Our Very Last Minute Christmas Gift Guide Of 25 Things Under $25

OK team. Gather around. You’ve got just a couple of hours of shopping time left and you can bet that at about 7pm on Christmas eve, you’ll realise you’ve forgotten to pick something up for that nephew you only see every second year.

Business Insider has a Plan B for this situation, courtesy of our colleagues at Shopstyle.

Here are a bunch of gifts for women, men, kids and the home, all under $25, which you can order online, then on December 25, explain the present is on its way while blaming tardy postal delivery.

But the good news is some products, from Shopstyle partners such as The Iconic, have same day delivery, so you can jump online now and they’ll have it to you by December 24.

Of course it’s also a handy gift guide for that next birthday too.
