Tuesday, the Department of Commerce reported that retail sales rose 0.2 percent in November, the start of the holiday shopping season.
No thanks to you. No, you're one of those who believes the start of the season is, say, mid-December, when Black Friday has faded to gray. You're in your element when the vibe on Tejon Street has shifted from mad desire to reluctant need.
Well, this is your time. And this Last-Minute Gift Guide is meant to give you a few quick and painless options that suggest you really care. Perhaps even more than you do.
Speaking of caring, another excellent last-minute idea is a donation to the Indy's Give! campaign (indygive.com). You can make a gift to one or more of 49 local nonprofits in someone's name, or make it in your own, then give the rewards out. For $33, you'll receive no fewer than eight rewards, including admission for two to the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center and a meal from La'au's Taco Shop.
You also get a Whoopee cushion from Zeezo's. So there's that.
Anyway, we wish you happy holidays, and happier last-minute hunting than you may have thought possible.See the entire Gift Guide Table of Contents here!
