Last minute gift ideas, that aren’t a cop out

Leaving your gift shopping until the last minute isn’t a sign of weakness. It’s a super power.

Some people mightn’t cope at the prospect. You, on the other hand, are a cut above the rest. Why ponder over a prolonged period of time when you can confine your stress into a few short days—or hours?

Having a little pressure on your case nudges you towards making decisions more efficiently. And with the mastery of online shopping, it’s never been easier to browse and buy without the added headaches of finding a park, wading through queues of people and actually finding *the product* you were after physically in stock to purchase. Don’t you just hate that last one?

Even your online shopping becomes more streamlined. Shipping estimates become a barometer on which stores you can buy from to receive the goods in time. And gift cards and ‘click and collect’ merchants become the Christmas miracles you didn’t know you needed.

But if you’ve found yourself out of luck, out of time and wondering what options remain in the name of Christmas gifting, we’ve got some ideas that let you shop last minute with ease but are in no way, shape, or form—a cop out.

Gift something that can’t be wrapped

The only thing that’ll be rapt this Christmas is your significant other (or parents, or siblings, or children) when you tell them you’ve booked them a trip somewhere… Access exclusive discounts and raise funds for your chosen cause when you book flights, accommodation, packages and more at Wotif through Rewardhub.

Treat them the way they like to treat themselves
