Uh-oh. It's Hannukah, my parents are dropping in on short notice, and I have precisely zero presents on hand.
While I generally like to give homemade gifts, which convey a lot of love without taking too large a toll on the environment or my checkbook, that was nearly enough to send me running to the nearest store. Any store. Happy holidays, Mom, here's your CVS gift card.
Thankfully, MPL has a great collection of books on last-minute holiday gifts. If you want to give homemade gifts but don't have much time, if you're looking for an inexpensive way to spread holiday cheer, or if you just waited too long to get Amazon.com shipping before Christmas, you'll love these books as much as I do. Find the perfect project whether you've got a few weeks until Christmas or you're down to the wire before a holiday party in a few days (or, you know, hours.)
Oh, and Mom - enjoy your red wine jelly.
