Everyone knows: When you can't think of what to get someone for Christmas -- whether the host of a holiday house party or the man or woman who has everything -- a safe bet is always booze. The following are some of our favorite liquor-related places and gifts to make it a very merry Christmas indeed.

Best Wine Shop for Procrastinators: Our go-to place for buying vino last minute right before that holiday party we forgot we were invited to, The Wine House in West L.A. not only has an extensive selection from the 2006 Las Rocas de San Alejandra Garnacha ($10.99) to a 1945 Lafite Rothschild ($2,499.98) but a helpful staff that you can call on at the back counter for suggestions as well as a tasting room with 32 different selections if you'd like to try before you buy. And they even have gift baskets if you don't want to do the work.
