As much as we love, love, love the holiday season (hello, sample sales, Mariah Carey's X-mas album, egg nog!), there's no denying it's not always, as the song goes, the most wonderful time of the year. With mad parties to attend, decorating to do, flights to book, and lists to make, sometimes the last thing that gets done is our present buying. Sure, it's fun to give good gift, but finding unique options for, say, your boss AND your mom, can get a little overwhelming. To help ease your stress levels, we put together a collection of amazing options that you can give to literally anyone—there are gender neutral and pretty much universal, so you can tuck one under your arm for a last-minute prezzie no matter where you're heading. There are the coolest headphones, glossy coffee table books, and even chocolate pancake batte—trust we have everyone on your hard-to-buy-for list covered. The coolest part? All our picks are available, and just in (!) at our fave local shops, so you can pick them up on the way to your next holiday soirée.
