If you’re looking for a way to simplify your last-minute holiday shopping, Carrie McBride at Apartment Therapy suggests you get everyone the same gift. That may not seem revolutionary, but there’s a trick to doing it right. McBride explains:

…choose something you truly love or think is unique or that solves a problem beautifully. A gift you can stand behind and give your personal endorsement (ideally something you already have).

There’s bound to be an item you’ve purchased that you think everyone should own. Maybe it’s a kitchen tool, a gadget of some kind, or even a food or beverage you think is interesting. Look around your home for inspiration and imagine your Oprah giving away your favourite things.
