It’s Christmas Eve and you’re on the way to see your family. Sadly, time to find gifts for them has run out. But wait, what’s that in the distance? There’s some sort of light shining on the horizon. Is it a festive holiday display? No! It’s the one place that can bail you out of your Yuletide predicament because it’s the only place that’s still open: the gas station.

As long as there are gas stations, there will always be a place for ECSPs (Extreme Christmas Shopping Procastinators) to find something that can be useful and perhaps even enjoyed by a loved one. Heck, it beats showing up empty-handed on December 25th. Here are some can’t-miss last-minute gift ideas to look for when you’re filling up your tank:

  • Assortment of jerky (Almost as good as a Hickory Farms platter.)
  • Batteries (For the better gifts they receive.)
  • Bottle of budget-friendly wine (Have you tried the Circle K Chardonnay?)
  • Car air freshener 3-pack (The pine trees look Christmas-y.)
  • Gift basket of automotive fluids (Motor oil, fuel additive, anti-freeze.)
  • Lottery tickets (Get them more than one, big spender.)
  • Premium wiper blades (Spring for the good ones.)
  • Sack o’ sundries (Lip balm, playing cards, antacids, comb.)
  • “Sugar & Spice” sampler (M&M’s, Skittles, and Flamin’ Hot Cheetos.)
  • Sunglasses, sun hat, sunscreen (You still won’t be invited to their beach house.)
