В
