    Still shopping for Christmas? Heads up that most of the items in this post won't arrive in time for Dec. 25, but check out our last-minute version of this gift guide with more ideas that are more likely to arrive in time!"

    1. A deck of The Golden Girls tarot cards — each of our favorite ladies has her own suit — so your own bestie can look to the future while enjoying their favorite TV show of the past. I just checked the cards myself, and I'm seeing your recipient sending you a note that says "thank you for being a friend."
