2 days until Christmas! Here are some speedy gift ideas

Desperate and giftless? Save Christmas with these last-minute gift ideas. 

Every year we’re full of intentions to be super organised for Christmas and tick off gift lists months in advance. But in a year that’s brought us bushfires, social distancing and travel cancellations, no one’s that together. And now it’s just 2 days before Christmas! But don’t panic. Here are some last-minute present ideas that’ll keep you on Santa’s nice list. 

A very Christmas gift card

Everyone loves a gift card, but as the gift-giver, you want it to feel personal and seasonal. The solution: the Christmas Card for HerChristmas Card for Him or Christmas Card for Kids

The Her and Him Christmas cards can be used online or in store with some of Australia’s favourite retailers, brands and entertainment venues, including Sportsgirl, H&M, Foot Locker, Universal Store, Xbox and Palace Cinemas.

For kids, you’ll feel good about giving them a fun experience at Strike Bowling or BOUNCE Inc, nourishing their minds with Booktopia, or letting them pick a new favourite toy from Scooter Hut or Toyworld. The best part: it’s their choice. 

A gift card made for them

Whoever said gift cards were impersonal had never met a gift card from The Card Network. Here are some of our best gift cards for Christmas – each tailored to different interests and all delivered digitally, straight after you purchase. Win! 


  • The Active Card: from surf to sea, this gift card lets them find the best active wear to take on the elements – or an online yoga class. 

  • The Restaurant Card: treat them to a meal at their favourite spot, whether it’s a cafe brunch, lunch at their local or an indulgent high-end dinner. 

  • The Pub & Bar Card: available in any pub or bar that accepts eftpos, this is one gift that’s sure to go down well. 

  • The Pamper Card: spoil them with a massage, facial or manicure – it’s up to them – at more than 10,000 salons, spas and beauty clinics.

The ‘I have no idea what to get you’ gift

Too frantic to think or don’t know your gift recipient very well? You can’t go wrong with the Online Card, which lets them shop from the couch (in a post-COVID world that’s never been more appealing) at leading online retailers, including ebay and ASOS. 

The best part: these gift cards can all be delivered digitally, so they’re sorted in minutes and you don’t need to worry about shipping delays. Santa’s going digital in 2020!
