Everyone knows the holidays are tough, and sometimes, it's just too hard (and expensive) to think of the perfect, thoughtful gift for every loved one and rando in your life. Really, don't beat yourself up about it. Life happens, you know?
And it's going to be ok. Because it felt so warm and fuzzy to help you out with last-minute Halloween costumes, it seemed almost unfair not to extend the same courtesy when it came to Christmas gifts. So, if you happen to end up empty handed and broke before your last holiday party of the season, we have some heartfelt, festive suggestions, all of which can be found at our local bodega. Just make sure you have a few miniature Santa hats on hand.
