The clock is counting down the days, minutes, and hours left until Christmas. If you are like my hubby, then you are walking around ten days before Christmas asking everyone what the rush is. He doesn’t actually shop until December 23rd or 24th. I don’t understand how there are more people like him out there in this world that aren’t absolutely frantic about finding the perfect gift for everyone on your list. Then you have to worry about crowds, lines, and worse- the item you absolutely want isn’t in stock! So, you go to another store that promises to have 13 left only to find out all 13 were sold within the past 10 minutes. I have anxiety just thinking about being unprepared and this madness has got to stop!
Luckily for people like my hubby who are last minute shoppers, there are stores that are essentially one stop shops for all your holiday needs. Staples is one of them. Yes, the same Staples that sells office supplies. And no, you don’t have to buy everyone on your list office supplies. You can but them things they actually want- like a new cell phone case, or a tablet computer. Maybe even a gift for their pet. Yes, Staples has it all! This holiday season I was able to pick up a few things for myself, including a new Nikon S5200 WiFi camera, an oh so cozy Brookstone couch blanket. Before you get all “why do you need a couch blanket” on me let me tell you- this is THE BEST blanket ever. It has a foot pocket to keep my feet warm and it is large enough to snuggle with my two daughters in with me but narrow enough to not be weighed down to one side of the couch and eventually fall off. Yes. You NEED a couch blanket! So the Brookstone® Pure Bliss™ Quilted Sofa Comforter is perfect! The last thing I picked up was a Sarah Peyton Tree LED with Snow which is perfect for my foyer and had indoor/outdoor capabilities and is completely wireless so you can stick it anywhere! It’s battery operated and gorgeous!
So, if you have last minute holiday shopping to do, head in to Staples. They have something for everyone on your list!
