You swore it would be different this time. You've changed, really you have--or at least that's what you want your friends and family to think. Yet here you are, stuck empty-handed at the giftiest time of the year. Forget about gift cards and last-minute gift sets that scream, "Yeah, I just got this on the way here, Mom," and instead head on over to Kettle Art (2714 Elm St.), as they solve all your gift-giving problems with Holiday Presence. A gallery sale for the last-minute shopper, Kettle has awesome original works of art available, most for under $100 (cash only). The gallery is open from 7 to 10 p.m. Thursday, with special Christmas Eve hours 7 to 9 p.m. Call 214-573-7622 or visit kettleart.com.
