  • MORE

Need a last-minute gift delivered on Christmas Eve? While shoving a few bills inside a holiday card may sound tempting, we're here to tell you that there's still time to take advantage of a few last-minute deals. Amazon has extended many of its best sales through the weekend and Prime members are able to get free same-day delivery if you opt for Prime Now delivery, which is available through 11:59pm on 12/24. If you're lucky enough to live in a Prime Now city, use coupon "10BEFOREXMAS" to take $10 off your first order and $10 off a future Prime Now order.

Below we've rounded up ten gift ideas for everyone on your shopping list with prices ranging from $30 to $100.

Get $10 off the Fire Tablet 7-inch

Regular Price: $49.99
Sale Price: $39.99

Why It's a Good Deal: Why settle for an off-brand Android slate when the most affordable tablet in Amazon's lineup only costs $40. It's not the fastest tablet in the market — performance is a bit sluggish and the battery only lasts 6 hours and 53 minutes — but at this price, it's hard to complain. Plus, it gives you access to Amazon's ever-expanding universe of multimedia content. It's also dead-simple to use and offers a sturdier design than cheaper $20 Android slates. It ships with free same-day delivery via Prime Now.

Save $30 on the Fire HD 8

Regular Price: $79.99
Sale Price: $49.99

Why It's a Good Deal: The 2017 Fire HD 8 is a great value, lasting an impressive 10 hours and 58 minutes on our battery test. It supports multiple user profiles (up to two adults and four children), which is helpful if you plan on sharing your tablet with other members of the family. Unlike the Fire 7, the Fire HD 8 packs 1.5GB of RAM and a better 1280 x 800-resolution. It ships with free same-day delivery via Prime Now.

Take $30 off the Fire Kids Edition Tablet

Regular Price: $129.99
Sale Price: $99.99

Why It's a Good Deal: Amazon knows how delicate tablets can be and, because of that, it's bundled a 2-year guarantee with its 8-inch Fire Kids Edition tablet. If your child breaks it, simply return it and Amazon will send you a new one. As impressive as that is, the tablet also comes with best-in-class parental controls and a year's access to Amazon FreeTime Unlimited content — a kid-friendly content service. Everything combined makes this Editors' Choice tablet the best kid's slate you can buy. It ships with free same-day delivery via Prime Now.

Get the travel-friendly Amazon Tap for $80

Regular Price: $129.99
Sale Price: $79.99

Why It's a Good Deal: The Tap is the portable version of Amazon's Echo, with a built-in battery that can last for up to 9 hours. Like its big brother, the Tap natively supports Spotify, Pandora, Amazon Prime Music, and a host of other services. An optional colored case protects it from bumps and drops when you're on the go. (As of 12/24, Amazon states this item will not arrive in time for Xmas).

Get the top-tier Kindle Paperwhite for $100

Regular Price: $119.99
Sale Price: $99.99

Why It's a Good Deal: The Paperwhite is the perfect device for the casual reader. The Editors' Choice e-reader has a sharp 300-pixel screen, built-in adjustable light, and an improved layout that makes it easier than ever to read e-books. Sure, Amazon has pricier e-Readers like the Voyage and the Oasis, but at $99.99, the Paperwhite strikes the perfect balance of performance and affordability. It ships with free same-day delivery via Prime Now.

Save $20 on Amazon's New Echo Speaker

Regular Price: $99.99
Sale Price: $79.99

Why It's a Good Deal: The 2nd-generation Echo is more attractive and more affordable than the first. Aesthetically, it's also a step up from the original thanks to removable skins and covers. As with other Alexa devices, the Echo can be used for everything from streaming to controlling other compatible smart devices. It ships with free same-day delivery via Prime Now.

Get the Fire TV Stick for $35

Regular Price: $39.99
Sale Price: $34.99

Why It's a Good Deal: If you're a Prime member, the Fire TV Stick is one of the best ways to get the most out of your membership. It lets you stream Amazon Prime Video and Amazon Music direct to your big-screen HDTV. You can stream any Amazon music you've purchased, even if you bought it as a CD. There are a few games and apps you can download, but the games shouldn't be the reason you buy a TV Stick. The rarely discounted Fire TV Stick is now just $35. It ships with free same-day delivery via Prime Now.

Get access to Alexa for just $30

Regular Price: $49.99
Sale Price: $29.99

Why It's a Good Deal: The Echo Dot is one of the least-expensive ways to give your home a digital makeover. It was designed with home stereos in mind, but it can also work without an additional speaker. If you know someone with an outdated stereo system, this hockey puck-shaped device is a great way to modernize their system on the cheap. It ships with free same-day delivery via Prime Now.

Get the Fire 7 Kids Tablet for $80

Regular Price: $99.99
Sale Price: $79.99

Why It's a Good Deal: The Fire 7 Kids Edition Tablet is a smaller and less powerful version of the Editors' Choice Fire 8 Kids Tablet. It features a 7-inch 1024 x 600 (171 ppi) resolution display, 16GB of memory, and up to 8 hours of battery life on a single charge. It's also $20 cheaper than its larger sibling. Otherwise, it packs the same CPU, camera, and 2-year worry-free warranty as the Fire HD 8 Kids model. It ships with free same-day delivery via Prime Now.

Take $25 Off the Kindle for Kids Bundle

Regular Price: $99.99
Sale Price: $79.99

Why It's a Good Deal: If you want a tablet that will encourage your kids to read, few slates can top the Kindle for Kids Bundle. It includes the latest Kindle (ad-free), a bonus cover, and Amazon's unmatched 2-year warranty. Unlike the Fire tablets, the Kindle was designed specifically for reading and since it doesn't feature a built-in backlight like other tablets and Kindles, bedtime starts the moment you take the lights out. (As of 12/24, Amazon states this item will not ship in time for Xmas).
