Any chances of getting holiday shopping done early this year are long gone – but, fear not. With this artful collection of jewelry on hand (from a necklace for Mom to a sparkly cocktail ring for your sister) every woman on your list is covered.

Choose from conversation-starting bracelets, earrings, rings, necklaces, and pendants, and you’ll see why last-minute shopping is not only well worth it, but much appreciated (their smiles will say it all). Plus, shipping is guaranteed before Christmas, so you can say goodbye to gift stress altogether.

Meet Mike, our VP of Audience Development and Syndication. That fancy title means he helps establish Rue’s presence via social networking channels, like our blog. He has to be in-tune with our Members, and is ever-knowledgable about the biggest, of-the-moment social media trends. Check out the gifts he’s picked for those lucky enough to make his list.

For my team: “Nothing says, ‘Get some work done on the weekend!’ like an eye-catching laptop sleeve from Vera Bradley.”

For myself: “I will never forget watching with my late father when Jack Nicklaus won the 1986 Masters. I’d love to experience the tournament in person.”

For my girlfriend: “She would really like diamond earrings, so I’m choosing these cozy and sweet pillows. Plus, what better inspiration for our Words With Friends games?”

For my children: “Teaching kids to be responsible with money is really important, and a piggy bank is a great conversation starter. Matthew and Charlie are identical twins, though, so I’ll need two.”

Find all these gifts (and lots, lots more) in our Get Gifty: Our Holiday Gift Shop Boutique, open now.

Whether your holiday shopping is in full swing or you’re a die-hard December 24 sprinter, it’s essential to stay on top of your list. Luckily, Rue is always there to help.

When you find that perfect gift, be sure to check on a few key pieces of information:

“Ships in” Window
When you find the dress for your holiday soiree or a great cashmere sweater for Mom, be sure to check when it’s expected to head out the door. Since we use different shipping methods on different pieces, some do take longer to send out than others. Checking this window will let you know if the dress won’t make it to you until after the party’s over.

Estimated Date of Delivery
After you order, the date that your package is expected to arrive will be in your order history. This is handy if you need to hide a gift from some (overly) curious eyes.
