You still have plenty of time to shop, and this year you don't even have to stand in line and fight the crowds for that last doll that she'll open and never play with. We hope that you enjoy our gift giving suggestions. Most of the items are linked to stores where you'll be able to purchase, so you don't even have to get out of your jammies.
