LAST MINUTE GIFTING: NOT A CREATURE WAS STIRRING, EXCEPT FOR YOUR MOUSE.
Great Santa’s beard!!! How did the big night sneak up so quickly? Well, relax. Yes, you may have dropped the bows of holly when it came to getting that gift, but it’s not too late. Here’s how to do it without looking like a real grinch – even on Christmas Eve.
Thanks to the wonder of late 20th century technology known as “The Internet”, you can pick out a gift at the very last minute. After you’ve completed the transaction find a nice picture of the item and print it out. Since you’re going to look a little hokey already giving them a picture of a gift, you can at least package it nicely. But if you truly have no wrapping paper or tape, you can roll the picture into a scroll and tie it with a nice ribbon. Ta-dah!
Of course, your giftee isn’t going to like the fact that you put them off to the last possible minute so make sure you have a winning excuse on hand. Think “I looked everywhere and just couldn’t find it,” or “There was a terrible egg nog truck accident on my way to the mall.” Hopefully, you’re a better fibber than you are a gifter.
Good luck, and remember – it’s the thought that counts … in theory, anyway. And if you want a gift they’re sure to love (with great quality pictures), just swing by our Man-tastic Gift Guide.
