Last-Minute Online Christmas Gift Guide

Yes, it’s officially 13 days to Christmas. If you’ve been diligently shopping and stockpiling gifts throughout the year and have already wrapped, tagged, and stacked them, good girl! If not, there’s no need to panic. Just let your fingers do the shopping. Unless you really don’t mind being packed like a lemming in an Orchard Road mall, this is the perfect time to channel that savvy geek shopping goddess within and do your festive buying online. Check out this list of web retailers who can ship your Christmas orders in time for them to be wrapped up and tucked under the tree. Some can even gift-wrap your selections and mail them to the receiver, so you can concentrate on the really important things for the festive season, like, you know, counting the days till you get to open your presents, hehe.
