There are many reasons many of us haven't finished or started our Christmas shopping and as they say, don't sweat the small stuff.

No matter what your reason is, if you're looking for last-minute gifts, you will have plenty of company.

We can't help you with the traffic, but this list compiled by WFMY News 2 and CBS News may help ease the pain of last minute shopping.

-- If you have a bookworm on your list who's never without their Nook or Kindle, head to the Barnes & Noble website or the Kindle bookstore and navigate to the book of your choice and click on the "Give as a gift" button. Nothing says lovin' like the latest Jay Greene book!

-- And what could be better than giving other people the chance to make a difference? Buy a gift card at, an online charity aggregator. It has over 1,000 charities in its database, from education to disaster relief where your friend can direct the gifted money to the organization that resonates with them.

-- Consider getting the music-lover in your life a one-year subscription to Pandora One for $36 bucks a month for ad-free listening. For movie buffs, a one month subscription to Netflix starts at $7 bucks.
