Same Day Delivery Gifts

Updated April 17, 2017

If you need to send a last minute birthday, anniversary or other holiday gifts, companies that offer same-day delivery make it possible for your gift to arrive on-time. A wide range of products from flowers to cupcakes can be delivered to a recipient's home or business.

Electronic Gift Cards

Many online retailers, as well as traditional brick-and-mortar stores, offer customers the option of purchasing plastic or paper gift cards, as well as electronic gift cards sometimes called e-gift cards. Electronic gift cards are sent directly to the recipient's Inbox with a special note from you on the same day of your purchase. No need to worry about strict time frames for placing an order. For an inexpensive, immediate gift, send an e-card to recognise a holiday or other special event. Personalise the card with a special message and include your signature. Just like the e-gift card, this card will be delivered to the recipient's Inbox immediately.


With online flower companies working in partnership with small, local flower companies, the likelihood of getting flowers delivered to your special someone the same day you place the order, has increased. While every item the flower shops carry may not be available the same day, many flower shops have designated bouquets that are carefully prepared and available for same day delivery, as long as orders are placed before the cut-off time.


Send a balloon arrangement. This type of arrangement can be paired with small stuffed animals, greeting cards and even candy for same day delivery.

Cupcakes, Cookies and Cakes

If you have a local bakery in your area, check with them to see if they offer same day delivery options. Often times, you have to call these rush orders in, rather than placing them online. It's unlikely, that you'll be able to have cupcakes, cookies or cakes shipped via same day delivery from bakeries outside of the recipient's immediate area. In most instances, overnight or two-day delivery options are available for these products.

Gift Baskets

Baskets filled with fruits, wine, candy and even chocolates can arrive on your recipient's doorstep as a gift the same day it's ordered. Select a gift basket based on her interests and personalise it with a special message.
