It’s time. You’re down to the wire now. Whether you forgot that today is your office’s Secret Santa or you’ve just been so swamped that you left a few gifts to the mercy of the last-minute gods, procrastination is never the present buyer’s best friend. Or is it? (Maybe you actually enjoy taking these things to the last minute. Who are we to judge?)

In any case, there’s no more time to waste. Now’s the time to get down to buying business with these fantastic gift suggestions. While you can certainly pick old standbys like ties, cologne, sweaters, and, our personal fave, gift cards, you can also get creative without too much brain power. Just choose from our selection of smaller items and books that are just right for stuffing stockings and feeding your later, maybe gene.

By the way, if you’re reading this on December 19, you can still log on to The Shopping Channel for some amazing last minute gifts. They’re shipping until 11:59 pm tonight.
