The best last-minute gift for gamers

$19.99 and $73.99 at Amazon

If you’ve got a gamer in your life who you’re shopping for this season then you probably already know that there’s no such thing as too many games. Rather than trying to find them a game they might already have, we recommend getting them a 12-month subscription to a Netflix-like game service, the 2 most popular being Nintendo Switch Online (for the Nintendo Switch) and Xbox Game Pass (for Xbox consoles and PC). The subscription for the Switch will get you access to over 100 NES, Super NES, and Game Boy games available to play instantly, right on your device, with more being added all the time. It also allows for saving your game data to the cloud and enables online play for some games. On the Xbox Game Pass side, that subscription includes access to hundreds of games including some high-profile day-one releases for brand new games by some Microsoft studios. It also includes access to EA Play games, like Madden, Need For Speed, PGA Tour, Battlefield, Mass Effect and many, many more. If you ask us, why settle for just one game when you can gift hundreds for either the same price (in the case of Game Pass) or much lower (in the case of Nintendo Switch Online).

The best last-minute gift for pet owners 

$39 per box at Amazon

BarkBox is an excellent gift choice for anyone with a four-legged companion. It comes once a month and is filled with toys and treats, customized to the size of your dog. Sure, the gift is more for the dog than their owner, but everyone with a dog knows that there’s no better gift than seeing your pup happy and they’re sure to be thrilled every time this subscription gets delivered. The treats are all-natural and the toys are varied and include “chew toys, toys with spiky balls, squeakers, and rope, plus toys for puppies and aggressive chewers.”

Depending on your love of cars and all things cars tires might not be the most exciting gift to receive (or give) but no matter your love or cars all drivers can appreciate the importance that good tires can have in driving performance and safety. And that’s why we think that they make a pretty good, albeit practical, gift. If you’re shopping last minute there are still good deals on tires to be found. Here are a few: 


Like tires, new tools might not excite everyone but they sure are handy to have around the house, even if you aren’t a professional contractor or tradesman. If you are, then you might love these tool deals for yourself or for others on your holiday shopping list:
