Buzz Gift Guide: Last-Minute Butt-Savers!

Yikes! It's Christmas Eve! If there's someone on your list that you just plumb forgot, these suggestions for last-minute, easily obtained gifts in this last of my holiday gift guides just might save your butt.

Fandango Bucks are super easy to get ahold of — you just purchase them online and you can either print them out immediately to slip into a stocking, or send them via email. A lot of folks like to go to the movies during this last week of December, and Fandango Bucks make moviegoing extremely easy.

Netflix has a similar way to give a last-minute gift. You can buy a gift subscription online and then print out (or email) the confirmation to wrap up in a box (or a few boxes to make it look like a huge gift!) and give to your loved ones (who you forgot).

For the music lovers in your life, consider giving a gift certificate to iTunes. These can also be emailed or printed out, though you can also "gift" specific albums (or movies, or TV shows) to other iTunes members.

Magazine subscriptions (like one to Entertainment Weekly) are a nice way to quickly give a gift that keeps on giving. Plus, choosing a specific magazine you know your friend will enjoy proves that you put at least some thought into it. If you manage to get out to a newsstand today, grab one issue of the magazine and wrap it up with a note that says they'll receive the next one in 6-8 weeks.

For a more open-ended way to cover your hide, Amazon.com gift certificates pretty much guarantee that your forgotten friend or family member will be able to buy exactly the book/DVD/album he/she has been craving! These gift cards can be mailed, emailed or sent along with a festive e-card.

Great ideas for procrastinators like me :-) I just bought and printed a gift certificate for my gran from Simply Audiobooks. www.simplyaudiobooks.com They are like netflix but instead of getting movies by mail you receive audiobooks.
