Last minute Xmas shopping

This year, with the economic downturn and all, it’s actually turning into a blessing to be so disorganized.  I am finding retailers are falling all over themselves to offer discounts, free shipping, and other incentives at the last-minute.

In years’ past, I have spent hundreds of dollars by this point, most of it well in advance, on sale, etc.  But this year, with no income and a baby, the thought of going out shopping, well, something that never entered my mind. So here I am, with NO shopping done WHATSOEVER, combing the interwebs, scraping for deals.

1800flowers has a good one – promo code M99 will get you free shipping.  Many of their plants are already discounted.  Etsy has some good stuff, too. Any other tips? Please post ’em for the broke and overwhelmed.
