Five Last-Minute Gifts Worth Giving

This is it. You have a little over one week to achieve total gift-giving transcendence. Only one problem: you haven’t started yet. Well, we’ve got your back. Below, five last-minute gifts to guarantee success...

UD - Elizabeth and James Serpentine Earrings

FOR THE SNAKE CHARMER

Elizabeth and James Serpentine Earrings

From afar, these look like long, dangly gold earrings. But up close, you’ll see that the design is actually a snakeskin cutout. Giving these should get you to that up-close vantage point.
411:
$450, available at Wilkes Bashford, 375 Sutter St (at Stockton), 415-986-4380

FOR A JAWS AFICIONADO/DENTIST

Shark-Tooth iPhone Case

Fun fact: sharks continually shed their teeth, upwards of 35,000 in a lifetime. Funner fact: Paul Smith did something with all those shark teeth lying around (sort of)—namely, put a print of them onto a leather iPhone cover. Now, about that Jaws ringtone...
411:
$125, available at Paul Smith, 50 Geary St (near Grant), 415-352-3520

FOR BUSTER POSEY

Vintage-Inspired Baseball

Ah, the World Series. It was awesome, it was classic, it was... not played with an old-timey ball. Still, this hand-stitched leather number should be a good reminder of the Giants’ World Series victory. Maybe don’t actually play catch with it.
411:
$38, available at Unionmade, 493 Sanchez St (at 18th), 415-861-3373

FOR THE CAFFEINE FIEND

Sightglass Coffee Subscription

You’re a giver. If you could, you would personally brew morning coffee every day for every one of your friends, relatives and coworkers. Here’s the next best thing: regular delivery of Sightglass’s seasonal roasts. Bonus: fits perfectly into someone’s stocking.
411:
$17-$19/shipment, available at Sightglass Coffee, 270 7th St (at Folsom), 415-861-1313

FOR SOMEONE TIMELESS

Vintage Rolexes at Taylor Stitch

Maybe you know someone who’s constantly late. Or just someone with an embarrassingly naked wrist. Well, here’s your move: a vintage Rolex curated from a shop out of Carmel. There’s a ’58 James Bond Submariner. There’s a ’60 Oyster Perpetual. There’s... a 100% chance the recipient will thank you profusely.
411:
Prices vary, available at Taylor Stitch, 383 Valencia St (at 15th), 415-322-8773
