Last minute gifts

It’s Christmas Eve. You haven’t forgotten anything, have you? What about that gift that you were supposed to buy? Or maybe you have a surprise guest coming to your Christmas party? Whatever the situation, these last minute Christmas gifts are life-savers.

Gift cards
Gift cards are one of the most popular choices for presents. Savvy shoppers can take advantage of the post-Christmas sales to make their money go further and choose something that they really want. If the thought of heading to the shops fills you with dread, then Australia Post offers a one-stop gift card pick-up option. With cards from over 40 major retailers, you’re sure to find the perfect card for everyone. For more information, visit Australia Post.

Gift certificates
If you like the idea of choosing a gift but have run out of time, RedBalloon offers you the chance to send instant gift certificates by email. You can choose from traditional gifts such bottles of wine to something a little more adventurous – perhaps a balloon flight or flying lesson? For more information, visit RedBalloon.com.au.

Paypal has also branched out to offer various options for last minute gifts. You can send vouchers, magazine subscriptions, wine and arrange experiences and pay for them all via your Paypal account. For more information, visit Paypal.com.

Homemade coupons
Giving someone a book of personalised redeemable coupons, for things such as a cake, a lawn mow or a much-needed hug can be a fantastic stocking-stuffer. You can design your own, or if you need a few ideas the Kodak website has a tutorial complete with templates.

Spare gift
Lastly, stick a bottle of wine or box of chocolates under the tree and if you don’t need to use it, you’ll have something to look forward to on Boxing Day!
