It's the latest of the last-minutes for gift shopping online, but I think the holidays snuck up on a lot of people this year!
First, this would not arrive by the holidays, but printing a little pic and putting it in a card with the promise of a FULL SIZE VERSION of AWESOME is forthcoming wouldn't be so horrible.
Not when the FULL SIZE VERSION of the Limited Edition Social Media Propaganda Poster is this awesome.
To say nothing of the Twitter Fail Whale one, which I adore in so many ways. You know, because I love the Twittah.
From Heather, who loves this nightshirt: She Who Reads is Booked Every Night.
This nightshirt is a lovely shade of blue and comes in a cute little bag
with the same design printed on it. It's perfect for the reading lady and
can comfortably fit up to approximately a size 18/20, maybe more.
From Silver James: Pasties for a good cause from Etsy.
Those are pasties I can believe in. Particularly the Hanukkah ones. Whee!
And from Laura in PA: Novel Creations, the purses that are made out of books. Try not to buy them all.
Yet I hear you saying: “But what's this Etsy stuff, Sarah? It's not going to arrive by Christmas.” That's true. Etsy is not always the fastest, but you know, sometimes you find a gift for someone after the holidays, or there's a birthday, or you bookmark something for next year.
But what about stuff FOR RIGHT NOW OMG THE HOLIDAYS ARE UPON US LIKE ZOMBIES?
First, If you are an Amazon Prime member, you have free two-day shipping, and one-day for $3.99. And if you're not, you can sign up for a free trial and take advantage of it. Among the prime items under $20 that might make marvelous gifts:
Heat this neck and shoulder wrap in the microwave (or the freezer) and it (you'll never guess) wraps around your neck and shoulders with the heat and the cold and the awesomeness.
I have a smaller version without the scalloped back part, and it's wonderful when I'm cold and achy, which, in the winter, is pretty much every other night. That scalloped part would be amazing.
If you buy this sherpa throw for someone, and they have cats, it'll end up being a gift for their cats (not that I would know this from my own cats, or anything), but if the cats condescend to share (hahaha) this is one cozy wrap for occupying the couch and reading. And it's under $30.
I'm including this because it's just plain crazy looking: heated slippers in Cow or Leopard print. The benefit of the leopard print: they LOOK AT YOU. HELLO from your FEET as they are WARMED. Nothing says “happy holidays!” like cross-eyed leopards on your feet, right?
So what's your favorite last-minute gift? Are you venturing out into the holiday madness? What's your favorite gift that you're giving this year?
