Remember last year when you promised yourself that you’d get all of your Christmas shopping done in time, so you won’t have to do a mad scramble to buy all of your gifts at the last minute?
If you’re reading this article, I’m guessing you probably haven’t kept up with that promise, huh?
It’s alright, though, because we’ve put together this handy list of last minute gifts suggestions that’ll make you look like a caring friend/family member, while hiding the fact that you’re a huge procrastinator.
Need to buy a last minute gift for a friend who is an absolute fiend for spooky movies? Then do them a solid and hook ’em up with a subscription to Shudder, a streaming service 100% dedicated to horror movies, TV shows and documentaries.
Got a mate who considers themselves a wannabe Gordon Ramsay but could use an extra hand in the kitchen?
Then hook them up with a Hello Fresh subscription, which will give them a box containing all the ingredients to make three meals for two people per week.
Hello Fresh are currently running a promo where the first box is only $35.93, so go get them a nice meal deal.
Is there a French word for the feeling you get when you buy someone a book, only to watch their expression bottom out to poorly hidden disappointment (there’s always a French word for these kinds of things)?
I’ve had it happen to me a couple of times and it sucks. So now I just buy them a gift certificate so they can grab that title they’ve been meaning to read.
Look, high chances are that the friend or family member you’re buying for already has a Dinsey+ subscription. If they don’t and they’re a long-time Disney fan, well, it’s high time you show them a whole new world.
If they’re a big Marvel fan, gifting them a subscription times perfectly with WandaVision dropping on January 15. Plus, it has every single episode of The Simpsons.
MasterClass is a streaming service that is overflowing with lessons and lectures that’re taught by experts in their field. They can have Stephen Curry teach them how to shoot and score like a champ, get tips on creativity from Vogue’s Creative Director Anna Wintor, or learn some sweet filmmaking skills from Martin Scorsese.
MasterClass are currently running a two-for-one deal on annual memberships, so that’s two gifts sorted instead (or an early gift for yourself, if you’re feeling it).
Do you have a mate or family member who loves a good drop of wine, but mostly limits their purchases to the budget aisle? You can help broaden their wine horizons with a Vinomofo subscription.
Vinomofo memberships start from $139 per month, and will have 12 assorted bottles delivered to their doorstep once a month. They’ll definitely owe you a wine and cheese night as thanks.
Prime is a gift that keeps on giving
With a subscription, they’ll get access to over 1,000 e-books with Prime Reading, and unlimited access to over 50 million songs with Prime Music. Not only that, but a Prime membership will also give them access to Amazon’s Prime Original series and movies, like The Boys and Borat Subsequent Moviefilm.
Plus, if they’re a big online shopper, they’ll get free, two business day delivery on their Amazon purchases.
Sports! Kayo is a streaming platform for the sport obsessive. Name a sport and they’ve got it. It’ll give them on-demand access to live games, both local and international, along with hundreds of hours of replays, panel shows and docos, like ESPN’s 30 for 30 series.
