21 Last-minute Gifts You Can Buy on Jet That Will Arrive by Christmas


Time is running out to get the perfect holiday gift for everyone on your list, especially if you’re relying on two-day shipping to get it before Christmas — though Amazon doesn’t have to be your only option. Jet also offers two-day shipping, though not everything on the site is eligible for expedited shipping. So even though you can find deals on highly requested gifts — like the kid-approved FurReal Tyler, the Roarin’ Tiger, which is currently 17 percent off — it can be tricky to tell if it’s going to get to your house on time or not. So we did the heavy lifting for you and found the best last-minute gifts, for every type of person, that you can buy on Jet and that are eligible for two-day shipping and will also arrive by December 25.
