It happens to the best of us — forgetting to pick up a gift for someone on your list as the holidays approach.
It’s the last-minute scramble no one looks forward to, especially when the added pressure of coming up with a good gift idea leaves you drawing a blank.
But instead of panicking, let us help by giving you a few suggestions for that person in your life that you accidentally forgot.
