Even More Last-Minute Holiday Gift Picks from Micro Center Experts


The holiday season is here and the deadline to get gifts is right around the corner. But don’t worry, Micro Center’s in-house experts have last-minute gift ideas for everyone on your list. We’ve got gadgets for grandparents, STEM toys for kids, and Legos for anyone from nine to 90. Here are some of our team’s last-minute recommendations.  


The enchanting Expecto Patronum set, from the Lego Harry Potter collection, is a great option for fans, allowing them to build one of two Patronus spells – Harry’s stag and Remus Lupin’s wolf. It is the perfect gift for Lego Harry Potter enthusiasts. 

Of course, if you’re just a Lego enthusiast, we’ve got you covered with  great sets like a Lego rendition of The Great Wave, buildable succulents, and model Bugattis. And if you’re buying for young ornew Lego fans, sets like Creative Monkey Fun and Adorable Dogs are fantastic options for all ages.  

Headphones and a Massage Gun by @RachelleR05   

Everyone uses headphones, whether for work, online meetings and classes, or just listening to music or watching something on your computer or phone. The Sony wh-1000xm5 active noise cancelling Bluetooth headphones are perfect all-arounders, with a lightweight design and up to 40 hours of battery life. Their hi-res audio support gives them great audio quality, and with eight built in mics, any voice chatting you’ll do will sound just as crisp. 

Alternatively, the Havit MG1508 deep tissue handheld massage gun is an easy gift that’s great for everyone. It comes with four different massage heads, with each head targeting a different muscle or joint, as well as a number of speed settings. I personally own one of these and wish someone had got it for me sooner. Of course, there’s nothing more disappointing than a gift that needs batteries. Thankfully, the MG 1508 is rechargeable, so it’s ready to go out of the box.  

Magna-Tiles by Jose Garcia

Trying to figure out a last-minute gift idea for  kids? Check out our wide selection of Magna-Tiles sets! Perfect for young engineers, Magna-Tiles feature large, magnetic pieces, making them great for tiny hands. Whether your new builder is interested in big machines, dinosaurs, or animals, Magna-Tiles has a great set for them. There’s even a number of theme-less sets, so their imagination can run wild!

Sansui S55VAUG by @ChaosDTV

A beautiful smart LED TV is perfect for any friends or family. Who can’t use a new TV for a bedroom or office? And the best part is that a new TV doesn’t have to blow out your gift budget and we recently got in some new smart LED TVs that are great budget options. 

The Sansui S55VAUG offers a super slim LED display that can be placed virtually anywhere in your home. The built-in LED technology delivers amazing picture quality with a vivid range of colors and an incredible range of brightness. If you’re still using an older television, LED technology uses a significantly lower amount of electricity, which means you’ll also be giving the gift of electricity bill savings. A win-win situation all around! The Sansui retails for around $400, but we currently have it on sale for $200 - literally half off. 

Whether you’re getting a gift for someone on your list or yourself, the big 55-inch Sansui Smart LED TV is a great choice. It’s a budget-friendly smart TV with great visual fidelity and is ready to connect with your favorite apps – and a great reason to stay inside as the weather gets colder! 

But that's not all - we've got tons on sale, so be sure to check out our Holiday Buying Guides and then stop by your local Micro Center today and finish your holiday shopping!
