Your 2012 Last-Minute Gift Guide

Most of your gifts: purchased. A few of your gifts: not purchased. So here are five last-minute items to grab in order to avoid all-out gift panic in the next several days.

UD - Kevin Long Luxe In-Home Dinner

FOR THE DINNER PARTY THROWER

Kevin Long Luxe In-Home Dinner

Dinner parties are a lot of fun. Their one drawback: the work involved. Enter BNEG’s Kevin Long (Gem, Empire), who will craft a luxe, multicourse, at-home dinner party for up to 10 people with a small staff. Think: Maine sea urchin, Wagyu beef roast and paired wines. Nothing says dinner party like urchin.
411:
$500/person, available through BNEG, 3 Boylston Pl, 617-338-4343

FOR THE CORN FANATIC

Dill Pickle and Marshmallow Popcorn

Somewhere along the way, popcorn became more than just popped corn. The evidence: the six-packs of gourmet popcorn from the just-opened Corn & Co., where you can choose from over 250 flavors. If dill pickle, marshmallow and bacon don’t scream “gift me” for the corn fan in your life, you’ve got 247 chances left.
411:
$25-$35, available at Corn & Co. at the Burlington Mall, 75 Middlesex Tpke, Burlington, 718-221-7100

FOR THE COFFEE SNOB

Gourmet Coffee from the Cape

Coffee. Life’s elixir. So if you have one last gift to grab on your way down to the Cape, you can procure some local black gold via the Art of Roasting’s sampler packs, with staples like Kenya AA, Guatemala Antigua and even some decaf stuff. Decaf: still a mystery to us.
411:
Prices vary, available at The Art of Roasting online or around Cape Cod

FOR DAD

Dream Car Driving in NH

You owe a lot to Dad (see: born, being). And since his bucket list contains the entry “spend an afternoon driving a Lamborghini or Ferrari on a closed racetrack,” the Exotic Driving Experience in New Hampshire should be perfect. Also, it’s easier than gift wrapping a supercar.
411:
$169 and up, available through the Exotic Driving Experience at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway, 1122 Route 106 N, Loudon, NH, 855-822-0149

FOR THE BUBBLY-LEANING OENOPHILE

Champagne: A Global History

And for that friend who always has killer bubbly, expand the breadth of their knowledge with local spirits writer Becky Sue Epstein’s lauded Champagne: A Global History. If you do, be prepared for new mini lectures from said friend. You’ve been warned.
411:
$17, available at New England Mobile Book Fair, 82-84 Needham St, Newton Highlands, 617-527-5817
