'Tis the season to start panicking about what to buy your loved ones for Christmas. Those lynx sets you’ve stockpiled from previous birthdays to pass on to your brother have run out, and besides, he’s well into his mid-thirties. It’s time you looked elsewhere and not only gift this Christmas, but gift great. How do you get your boyfriend to smell better without offending him? How do you get your girlfriend to wear garms that you blatantly want for yourself? What do you get your football-loving father that isn’t a novelty item from his club’s shop? Or, if you’re looking to gift yourself this Christmas, here are some ideas that should ease any yuletide anxiety.
