Perfect last-minute Christmas gifts for the privacy conscious.

Running out of time to get that special someone a Christmas gift? Don’t worry, ExpressVPN has your back. Here are 5 perfect privacy-conscious presents you can pick up at the gas station.

Last-minute X-mas presents

1. Newspapers

Privacy isn’t limited to online activity—like many things, it starts at home. So why not gift a newspaper? The lucky receiver can use it to cover their windows. Newspapers make excellent, iconic, and biodegradable curtains. They’ll be the talk of the neighborhood.

2. Aluminum foil

Not to cover their head with! That would be silly. No, this is to cover their phone with. Perfect for anyone who doesn’t want their phone to be tracked, or even called, over Christmas. Wrap the phone in aluminum foil, and hey presto! No signal can get in or out. It works much like an elevator, but smaller, and it won’t help you up the stairs.

3. Some stickers

Placing a sticker over a webcam will stop any hacker from using it as a video spy tool. Sure, post-it notes will do. But why not get creative? A pink unicorn for Dad? Or Snoop Dogg for Gran. Yes, there is such a thing as Snoop Dogg stickers. Obviously.

4. Nail polish

What? Nail polish? That’s right. Use it to paint over the screws on a laptop, then take a picture of the pattern. No one can get into the device without ruining all that pretty nail varnish. Get some extra glittery polish as this will make the pattern harder to replicate. And also, it will look fabulous.
