Great Last-Minute Gift Ideas

While your friends and family have been planning and collecting gifts for the last couple months, you’ve been spending your weekends doing groceries, putting up the Christmas lights, making delicious meals in the slow cooker, watching football on Sundays and you may or may not have also watched copious hours of Game of Thrones. But you’re not the least bit concerned, you’re a pro at this, you succeed every year. You work well under pressure. Because your strategy for procrastinating on all your holiday shopping makes sense after all: you’ll be getting the absolute hottest deals as stores push great sales leading right up to Christmas.

So here are some great last-minute gift ideas:

1. Gyft Cards

Gift cards galore.

Gyft is an app that lets you buy last minute gift cards from just about any store including Amazon, Target, Best Buy, Sephora and Apple. Just head to the Gyft storefront page on Yroo, pick your card, decide the amount, and then send it to your friends and family digitally. This is not only a great way to shop last-minute, but it’s also great if you have friends and family far away.

2. Cards Against Humanity

Cards against humanity game in action.

Speaking about cards, this is a great game that’s sure to make the holidays memorable! And the best part is that you can order it from Walmart and then pick it up at the store location of your choice if you don’t have time for shipping.

3. eBooks

Even if it’s a last minute gift, a good book can be one of the most thoughtful gifts ever. Amazon’s Kindle Books or can be ideal when you have no time to shop. Just go online, select the book and buy it as a gift.

4. Balsem Essentials Kit

The balsam essentials kit for men.

This is from Frank & Oak’s new grooming line called Balsem. The kit comes with shampoo, moisturizer and shave cream, and a cool case to carry it all in.

5. Ugg Australia Throw

We just adore the UGG plush throw for warming up on chilly weekend mornings or tossing on the draping over the couch as an accent. We have 7 stores on Yroo that carry these throws including Ugg so be sure to use our filters and compare prices so you get the best deal!

6. Netflix Subscription

Family watching Netflix together.

If you really don’t have any time, and you’re out of ideas, why not get someone in your family a Netflix subscription for a year? Just sign up with their email address, use your billing information, and make the password something like “merrychristmas”.

A great (and possibly the best) part of this master strategy is that you’ve been adding items to your collection on Yroo so that any time items dropped in price you were alerted! And while Santa climbs down the chimney on Christmas eve, you’ll be sound asleep dreaming of all the great deals you got.


Merry Christmas!
