As a busy woman, I know how hard it can be to find time for things like Christmas shopping. If any of you have left your shopping to the last minute - fear not! It is possible to shop for Christmas gifts at the last minute, and still get excellent gifts that your friends & family will love.

In addition to the above items which all make great gifts, I've got a number of tips for you on how to actually survive shopping for gifts right before Christmas. Here goes:

How to Win at Last Minute Christmas Shopping 

(1) Pick 1 or 2 Stores ONLY
As you can see, my picks above are all from Nordstrom & Bloomingdale's. These are great stores for last minute shopping because of the variety of items available in one store. When you're shopping last minute you do not want to get stuck going to 10 different stores. One-stop shops are the place to be!!

(2) Pick Out Items Online
Shop online to determine what you want to (ideally) get, and arm yourself with a printed list when you actually go to the store. Stores will be crowded, and the last thing you want is to have to aimlessly wander around looking for gift ideas.

(3) Call Stores to Check Availability
Many stores - even during the busy Christmas season - will check stock if you call and give them the product code (that you will have seen during your online research) Better to know in advance if the item you want is available so you can get in and get out and avoid the aforementioned aimless wandering haha.

(4) Call Stores for Holds 
Many stores will put on hold for you the item/items you have called about. Most will keep them behind the counter. This way, you can go straight to the till and not worry about finding things in store! Some stores - like Macy's - even allow you to shop and pay online and just do "pick up" in your local store. This is the biggest time saver there is!

And there you have it!!
 Good luck to everyone with their last minute shopping. And don't forget that it is totally okay to pick up a little something for yourself while you're at it! Personally, I can't get enough of THIS!
