The sinking feeling in your gut. The cheap excuse to go upstairs. The sound of glass breaking, your body rolling off the grass, the car door slamming, the engine roaring, the tires squealing, the gas station the only place still open for anything even remotely resembling a gift…! Luckily, those Homerian moments are now a thing of the past, thanks to the internet. No matter how late you are, no matter how badly you need something great for the holidays, you can get it online, and in some cases immediately. Here then are the life-savers, the relationship-savers, the sanity-savers – the last minute gift guide! Apple Store gift card If you’re shopping for an Apple fan, there’s no going wrong with a gift card to the Apple Store. The recipient can use it towards their next IPHONE, IPAD, or other Apple device, or for an accessory for one of their current devices. And with the Apple Store app for IPHONE, you never even have to leave the house to purchase this awesome gift! Apple Store app – Download now iTunes, App Store, iBooks gift certificate If they’ve got all the iOS devices they need, and it’s too late to look into accessories, worry not — content is king of the last minute gifts. Your special someone can never have too many apps, games, music, movies, TV shows, or books to enjoy. You can either gift them yourself (here are a ton of best app picks), or better still — get them a gift certificate so they can pick their own treats. What’s great about the gift certificates is that you can purchase them directly from your IPHONE in the App Store, iTunes, or Apple Store app. Apple Store app – Download now Netflix, Hulu Plus, Slacker, Audible subscription The real gift that keeps on giving, whether it’s audio or video, a subscription can keep your special someone entertained throughout the year. Netflix – Buy now Hulu – Buy now Slacker Personal Radio – Buy now Audible – Buy now Amazon gift certificate Amazon has a ton of digital content all there own, but they also have old school media — paper books, plastic CDs and Blu-Rays, games that come on cartridges… Gift certificates let them pick just exactly the goods — real or virtual — they want, and Amazon will deliver it straight to their door or their device. Even better, you can send Amazon gift cards directly from the Amazon Mobile IPHONE and IPAD app! Amazon Mobile – Download now Starbucks, Tonx gift card Almost everyone loves Starbucks and will be ecstatic to receive even just $5 to the popular coffee chain.
