I'm currently in the "I have no idea what to get certain people" phase of my holiday gift shopping, and it's not a great place to be on December 13. Despite the fact that they (i.e., the collective media) told us to start shopping in September, if you're reading this, you've probably procrastinated. And that's okay; we're all busy. But now, you kind of need to actually buckle down and order those gifts, as your shopping days are officially numbered.

We all have a few of those people in our lives who always seem to have everything they want and need or who we don't really know well enough to get a very personal gift. But that doesn't mean we can't still get them a thoughtful gift that they'll actually use and that they probably don't already have. Below, I've compiled a slew of unique gift ideas that will hopefully come to your rescue. Just be sure to check the shipping deadlines—the clock is ticking.
