At Lifehacker, we independently select and write about stuff we love and think you'll like too. We have affiliate and advertising partnerships, which means we may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page. BTW - prices are accurate and items in stock at the time of posting.

We’re just a week away from the night when Santa (or whomever you think brings your gifts) slides down real, fake or imaginary chimneys to deliver gifts. But there’s still time for some online deals that can arrive in time to stuff some stockings or fill spaces under the tree.

Catch has Monopoly: The Mega Edition on sale for under $40, down from over $60. We had a chat about Monopoly the other day and while it can be fun, it’s probably a game best played after Christmas is over as it can lead to heightened stress as friends try to bankrupt each other.

OK – so this one won’t quite arrive in time but it looks like a great deal and if you aren’t going to get to hand over all your gifts on the appointed day – then this could work for you. You can pick up a Google Pixel 2 XL Black 64GB Android Smartphone for under $640 if you use the discount code PLASMA, today on Ebay. Otherwise the price jumps to $709.95 which is still pretty good. Delivery times suggest arrival will be use after Christmas but there is a click and collect option if you’re in Sydney.

How Long Will It Take For Your Christmas Gifts To Ship?

We're fewer than three weeks from Christmas and that means those of us looking to get goods shipped to us in time to get them under there tree need to finalise our online shopping plans. At this time of year postal and delivery services are working at capacity which can lead to longer than expected delivery times. Here are the delivery and lead times for some of the main shopping sites.

If your phone tastes are a little more retro, there’s the Nokia 3310 3G. As well as the updated version of Snake, you get the chance to lead a more distraction-free life as all those pesky social apps won’t bother you with ceaseless notifications of what some person you went to school with last decade just had of lunch. Plus, it can be used a hotspot so you can keep your PC connected when needed. Not too bad for $89.

Wireless headphones are becoming increasingly important as headphone jacks disappear and we all try to avoid dongle and adaptor hell. The TaoTronics Wireless 4.1 Magnetic Earbuds cost just $34.99 and have a built-in mic and IPX5 waterproof rating, which means they can be splashed but not immersed.

If you’re looking for a way to help someone get into the whole smart home thing, there’s a nifty bundle at Big W. For $64, you can score a Google Home Mini and TP-Link Smart Plug bundle. That’s about half the price you’d expect to pay normally.

And, if you’re looking for a couple of last minute stocking stuffers, Kmart has portable bluetooth speakers for $15 and noise-cancelling headphones for $25.

This is probably the last day you’ll have to order online and receive delivery before next Monday.
