10 Last Minute Gifts for Less Than $15

Editors' pick: Originally published Dec. 16.

Without fail, the holiday season brings about joy, generosity and terrifying credit card debt. For some reason, holiday shopping lists have expanded beyond immediate family members to include second-cousins, coworkers and even the mailman.

Though gifting is a great gesture, buying 38 candles can take a toll on your bank account. Rather than being the scrooge who skips out on the Secret Santa, take advantage of these great deals on Amazon and make Christmas merrier for less. As an added bonus, all of these items are available for free two-day shipping via Amazon Prime so feel free to wait until the last possible second.
