Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Look, we're not judging you for procrastinating in your holiday shopping. It happens. But if you are still shopping, you only have a few hours left to get everything done. And it's kinda drizzly outside. It may be time to consider IOU printouts. What should you owe your loved ones? In case you haven't noticed, we've been running lots of gift guides, so we have suggestions for cool moms, curious kids, fabulous gay besties, jetsetters, beauty junkies, stylish couch potatoes, startup dudes, and real families. For the foodies in your life, our friends at Eater have a roundup of five SF-centric food gifts (which you can still snag at the last minute), or ultimate foodie gifts that require a little more planning for the IOU crowd. For the big spenders out there, Curbed has an extreme real estate gift guide.

Whether you're rushing around town, or printing IOUs, it's going to be okay. For those of you heading to Union Square, remember that most stores close by 6 pm this evening. (Bloomingdale's is open until 7 pm.) And when you're done playing Santa and ready to focus on yourself once more, collect your remaining pennies and book yourself a cheap (or expensive) massage. After the holiday frenzy, you've earned it.
