So you’ve waited too long to find the perfect gift, forget someone on your list, or just found a new friend you want to impress with a killer gift. It’s on the power grid, and since there are many trips and family celebrations in the last days before Christmas, you don’t even have time to run into the store and get a scented candle. We’ve all been through that.
The good news is that the internet helps here. From digital gift cards to online subscription services, we’ve summarized the best last-minute digital gifts for your family and friends this year.
There are literally hundreds of streaming services on the market so everyone can see something online. We have listed the most popular options below. In our comprehensive overview of the streaming landscape, however, you will find further opaque options.
Online games services
Extending your loved ones’ online game subscription for another year is a great gift, or you can simply buy a gift card at a game store of your choice.
Audiobooks and e-books
Thanks to readers and streaming audio services, digital books and audio books are as ubiquitous as physical books, if not more. With Amazon, you can easily give away Kindle books by either printing out a voucher or sending the recipient an email on a specific date. The same applies to audible audiobooks and digital comics from Comixology. Just click “Give As Gift” (Audible), “Send As Gift” (Comixology), or “Buy For Others” (Amazon) on the page, and you can choose a shipping method before checking out.
