Last-Minute Gift Ideas

Last week the Atlantic calculated the cost of gifting your loved ones with every single golden ring, maid a-milking, and partridge in a pear tree demanded by the classic “Twelve Days of Christmas.” The price tag for such lavish generosity? A gasp-inducing $114,651.18!

If your budget—and the limits of your gift recipients’ good humor—don’t allow you to pony up quite so big, we’ve put together a handy last-minute gift guide to help you select the perfect present for everyone on your shopping list.

Please note: To ensure your gifts arrive by Christmas, you’ll need to place your orders by noon on December 18 (for standard delivery), December 19 (for rush delivery), December 20 (2-day), or December 23 (for overnight shipping).
