If you've realized that only 8 bottles remain in your wine advent calendar, we don't have to tell you that things are getting serious.

Don't waste time wondering how you can convince the fam that New Year's gifts are a thing. Enjoy our third annual gift to you: A guide with our favorite gifts for your whole list.

For the Friend Who Loves a Good Cleanse


A GIFT CERTIFICATE TO CLEAN JUICE. A jump start to 2019's liquid meal challenge, a year's supply of acai bowls or just enough dough to finally represent her favorite brand in a cute t-shirt will be much appreciated by your friend who loves Jesus as much as she loves her size 2 jeans. More here.

For the Home Fit for a Five-Page Spread


A PIECE FROM THE VIETRI COLLECTION AT ONE ELEVEN MAIN. The queen whose castle is a two-story craftsman will appreciate beautiful platters, plates, dishware and candles to fill the nooks and crannies on her built-in shelves. And for her pack of four-legged jesters, One Eleven Main has toys that she won't mind seeing lay around the house.

For Those With Patriotism on Display


A HERITAGE FLAG. Nothing says you put thought into a gift like a handcrafted item. Lie better with something from Heritage Flag, and revel silently in your cleverness each time you see it hanging in its new place of honor on their wall. If they're a renter, maybe try a “For the Love of Whiskey” T-shirt, which goes great with their favorite bottle of scotch and a picky landlord.

For the Girl Who Lives to Stand Out


LILLY PULITZER. Whether her natural habitat is on the couch or at a Forte class, a dose of Lilly will make sure she doesn't blend in. Pink of the Pines is the last-minute stop for fun patterns on everything from jammies to Swell bottles and agendas, to a new set of luggage she'll be able to spot on any carousel.

For The One Who Practices a Mantra


CLASSES AND/OR SWAG FROM HOT ASANA. Help them balance their chakras and their wardrobe with prepaid classes and branded gear. With locations all over the country, locally in Southern Pines and West End, using their gift at this hot yoga studio will be no sweat.

For The Adventure-Seeker


A TRIP TO CUBA. If you've run out of gift ideas after 5, 10 or 20 years of marriage, skip the monogrammed bathrobe and surprise her with a last-minute trip to Cuba for an adventure she'll never forget. A ready made itinerary will make it seem like you’ve been planning this trip for months. She’ll love every romantic second — and maybe even send you a postcard. More Here.

For The One Who's Always Hangry


GOURMET JERKY FROM SAGE HARVEST. Some people enjoy receiving things they can cherish forever. The rest just want to stuff their faces. Give the perpetual snacker a substantial gift from Sage Harvest. Pick a tried-and-true favorite, treat them to something new, or wrap up an assorted gift box. They'll get the added bonus of knowing their gift is going to help support the store's mission, care for orphans around the world.

For Those Who Don't Know Your Secret


STOCKING STUFFERS FROM THIS LITTLE PIGGY. Adorable little snoopers putting their own Christmas magic at risk? Play Santa up until Christmas Eve at This Little Piggy. While the elves are putting the finishing touches on hand-carved yoyos and kazoos, you'll be filling your cart with what your kids really want — unicorn tea sets, tiny tool sets, color-changing umbrellas and tutus in every color of the rainbow. Stuff it, Tinsel and Rudy.

For The Queen of Accessorizing


LITERALLY ANYTHING FROM MONKEES OF THE PINES. If you're friends with someone who can make a $15 dress look pulled together, you know she'll appreciate statement peices like new shoes, a showstopper watch or a Tory Burch bag. Luxe lotions and scents will make sure she feels as good as she looks. More here.

For The King of Rock


A NEW AX FROM CASINO GUITARS. Is your man a freak in the sheets, and an Elvis impersonator in the streets? Fulfill the aspiring performer's wildest dreams with a brand-new Fender American Performer Stratocaster or a Kala Uke to make you swoon — epic sideburns and extra-wiggly hips not included. See Casino's full spread of last-minute ideas here.

