Tell me I'm not the only one who didn't think of a gift for someone, but they call you up and are all like "Hey I just wanted to bring by a little something my dog got for your dog..." Or "here is a gift card for the nicest restaurant in town, for my neighbor of 6 months." Ok so that second example didn't actually happen... but I'm not going to lie, that would be awesome.
So if you're like me and you were so busy you forgot to add someone to your list or you have a white elephant gift to pick up, here are some ideas (under $30) that can save you from looking like a jack ass when someone else had time to come up with a completely sweet and thoughtful gift.
For the Wino
P.S. Resist the urge to buy Sutter Home, even though I'm personally a big fan of the cheap wines... Kendall-Jackson is a great bottle just over $10. If you still want to go cheap, head to World Market and find a cheap wine no one has heard of... ha!
For Your Girlfriend, Boss, or a sweet neighbor lady

Another option is an art print with a nice matted frame. There are tons of art prints on Etsy that are instant downloads you can have printed at a local store. You can also find some cute free printables online, like this one, which I have printed for a gift before and my friend absolutely loved it!
Last but not least, you can always do the handmade approach, kind of like my cookie boxes. Even if you aren't much of a baker, people love the extra effort. You can always disguise your not-so-hot baking abilities by having really nice packaging and a personalized note. :)
Also good to have around the house for last minute gifts are sets like this EOS Lip Balm Multipack or Wine bottle outfits, just in case.
So what am I missing, anyone have any other great last minute gift ideas to add?
