While my mom got better presents, most of these shopping sprees still took place during the last hours stores are open before Christmas. Many years LL Bean (open 24/7/365) saved our butts! I don't know what we would have done if we didn't live near Freeport. I loved these shopping sprees with my dad. Our energy was kept aloft by all of the other frenzied, last-minute shoppers who buzzed by us, making their rounds through the stores. Next year, I'll be home for Christmas for the first time in 4 years and I can't wait to keep the tradition alive.
This last minute shopping thing has somehow stuck with me even though I'm normally a planner. For the past few years I have found myself getting rush delivery and trying desperately to find the right thing at the last moment. And so I bring you part one of my two part "running a little late" gift guide. I hope it helps you to find the right gift for that special someone!
