If you patronize the internet daily, as so many of us do to make a living, you’ve surely noticed by now that the space is drowning in gift guides. It’s the holidays, after all, and we all have gifts to buy (some for people we don’t even know).

We’ve been happily working away at our own here at the Dot, and we think they might come in handy for holiday crunch week. There’s only 8 days left before Christmas, after all, and shipping takes a bit longer this time of year. If risking the mall sounds like hell on Earth to you, check out our top picks without leaving the comfort of your laptop.
