If you haven’t yet finished your Christmas shopping, time is no longer on your side.
Thankfully, stores and malls have extended store hours to cater to last-minute shoppers. Kohl’s is even staying open 24 hours a day starting this Friday through 6 p.m. Christmas Eve.
This year, more stores are also offering online ordering with in-store pickup, and most retailers will accept orders through early afternoon on Christmas Eve. However, the earlier you shop, the better chance the items you want will be available.
“Last-minute holiday shopping can be stressful, and holiday burnout is a real thing,” said Sara Skirboll, the shopping and trends expert for RetailMeNot. “Avoid the long lines and crazy crowds shopping online and using websites that offer free shipping or in-store pick up.”
If all else fails, there are plenty of restaurant gift card promotions available and we’ve also rounded up 35 awesome gifts that don’t require shipping. Plus, many convenience stores and drug stores will be open on Christmas Day, which is perfect for last-minute stocking stuffers (framed photos and lotto tickets, anyone?).