For The One Who Keeps it Extra Virgin


AN ARRAY OF FLAVORS FROM PINEHURST OLIVE OIL. The chef in your life deserves more than another boring baking dish. Spice it up with something you'll both benefit from with flavored olive oils, sauces, honeys, pastas and more from Pinehurst Olive Oil. Mix and match according to flavors you know they love, or fill a basket with adventurous surprises.

For The One Who Looks Cute at the Barre


GOOIES FROM THE PURE BARRE BOUTIQUE. Why fill her stocking when all she really needs are more sticky socks? Whether she's looking for a new fitness routine or has already mastered her tuck, a gift certificate from Pure Barre is all Santa's printer needs to produce.

For The O.G.


CLASSES FROM JAZZERCISE. Jazz up her life with classes or a membership to sweat it out old school with a workout that burns up to 800 calories in one hour. Jazzercise is high energy, full body and complete entertainment masked as a workout for the woman who isn't cut out for the normal gym scene. Buy her a few classes or a unlimited monthly membership so she can keep her glutes as tight as the grasp on her youth.

For The Local Who Needs to Get Out More


AN EXPERIENCE AT THE PINEHURST RESORT. There are people who live here for years without taking advantage of all the best that Pinehurst Resort has to offer. Don't let your friends be those people. Get them a gift certificate that will buy them a relaxing day at the spa, brunch with their sweetie, a swing at No. 2 or a shopping spree in the gift shop.

For the One Makes You Feel Lucky


SERVICES FROM THE LASER INSTITUTE OF PINEHURST. Can’t believe you’re the guy she’s chosen to bless with her beauty? We can’t either. Show your undying appreciation with these stocking stuffers (starting at $15) or refills on favorite products that will make her feel as beautiful as you tell her she is every day.

If you have no idea what to buy, put any amount on a gift card for facials, fillers, laser treatments and Botox. More here.

For The Perpetual Party Host


UNIQUE HOME ACCESSORIES FROM ELOISE TRADING CO. You're always sneaking iPhone photos of her table for your own Pinterest followers. Get some new material by gifting her bake-and-serve ware for all of her party hosting needs — or a Corkcicle for keeping her wine cool as she handles all of the things. While you're at ETC, pick up a small gift for her man, too.

For The One Who Overuses #NailedIt


A LOCAL CULINARY TOUR. For the love of God, get them out of the kitchen and in to see a professional. The Classic Pinehurst Tour is a favorite to be enjoyed alone or together. You'll stop at several Pinehurst Resort locations, sampling small plates and craft beers, with a stop at the Village Wine Shop to round out the afternoon. Book a tour or buy gift certificates here.

For The Youngest and Oldest on Your List


ACCESSORIES FROM APRICOT LANE. Your daughter and your mother have probably failed to mention that they truly love to dress alike. Find them something they'll both be proud to wear at Apricot Lane.

Mention The Sway for a special discount on your purchase when you shop in store, and follow along with their 12 Days of Christmas deals happening through Christmas Eve.

For The Fitness Fanatic or Gym Newbie


HELP FROM THE CREW AT FIRSTHEATH FITNESS. Our super-official survey revealed that people do in fact want their stockings filled with fitness, or something to help their aching bodies get through to the next workout.

:: Guilt the person who has been talking about going to the gym for years with the gift of a free membership. ($55/month)

:: Connect the person who spends all their time watching other people at the gym with a personal training session (holiday specials start at $216 for 8 sessions.)

:: Relax the uptight gym rat who never stretches with a massage ($120 for two 1-hour sessions).

For Your Glam Squad


A UNIQUE FIND FROM ECLECTIC ON 5. The woman who doesn’t limit her wardrobe to the season’s hottest trends knows that many of the best gifts in life are vintage. Find her the elegance and charm she deserves with clothing, jewelry or home goods from Eclectic on 5. From furs to handbags, you’ll find something no one else in town has so she can (continue to) dress to impress.

There you have it — NOW DO IT TO IT.

We'll see you Monday.
