We’ve all been there. Maybe you left someone off your shopping list, maybe Thanksgiving was busy, or maybe you just procrastinated. Whatever the reason, you need a last-minute Christmas gift.

Thankfully, we haven’t quite reached holiday shipping cut-off dates quite yet—at least for Amazon. You’ve got until Dec. 15 to shop on Amazon if you’re not a Prime member. If you are, you can shop the site all the way up to Dec. 22 for items with Prime two-day shipping.

So if last-minute gifts are what you need, we’ve got a few universal Amazon Christmas gifts that’ll be perfect.
