The Best Last-Minute Gifts to Buy Now


This year, the search for the best last-minute gifts feels particularly tricky, especially since so many delivery services are spread thin right now. But if you’re a smart shopper, there’s still a way to cop a perfect present without feeling beholden to those quickly approaching shipping cutoff times. Procrastinators, I’d like to introduce you to your new best friend: the buy online, pick up in-store option, which has in fact been a useful retail strategy over the last few months during the pandemic. As it pertains to the holidays specifically, it’s not only a safe way to shop for all of us but an easier one too. 

Several of the most coveted labels and popular outposts are offering this convenient option for the holiday season, including Nordstrom, Tiffany & Co., and Apple (hello, new noise-canceling AirPods Max). In some cases, you don’t even have to get out of your car to get your package because they’ll bring it right to you at the curbside. 

And don’t forget that there are indeed also a few retailers who are somehow still able to pull off two-day deliveries, like Amazon, and that there are also those who offer same-day delivery in select cities, like Net-a-Porter. Plus, digital gifts like streaming service subscriptions are always lifesavers when you’re down to the wire.

Time is ticking, but you’ll be in great shape come the holiday if you grab something chic for a loved one or family member ASAP. 

Below, you’ll find something special for everyone on your list, from those beloved fluffy Birkenstocks to Glossier’s glow-inducing serums. Read on for 33 perfect last-minute gifts to order online, pick up in-store, and save your sanity.
