Well, Christmas is just a week from today. That means lots of last minute buying and stress. Even worse, the free shipping offers are almost all expired. So for millions of people like me, this week will be the start of a different kind of buying season all together: Gift Certificates. They fit in a greeting card - and cards are much cheaper than packages to ship over night.
This year, I've settled on a gift card which is good for almost anything, the Amazon Gift Card. And if you don't want to send it via mail, Amazon will email the gift card to a friend or family member for you, so you could shop right up until Christmas Day (if you are really lazy).

One less stress resolved. Now I just need to order the Honey Baked Ham for Christmas morning and go to Cost Plus World Market to buy stocking stuffers (European candies, strange little things, PEZ - Lot's of PEZ).
