Las Cosas Kitchen Shoppe

Hours: Mon.-Fri. 10 a.m.-7 p.m., Sat. 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Sun. noon-5 p.m.

A solid, well-designed garlic press makes a surprisingly fantastic holiday gift for the right person. As does a salad spinner. Or a Krups manual pump espresso machine. Las Cosas is teeming with cookware to knock any chef (or professional water boiler) off your list pronto. Who doesn't need a taco rack? Really.

Santa Fe Beeswax Candle Co.

173 Paseo de Peralta • (505) 983-1548

Hours: Mon.-Fri. 10 a.m.-7 p.m., Sat. 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Sun. noon-5 p.m.

Yes, candles. You really can't go wrong with them. If your last-minute is more like last-second, a nicely scented, renewably (and locally) made, smokeless, dripless candle is a quick and thoughtful gift. Plus, Santa Fe Beeswax Candle Co. also offers ceramics, Asian art, jewelry, textiles and more if you just can't bear buying the same thing for everyone you know.

Queen's Ransom

564 N. Guadalupe • (505) 986-9091

Hours: Mon.-Fri. 10 a.m.-7 p.m., Sat. 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Sun. noon-5 p.m.

Rushed shopping can still be luxurious. Shower your most deserving loved ones with designer duds, killer handbags or conversation-starting jewelrygifts so fine, the receiver will think you spent months instead of minutes scouring stores. That's living large.

Santa Fe Music and Piano

556 N. Guadalupe • (505) 989-8998
santafemusicandpiano.com
Hours: Mon.-Fri. 10 a.m.-7 p.m., Sat. 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Sun. noon-5 p.m.

Give a kid a CD and he can listen to music for an hour. Give a kid a Lone Star Mariachi Guitar made in the Sierra Madre mountains of Mexico, and you can listen to him strum his way into the hearts of New Mexicans as he reaches superstardom never before seen in the mariachi tradition. At least, that's what you'll be telling yourself while he's learning to play the thing. Whatever the instrument, and whatever the level of the musician, Santa Fe Music and Piano is stocked. Offers lessons, too.
