Last Minute Christmas Gift Idea: Personalize It
For those of us who aren't creatively inclined, creating something personalized for our loved ones may take longer than the shipping for these products over at Spread Shirt (Buy Direct), which vary from the standard hoodie and t's to the more unusual doggie shirts and human shoes. Next day shipping is available, so if you're stuck for something special, you can always peruse the others users' designs and then custom-create from there. One of my favorite design choices is the tree heart pictured here, and created by Hinix Tees.

Last Minute Christmas Gift Idea: Get Local
When you really can't think of anything to get your girlfriend or boyfriend, try looking a little bit closer to home. Sometimes the best last minute gifts are right in your backyard, or in places you visit every single day. For instance, you could buy a weekend pass to a local wine expo for the both of you to enjoy together (More Info), foreign film festival or a season's pass at the theater or opera. For the more relaxed or last minute gift givers however, you may want to try something even easier and closer to home: 7/11. A quick trip the other day surprised me with the number of gifts I could purchase, day or night, just a block or two from my house.
