We were much too busy launching a lil something called NothingMajor.com to put together a proper gift guide for the 2012 holidays, but here we are with a few days before the holiday break with some time on our hands, so why not?
It's nearly too late to buy anything that might arrive by Christmas Eve, if that's what you're shooting for, but these gift ideas (guaranteed to please any staff member at Nothing Major HQ) are likely to score even if they arrive somewhere closer to New Year's Eve. Good people of the internet, I bring you Nothing Major's first annual, last minute gift guide.
