Blogmas Day 20: Last Minute Gifts

Hello, everyone! I hope you all had productive Tuesdays. Mine started unfairly early, with that 7 am Ulta shift I mentioned yesterday. I kind of resent Ulta for opening so early this week just to cater to those people who have yet to get their holiday shopping done. Maybe that's because I pride myself on being an early shopper to avoid the crowds and the gimmicks, or maybe it's because I had to wake up at 5:30 this morning and tomorrow's alarm is set for 4:45. Maybe a combination of the two. But either way, if you're not done with your shopping yet, wandering aimlessly at 8 am isn't going to help anybody. Which is why I'm directly going against my word from earlier this month, when I said I wouldn't be providing you with a gift guide. Some of you guys are desperate and waited until the last minute, and now it's my job to help you. I didn't ask to be the voice of a generation, but here I am accepting the responsibility nonetheless. Don't say I never did anything for you.

Without further adieu: 25 Last Minute Gifts*

*note: these aren't exceptional gifts. We don't have time for "exceptional," you waited too long. Take what you can get.

1) Assorted teas
2) Assorted coffees
3) Assorted cookies
4) Homemade cookies
5) Homemade brownies
6) A good pair of brown boots
7) Boot socks
8) Fuzzy socks
9) New glasses (for someone with fuzzy vision)
10) Bar glasses (for someone who likes to drink to the point of fuzzy vision)
11) Barre classes
12) A new notebook for class
13) The Notebook on DVD or Blu-Ray
14) Blue suede shoes
15) A shoe rack
16) A new rack (for your flat-chested friend)
17) A flat-screen TV
18) iPhone screen protectors
19) Protection (condoms or firearms, interpret as you will)
20) A condominium with a fireplace
21) A special place in your heart
22) A heartfelt letter
23) Letterhead
24) Headphones
25) A phone call

I definitely thought this through with a lot of intention. I didn't just play a quick word-association game with myself once I realized how boring curating a gift guide would be. Nope. Not at all. That's not at all what happened here. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to be up quite early tomorrow.

See you tomorrow,
