It’s the final stretch of the holiday shopping marathon — and once again, Dec. 25 seemingly crept up on the calendar. When it comes to shopping for the best last-minute gifts, procrastinators and indecisive shoppers don’t have to put up with frenzied store crowds or premium prices for expedited shipping.
Enter BOPIS, a.k.a. the hassle-free option to buy online and pick up in store. Major retailers such as Best Buy, Nordstrom, Sephora, Target and others offer free in-store or curbside pickup, so you can quickly add items to your virtual cart and pick up last-minute items when you swing by to get your goods.
Prefer not to leave the house? Get the A-list treatment and enlist an on-demand delivery service such as Instacart, Postmates or Shipt to drop off your order right to your doorstep. And if all else fails, you can instantly deliver a gift card and let your recipients shop for themselves.
