Last Minute Holiday Shopping: Part I

We are down to the wire, people. Thankfully, our local shops know it, and they're doing their best to help us when it comes to getting those last few things before Christmas morning (or before the next candle on the Menorah is lit). Today it was Lavendar Boutique's denim and shoes sale, and tomorrow it's Luna's last minute 2-day sale. They're offering an extra 30 percent off of all sale items, which already includes designer jeans for $75 and under. I was in the shop yesterday, and I assure you, there's plenty of good stuff left on the shelves–jewelry, jeans, dresses, sweaters, scarves, and handbags.

In case there are any men out there who follow this blog (you like me, you really like me!)–which, by the way, you should–I have three last minute gift ideas for the ladies in your life, at all different price points:
