Holiday shopping solutions at Royal Hawaiian Center

Sponsored Edition: Turn the Yuletide

Good news: you're alive.

Bad news: you still have to find gifts for everyone on your list.

Forget the Mayans. The Christmas countdown is still ticking and it says you've got just four days left. That means four days to fight for parking, battle the crowds, then rush home and wrap everything.

Kinda feels like the end of the world is still coming, doesn't it?

Not if you do all your Christmas shopping at Royal Hawaiian Center. It's open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily, including Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, so you'll be covered in case of emergencies.

Gift idea: an Agua Bendita bikini from Allure Swimwear.

Say you completely forget to pick up the family stocking stuffers. Hit up Forever 21 for cute, affordable accessories or Ferrari Store for a wooden Ferrari GT toy car. Heading to a Christmas Day party without a hostess gift? Swing by Island Vintage Organic & Natural for sweet-smelling Lanikai Bath & Body soaps or Honolulu Cookie Company for a holiday-themed shortbread cookie tin.

Oh, and don't worry about wrapping them. Bring your purchases and receipts to the gift-wrapping station next to Zumiez and Philip Rickard Gallery on Level 1 of Building A and get them wrapped for free.

Take advantage of free gift wrapping from noon-10 p.m. through Monday.

Then, if Christmas dinner goes up in smoke or (more likely) no one feels like cooking, you can always feast at one of Royal Hawaiian Center's fine restaurants. Wolfgang's Steakhouse by Wolfgang Zwiener is offering up a juicy prime rib special with Caesar salad, mashed potates and creamed spinach from 11 a.m.-10 p.m. on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Plus, with 10 levels of parking and more than 600 stalls, you are guaranteed to find a space - without stalking a fellow shopper.

So hunker down at Royal Hawaiian Center and avoid all the holiday headache.

This is the lifesaver you've been waiting for.

Royal Hawaiian Center is located at 2201 Kalakaua Ave. Get one hour of free parking with validation, then pay just $1 per hour for the next three hours. Click here for more information.
