If you're still searching for that last minute Christmas gift, help has arrived. Look no further than this week's edition of

TheStreet.com

Martini Chat, in which hosts Chris Edmonds and Eric Gillin come to the rescue of procrastinators everywhere.

Two gift experts -- Bob Zakrzewski, co-founder and president of FindGift.com and Dave Garr of Surprise.com -- will join Eric and Chris to provide their unique perspective on how to find the perfect, last-minute gift for just about anyone (including your in-laws).

On a more serious note, the Martini Chat also will take a look at the highs and lows of 2001 from both an investing and business news perspective.

Joining Chris and Eric to discuss the year that was in the markets will be Vince Boberski, chief economist at RBC Dain Rauscher, Howard Alter of Alter Asset Management, Scott Preston of Research Capital and Marshall Adkins of Raymond James.

And, finally, a group of business journalists will round out the show with their picks of the top business and investing stories of 2001. You won't want to miss a group of highly opinionated writers discussing a year we will all remember for a long time.

The festivities begin at 5 p.m. and can be accessed by clicking -- or is that clinking -- on the dancing martini glass at the top of both

TheStreet.com

and

RealMoney.com

beginning about 4:45 p.m. Come and raise a glass with Chris and Eric.

Let's stay

interactive.
