The clock is ticking and it’s the last few days ‘til Christmas. And while most people are done with their holiday shopping, and are, in fact, putting the last finishing touches on their lovingly wrapped presents, there are many still who have yet to even start drafting their Christmas lists!

With only a few days left, it’s cutting it close! But don’t give up just yet! Completing your Christmas shopping may be challenging, but it’s not an impossible task. To make it just in time – with your sanity intact by the end of it – you have to take a more focused approach. Plan and prepare.

Last minute Christmas shopping may be stressful, but Univers at One Rockwell and Power Plant Mall promises to make it feel less of a chore and more of an adventure! 

Here are a few tips to planning and surviving the mad Christmas rush!



Time is of the essence. Before heading out to the mall, draft your list and don’t forget to check it twice! It’ll help you from feeling overwhelmed when you’re finally at the mall looking for the perfect gifts for your friends and loved ones. Plus, it ensures that you won’t forget anyone!



With a list handy, you can now plot the stores you need to visit. Going online on and checking the directory of boutiques can help you see where your favorite stores are located.

For this season, look beyond the basic and the generic when it comes to your picks, and choose something thoughtful for your family, friends and loved ones.

For the moms and titas who are the full embodiment of the “hostess with the mostest,” check out the quirky home items from NY-based lifestyle brand, Areaware, and lovely decoupage art from John Derian, available at Univers, One Rockwell.



For those with a range of interests – from fashion to fiction, design and pop culture, how about books from UNIVERSMarket?




And for the rebels, show them a little love with a care package from LA Brüket, which takes care of their skin and their tattoos.
