Good morning, good day, or good evening (I have no idea when you might be reading this so I’m just covering all my bases) and welcome to my post all about the best last minute gifts you can find for family friends! And the nice thing about this list is that it features plenty of actual gifts that you could buy for them, but it also offers the option to get a gift card to every item on the list today. But not just any gift card, one of our modern GiftYa gift cards.
If you haven’t used a GiftYa before let me explain real quick. They are in essence a gift card that exists in an all digital format. Now there’s a couple of awesome benefits to their digital form (such as making them impossible to lose or misplace) but since you are looking for last minute gifts I think one feature of their digital form will probably be the most interesting to you, and that is that fact that you can instantly send them to the recipient. All you have to do is pick out the GiftYa that you want, load the balance on it, and then as soon as you purchase it, GiftYa will text it instantly to the recipient’s phone. In just a couple of clicks you can have a gift card just appear in their pocket instantly. Which makes GiftYa a really useful tool when you need to find a great last minute gift.
But that’s enough with the introduction, I’ll get right to that list of great last minute gifts you can get for family friends right now. And as always thank you for clicking, and thank you even more for actually reading!
Grab yourself an Apple gift card by following the link!
The nice thing about getting an Apple gift card for your family friend is that Apple is such a ridiculously big corporation that having a gift card to their business ends up giving you a staggering amount of options. Not only do you have all the movies, tv shows, music, books, and podcasts available in Itunes or other digital Apple stores, but you can also use an Apple gift card on Apple hardware. So they could choose to use the gift card to get a couple seasons of their favorite tv shows or some new movies, or they can choose to use the balance of the gift card on a new Macbook, Ipad, Iphone, Beats, Airpods, or any of the other awesome products that have made Apple a household name over the past couple decades.
And it's the amount of variety you get with this card that I think makes it such a great last minute gift for family friends. Because no matter what they are into, they are going to be able to find something they like from Apple. Whether it’s a new phone or just the discography to their favorite band!

Get a Best Buy gift card instantly when you follow the link!
Best Buy is the country’s leading electronics retailer in the US with over 1,000 brick & mortar stores around the country. Which hopefully means there is one that is easily accessible for you. Because if there is, Best Buy can be a great place to find last minute gifts for anybody in the modern world. They have computers, smart phones, televisions, speakers, video game systems, the video games themselves, CDs, Blu-Rays and DVDs, and tons of electronic accessories as well. So you can stop in and get them a movie they love on Blu-Ray or 4K. Or you can get them a great pair of headphones. Or a portable battery pack. Or you can splurge and get them something really extravagant in the form of home electronics.
But hey, if you really don’t know what they might like, you can always send them a digital Best Buy gift card. And then they can use the card at Best Buys 1,000 stores or online at Best Buy’s website. And the nice thing about the gift card is that they can use it to get themselves some CDs or DVDs, or they can use the balance to get a big discount on a new TV or video game system. And it's that variety that I think makes a gift card to Best Buy a great option for a last minute gift for anybody’s family friends!

Grab a Barnes & Noble gift card by following this link!
If your family friend happens to be a bookworm of any sort then Barnes & Noble can be a really great place to find them a last minute gift. Barnes & Noble is the country’s largest book retail chain with nearly 600 stores around the country. And the nice thing about them being such a large chain is that it means that they have an enormous selection of different books at each and every location. So no matter what kind of books they like to read you’ll be able to find them at Barnes & Noble. They have everything from Roald Dahl and Dr. Suess to Kafka and James Joyce. The options are practically endless.
But if you find yourself overwhelmed by the options and just aren’t really sure what kind of book they would like, you can always send your family friend a digital Barnes & Noble gift card. And then that way they can do the shopping themselves and you can rest assured that you won’t accidentally get them something they already have or a book they won’t really enjoy. And they can use the gift card at any of Barnes & Nobles stores, or they can just go right online and order the books they want from Barnes & Noble’s website!

Grab yourself a Omaha Steaks gift card by following this link!
I think this option makes a really great choice as a last minute gift for family friends because it essentially just helps them get really high quality ingredients for their home cooked meals. You can send them a gift card to Omaha Steaks and then they can choose whatever they want from the website and have it shipped right to their home. And while they obviously offer high quality cuts of steak (as the name might suggest), steak isn’t the only thing they offer.
Omaha Steaks also has super high quality burgers, hot dogs, chicken, pork, seafood, sides, and even bottles of wine. So whether they just want to get some amazing steak and wine and have an intimate dinner at home, or they want to order everything they need to have a great backyard cookout, they will be able to get it from Omaha Steaks.

Get a StubHub gift card in just seconds by following the link!
Another great last minute gift option for family friends is a gift card to StubHub. With this gift card they can choose tons of different tickets to all sorts of great live events. Pro sports games, live music, standup comedy, ballets, symphonies, operas, and plays. And I would suggest you just get them some actual tickets, it can be really hard to know that they are going to have that evening free in advance without being really obvious about it. So to avoid accidentally getting them tickets to an event they won’t even be able to attend, just send them the gift card and let them pick out the perfect tickets themselves!

Another great option for a last minute gift for your family friends is by getting them a gift card to the movies. The trick to this one is to make sure you put enough funds on the gift card to cover the cost of the tickets, as well as, all of the snacks and drinks from the concession stand that complete the movie going experience. And then that way you have treated them to a relaxing night out and even have all the extra expenses that theaters tack on covered for them.
If you really aren’t sure what to get your family friends as a last minute gift then you can always go with a classic and treat them to a great dinner one night. You can take them out in person obviously, but if you can’t take them out in person you can always send them a gift card to their favorite restaurants. I’ll link a couple popular restaurants, but be sure to go to GiftYas website and search their city or zip code to see all the restaurants that have partnered with GiftYa in the area. There are tons of small businesses that have partnered with GiftYa on top of the thousands of national brands. So you might be able to get them a gift card to their absolute favorite local spot!
If your family friends work in any type of office environment then getting them some office supplies can be a great option for a last minute gift. Between Office Depot, Staples, Wal-Mart, and Target, I am sure you will have a business somewhere close by where you can get a wide variety of different office supplies. And then you can help make their day to day office routine a bit more enjoyable for them as a gift this year.

Amazon is a great place to find last minute gifts for your family friends because they have over 12 million different items for sale and they even offer 2-day shipping on most of those items. So you should be able to get your family friends all sorts of amazing gifts from Amazon.

But on top of that you can also send them with a custom message and pick out a custom photo to make the front of the card even better. And you could pick out a photo of a great memory you have with your family friend and make that the front of the card. And then it becomes a lot more heartfelt and thoughtful!
