It's the 11th hour, folks. We're sure you've been busy, what with your holiday parties and catching the new season of "Project Runway." With these obligations, you've been far too busy to shop, right? Don't worry, we anticipated this state of affairs, and will attempt to soothe that gift-buying anxiety with our annual and ever-handy last-minute gift guide. Know someone who hankers for the latest DVDs? We've got that covered. How about something for the music lover on your list? Check it out, yo. And we've culled the best of the best in books, too, for both children and adults. This year, there's no excuse for handing out wool socks. Unless the one you're gifting specifically asks for wool socks. Then we're cool with that.
