Did you know there is a group of people who only will shop last minute? These high-adrenaline thrill shoppers thrive on the rush of finding the best gifts.
To add to this rush, these people will go online to see how they can make the mail carriers sweat to get these gifts to your home in time. The best part being the fact they are not in control of when the package gets there.
If a package says it won’t be there until after Dec. 25th, they will cancel the order, and find another item that says “December 24th by 9 PM”.
It’s the drug of the season for a thrill shopper.
So here are a few items you can get last minute that Geekazine approves of. Don’t worry. I’ll give you a couple options if you’re not really a thrill shopper, and want to order to pick up in-store.

iPad Pro 11 inch
Who doesn’t want an iPad Pro? It does so much. I use it for music, some movies, and games. I can easily take it downstairs and work while watching a Netflix movie, or any of my videos.
It’s a perfect upgrade for many, including yourself. You need a gift. So why not?
Wyze Cam Wireless Camera
I have been switching out my older WiFi cams with the Wyze Cam HD Home Cam. They are inexpensive, easy to install, and with a 128 GB MicroSDXC card, you can capture a lot of video content to help keep your home safe, or to put up on your TikTok when that squirrel falls out of the tree.
Since you’re a thrill seeker, why not record the thrills with this Insta360 OneX. It records up to 5.7K video, and even 3K 100fps video in slow motion. With the Insta360 app, you can turn those 360 videos into HD motion videos. I’ve been doing that in the last few shows I’ve attended.
With the extension arm, it makes the video look like you’re flying a drone around, getting shots you would never get with an iPhone or Android.
TCL 50″ Class 5 4K UHD Roku Smart-TV
Ready for a new TV? TCL was one of the first Roku-based TV’s. I have one in the studio, and use it all the time. You can connect not only any Roku app to the TV, you have 2 HDMI inputs for game systems, and the antenna for over the air channels.
Did you know with the over the air channels, you can set up a DVR to record it? Just set up a USB drive.
Netgear Nighthawk AX12
Internet speed might be the best thing to give. It won’t speed up your cable internet connection, but if you have a Plex Server or other media devices like the recently reviewed ibi in your home, or even with the Wyze cameras and TV, you won’t be slowed down checking to see who’s where in the house.
This is a tri-band router, which allows you to set up guest wifi, a lower speed wifi for your cameras, and high band for the TV.
I hope this helps in your Thrill holiday shopping. Let me know what you end up getting, and if it came in time.
