You’ve spent the last few months hunting down (or DIY-ing) the perfect gifts for everyone on your list, but now it’s your turn to indulge. With a few new gift cards likely taking up residence in your wallet — and maybe even a little bit of extra cash — it’s totally possible. Oh yeah, plus all those crazy post-Christmas sales? Game. On. But with things finally winding down after all the holiday craziness, hitting the stores might be the last thing on your to-do list. Hoards of people, endless scrounging and lines that rival those on Black Friday — thanks, but no thanks.
