Z. Cioccolato is open til miidnight on Christmas Eve

For the super-last minute, nothing beats a solid online purchase. The Fruit Guys is a local farm delivery service that was started out of South San Francisco. It's burgeoned dramatically and now has centers in Phoenix, Philadelphia, and Chicago — so if you have relatives in the Mid-West and East Coast that "don't get" the whole local food thing, give 'em a little goose. Fruit boxes run as little as $26 per month, and you can cease delivery whenever you wish. (Note: If your rels don't live in one of those cities, the food might come from a little further away, but the Fruit Guys try to utilize local farms wherever they can.)
