T'was the day before Christmas, and most retailers are open until dinner time, giving you time to buy those last minute gifts.
For the foodies – Trader Joe's and Byerly's. Joe's is loaded with lovely, can't-find-anywhere-else treats like Cookie Butter ($3.49) and Fig Butter ($2.99). Individually, these make excellent stocking stuffers, or you can pack up an inexpensive container from Michaels with a bunch of treats and make your own gift baskets.
At Byerly's you'll find even more fancy foodie items like Pink Himalayan salt, truffle oil, blue cheese stuffed olives, and Byerly's own line of sauces, seasonings and spice rubs.
Trader Joe's is open until 5 PM, Byerly's is open until 4 PM, and Michaels is open until 6 PM.
For the practical people in your life – Menards. They have the most useful and inexpensive stocking stuffers for anyone on your gift list. Just about everything at Menards is on sale now, plus they have a massive clearance section in each store where you'll find things like portable light fixtures for $5.
Shop now until stores close for the holidays at 5 PM.

You'll find jewelry for buy one get one free, classic toys for the kids for $10 and under, Christmas tree ornaments, kitchen gadgets for $20 or less, and every tea and wine accouterment ever made.
You'll also find stuff for your holiday parties, like unbreakable stemware for $3 and treats from all over the world. Fun Party Tip: load up on new and untried snack from Trader Joe's, Byerly's and World Market and have your guests vote for their favorites.
