Drizzly is a delivery service that can deliver a gift of spirits to someone in as fast as 30 minutes. The selection varies by location, so you'll need to factor that in, but in bigger cities, it is a great way to get a last-minute gift to a friend, family member or coworker.

Delivery fees can vary, but in our experience, expect to pay about $4.99. Many stores include a minimum purchase amount, so pay attention to that as you start to shop.

If you're stuck on trying to figure out what to send, Drizzly offers a gift guide. Personally, we recommend Bulleit, WhistlePig, High West American Prairie, Hendricks Gin, Neft Vodka and Wild Turkey Longbranch.

AirPods Pro are the best AirPods that you can buy from Apple right now. They fit in a pocket and deliver active noise cancelation to block out exterior noise. The Transparency mode is also handy for letting you hear what is happening around you when you need to listen in.

With Spatial Audio delivering surround sound from the iPhone or iPad, they are excellent for entertainment. We love using these to make phone calls and find them more comfortable than the previous generation AirPods.

The PS5 controller is a great gift for PlayStation 5 owners, or even for someone who is getting one in the next PS5 restock.

They need a PS5 controller to play PS5 games on the new console. While the PlayStation 5 includes a controller, they will need a second to play with a friend on the same machine.

If they don't already have a PS5, you should let them know that this isn't part of a bigger gift hidden away, or you could upset them.
