You waited. Then you waited some more. And now it's too late. You should have finished shopping by now, but you're sitting lazily at your computer. Luckily, with our last minute gift guide, such limited exertion is not a problem.
iTunes album/movie: In case you wanted to go a bit more personal than an iTunes gift card (and you are too lazy to leave the house to buy one, even though that just means running to the convenience store), gift an album straight through the iTunes Store. It's easy, just right click on the buy icon and select the gift option. All you need is an email to send a friend an album. Also, you can always print it out, too. Prices vary.
Magazine Subscription: Every time I receive a copy of Time magazine in the mail, I think about how my mother-in-law kindly gifted it to me. But you know what? She could have ordered that subscription AFTER she handed me a symbolic copy on Christmas morning. Spice things up a bit by buying a magazine that's hard to acquire.
Burned Disc of Torrentz: I wouldn't recommend this for mum or grandma, but for a friend you casually meet over the holidays, why not just burn them a copy of something valuable you...err...procured online. Your favourite music, a movie that hasn't left cinemas yet, a bootleg of Windows 7 Ultimate - whatever - just make it something you know they'll like, and be sure to stick a bow on it $$=FREE
Bacon of the Month Club: 12 months. 12 different artisan bacons. Need I say more? $US315 [Grateful Palate]
Don't Buy a Star: There are a countless number of stars in the Universe. And you know what? When we're travelling the cosmos, no one plotting star charts is going to acknowledge Mark Rox Bacon 2009 as the official name of some red giant on the verge of engulfing the first intelligent life we encounter. Or, even worse, the star's name will be acknowledged and your love's name will go down in infamy. Smooth move. [Star Registry]
