You’ve waited until nearly the last day possible to pick out some Christmas gifts, did you? Now you’re worried about what you’re going to get your friends and family members. Not to worry, we’ve got your back.

We have compiled a list of great products, from brands we trust, that will make the perfect last-minute gift for everyone. Just don’t tell them you waited, goofball. We can keep a secret.

First things first

The first thing you are going to need to do is sign up for an Amazon Prime account. This way, you get free two-day shipping that’s guaranteed to arrive in time for Christmas just so long as you order before December 22.

Two-Day Shipping (FREE with Amazon Prime)
Order as late as midnight EST / 9 p.m. PST (varies by item) Sunday, December 22

Note that Amazon Prime accounts can be canceled at any time you want but after your 30-day free trial it costs $79.99 per year. Actually, moms and students get a discounted plan so check that out if you haven’t yet!

Unless otherwise noted, these gifts are under $20 each.

Should you absolutely run out of ideas and have no clue as to what your friends want or need, this one works in a pinch. Actually, you can order these and have them emailed to you contacts within minutes. It doesn’t get any more last-minute than this, but it works!

For what it’s worth, it’s possible to have them delivered via Facebook or printed out at home.

In addition to selling Amazon gift cards, you can also scoop up brands like Starbucks, Regal Entertainment, Applebee’s, GameStop, Kohl’s and others.

Targus Stylus

Perfect gift for your friends or family members who own a tablet or Kindle Fire. Toss it in the pocket or purse or keep it at the office for those times when you need to mark up a document or draw mustaches on photos.

Galaxy S4 Wallet Case

Great protection and utility in one bundle, it’s exactly what the Samsung smartphone needs to stay safe and secure. Slim and low profile, it comes in at least eight color options.

Belkin SurgePlus Mini Travel Swivel Charger with Dual USB Ports

Whether your loved one is a jet-setter or a college student, this handy gadget will prove to be beneficial.

21neZs3b4zL (2)SanDisk 8GB microSD Card

It ain’t the fastest memory card on the block but it might be more storage than they already have. Most phones have 8GB or more internal storage with the option to expand via microSD. And, with so many adapters and readers out there, this also helps with digital cameras, MP3 players, and other gadgets.

6’ MicroUSB Cable

Fact: you can never have enough MicroUSB cables. It’s like science or something, too. There’s nothing wrong with tossing a few of these around the house. Keep a couple on deck for when guests drop by and need some juice. The best part is that these are six feet long; no need to crawl behind the couch.

Chances are good that someone you know owns a Samsung smartphone. Why not hook them up with a pair of official headphones from Samsung? Features volume control, microphone, and answer/end key and soft earbud rings.

Car charger

As great as battery life has gotten over the last few generations, GPS can still be quite the drain. Put a charger in your car and top off on the way home from work.

Tablet Stand

This portable stand can fold up and travels with virtually zero footprint. A great companion accessory for 7-inch devices like the Kindle Fire HD or bigger tablets like the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1. Watching movies, reading books, or simply browsing emails – whatever the case, this makes it much easier.

Toshiba Canvio 500GB Portable Hard Drive $50

How about dropping half of a terabyte of storage into a stocking? Compatible with USB 2.0 or 3.0, it’s small and able to withstand the occasional drop. Just because you can put everything in the cloud doesn’t mean that you have to. A great way to backup pictures, videos, and other media.

AmazonBasics Accessory Bundle

A goodie bag of must-have accessories, this one includes a stylus, a 2.1A USB wall charger, a USB 1.0 AMP DC charger, and a Micro USB to USB charging cable.
