7 Last-Minute Gifts That Don't Need To Be Shipped

For when you can't wait on a shipping confirmation email.

Life gets busy — especially around the holidays — so instead of stressing about saving last-minute shopping until the week before Christmas, it’s time to get crafty and think about the kinds of gifts you can give that don’t have shipping deadlines.

The good news is, you don’t have to show up to your holiday party empty-handed. Though it’s too late to have some gifts shipped in time for your gift exchange, there are still plenty of last-minute gifts that’ll arrive in time that you can hand out to your loved ones.

The best part? You don’t even have to wrap these gifts. Whether it’s a little money toward their next vacation or one of the many subscription boxes out there, simply print out the receipt, voucher, or a pretty photo hinting what it could be and pop it in a fun Christmas card they’re sure to love.

No need to stress and sprint to the store. Just sit back, keep scrolling and shop these seven last-minute gifts that don’t even need to be shipped.
