Hey, no one is saying that you procrastinated when it came to your Christmas shopping. But Santa’s wish list may have not been entirely filled. At least, not yet. There’s still time to get everything you need for the kiddos, your S.O., your MIL and anyone else you still need to buy for. So how can you get it all done with less than a week to go? Don’t stress, mama. Target’s got you covered.

Target has ways galore to get your holiday shopping done — with time to spare. If you’re a shop-in-the-store type of girl, Target is extending their hours until December 24, giving you from 7 a.m. until 10 or 11 p.m. (depending on your local store) daily. You can also place an order on and pick it up at your local store that very same day. And that’s without a shipping charge!

Of course, some of us aren’t into leaving our cozy Christmas décor filled homes. That’s okay. Order at by 12 p.m. on Fri., Dec. 22 and you’ll get your purchase by Saturday the 23rd. That is, as long as you pick express 1-day shipping. But wait, there’s more! If you place your order by 11:59 p.m. CST on Wed., Dec. 20, you have a “Free Holiday Shipping” option. And you’ll still get your order by the 23rd.

What happens if you have no clue what to buy for your co-worker, friend or relative? Again, don’t stress.’s GiftNow button is here to help. Here’s how this completely cool little button works — find a gift that the recipient might like and click on GiftNow. Instead of the IRL gift, the giftee will get an e-gift in their email inbox. When they get the notification, the recipient can accept it and have it shipped right away, change the size/color and have it shipped afterward or have an entirely new gift shipped. Oh, and don’t worry about feeling oddly awkward that your cousin traded the cozy quilt you picked out for a new blender. GiftNow won’t tell you which decision the recipient made. Yay!
