Last Minute Shopping // Gifts That Will Deliver In Time

December 19, 2019


Erin Schrader

Another year has rolled around, and another final week of panic has set in. One of these year’s I’m actually going to stick to my goal of having my Christmas shopping done by the beginning of December. But guess what? This year is not that year. I officially have LESS than one week to get all of my shopping done [spoiler alert- the list of who needs to be bought for is longer than the list of who’s done]. Next year: more shopping, less eating cheese.

Thankfully the good people at several stores are still setup to get you [and me] our gifts in time if we order quick! We’ve rounded up a list of those stores and made lists of some of our favorite items that are still available for gifting! Grab that hot cocoa, slip into something comfy, and let’s get to last minute shopping together!
