Listen: When it comes to holiday shopping procrastination, we get it. Gift-giving can be stressful, time-consuming and, above all, expensive—especially when you’re playing Santa for your family, friends and loved ones! But with just nine days left to go until the big day (yes, you read that right!), your chance to find a thoughtful gift that will actually arrive on time is quickly dwindling—and no one wants to run around on Christmas Eve (sans maybe Rudolph).

To help rid you of your holiday stress, we’ve put together a list of the best last-minute Christmas gifts you can still get delivered, all of which are at a discount, no less! From items that can be shipped directly to your recipient to gift cards that will arrive via email, we’ve snooped around the web to spot all the best sale gifts any recipient would be stoked to receive. Without further ado, check out 15 presents you can still grab in the eleventh hour before Santa arrives! 

1. Exclusive MasterClass courses taught by celebrities, chefs and athletes

Surprise a loved one with the site's complimentary annual membership, but make sure you move fast-—before the sale ends.

Looking for an awesome gift for the person who has everything? MasterClass is currently offering a limited-time deal that makes this purchase a no-brainer. Right now, you can grab two memberships, normally $180 apiece (or $360 together), for the price of one. That’s a 50% discount! When we tested this service out, we were pleasantly surprised by all that it had to offer. Classes are available on a wide range of topics (cooking, acting, photography and even confidence) and led by experts, such as Anna Wintour and Gordon Ramsay, who will talk you through their respective crafts, giving you or your giftee a rather personal and informative lesson.

2. A scrumptious gift basket from Harry & David

Personally, I'd be stoked to receive this Moose Munch.
