Gift Guide: Last Minute Amazon Prime

Okay, so you didn’t do any shopping yet. Remain calm and take a deep breath. While you have the option of dealing with the mall and all the underwhelming gifts it has to offer, there’s still another way you can go: Amazon Prime. With a Prime account, you can still snag some pretty stellar gifts that will arrive before Thursday. Here are some solid gifts you can still get.

Prepara EVAK Food Storage Containers

These EVAK food containers are way better than any glass jars they have on their kitchen counter. The twin valve system helps force air out so food stays fresher way longer. $25

littleBits Smart Home Kit

With this kit from littleBits, you can turn any household object into an internet-connected device. Turn on the AC with you phone? Done. Hit the lights from the comfort of your bed? You can do that too. Make some electronic circuits and transform your home. $250

GLITCH Playing Cards

For a deck of cards far more interesting than your standard Bicycle set, check out these eye-straining GLITCH Playing Cards. All made in the USA, each card will make you thankful you’re playing poker and not dealing with a computer issue or a frozen video game. $14

Shun Higo Nokami Personal Folding Steak Knife

Shun makes some of the most stunning kitchen knives on the market, and this clever steak slicer draws inspiration from the classic Higonokami pocket knife. The tang allows the user to open the high-carbon blade with ease, and the razor-sharp edge makes easy work of even the toughest cuts. $100

Schrade Axe with Fire Starter

For the outdoorsman that likes his gear to pull double duty, get him this Schrade Axe. Not only is it small enough to tote around easily, but it actually includes a fire starter built into the handle. $38

The First World War in Colour

This book will knock the socks off any military history buff on your list. It features a collection of rare color photographs taken during WWI by a collection of pioneers working on autochrome technology. It’s literally like nothing they’ve ever seen before. $40

Jawbone Up Move

For a more affordable and discreet activity tracker, consider the latest device from Jawbone. The Up Move clips easily to a belt or pocket, and tracks nearly all the data a more expensive fitness monitor would. $50
