Are you in crunch time and realized you forgot someone on your list? Worse, are you dreading going out knowing that a simple trip into the store means hours of standing in lines? No worries, here is a list of ideas to help you find some great gifts for less and without all the chaos and hair-pulling that a trip to the store can bring this time of year!
One great idea that you might want to consider is “Print Your Own” gift cards for Amazon.com! We have done this before and love it as you have a full card (see how it prints so you can fold it) with a personalized greeting and gift card for your recipient. Plus, your recipient is able to choose just the perfect gift!
To get started making your own gift card, CLICK HERE to go to the Amazon gift card center!
Don’t forget they also offer mp3 downloads, Kindle books, and many other great options as well. Plus, although you aren’t getting a discount on the purchase of the gift card, your recipient will get some of the best deals out there for whatever they are looking for!
Buying a gift certificate through Ebates will let you not only get cash back (click on Gift Cards category on left side of site for a full list of retailers) but if you are a new member to Ebates, you will also get you a $10 Target, Macy’s, Walmart or Sears after your first $25 purchase! This additional $10 gift card will be mailed to you a few days after purchase. Make sure to CLICK HERE to sign up for Ebates (its FREE and easy) and then go to the Gift Cards category. By shopping for your gift cards this way, you may not be getting a discount on the actual card, but when you consider the cash back and additional $10 gift card, it really comes out to be a great deal in the end!
Now two of our favorite places to shop online are also wonderful for last minute Christmas shopping! That is, buying a 50% off gift certificate (it’s an ecertificate that you print off, so you don’t wait for mailing) to local restaurants, services, amusements and more! So this is perfect for spa treatments, eating out gift, car services and even fun entertainment in your local area.
The place to get these are Groupon and Living Social! For more details, just check out our previous post!
You can not only get a certificate for a certain deal, but did you know you can buy a gift card so that your recipient can take advantage of any deal they want that’s offered – which means that “hard to buy for” person on your list just might not be as hard to buy for as you originally thought! 🙂

Earlier today, we shared the amazing ALL YOU magazine subscription offer for buy one get one free subscriptions! This makes them only .83 per issue, which is AWESOME deal and great gift for a frugal minded person!
Finally, you can consider getting a great deal on popular magazines! Amazon offers subscriptions to every magazine and pretty much every one of them is discounted and dozens are even offered for $5 for the year! You may just find a great magazine deal that would fit and interest for someone on your list from photography, gardening and more! Anything!
Just wrap up the magazine confirmation as a fun way to present it!
