One thing movies actually paint an accurate portrait of is the mall around the holidays: jammed parking lots, long lines, and hoards of people fighting over the season’s most popular items. But if you’re trying to find the perfect gift for a loved one by December 25, you might feel like there’s no other option. 

Well, worry not. There is another way to conquer gift shopping that won’t require a visit to the overcrowded mall: Amazon. The mega-retailer has millions of items available with two-day shipping that’ll ensure your gift reaches your doorstep—or a loved ones—before Christmas, so long as it’s ordered by December 22. And if that feels like too many numbers and days to track, Amazon has even simplified the ordering process by putting an on-page tracker on every product listing to inform you whether or not it’ll arrive by Christmas.

Of course, scouring through Amazon’s listings to find the holiday gifts your loved ones will actually want this season can be tedious and take time. To make your life easier, here are the best last-minute gifts you can still score on Amazon, including comfy shoes, headphones, luxury skincare, smartwatches, leggings, and more.

Vitamix 5200 Blender Professional-Grade


Think of the Vitamix as the gift that keeps on giving. The sturdy professional-grade blender is built to last a lifetime and will help your loved one create healthy recipes for years to come. The performance motor is powerful enough to pulverize leafy greens and grind down nuts into smooth butters, while the blades can channel friction heat to turn cold ingredients into warm soups in just six minutes.

Garmin Vívoactive 3 Music GPS Smartwatch


This brag-worthy gift combines the best parts of a fitness tracker, including heart rate monitoring and preloaded sports, with the perks of a smartwatch, like making payments right from your wrist and music storage for up to 500 downloaded songs. The seven-day battery life is also a serious perk that makes Garmin’s newest model standout from its competitors.

PMD Clean Pro RQ Smart Facial Cleansing Device


Every skin care guru in your life has likely seen their favorite celeb scrubbing down their skin with a silicone brush followed by a quick crystal rolling. This smart facial cleansing device combines both of these trends into a sleek handheld anti-aging device that vibrates up to 7,000 times per minute, leaving skin cleaner and improving the absorption of topical skin care products.

Orolay Women’s Thickened Down Jacket


The viral Amazon Coat, a.k.a. this trendy Orolay jacket,  is one of Amazon’s most wished for items for a reason; it keeps you super warm without looking like an oversized sleeping bag. Available in six colors to match every wardrobe, the fashionable jacket is perfect for cold weather thanks to a giant fleece-lined hoodie and insulating duck feather down. 

Adidas Women's Cloudfoam Pure Running Shoe


While these shoes are designed for comfort and support, they’re still stylish enough to wear on a daily basis without feeling like your feet are trapped in clunky, orthopedic shoes. In fact, reviewers actually compared these best-selling shoes to a “comfort pod for your foot.” Who wouldn’t want that? Though the Cloudfoam sneakers may not arrive until after Christmas for non-Prime users, Prime members can rest easy knowing these will be at their door before December 25 (so if you haven’t signed up for your free trial yet, what are you waiting for?)

ONSON Blackhead Remover Pore Vacuum


The holidays are a great time to give your friends and family the weird yet effective gifts they wouldn’t ever buy themselves—which is what makes this Pore Vacuum the perfect present for the beauty junkies in your life. It has three different suction levels to completely clean out pores and exfoliate dead skin, leaving behind a clear, radiant complexion.

Bose SoundSport Free Truly Wireless Headphones


Regular gym goers will love that these Bose earbuds stay firmly in place during even the sweatiest workouts, while the integrated dual microphone will appeal to busybodies always on the go. Between the built-in GPS tracker and included charging case, we’re not too surprised these headphones already racked up over 4,000 reviews. Amazon Prime members, or anyone who signs up for a 30-day free trial, can guarantee these will get to them by Christmas. If you’re not a Prime user, keep in mind that the black and orange colorways may arrive at a later day. 

Amazon All-New Echo Show 5


Smart homes might have been a figment of Disney’s imagination in the 90s, but now they’re quickly becoming a reality. A smart hub like the Echo Show 5, is the easiest way to control the abundance of smart items around your home with voice control or automated routines. Of course, it also brings its own savvy features, including a camera (with a physical privacy shield), a smart touch screen, and a personalized clock face that make it the delightful adoration for a nightstand.

HSI Professional Glider Ceramic Tourmaline Flat Iron 


Despite topping Amazon’s list of best-selling hair straighteners, this mega-popular professional flat iron will still arrive at your doorstep by Christmas. Built with ceramic tourmaline plates to eliminate frizz and increase shine, the one-inch straightener evenly distributes heat onto your strands and leaves you with a sleek, straight ‘do in no time. Along with  dual-voltage technology that allows you to use it abroad, it even includes personalized heat settings up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit so it’s safe for use on all hair types.

Mario Badescu Facial Spray Duo


This two-pack of the celebrity-approved Mario Badescu facial spray will be the perfect stocking stuffer this holiday season, with options to divide the spoils or gift the entire set to one person. The multi-purpose spray can be used on both your hair and skin for a quick hydrating boost and comes in two seperate scents: aloe, herbs, and rosewater or aloe, cucumber, and green tea.
