Last Minute Gift Ideas for Well Meaning People

The holidays are a time for family togetherness, ambiguous religious symbolism, and crippling stress over gift giving. Sure, you could just go out and buy everyone the perfect gift, but store-bought presents are just so mainstream, you know?

*And, occasionally, Craigslist.

A piano
