Holidays are just days away and if you have not mapped your gift game for a gift, it may be too late to send anything to your family or friend's wishlist – at least without paying expensive for shipping costs. But do not forget about digital gifts. While some may want to have a box to open on holidays, the great upsets to choose digital gifts are that they are easy to buy, sometimes less expensive to buy than physical versions, and best of all, they come immediately.  Here are some ideas (ok, there are actually many ideas) for digital gifts to round off your bounty this high season.

If your loved one has suffered through ads on free tier of a music streaming service, a gift card can bump them into a premium subscription. And when you go premium, it's very hard to go back.
Buying the right gift card for the cables in your life can be a difficult task, as there are so many ways to watch television without the need for a cable box. Fortunately, there is a lot of overlap when it comes to what is offered by each service, so shooting in the dark is not as bad as you think. Although some sports events and series found on Hulu, Netflix, HBO Now and others are exclusive to those platforms, ask someone near who you buy to ensure you get the best purchase.
