If you procrastinated with gifting this holiday season, or maybe forgot to get a present for someone on your list (it happens!), you can still give them something thoughtful and handcrafted, thanks to Amazon. The online retailer is combining two of its popular services and features, Prime Now (which offers one or two hour delivery of select items in certain cities) and Amazon Handmade (a shop offering handcrafted items by artisans all over the U.S.), to make gifting so much easier.

Customers in select cities will be able to gift items like handcrafted pottery, necklaces, skincare, tote bags, and candles made by local artisans—all within a one or two hour window starting today and until 11:59 p.m. on Christmas Eve. Eligible cities include Austin, Minneapolis, New York City, Phoenix, Portland, Raleigh, San Diego, San Francisco, and Seattle. The two-hour delivery is free, while you’ll have to pay a fee to get your items in an hour.
