What is open on Christmas Day? Believe it or not if you need to get some last minute gifts, there are two chain stores that are open nationwide today. Walgreens and CVS are open on Christmas Day and you can find something for just about anyone on your very last minute Christmas list in these stores. The store hours for CVS and Walgreens are listed below.
According to NBC News on Dec. 25, Walmart and CVS carry gift cards for those last minute gifts. “Fox and Friends” on Christmas morning did a segment on what you can find in these drug stores to put together a gift. Not just any gift, but a present for someone that is a one of a kind thoughtful gift and that won’t break the bank.
Here are a few ideas for giving a potpourri of things for the folks you have yet to buy for on your list:
Make a gift basket for the man on your list by tossing in shaving gear, men’s cologne and an ice scraper for their vehicle into a gift bag, which you can buy at the store for a few dollars. Throw in some gloves and even those disposable hand warmers to finish off the gift.
Do the same thing for the woman on your list. Get a gift bag and fill it with her favorite soaps, facial products, creams, gloves and a hat. This is a personalized gift for the last minute shopper that still looks as if some thought was put into it.
For the movie lover get a gift bag and fill it with the boxes of candy in the sizes sold at the movies. Put in some hot chocolate, a couple of mugs and a DVD or a gift certificate for a rental movie, which you can get online.
For the new home owner grab a shovel, a bag of ice melting material, a winter welcome mat and some gloves and you have another thoughtful gift. The sky is the limit when shopping in CVS or Walgreens because they have a little bit of everything, even some cool sweat shirts and pajamas.
