For one reason or another you might not be able to get all your Holiday shopping done until the last minute. You want to have some kind of game plan before you decide to do last-minute shopping. Just going into a store with no idea can lead to frustration and might make you buy a random gift that no one would like. Here are some great gifts that you can get at the last minute for anyone on your list.
A gift card can work for anyone.
Gift cards can be a great present for anyone of any age. If you know a place that they like to shop get a gift card for that place. If you don’t know if they shop at a particular store you can get a gift card to a mall or to a store, such as Walmart or Target, that sells a large variety of different items. A gift card makes for a good gift because it lets the receiver get exactly what they want.
For the gamer, a different kind of gift card.
If you have a gamer on your list and you don’t want to buy a game they already have try getting a card that they can use for whatever system they play on. If they have a PlayStation a PlayStation Store Cash Card is perfect. You can get either one for $20 or $50 and they can be used for anything on the PSN Network. For Wii U/Wii users a Wii Points Card is the same thing. You can buy these cards at various retailers such as GameStop, Target, and online as well. These cards can be used to buy games or in game items that any gamer would love.
The newest movie on DVD or Blu-Ray for the movie buff.
This year, 2013, Christmas falls on a Wednesday. Movies in general are usually released for sale to own on Tuesdays so this is perfect for getting as a last-minute gift as the chances of whomever you are buying for has already bought the movie is really low. The best prices for newly released movies are at either Target or Walmart. Check their hours to see when they are open since this year the Tuesday before Christmas is Christmas Eve and stores will usually have different hours.
The beer lover will love a sampler.
If you are looking for a last-minute gift for someone who loves beer a sampler is a great choice. This is a great choice because if you don’t know their favorite beer or which particular beer they like or don’t like you won’t accidentally buy a whole pack of something they don’t like. Cost Plus World Market sells a Beers of the World 9-Pack of beer that would work just great. They also offer a Create Your Own-6 Pack as well where you can pick 6 different beers to make your own sampler. The sampler works out great and they might even find a new favorite with what you pick out.
