Last Minute Gift Ideas

Okay, time is ticking and some of you still haven't gotten all your Christmas gifts yet.  There are so many tricky people to buy for... but I put together a last minute gift guide for the ladies on your list and all are under $50.

Nice Pajamas
Most people don't invest too much in pajamas, which is odd because you sleep in them every single night.  I just got this J.Crew sleepshirt a few weeks ago and I love it.  I imagine I will soon have the cost per wear down to a few pennies because it is so darn comfy.  If you buy through tonight, you'll get 30% and you'll still have time to get it shipped before Christmas.  FYI: If you buy this particular item, I would order one size down.

2012 Calendar
Want to buy someone something you know they'll use?  A calendar will be used everyday for a full year!  Plus, this one is handmade and only $20.  You could get it as a stocking stuffer without breaking the bank. 

Cozy Socks
If you're going to get someone socks for Christmas, make sure they're interesting and more special than your standard pair of socks.  I got these Smartwool socks for myself recently, and I wish they came in a dozen different colors.  Smartwool socks are the best: thin, but so warm!  Other suggestions: Happy Socks, Hansel From Basel, and Wigwam.

Magazine Subscription
This is the best very-last-minute gift.  If you realize you forgot someone on your list, head to the bookstore and pick out a magazine or periodical suited to their interests.  I think it's best if you buy the current edition on shelves and then let them know you've paid for the year.  That way, they have a little something to open on Christmas day, and they'll be excited every time a new issue arrives. 

Personalized Stationary
I am a bit biased because I love stationary, but this set from Rifle Paper Co. is just so nice.  You get to pick a face that looks similar to your gift recipient, a font, and a color scheme.  If you have a newly married couple on your gift list, you can add two faces. Plus, you might even be on the receiving end of a handwritten note!

Abbotts Caramels
The best Christmas gift, ever.  We get them in our stocking every year and it's the highlight of my year.
