Did the holiday season sneak up on you, too? Unlike organized gift-givers, we're less likely to start planning for Hanukkah immediately after Yom Kippur, and prone to cramming all of our Christmas purchases into Christmas Eve. Fear not, fellow shoppers. Instead of succumbing to the annual bout of anxiety, we've compiled a list of hassle- and line-free places to pick up something for everyone on your list: from your newest sister-in-law to your hard-to-shop-for great aunt. There are only five more shopping days left, people. We're here to tell you how to make them count.
Designer duds from HUB Clothing
It's hard to overestimate how excited Phoenix's fashionable are to have retailer HUB Clothing take up residency in the storefront recently vacated by local design destination Hard Goods Co.
Need stocking stuffers? Look no further than paper goods from Terrapin Stationers. A set of 15 calling cards are $8.50, with double-take-worthy phrases like "Don't say no just think about it," and "You're the fucking man." Not the average business card.
For the less abrasive, there's menswear from D by D, like the street wear-inspired chic quilted rider jacket for $279. The boutique also sells styles from Brian Lichtenberg, an LA-based designer making a subtle but far-reaching splash on the celebrity circuit. An ironic "Féline Meow" sweatshirt (a play on designer Céline) will run you $105, while black-and-white "Homies" tote is a cool $40.
The store is doing flash sales through Christmas Eve -- and any of its fashion-forward items are fair game. Keep an eye on the company's social media sites (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) for daily steals like 20 percent off outerwear.
