Face it: sometimes, shopping for presents during the holidays gets away from you. You might be down to the wire. It’s too late for even Amazon to save you, and you’re really not thrilled to go out and shop in person. What is a last-minute holiday gift shopper to do?

Go online at the local drug store, of course.

Pharmacy shops these days are chock full of items way beyond health, beauty and household essentials. And you don’t have to look far to find perfectly gift-worthy items that don’t scream “last-minute.”

Even better, you can get your hands on these giftable goods safely via curbside pickup and/or delivery service options that all of the drugstores on this list offer.

CVS offers same-day delivery through DoorDash and Rite Aid offers the same service through Instacart. Just be prepared to pay a delivery fee between $3-$5, plus a service fee that is typically 5%-10% of your order total. Instacart has also been seen to charge a markup of 15%-20% on items, so it’s a pricey option, but when you’re running low on time, it gets the job done.

Walgreens allows customers to order online or use the Walgreens App to pick up orders curbside or via the drive-thru in as little as 30 minutes (but we hope you’re not that last-minute). Walgreens also partners with Postmates for home delivery in as little as an hour, which includes a delivery fee. You can potentially save on fees for both delivery services by signing up for monthly memberships, which are $9.99 a month.

To save you even more of the time you don’t have now, we’ve scoured the drugstore websites to find the best ideas to help you finally cross the last items off your list, from grandparents to babies and everyone in between. Take a look at these items you can get if you need a quick gift.
