Technically, you have all year long to buy and stash gifts for friends and family. But I am pretty sure that everyone gets a very rude and jarring wake up call as they are eating their slice of turkey. The holidays are upon us! We have to buy gifts for the family, the friends and that really cute guy who keeps flirting with you at the gym. Sadly, you are not 6-years-old anymore so you can't get away with slapping some glue on some macaroni and let me clue you in on a little secret. And everyone is tired of your homemade coupons for "free back massage." They're just aren't cutting it anymore.
Let's get the people what they deserve. Let's get them all what they want. And let's get a good price while we're at it.
