Was there a time when you needed last minute gift ideas and didn't know where to turn? Were you buying gifts for your loved ones? Some people rush to work on the last day of the office gathering, suddenly remembering that they had secret Santa duties, and they need a last-minute gift for that.

There's no need to panic even if you haven't bought a gift for that special someone. There are all sorts of last-minute gift ideas for Christmas. The Internet can really help you find solutions for Christmas gifts. You can always find something for everyone. A gift certificate to major store would be a hit. Plus, it's suitable for both genders and all ages.

You can buy online gift cards to places like eBay,, Target, Best Buy, and more. Most people who are in a panic for a last-minute Christmas gift usually stop by a 24-hour drugstore, such as Walgreens or CVS pharmacy. All that you're going to find here are cheap substitutes for a special gift that you could have purchased online instead.

When you buy an online gift certificate, the company will usually give you the option of having an announcement emailed directly to the recipient. Or, print out the purchase details, stick it in an envelope, and give that as a Christmas gift.

There's no reason for anyone to know that the gift you purchased is a last minute one. If you don't have access to the Internet at the exact time that you need the gift, you can always stop by your local grocery store and find gift cards there. Tailoring your gift card to the person's interests would be better.

You can pick up a $50 gift certificate to Lowe's or Home Depot for the do it yourself man. Another great option, for a sports fan, might be to get a gift card to the MLB shop online, where they can purchase their choice of fan gear.

You can give teenagers a gift card to Best Buy. Things they can buy here include movies, video games, consoles, etc. This is also a great option for grown ups.

Another perfect type of gift car is a Visa or American Express gift card. Your recipient can use it anywhere it's accepted since this gift certificate works like a debit card.

Also making a great last minute gift idea is cash. Kids and teenagers love cash even if it sounds impersonal. They would rather get money instead of getting something they don't like from an uninformed grown up. In a gift greeting card is where you can stick the cash.
