Some people do all their holiday shopping in one day. Others do it at their leisure over the course of weeks. Then there are the procrastinators, who do last-minute shopping at the grocery store. They are good people — they just need a little help.

Winter would be lost without a new stack of books to enjoy while wrapped up in a blanket, and you can always feel good about sending one more book into the world. This year we bring a little less fiction and a little more of the rest of the written word. So bring on the frightful weather, and help your giftees enjoy it.

 

Tenth of December By George Saunders. Random House, $26. Short stories.

The ongoing proliferation and fragmentation of music production, especially nonlabel productions, makes choosing the top 12 albums of 2012 an impossible and foolish task — but here at EW, we’re OK with attempting the impossible and playing the fool sometimes. And as far as last-minute gifting goes, there aren’t many things as easy to give as music — it’s affordable and ubiquitous, whether it’s a download, CD or vinyl.

Felt Your Heart

Holiday Market, 10 am to 6 pm every Saturday and Sunday 10 am to 4 pm and Christmas Eve

let’s face it: A good bottle of booze makes the holidays that much merrier, and what could be easier than a quick pop in to the liquor shop on your way to a party or a family gathering? EW caught up with Elliot Martinez, of BoozeWeek and Izakaya Meiji bartender-dom fame, to pick out his dirty half-dozen for the holidaze. Just don’t ask him to recommend a “good” vodka, unless you want him to collapse into a pile of giggles (and that’s before the tasting, sniffing and swirling began).
