Last minute Christmas gift ideas for your favorite friend or family member

Get an inexpensive last minute Christmas gift that's still thoughtful

Yeah yeah, we’ve all been there. The holidays are fast approaching and we’re still left wondering what are the best gift ideas for our closest friends and family. Apple products would make for great last-minute Christmas gifts, but we all know how expensive those are… until now. Thanks to the refurbished market, you can get a refurbished Apple product this Christmas that still feels new yet actually comes at an affordable price.

Who said last minute Christmas shopping was a bad thing? Thanks to Back Market, you can make a semi-impulsive purchase of an Apple product without breaking the bank :D

Get a Christmas iPad deal for under $300

You may be surprised to learn that you can get an iPad for 50% off this Christmas as a last-minute gift. Why pay $500 or more for a device that’s really just meant for casual browsing? Plus, all refurbished and used iPads are still supported by Apple, no matter where you buy them. The only caveat is that older iPads will no longer receive OS updates after 5 years of their release date, so make sure to get one that’s not too old if you still want to get a lot of use out of it. But yeah, you can now get a 2017 or 2018 iPad for less than $300, which in our opinion is a complete steal :D

Get an Apple Watch for $100 off this holiday season

If you know somebody that wears an Apple Watch and would perhaps like a newer model, consider getting a refurbished Series 4 or Series 5 Apple Watch. These come with an upgraded display compared to the older Series 3 and Series 2. At first glance, it may be hard to tell the difference—but trust us—any dedicated Apple Watch user will notice the difference right away. And our cheapest Apple Watches come in at around $100. Not bad for a cheap last minute Christmas gift, huh?

Get somebody really special a cheap iMac this Christmas

Do you know somebody who is working from home or taking online classes? Maybe they don’t have a computer that can keep up with their workload, or they only have a small laptop, which is uncomfortable to use for longer periods of time?

If their laptop is still fairly recent and has enough processing power, consider buying a refurbished computer monitor, or if they need a new computer altogether, a refurbished iMac may be the perfect addition to their home office.
