Every year, no matter how much time you spend preparing for it, holiday season always seems to go by in a flash. (Seriously, where does December even go?!) So, it's totally understandable if you haven't exactly crossed everyone off your gift list because you (a) haven't found the perfect present yet, (b) tend to procrastinate, or (c) just plain forgot (eek!).
But, before you go into meltdown mode—it's too cold for that, anyway—remember the beauty that is Amazon Prime. It's full of last-minute gifts that are so awesome (I'm talking smart home devices, people!), no one will know you waited till the last minute.
Yeah, the Amazon eleves and fa-la-la-la-la-free-two-day-shipping have got your back on this one. So, without further ado, here are the 35 best last-minute gifts for literally everyone on your list:
For your coffee-loving co-worker: A Clever Mug
If your work bestie literally runs on Dunkin' (or whatever their preferred source of caffeine might be), they'll love this cute gift. And if it doesn't inject a dose of cheer into a blah office, nothing will. Bonus: It doubles as a perfect White Elephant gift if you "forgot" to pick one up.
For the expectant parents: "Best Gift Ever" Onesie
They're going to take a million pics of their little one's first holiday anyway, so you might as well make sure the kid's dressed to the nines, right? (Especially since you'll likely be seeing allll those pics on social media...)
For your bestie: Compass necklace
Show your BFF how much they mean to you—no matter how close or far away they might be—without having to say a single word. They're sure to think of you every single time they put it on.

Your cat-obsessed pal will love this kitty-covered makeup bag that can fit all their essentials. (Because crazy cat lady, who?) Even if their mascara collection isn't five tubes' strong, they can still use the handy case to store other toiletries, or even pencils and pens (or catnip? LOL).
For the new homeowner: Echo Dot
This may just be the perfect last-minute gift because it totally doesn't seem like one (I mean, you ordered this weeks ago, right?).

For the person who needs some peace and quiet: Bose Noise-Canceling Headphones
Noise-canceling headphones are the perfect gift for anyone who just can't with all the craziness this holiday season.

You.
