If you still need to do some last-minute holiday shopping, you should probably get a move on it. Like, right now, before everything gets way too packed and you end up buying a surplus of iTunes gift cards that nobody actually wants.

To make things easier, we've pulled together all of the shopping guides we've posted in the past month, which include gifts for your BFFs, your significant other's mother, and all of the impossible-to-buy-for people on your list. Also, we've included rundowns of NYC's best gift-giving stores, from jewelry to kitchen supplies to lingerie.

Where to shop for friends, family, and significant others:
· Eight Stores for Unique Jewelry
· Fifteen Lingerie Shops
· Nine Kitchen Supply Stores
· Thirty-Eight Beauty Stores, Spas, and Salons

More specifically, here's what to buy them:
· Ten Gifts Your BFF Really Wants But Wouldn't Buy for Herself
· Ten Gifts for Your Difficult-to-Shop-For, Atypical Parents

And for those people you don't really know that well:
· Ten Gifts for Your Boyfriend's Mom
· Ten Gifts Under $25 for the Office Secret Santa Party
