Christmas is a couple of days away, which means your window is slowly closing to take advantage of expedited shipping. Planning ahead is always ideal, but sometimes life gets in the way of an option. If you’re on your way to a Christmas party and need to pick up a quick gift, check out our guide to last minute gifts to pick up on the go.
Hario Ceramic Coffee Dripper
Most large homeware stores have at least one decent coffee dripper. If you’re in dire straits, stop by Williams-Sonoma or Bed Bath & Beyond and grab one of these Hario pour-over ceramic coffeemakers. It’s a well-designed and easy-to-use gift that will always make a great cup of coffee.
The Hario Ceramic Coffee Dripper is available from Williams-Sonoma and costs $ 25.
Google Chromecast Audio
If you’re making last minute purchases for the audiophiles in your life, give them the new Chromecast Audio device from Google. It connects to every speaker set and can be wirelessly connected to any computer, tablet or smartphone.
Google’s Chromecast Audio is available through Christmas Eve for $ 25 and can be picked up at any Best Buy.
Woodford Reserve Bourbon
As the official bourbon of the Kentucky Derby, Woodford Reserve makes a great last minute gift. Common enough to be picked up at almost any liquor store, but at no astronomical price, it’s a bourbon that enthusiasts and novices alike will appreciate.
Woodford Reserve is available at any reasonably decent liquor store and will set you back about $ 40.

Umbria Collimartani Extra Virgin Olive Oil
If you’re on your way to a dinner party and want to pick up a last minute gift for the foodie in your life, consider giving them a bottle of olive oil. Opt for a single source virgin oil from Whole Foods or another grocery store. If you can get your hands on it, we particularly like this Umbria Collimartani Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Umbria Collimartani Extra Virgin Olive Oil can be purchased at Eataly and other grocery stores and is priced at $ 34.
David Salles How To See
When you want to give someone a book as a gift, choose something large and visual to display on their coffee table. David Salle’s new book, How To See, makes a great gift for anyone, regardless of their art history level, and is available for collection from a Barnes and Noble or general bookstore.
David Salle’s How To See is available for pickup from your local Barnes and Noble and costs $ 26.
