Okay, I'm doing it. I'm going to ask the following five words some of you may be dreading. Ready? Okay, here it goes:

Are you done shopping yet?

For those that said yes, good for you, high-fives all around, yippeeskippy and all that. For those that said no, well, do not fret! I've got a few fun gifts any folks would be sure to love you can do right now. Really. No, really.

Pick a start, any star - Give a star! The Online Star Registry lets you pick and name a star in your giftee's honor. Print out a little certificate and then go grab a telescope at the mall this weekend to be able to keep tabs on it in the sky.

Pick an animal, any animal - Give an animal and help a family in a less fortunate area sustain their farm with the help of the folks at Think a sheep, a bunch of chicks, a goat. Or help keep a species going strong by adopting a dolphin or a whale at the Oceanic Society or adopt a tiger or penguin or a bunch of other animals at the World Wildlife Fund.

Pick a club, any club - Give a gift that keeps giving all year long with one of the Gift of the Month clubs. has a gazillion to choose from: think chocolate, cigars, beer, flowers, coffee, you name what your person loves, I will bet they have it. Who doesn't want a fun delivery every month?

What do you have left to buy? Have you ever gotten an gift of the month club kind of thing?

 I finished shopping last weekend.  We received fruit in the mail for 3 or 4 months a few years ago.

Not really finished, but out of $$$. But it's not about the gifts anyway.
