I am presently doing some last minute gift shopping. I am looking for gifts that can be delivered in the next day or two. We are Amazon Prime members, so this should not be too hard to accomplish. One of the best things is, I can choose to have it delivered directly to the person I am purchasing it for. Cuts down on the extra time of getting it here and then shipping it out again. Many items have gift options, where they can wrap the item. I usually just choose the option to include a message.
I have already sent a package to my secret sister and we have a few other gifts shipping out today, that will arrive no later than Tuesday. My daughter even shipped a sort of gag gift to a friend in Florida! He fishes a lot and complains about the dolphins, so she sent a stuffed dolphin! It was supposed to arrive today!! Can't wait to hear his response!
I always check out the daily deals on Amazon, but it is really nice when you can find an extra discount. Slickdeals would be my next stop to see what Amazon coupons and deals are available on items I am searching for. Occasionally it is a benefit to check Slickdeals first, but sometimes I end up finding other things I don't really need.
Slickdeals has an App to help you quickly find the coupons and deals you are looking for. You can set up alerts when a new deal is available. There is even an extension that automatically applies available deals! Be sure to visit Slickdeals, and get the App. They have deals and coupons for many more sites and shops than just Amazon! https://slickdeals.net/coupons/amazon/
I have been scouring Amazon the last two days looking for a popcorn popper. I am one of those who checks reviews and usually won't purchase any item under four stars. I often choose from lowest price to highest price as well, although sometimes you have to wade through a lot of cheap, low rated products to find one I am comfortable purchasing.
Along with the popcorn popper we sent some Orville Redenbacher popcorn. I wanted to send a set of seasonings, but many were out of stock and would not arrive until January, so I am choosing to send a gift card to purchase seasonings.
For my Secret Sister, we had lists of items they liked, so I chose a set of Aloe infused socks and gloves. I have a pair of these and they are so comfortable. Her set arrived last week!
That is only a small portion of what I have purchased the past two months, and of course the rest of the family shops Amazon as well!! If you still are looking for the perfect gift, check out Amazon and Slickdeals! You might find you can meet that holiday deadline!!
