It's Christmas Eve and if you still haven't finished your holiday shopping, there's still hope. (Besides gift card deals of course). Amazon is extending many of its deals through the holiday and many Amazon gifts can still ship and arrive by Christmas day.

Items that will ship by Christmas include everything from the inexpensive Echo Dot to our favorite Bose headphones. There is a catch — you must live a city where Amazon offers same-day delivery via its Prime Now delivery service. 

Another caveat: Amazon Prime members must spend $35 or more to take advantage of the 2-hour shipping. Non-Prime members will pay $9.98 per item. (Remember, you can always sign up for a free trial (opens in new tab) if you're not already a member). You'll also need to sign into your account to see your expedited shipping options. (If you're not signed in, you will not see the "arrives before Christmas" option). 

So ditch the crowded department stores and check out what you can still buy from the comforts of your home.
