Do not panic -- we repeat -- do not panic: We've got last-minute holiday gift ideas

December 22, 2010 |  8:02 am


Oh brother. You waited until the Very. Last. Minute. to do your holiday shopping.

No worries.

Here's a roundup of suggested holiday gift ideas, including measuring spoons. (You think that's too dinky for a gift? Every cook we know would love the luxury of having several sets. This set cost us $2.59. You could buy a few such little trinkets without breaking the bank, and put together a swell gift basket for the cook in your life.)

Now, be forewarned: Some of these gift ideas might require a jog to the mall or a bookstore, a night in the kitchen, or spending a small fortune on overnight shipping. But don't blame us -- you're the one who waited until the very last minute:
