By request, a roundup of the gift guides:
- Cookbooks (recycled from 2008; I haven't used many new books this year)
- DVD/Blu-Ray (see above; I don't watch much that isn't on Bloomberg News these days)
- Girly Stuff
- Video Games
I highly recommend reading the comments as well as the posts; many of my commenters are very smart and have great suggestions.
Amazon says that with two day shipping (free if you get Amazon Prime) it can get anything to you if ordered by 8 pm. And I understand that there are these large buildings set near highways where you can actually go and physically pick stuff up without the intervention of a UPS man, though I'm not really sure how that works. Wouldn't you have to leave your house?
