Tips for last minute shoppers

BALTIMORE - If you still haven't finished your shopping we've got some tips to take some of the stress out of last minute shopping.

First, make a plan and stick to it. Write down a list of who you need to buy for and come up with several gift ideas in case your first choice is gone.

Pick a convenient location. Malls are the obvious choice and large stores will give you the most variety.

Also, be resourceful. It pays to be tech savvy. Look for coupons online and download apps that will show you where the sales are.

Be sure to be decisive, this is no time to sweat the small stuff like which color they will like better. Follow your instincts.

To avoid crowds shop during the off hours, a lot of stores are staying open past midnight. So, even 24 hours between now and Christmas Eve.
