TRM's Christmas Gift Guide :: An Overview For Last Minute Shopping!

Christmas is upon us! I'm finally done with my shopping, but I know that many of you are late shoppers and enjoy the hustle and bustle right before the big day. To mark the end of my Christmas Gift Guide for 2012, I put all of my gift guide sponsors in this one post for you so you can easily go through my gift recommendations for this year. I realize that some of these are only available online and wouldn't arrive in time for Christmas, but at least you may discover some amazing new shops and companies next time you need a gift! To find a local retail location for any of these, click to read my reviews and get further information.

I've also included just a few more recommendations that were not reviewed as part of this gift guide, but still offer up amazing gifts for everyone on your list. This is not an inclusive list only because I love a lot more brands that I have reviewed or featured in the past and loved , but it's a great start and has something for every person in the family!
