“Some gifts are big. Others are small. But the ones that come from the heart are the best gifts of all.” – Tinku Razoria

Leaving gift shopping to the last minute is a common practice for many. It often results in selecting the first thing you come across and not the thoughtful gift you’d planned to give. 

While choosing a gift when you’re down to the wire doesn’t leave you with a lot of options, there are many great gifts you can choose online just in time for the birthday celebrations. Here are 4 last-minute online gifts you can purchase for the celebration of that forgotten birthday:

Gift cards
Although they’re not the most unique, gift cards offer the recipient the gift of choice. All you need to do is purchase a multiple choice gift card instantly redeemable online or from your recipient’s favorite store, and let them choose what they want from there, on you. 

The eGift card is the most ideal option as a last-minute gift as these are sent the moment you make your purchase, for instant delivery worldwide via text or email.  

Service subscriptions
Service subscriptions are a great way to show someone how well you know them even if you forgot their birthday until the last minute. For example, if you’re shopping for a gift for a music fan, a Spotify subscription will give them the freedom to enjoy tunes without ads. Using Gifted’s free platform to send your gift also allows you to personalize your message using easily customizable templates. 

Selecting a subscription to a service you know the recipient uses and likes will help make the gift more personal and less like something generic picked out of convenience. 

Streaming subscriptions
Movies, TV shows, documentaries, or reality TV; there’s something for everyone when it comes to entertainment. You can give the gift of entertainment with a subscription to any of the streaming services that offer the kind the recipient enjoys. 

Although there are lots of streaming platforms with free content, some popular content is exclusive to paid platforms. Again, Gifted makes it easy to share gift cards that can be used to redeem all kinds of entertainment options, from Amazon and Disney to Showtime and Hulu. A subscription to any of these will come in handy for weekends at home when they settle down to catch up on their favorite shows. 

Donation to a charity in the recipient’s name
What do you give the person who has everything? Rather than buying them a random gift, you can send them something unique instead - such as a gift card to make a donation to a charity close to their heart. Use Gifted.co to share charity gift cards so your recipient can make their donation, with choices ranging from American Cancer Society and Charity on Top to Unicef and World of Children.
