Hopefully you’ve done all your shopping for Christmas already.  If not, you still have a few days, but you’d better get on it quick!

Surprisingly, you can still order something online and get it by Christmas if you use Amazon Prime.  When you sign up for Amazon Prime, you get the option to have many items shipped with free 2 day delivery.  So if you’re still needing that last minute gift, you can hop on Amazon to order it and you should get it by Friday.
