Essential Guide to Last-Minute Gift Ideas for Everyone on Your List
Whether you're perpetually punctual or a lifelong procrastinator, time is sometimes not your friend. At some point, we all experience the face-slap realization that, oops, you need a gift right away. During the holiday haze it's easy to fall beyond on the shopping list, or maybe you simply forgot about a birthday or hostess gift - and you don't want to show up without a gift in hand. Don't push the panic button, as we have last-minute gift ideas for everyone. Find your speediest gifts right here.

Splurge on a special lesson
From golf lessons to learning to fly, consider last-minute gift ideas that give your loved one some real skills.

Set up a subscription that's just for fun
Magazine subscriptions make easy last-minute gift ideas to finish off your Christmas list. For grownups, consider a niche magazine that makes a good read every month. Kids can get their own age-appropriate magazines, too - and getting mail makes any day feel like Christmas for a child.

Give the gift of adventure
You have less than a week to go, but that doesn't mean you must settle for a gift that's less than thrilling. Choose last-minute gift ideas that are one-click away from a planned rafting trip, car race, or other adventure.

Cruise into a gift at the last minute
Impress loved ones with the gift of a cruise ride. It's a last-minute gift that will turn into a long-lasting memory.

Think about their favorite foods
Look for yummy options from pie to pizza to deliver their foodie cravings to their door.

Give a gift that keeps on giving
Monthly club memberships make perfect last-minute gift ideas that won't look like an afterthought. Give anything from flowers to neckties and you'll be sending some love this holiday, next month, and beyond.
