Last-Minute Gifts for Your Loved-Ones

Posted by on December 21 at 17:47 PM

I finished my x-mas shopping last week, but I have sympathy for those of you who are only just starting. Below are some easy people pleasers—post more ideas if you’ve got ‘em.

Nancy Pearl’s Book Lust.
Wine, crackers, and a nice big hunk of cheese.
Movie theater gift certificates.
A nonstick crepe pan and a book of crepe recipes (City Kitchens, 1527 Fourth Ave).
Van Gogh Dutch Cocoa Vodka.
William Sonoma’s French lavender or Kaffir lime dish soap and a really nice dish towel (Pacific Place).
Giant, plush microbes or Uglydolls (available at OKOK on Broadway).

In a pinch, you can one-stop shop for everybody at the fabulous Magic Mouse Toys (and books and games) at 603 First Ave in Pioneer Square or at the Pacific Science Center’s gift shop.
Good luck.
