Gift-giving is fun, but actually acquiring gifts for everyone on your list is a chore: That’s why I made this list of things you can buy online without waiting for it to ship to your house. Just realized you need a gift for someone you’re going to see in an hour? No problem!
These things are particularly great for any breast cancer patients or survivors on your list and I’ll tell you why below ….
Amazon Home Services
If you know someone is going through a tough time, particularly breast cancer treatments, helping them out with housework is a huge gift. While you might not have time to go over yourself, you can hire someone to give your loved one the help they need.
Amazon now offers everything from house cleaning to TV mounting to plumbing and electrical work! Get all the details here
Audible is great for everyone, and you can give 1, 3, 6 and 12 month gift memberships to anyone on your list and they’ll get credit for one free Audible book each month. I love to listen if I am not able to sleep — I just pop in my headphones. But it’s also great for commuting or listening to while getting treatments or waiting for appointments. You can float away to another place, even if it is only for a little while. If they are already a member they get their credits up front!
Amazon Kindle Unlimited Membership
If you know someone who loves reading, then this Kindle Unlimited Membership is for them. You can buy it for yourself or give it as a gift. Best part is they don’t need a Kindle to use it — they can read books on any device including their smartphones or tablets.
As Amazon puts it, “With a Kindle Unlimited subscription, you have access to over one million titles in the Kindle Store, including books, audiobooks, and magazines. Using your Amazon account, you can browse and borrow up to ten titles and access them from any Amazon device or Kindle reading app, even while travelling. There are no due dates.”
If you have both a Kindle and Audible, like me, you get a discount on Audible if you buy the Kindle membership first. Get it here
Gift of Amazon Prime
Do you know someone who is still living without the amazing service that is Amazon Prime? You can give 3 month or year-long gift memberships and let the people you love enjoy FREE 2-day shipping! This is great if you or someone you love just doesn’t have the time or energy to get to the store, especially with winter setting in. Some other benefits of Prime include:
- Watch thousands of movies and TV shows with Prime Video
- Stream millions of songs and thousands of playlists
- Get free Kindle e-books
- Access to unlimited photo storage
- Exclusive access to deals like Prime Day
- Ability to apply for the Amazon Credit Card and get 5% back on Amazon and Whole Foods purchases
