We're bringing you tips and tricks to Celebrate Smarter this holiday season. Check it out.
We’ve all been there. The holiday shopping should have been done yesterday. All the "ship by" dates have passed and you've still got people on your list.
Clouds parting. We've rounded up some thoughtful last-minute gift ideas that will get there in time. Phew.
Why it’s smart: Three words: Movie. Theater. Popcorn. Gift card delivered right to their email. We’ve proved our point.
Why it’s smart: Music without commercials is music to your ears. A subscription also lets them download and listen to music offline. Handy for airplanes and limited data plans.
Why it’s smart: They get a fresh pair every month and a workaround to one of life's greatest mysteries. Plus, these are made in Austin using eco-friendly practices.
Why it’s smart: For your creative friend, picking the supplies is half the fun. And you wouldn’t deprive your friend of fun. Send this card right to their inbox.
Why it’s smart: There are people out there who actually like to do chores. For the rest of us, there’s help.
Why it’s smart: Unlimited access to online classes taught by the greats like Anna Wintour, Simone Biles, and Annie Leibowitz to name a few. And you thought your college professors were great.
Why it's smart: Etsy is where the makers are, so mostly everything is either unique or handmade. So your friend can buy something special and support an artist at the same time.
Why it’s smart: This site asks 6 questions to help figure out what wines to order. It’s personal, and you don’t want to get it wrong.
Why it’s smart: Ask any parent with a nice rug. Making slime from scratch is dangerous business. This company delivers a fresh supply of designer slime (it's a thing) each month. Slime fix, fixed.
Why it’s smart: This fresh produce subscription box helps prevent food waste caused when ugly produce is tossed. Like most misfits, they're just as good, only a bit misunderstood. *Delivery not available to every state — check their site.
Why it’s smart: This giving platform makes it easy to give to a cause by bundling multiple like-minded charities into a fund. They vet the charities so you know if the money is being used effectively.

Slow clap for the friend who stepped up to host this year’s potluck or ugly sweater party. It takes time and effort to plan a shindig, so you can’t show up empty handed.
White elephant gift exchanges used to be about battling it out for the funniest, most useless gift in the room.
Your family loves you no matter what. But it never hurts to score some extra brownie points.
