Filed under: Gift Ideas — Francesca @ 12:33 pm

It is Monday. Christmas is on Thursday. You have nothing to wear, and nothing to give to your mom or your boyfriend or your 14-year-old niece, Shari. And you must work the long hours today, and tomorrow, finishing the project that must be in the email inbox of the client before he gets into work on Friday. Francesca, you say, help!

Francesca hears your pleas, and has compiled a little (non-exhaustive) list of online shopping stores (at a variety of price-points and styles) which will still deliver on or before Wednesday, so that you can look beautiful and Shari will still think you are the Good Aunt, and you do not even have to leave your desk to pull it all together!
