If the Christmas bug hasn’t quite bitten you at this point, your wisest course of action would probably be to worry–even just a tiny bit. With Christmas looming dangerously close on the holiday horizon, before you know it you’ll be at reunions and Christmas gatherings, swept up in the charm and wonder of the season. If you don’t get your butt in shopping gear soon, you’ll be showing up at these holiday get-togethers empty-handed.
True to the Christmas spirit of sharing, here are 8 online places where you can get most of that list over and done with.
