10 Last-Minute Gifts You Can Save Big On

My biggest flaw in life is that I wait until the last minute to do everything. I could come up with a million excuses as to why my holiday shopping isn’t done yet (i.e., waiting for that paycheck to hit, standing by for certain giftable items to go on sale, or placing blame on my cat who chewed up my credit card, making it unreadable for future purchases), but at the end of the day, the truth is that I perform best under pressure. 

Thankfully we’ve found the perfect hack to all of your last minute “oops, I forgot about that person” gifting. Gilt City, an online shopping and lifestyle site, has our backs. They offer a variety of unique gift ideas at some incredible prices that are almost too good to be true.
