So, you done with your holiday shopping? I haven’t even started mine—I’ve been too busy looking for cool stuff for this, the second volume of our gift guide. (Check out here if you missed the first half, which ran Nov. 25.) This time around, we’ve broken out of the box a little bit. Sure, we still put together lists of great food, drinks and stocking stuffers—there was just too much good stuff for us to resist sharing it with you—but we also tried our hand at extremely frugal shopping (see here) and came up with a trio of easy, cheap gifts you can make at home (here, here and here). Because, honestly, after three months of hunting down other people’s Christmas presents, all we want to do is kick back with a hot toddy, boot up the laptop and spend the next two weeks watching Paul Linnman get splattered with whale blubber over and over and over again. Isn’t that the true meaning of Christmas, after all? —Ben Waterhouse
