Tick-tock—it’s Christmas o’clock! By now, if you’re like many people, you should be pretty much done with your gift buying. On the other hand, if you’re more like me, a self-admitted procrastinator (I like to think I work best under pressure…), you’re starting to feel the stress and wondering when the heck you’re going have time to get it all done. Well, take a deep breath and relax. I’m here to save the day; or at least, I’m gonna try.
Check out these interesting gifts for everyone on your Christmas list. And don’t worry about fighting the crowds or wasting precious time racing from store to store to find them. These can all be ordered online and delivered right to your or the recipient’s door.
FOR THE PERSON WHO HAS EVERYTHING
Some people are so spoiled they already have everything they want. Or maybe they’re just the opposite and don’t care about material things at all. In either case, consider taking the philanthropic route. Kiva is a non-profit organization which focuses on helping people all over the world by empowering them to take advantage of opportunities to make better lives for themselves and their families. Want something simpler? Plant a tree in someone else’s honor, or help out a classroom in need on their behalf.
OOH LA LA
Imagine the look on his face when he opens a box containing a sexy garment—for you. Willing to be daring? Give him a handwritten note listing your garment sizes along with directions to the Victoria’s Secret website. He may be confused at first, be he’ll figure it out soon enough. Think of it as a gift for both of you.
TRIED & TRUE
If you like to play it safe, or you’re just not sure what you can get away with, stick to a more traditional item. Get him a subscription to his favorite magazine. Not much of a reader? Most merchants offer gift cards right at their own web sites. If you’re not sure which one to go with, or want to let the recipient pick out her own gift card, try a super certificate from GiftCertificates.com. And who wouldn’t love an old-fashioned box of chocolates?

FOR THAT SOMEONE “SPECIAL”
I think we all know people who are special in their own unique way. So let them know you care about their future by reserving them a spot in heaven. Of course it’s a joke, but they won’t forget you as long as they live, and maybe longer. Or support that eternal pessimist in your life by getting her a token of your empathy, such as a demotivational poster.
Feeling generous? Keep ‘em coming all year long (or just a few months, if you’re short on funds) with a monthly subscription to your friend’s favorite vice. A simple internet search of “(insert item here) of the month club” will yield a long list of choices. In addition to my favorite, cigars (hint, hint), you can choose to have wine, cheese, chocolate, whiskey, or flowers delivered monthly. If you’re looking for convenience, check out Amazing Clubs, which has 38 different clubs and flexible subscription options.
A GIFT THAT SAYS I LOVE YOU
Or at the very least, it shows you definitely put in some time and effort. Start by entering some brief information about the recipient. Next, hand pick a collection of 16 possible gifts. Wantful will then create a personalized gift book and deliver it to you or the recipient. Finally, the recipient chooses one gift from the collection which will be mailed to her directly. Very impressive.
