My guess is that over the next week and a half, many of the folks at Smith Mountain Lake will be doing a lot of last minute Christmas shopping. The deals are good, the weather crisp and motivating, and there are always those few people who are hard to shop for. If you are anything like the rest of us you have one or two loved ones that are hard to buy for. Perhaps they are eccentric. Maybe they have everything already. Whatever the reason, it can be tough to find just that right gift. Well, we think that the list below will solve that problem. From limousine rides to opera tickets, the list below contains a host of fabulous ideas for unique and last minute Christmas gifts. Have fun shopping!
