Did you check your list? Did you check it twice?



It's the 11th hour, and I know some of you are in a panic. Did you check your list? Did you check it twice? Have no fear—I have a one-stop shopping extravaganza to fulfill all of your last-minute holiday gift needs, and the store is open until 6 p.m. on Christmas Eve. Unhinged (2165 S. Highland Drive, 801-467-6588, UnhingedSLC.com) has it all for both the gals and the guys on your list. The shop has clothing, shoes, accessories, jewelry, toiletries, candles and more. They carry scads of locally made and vintage treasures, to boot. Let's stuff those stockings!


The Paddy Wax Apothecary candle ($19) in blue sage & lavender is what heaven must smell like. I may have stuffed my own stocking with one. (OK, I totally did!) And don't forget to check out the other scents available.


These one-of-a-kind rings made from estate-sale silverware ($20-$28) make a bold statement. Since every ring is different, you'll be sure to find the right one for anyone on your list, Jack or Jill. The selection is mind-bogglingly wonderful and varied.


The fun and whimsical Yelete socks ($1.99) are on sale, so sock up on them (pun intended). Keep your loved ones' tootsies warm and lookin' good this winter. And, at these prices, you can afford to buy everyone a pair!


Who can resist vintage Avon aftershave ($7.50-$10) from the '70s and '80s in vintage car containers? They come in their original boxes and cannot disappoint! They are so cool, you may be tempted to keep one for your own collection.


The Plain Jane surgical steel circle earrings ($12) and matching necklace ($20) are made locally. They're modern, with a streamlined design, yet delicate and feminine. Given individually or as a set, they're sure to make her happy.

So happy shopping, my last-minute friends! May your days be merry and bright.
