'Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house not a...present was stirring, not even a stocking stuffer. Yeah, that's because no matter how much time you spend preparing for it, the holiday season always seems to go by in a flash. One day, it's November 1, the next it's December 24. (If that's some kind of Santa Claus magic, no thank you, sir.) So it's totally understandable if you've still got a few last-minute gifts to grab because you (a) haven't found the perfect present yet, (b) tend to procrastinate, or (c) just plain forgot (eek!).
But before you go into meltdown mode—it's too cold for that, anyway—remember the beauty that is Amazon Prime. It's chock full of last-minute Christmas gifts that are so awesome (I'm talking smart-home devices, people!), no one will know you waited till the last minute.
That's right, the Amazon elves and fa-la-la-la-la-free-two-day-shipping have got your back on this one. So, without wasting another second, here are the 36 best last-minute gifts for literally everyone on your list:
1. For your workout buddy: High Waist Fleece-Lined Leggings
At $25 a pair, you and your running pal can hit the pavement in matching warm and fuzzy fleece-lined leggings. Plus, with nearly 400 five-star reviews, you can rest assured they'll last her all winter long.
2. For your coffee-loving coworker: A Clever Mug
If your work bestie literally runs on Dunkin' (or whatever their preferred source of caffeine might be), they'll love this cute gift. And if it doesn't inject a dose of cheer into a blah office, nothing will. Bonus: It doubles as a perfect White Elephant gift if you "forgot" to pick one up.
3. For your bestie: Oversized Sweater Dress
