The Best Last-minute Gifts on Amazon Prime
There are no sweeter words than “free two-day shipping” when a special occasion looms on your calendar.
If fighting over the last hot tech item in stock or waiting in hour-long check-out lines sounds like your worst nightmare, buying directly from Amazon is your best bet. And if you’re not already a Prime member (which gets you free, two-day shipping on pretty much everything you could ever need), we recommend it — especially if you’re not a plan-ahead kind of shopper.
Whether you were caught off-guard by a generous co-worker or simply forgot to pick up something special for your mother-in-law (it happens to the best of us), we pulled together the best Amazon Prime gifts you can buy at the very last minute for the globetrotter on your list.
