Buying a last-minute gift used to be easily remedied with a quick trip to your local store. But now that so many non-essential stores are closed, people are buying all of their gifts online and even that is hard to do at the last minute because retailers like Amazon are having such a hard time keeping up with people’s online shopping demands. So what can we do?
Obviously, making a mad dash into your local grocery store (because frankly, that’s all that will be open) to get your hands on a generic gift card is an option, but believe me, there are plenty of other easy and quick gifting options that will actually make it look like you put some effort into — even if you most certainly did not.
Because really, pursuing over the hopelessly picked-over selection of cheesy Hallmark cards and gift cards is a dead give away that you have no time management skills (*raising my guilty little hand*) or have forgotten about the giftee in question altogether. TBH, some of these instant gift options that you can deliver via email aren’t just decent last-minute options, but they’re also just cool gifts that people will actually use and love in general. From Lyft cards to a BoxyCharm subscription that keeps on giving, these surprisingly cool gift ideas will come to the rescue when it’s seriously crunch time.
