Let's Celebrate The Real Hero Of The Holidays—Last-Minute Gifts You Can Get With Expedited Shipping

Sure, things are holly & jolly but they’re also, like, really hectic. So, stop having a menty b over the fact that you haven’t bought any holiday gifts yet, because we’ve all been there. Also, fun fact: there’s an invention called expedited shipping to help save the day. Yes, actually, it *is* possible to find last-minute gift ideas that will get here before Christmas—promise.

Plus, so many retailers offer free (!) shipping (!!) because they know just how much of a mess the gift-giving season can really be. From fashion and accessories at Revolve and Shopbop to tech gear and stocking stuffers from Amazon, this list will help you navigate through all the consumerism clutter for the best gifts you can get in as little as 2 days. So, go watch a holiday movie or something, you deserve to relax for a sec.


TBH, this wouldn’t be a proper list of last-minute gifting if I didn’t include Amazon. The mega-retailer offers some pretty amazing shipping timelines, but there is a slight catch— you have to be a Prime Member. That said, they’re offering a one-week free trial for $1.99 and that shit will pay for itself. Here are some of our fave top-rated gifts.

Carhartt Men's Knit Cuffed Beanie
 $16.50 (was $19.99)

COSRX Glass Skin Starter Set
 $24.90 (was $30)

Kindle Paperwhite
 $124.99 (was $139.99)

Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Generation)
 $199.99 (was $249.99)

LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask


If you have a fashion & beauty lover in your life, I’d highly recommend taking a look at everything Revolve has to offer. Not only do they offer FREE 2-day shipping for the holidays, but it’s actually their year-round norm. Not to mention, they have a free returns policy and we all know that’s what the week between Christmas and New Year was made for. Here are some of the best-sellers that we love.

Beis The Convertible Mini Weekend

Honestly, this place is the destination for luxe anything. And while their shipping policies aren’t always free (usually $25 for next day), they are v reliable. They even offer some same-day delivery options if you’re in Manhattan. Here are some Net-A-Porter cult favorites that are currently on sale.

 $44 (was $54)

Kimeze Cat-Eye Sunglasses

Everyone loves a good Target run (especially us), but it can be just as fun online shopping when free 2-day shipping is involved. All you need to do is spend $35 (which, hello, if you’ve ever been to Target is wayyy too easy to do). While we’d buy the entire store, here are some of our top gift-picks for the 2023 season.

Stanley 40 oz Stainless Steel H2.0 FlowState Quencher Tumbler

 $355.50 (was $395)

As if Nordstrom wasn’t already our favorite place to shop for literally everyone, they also offer a great 2-day shipping option for $12 (or next day for $20). It’s definitely a destination to find gifts for mom, dad, and even yourself so load up that cart before clicking “proceed to check out.”

Another fashion brand we love for more than one reason—it’s both ~chic~ and trendy on top of having some of the best shipping offers on the internet. Shopbop has a free shipping option that guarantees your order to get to your front door within 3 days or less. They also have a partnership with Amazon Prime which allows you to utilize your Prime shipping benefits on their site (including the next-day option). Here are some of our favorite gifts to give or get.
