Brilliant Last-Minute Gift Ideas for Anyone

posted in: Gift Guides, Holidays

For all you procrastinators out there – all is not lost.  Today, I hit the airwaves nationwide to share some of my favorite last-minute gift ideas.


Amazon Dash Buttons

We all love Amazon and know it’s a great online store for all your last-minute gifts.  Now they’ve made your gift-giving even easier with the Amazon Dash Button. Dash allows customers to order the products they use most with the simple press of a button giving them access to 100’s of products from 29 brands like Tide, Glad, Gerber, L’Oreal, Smart Water and more.

Added bonus? It’s Essentially free – pay $4.99 for the button but get $4.99 credit back with first purchase


Motorola Droid Turbo 2

If anyone on your list needs a smartphone, this phone is a must-have. It’s the world’s first device Featuring Moto ShatterShield™ – which is guaranteed not to crack or shatter. It also has a 48-hour battery life and turbo-charging that gives the device 13 hours’ worth of battery life in just 15 minutes. It features a 21–megapixel camera w/ rapid focus with zero shutter lag and HD video. The Droid Turbo 2 is Available exclusively through Verizon stores or online at Free overnight shipping through December!



Next on the list – giving the gift of safety! Canary is the all-in-one home security system that you control from your smartphone. It has HD video and audio, a built-in siren, and sensors for temperature, humidity and air quality. It auto-arms when you leave the house and sends alerts when activity is detected. If you receive an alert, you can view a live video stream on your smart phone and decide whether to sound the siren, call local authorities, or it might just be your kids and pets. You can also check in at any time to make sure your home is safe and sound.Finally, you can never go wrong with stock piling on batteries this time of year.


Rayovac Batteries

I love Rayovac batteries because they offer all the power and longevity of other batteries without the high price tag. Perfect as a stocking stuffer or companion gift with any battery-operated toy or device.   It’s always good to stock up for yourself while you’re at it!  The High Energy Batteries are great for standard battery-operated items and Fusion batteries are better suited for high drain devices.
