Find perfect, last-minute holiday gifts at Walmart

Holiday shopping feels like something you have forever to do — until right about now. If you’ve waited until the last-minute, we’re totally with you. Fortunately, there’s still plenty of time to avoid handing out a stack of gift cards.

For those of us who work well under pressure and kind of enjoy staying up late wrapping gifts, Walmart still has an abundance of thoughtful items for everyone on your list, from your siblings to your co-workers.

Here are some ideas for getting through your checklist like you started thinking about this weeks ago.

Turn up the fun with a party speaker

Have a neighbor who brings everyone together? This Bluetooth, rechargeable wireless party speaker — with a snazzy LED light show — is perfect for playing holiday tunes or launching into a sing-along with a jack for plugging in a guitar or a karaoke microphone.

Make an avid reader’s ‘Wish’ come true

We all get a little sappy and nostalgic around this time of year. Indulge a writerly friend with Nicholas Sparks’s latest — a winter spin on a beach book set during the holidays. Prepare to cozy up with hot cocoa and have your heart strings tugged.

Slam dunk a gift for your sports-loving sibling

This over-the-door backboard has crowd sound effects (for when you’re not there to cheer them on) and a digital scoreboard (for some serious sibling rivalry after present opening). The hoop folds up so it’s not banging holes into walls when you’re sitting the bench.
