Best Last-Minute Gifts

Best: Your Closet
2nd Best: Pulp
1803 14th St. NW, (202) 462-7857
If you’re organized, there’s a box of quirky, useless items in your closet left over from birthdays past. If you’re not a proficient re-gifter, Pulp has a variety of fun, cheap presents, including a game called “baby shower” (you catapult tiny babies into a target), a toy unicorn that comes with little people to impale on its horn, and wind-up sushi. While you’re there, don’t forget to pick up a funny card—goodness knows you aren’t going to bother writing something clever yourself. And if some of these gifts come back to you eventually, well, you can’t pretend to be surprised.
