Gift it in Purple Part 3: The Art of the Last Minute Gift

The time is nigh.  Like, really, really nigh... and, if you're like me and have a slight shopping addiction cash flow issues, you've probably put some of your holiday shopping off until the last minute.
It happens.

BUT DON'T FRET!  Because you can still buy gifts on the cheap at your local Whole Foods!!

It's one-stop shopping!!

... Yes, I'm serious.

(In fact... dad, stop reading.  Your gift may or may not be on the list below.

Like... really dad.  X OUT NOW!)

So, here I give you 8 last minute items that you can buy while you do your grocery shopping.  IT'S GENIUS!
Note: if you put the word "gourmet" in front of anything, its perceived net worth triples.  Seriously.

1.  Gourmet Espresso - for the lover of all things caffeinated.  (The black label Illy Espresso is the best.  That is some strong shit.)

2.  Gourmet Chocolates - Because a box of chocolates is like life, I'm told.

3.  Gourmet Popcorn! 

4.  Gourmet Hot Cocoa Mix

5.  Gourmet Salsa!!  OLE!
This 5 borough salsa is especially appropriate if you actually live in one of the 5 boroughs and are giving it to your dad who lives in Texas, for example.  (Act surprised dad.  I told you to stop reading!)

6.  Gourmet Soup Mix.  When Campbell's just isn't good enough.

7.  Gourmet Peppermint Bark! 

8.  AND VINO!!!  It's ALWAYS in season!
So drink up you wino, you...
 Now chop chop and shoppy shoppy!  THERE'S NOT MUCH TIME LEFT!

Got any other last minute gift ideas?  I wanna hear about them!  Help a girl out!!
