I’ll admit it: I have most definitely been one of those people at the supermarket buying gift cards on Christmas Eve.
I wish I had an explanation for you. But, I don’t. In fact, I do it on purpose. Maybe it’s all the Christmas movies I watched growing up, but I love the feeling of being in the stores with EVERYBODY else. I find immense joy in being able to shop at 11:30 p.m. for no apparent reason–rushing to find the perfect gift for that special someone, while playing the Nutcracker Russian Dance song in my head. Even the grumpy people make it feel like Christmas!
So I thought I’d share my favorite last-minute stores to shop the week before Christmas! Just for fun…this is NOT a sponsored post.
You’ll need to use the store locator for these, but my Kohl’s is open until 12 and 1 A.M. during this time of year. They have everything from clothes to housewares, jewelry, and fragrances!
Target is a close second often open until 11 P.M. and 12 A.M. I really love target’s toy, electronic, and kids clothing sections.
Many Walmarts are open 24hrs regardless of the season. This is my last-minute stop for stocking stuffers. They have tons of fun stuff at excellent prices from chapstick to gum, I’m sure they even have pretend coal… you know for the naughty ones ;).
And when all else fails… You can spot me at the grocery store on Christmas Eve buying hundreds of dollars worth of gift cards and tiny gift bags! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays Mamas!
