10 Decent Last-Minute Gifts From The Drugstore Or 7-Eleven
Christmas is nearly upon us, so any decent holiday shopper should have all their presents bought, wrapped, and sitting proudly under their trees.

Toys

Spotted at: CVS Price: $5.99–$14.99 Stuffed animals, electronics, board games — you can find all of this and more at your nearest drug store. Head to the toy aisle for a respectable selection of goodies for boys and girls of most age groups.

Gift Cards

Spotted at: Rite Aid, CVS and 7-11 Price: $5 and up We know gift cards are sometimes regarded as the lazy way out, but trust us, it gets even lazier: Instead of trekking all the way to the mall to buy a gift card from a friend's favorite store, swing by the pharmacy first. There's usually a huge display of gift cards to choose from, and the cashier can load up the balance with however much you see fit.

Bargain DVDs

Spotted at: 7-11 Price: $2.99–$4.99 When push comes to shove, a stack of hastily purchased DVDs can make a decent holiday gift for a friend or family member. Did they like "Borat" or "Inglorious Bastards?" Or would they prefer something more family friendly, like Ben Affleck's 2004 Christmas flick "Surviving Christmas?" It doesn't matter right now; just buy them all. You can get all three movies with a $20 bill and still have money leftover for wrapping paper. READ: Is There A 'Love Actually 2' In The Works?

A Magazine Subscription

Spotted at: Rite Aid, 7-11, CVS, Newsstands Price: Varies A single magazine barely qualifies as a gift. But a magazine subscription is the gift that keeps on giving, long after you've left the Christmas party. Pick out a periodical that you think your giftee would like, buy it, then rip out the subscription card and mail it right away. (If you can't get your hands on stamps, just mail it as soon as you can.) When it comes time to exchange presents, give the magazine to your loved one with a card that explains the rest.

Coffee/Mugs/Coffee Makers

Spotted at: Starbucks Price: Varies You can walk into any Starbucks in the country and buy a sack of coffee, but why stop there? They also sell teas, CDs, insulated travel cups, mugs, and in some locations, French presses and coffee makers. READ: 10 Great Gifts For Caffeine Freaks

Luxury Spa Robe

Spotted at: CVS Price: $19.99 Robes, slippers and bath accessories are frequently gifted around the holidays, and it's no wonder why: They're always in stock at the drug store. Pick out something plush for a family member who needs pampering, then move along to the next person on your list.

As-Seen-On-TV Gadgets

Spotted at: Rite Aid Price: $9.99–$19.99 Your loved ones might not think to purchase a Bacon Wave ($9.99) or an Ove'Glove ($16.99) off the TV at 4:30 a.m., but that doesn't mean they wouldn't put them to good use.

Mobile Phone Accessories

Spotted at: 7-11 Price: $2.99–$9.99 If you need a stocking stuffer for someone who owns a cell phone (which is pretty much everyone), head to the dark recesses of your nearest 7-11. In addition to accessories like earphones and car chargers, they offer cases adorned with all kinds of logos. READ: 10 Great Gifts For Tech Geeks

Perfume

Spotted at: Rite Aid Price: $19.99 Got a niece who loves smelling nice and/or iTunes? Good, because her favorite recording artist almost certainly has an affordable fragrance on sale at the drug store. READ: Must-Have Gifts For Makeup Maniacs

Booze

Spotted at: Any neighborhood liquor store Price: Varies Who wouldn't love a fine bottle of their favorite spirit on Christmas? Stop at your nearest liquor store (or drug store, if you live in a state where those sell alcohol), and pick out a nice bottle of scotch or a drinkable wine. Some brands even come with boxes or bows this time of year, or they're packaged along with drinking glasses. READ: 15 Great Gifts For At-Home Mixologists
