There are few gifts that can be bought at the last moment either online or in a local big box store. One is the Amazon Kindle Oasis which is a really good e-book reader. It’s a lightweight product with powerful extended battery feature and is water resistant. Or simply buy an e-book if the person to be gifted already has a Kindle. The book can be bought and downloaded/ delivered instantly either by emailing the code or can be sent straight to the inbox.
If books aren’t something either of you fancy, then maybe Chrome cast is the next best option. Plug it into any TV and send content from any of the smartphone’s popular apps (Netflix/ Hulu/ HBO/ Spotify/ etc.) with the tap of a button. There’s no separate remote required as the phone becomes the remote. Most models are available at local Targets, Best Buys, etc.
There are many gift geek guides available on the internet, which rate the gift cards as one of the most favorable options. Gift cards for services like Netflix, Spotify or other services the friend is using can be thoughtful, practical and double beneficial thing to do. It is not only a gift for them but will save their money.
A good charging cable is next best buy. There is Anker’s PowerLine+ II cables that are awesome. The insulation is braided which makes it super tough and fancy looking. It’s a super practical gift and something that can be used all the time.
Or maybe a massive battery pack is better option. There doesn’t go a day where people don’t worry about phone batteries. Take the stress away and buy Anker PowerCore ($55) that has a 20,000 mAh battery inside.
