(CNN) – Still haven’t finished your holiday shopping? Well, time is running out, but procrastinators aren’t out of luck just yet!

According to a report from Nielsen, one in four Americans, most of them men, hadn’t bought any gifts as of Dec. 18.

Here are some tips, courtesy of Time.com, on the best ways to cross everyone off your list in record time without them knowing you waited until the last minute.

Gift cards may seem impersonal, but, according to the National Retail Federation, it’s topped wish list for nine years in a row.

If you’re looking for a more expensive gift, televisions are the way to go. Stores run major sales up until the days before Christmas.

Needing to ship a gift? Sign your loved one up for a service, such as food-prep services from Blue Apron or Hello Fresh, or beauty boxes like Ipsy and Birchbox.

You could also purchase them an experience, like skydiving, and mail the ticket to them.

For the television and movie lover in your life a subscription to Netflix, Hulu or HBO Now will have them thanking you all year.

If you need to ship a package in time for Christmas day, the overnight shipping cutting at FedEx and UPS is Dec. 23. FedEx offers same day shipping 365 days a year, including Christmas.
