Are you feeling the pressure to get the perfect gifts for people this holiday? Unsure of what or where to get those ideal gifts? Well, you’re not alone.

It is completely normal for people to be experiencing the pressures of shopping during the holiday season, but this year definitely takes the cake.

According to a survey conducted by SlickDeals, more than 50% of Americans have been experiencing the stress and anxiety surrounding product shortages, shipping delays, and the rise in costs in merchandise.

While many companies have alerted their customers ahead of time about stock shortages and have advised people to place their orders as early as November, it can still be challenging to shop around this time of the year.

Here are some last-minute gift ideas that don’t require shipping of any kind:

  1. Take care of dinner with a subscription to Hello Fresh
  2. Watch all of your favorite childhood movies with a subscription to Disney+
  3. Learn something new with Masterclass
  4. Practice your meditation skills with Headspace
  5. Gift them seasonally with an Alltrue sustainable subscription box
