Do You Need a Last Minute Gift?

Last minute Christmas gifts you can buy and give even on Christmas Day.

By Colleen Walsh Fong

 

Are you one of those busy people who realizes late in the day on Christmas Eve that you’ve forgotten to buy a gift for someone? Or did you receive a gift you didn’t expect and wish to reciprocate, but the stores—or your schedule—are closed? I have had the misfortune to find myself in that bind in especially busy years. And, let’s face it things seem to be getting more hectic for most of us with each passing year.

 

If you’re reading this today and you need a great last minute gift, don’t fret. Help is here! Ecommerce sites remain open 24/7/365 (366 in leap years!) And though many of them require sufficient lead time to send your purchases through USPS or other traditional mailing methods, ebook sellers can deliver an ebook gift immediately to anyone who has an email address. Recipients don’t even need to own an ereader! Ebooks sold via Amazon.com can be opened in a variety of ways, including through a FREE downloadable Kindle app. Instructions for viewing an ebook come in the email notification to recipients. I sent my own ecookbooks to several friends and relatives this year for Christmas and Hanukah gifts. You may also schedule delivery should you choose to purchase in advance of Christmas Day.

 

If you’re in a pinch, giving ebooks for Christmas may be a good solution for you. Here are some recommendations:
