One-stop Christmas shopping

I have long had a theory that all your Christmas shopping could potentially all be done in one store, at one time, if you wanted to get it all over and done with in one fell swoop.

The store in question would be either a very large bookstore-stationer’s, or a very large pharmacy/drugstore – both of these having a wide enough range of merchandise to suit a wide range of tastes and budgets. 

Here’s how it would work: you prepare a comprehensive list of everyone you want to buy Christmas presents for.  You take this list with you on a day where you have two to four hours free to spare.  Then you walk into that store, get out your list and start shopping for the name that appears on the top of the list.

“Something for Susan.  Okay, let’s go look for some perfume for her…maybe a Tresor gift set…some of this upscale lip moisturiser looks good…” and so forth.  You simply wander the store thinking, “What would Susan like?” until you have the gifts selected for Susan.  You carry them to the counter, arrange for the staff to hold them, then consult your list and go shopping for the next person.

It’s certainly one way of getting everything done and out of the way!  I’ve never tried this myself – I prefer a wider range of stores – but I can see how it could work!
