Maybe this year, you nailed the holidays: You got organized early and now your presents are wrapped, your cards are sealed, and you're ready to relax.

Or maybe, like us, you've found yourself in a pickle. You first started thinking about holiday gift-giving around the same time sites stopped guaranteeing Christmas delivery, you haven't got a clue what to buy your dearest friends or family members, and you're thinking about faking an illness to buy time to buy gifts.

Help is here.

We've assembled a guide to 5 great last-minute, no-ship gifts that will fit any budget and satisfy a range of giftees, from iPhone-obsessed uncles to picky aesthetes. Take a look at our suggestions below, then see more techie gift ideas here.

Meet Wantful: It's more personal than a gift certificate, less trouble than picking a present yourself.

The gift-giving site will help you compile a custom, elegantly assembled booklet of sixteen gifts, all at a specific price-point you set yourself, from which the recipient of the gift can choose his or her desired item.

Wantful's selection of gifts, which range from $30 to $500, have been carefully curated and assembled from small boutiques and artisan craftsmakers across the country. Among the items from which you (and your giftee) can choose: handmade earrings, vinegar infused with "Egyptian heirloom organic lemon peel," and hand press notecards.
