Last-minute tech gifts to save the dayRunning out of time? You can still be the holiday hero with these last-minute gift ideas -- with no need to leave your home!
Okay folks, I don't want to panic you but you are almost out of time on your holiday shopping. So let's get real here, you need gifts and you need them faster than a fat man can shimmy down a chimney. Well the CNET elves are here to help. If you cannot get to a store in time, electronic gift cards can be sent through email or consider giving a few months of access to a subscription service. Spotify is popular for music. And Moviepass is also hot this year. It's like Netflix, but for first-run films inside of actual movie theaters. Amazon can save you in a pinch. Prime Now gets items delivered to your doorstep in 2 hours. Just browse through primenow.amazon.com. And that quick delivery service is only available in 32 metro areas for Prime subscribers. Speaking of Prime, you could just give someone a Prime subscription. It's a way to get the bundle of Amazon perks. Like free shipping and access to the streaming library of music, movies, and eBooks. And if the person already has a Prime subscription, they'll get the Amazon credit. To be more personal you could gift a specific digital book through Amazon, iTunes and Google Play. And on iTunes, you can also send someone a digital album or even an app. If you want to give a specific video game, well, Amazon and Game Stop sell digital download codes. And steam is good for PC gamers. For the person who doesn't want more stuff why not give an experience using Groupon or Livingsocial. And for the person who always wants more stuff there are subscription surprise boxes for literally every interest. Geeks may be familiar with Loot Crate. But there's also services for beauty addicts, babies, fashionistas, foodies, fitness buffs, even cats can get their own box. I'm sure Whiskers will be so thrilled.
