Here are the top recommend ways to get that last minute shopping FINISHED! 

Less then 2 weeks before Christmas and you haven't even started shopping yet? Never fear!! Here are some tips and ideas on how to get it done!

Opploans.com had some amazingly simple ideas on how to get that shopping done!

1. Amazon Prime

You might have a chance of ordering stuff and having it arrive in time for Christmas. Not only that, but you get free 2-day shipping and could possibly qualify for free one-day or same-day shipping.

2. Order Online, Pick Up In-Store

This option is available through most major retailers, and it’s a great way to make your shopping more efficient. Just select the “pick up in-store” option on their website and then follow the instructions. Usually, they’ll have you go to their Guest/Customer Services area where you’ll be able to pick up your item.

3. Shop During Non-Peak Hours

“Non-peak hours” is retail-speak for “really early or really late.” Basically, don’t go at times when everyone else is going. That way, you won’t have to deal with long lines, and you can hit more stores. It’s really that simple.

4. Gift Boxes

These are subscription services—some of them weekly, some monthly, other quarterly—where you get fun/awesome/delicious stuff delivered to your door.

5. Gift Cards

Now days they are classic!

But lets get real! The best place to nab those perfect, unique gifts is right in downtown Kalamazoo! Take an afternoon and get it that shopping done!
