Hell, maybe you didn’t forget anything and just like the thrill of waiting until the last minute. Whatever the case may be, you live in a world where fast-as-hell shipping exists.

Know someone who 100% will have “get back in shape” as New Year’s Resolution? No shame in their game. Anyone trying to improve their lives is a person worth getting something useful for. If they don’t have a Fitbit already, or they’re operating with an old model, do them a favor and give them an upgrade. A number of newer Fitbits are actually on sale ahead of Christmas. You can choose from the fancy Amazon-enabled Fitbit Versa 2, the Fitbit Charge 3, the Versa Lite, and more.

You can read up on each model to see what is best for the person you’re shopping for. A Fitbit tracks your steps, sleep, heart rate, and more. It can be used to track workouts, from running, to weight lifting, to cardio-intense workouts. Fitbit products give you hourly reminders to get up and walk around (in case you work at a desk all day) and give you goals to try and keep you on target.

If you have the money to buy someone a gaming system, at the last minute, good for you. People have their preferences, so hopefully, you know what theirs is.

Then go for a Nintendo Switch. You can get a bundle that includes Mario Kart 8 Deluxe with Gray Joy-Con.
