The holiday gifting season is when we lose all perception of time. Between the stress of travel plans, non-stop work, and the impending new year, it's easy to wake up on Christmas Eve and realise you’re woefully unprepared — or, at least, you forgot a gift for that one friend who sends you presents every year. But are there even any good unique presents with next-day delivery during peak holiday rush time?
Thankfully, yes. In the golden age of online shopping, it’s easier than ever to hunt for presents with less than 24 hours at your disposal. Amazon Prime offers famously fast shipping, but some of our other favourite shops will get the goods straight to your doorstep the next day, if you order early enough. Several others offer same-day in-store pickup. We scoped out the best retailers offering next-day delivery or same-day pickup. With gifts as cute as these, no one will be able to tell you weren’t meticulously planning your presents for weeks. Trust us on this.
