8 Places To Last-Minute Holiday Shop

Where to grab your last gifts on Christmas and Christmas Eve.


Maybe you've had the stomach flu for two weeks. Or just snapped out of an amnesia spell. Or converted religions recently. Whatever the reason, you're behind on Christmas gifts and the big day is, like, tomorrow. Talk about "eek." Don't worry, we don't judge. And we've totally got you covered.

Here are the places to hit up today and tomorrow.

Christmas Eve

’Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house, not a present was present, not even your spouse’s.

For your sister:
You’re sure to find a gift at Ala Moana Center for her. Grab a cute dress at Forever 21, a sharp new purse at Coach or something sweet and fresh-smelling at LUSH.
Open: 8 a.m.–6 p.m.

For your brother:
The cool, customizable stickers at 3rd Ave Shore are the perfect, personal gift for him to put on his bike, flask, skateboard—you know how he loves to leave his mark.  171 Hāmākua Drive, Kailua
Open: 9 a.m.–6 p.m.

For your aunt:
Windward Mall shops will be open until 6 p.m. today. How much would your artsy aunt love a bohemian trinket from Artlines?
Open: 8 a.m.–6 p.m.

For dad:
Ward Village is open until 6 p.m. today, and we have one word: whiskey. The Liquor Collection is a good bet, or head over to Executive Chef for some gadgets for his next grill-a-thon.
Open: 10 a.m.–6 p.m.

For your BFF:
Kāhala Mall is open until 6 p.m. today and just happens to be one of your bestie’s favorite places to shop (must be the local boutiques and Whole Foods hot bar). Her apartment could use some sprucing up, courtesy of SoHa Living, or something frilly and feminine from Cinnamon Girl will do the trick.
Open: 8 a.m.–6 p.m.

For your mom:
There are always oodles of unique goodies at Paiko to brighten up mom’s kitchen and bring out the gardening goddess in her. 675 Auahi St.
Open: 9:30 a.m.–3 p.m. 

For your boyfriend:
Pealridge Center is open until 6 p.m. The good news? You can pick up the latest video game at GameStop or beach gear at Blue Hawai‘i Surf for him, while also treating yourself to some Sephora swag.
Open: 9 a.m.–6 p.m.


Christmas Day

On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me: an empty box beneath a bare tree.

Wow, you’re really behind this year, aren’t you? One last chance …

Royal Hawaiian Center is open all day Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, lucky for you. Maybe Dad would like something from Leather Soul? Or your girlfriend could use something cute from Fighting Eel? Time is a’ticking, so it’s a good thing there’s an Apple store there for you to grab techie goodies for your BF.
Open: 10 a.m.–10 p.m.
