Only three more business days until Christmas weekend. Time to run to a nearby store or take advantage of Amazon Prime's 2-day free shipping. I've put together a gift list with items that should be easily accessible and that most of the adult women in your life will appreciate. Now, get crackin'.

5. Lululemon Gift Card

I usually hate recommending gift cards, but Lululemon is acceptible. It's THE preferred workout (or lounge) clothing for good reason - the fit, design and unique moisture-wicking fabrics are the best in the market.

18. A New Experience

Gifting an experience is gifting a memory you will share forever. Tickets to a show, an afternoon sail or even bungee jumping (if she's into that) are worth more than any one item.

I personally recommend an EatWith dinner - foodie-centric group dinners hosted by excellent chefs in most cities around the world. I've done it and loved it - I ate the best food, drank specially-made cocktails and imported beer and had interesting conversations with several really cool people.
