15 Last-Minute Gifts From Costco That Won't Actually Get Returned

by Lindsay E. Mack

It's scramble time for final holiday shopping, but this store has your back. The last-minute Christmas gifts from Costco are perfect for almost everyone on your list. A visit to their website or warehouse might be your last stop this holiday season, especially since their Christmas Eve hours are pretty generous.

If you want to order gifts from Costco and have them arrive in time for Christmas day, then read the fine print about their shipping policies. Some gifts must be ordered by 11:59 p.m. PST on Wednesday, December 18 in order to qualify for Christmas shipping. You get an extra day to order a lot of the jewelry gifts at Costco, but those need to be ordered by midnight on Thursday, December 19.

But if you're not going to make those deadlines, and there isn't a local Costco you can duck into, don't fret. There are still other options for you. Costco sells many online gift certificates that you can send off immediately. All you need is the recipient's email address, and there is a gift card for almost every interest out there. Basically, whatever you need this holiday season, Costco can help you out before the December 25 deadline.
