Last minute gifts from 3 unexpected places

Don’t feel like battling shopping centers and strip malls? Here are a few places to shop locally where the lines move fast and the selections are plentiful.

Walgreens: Who knew that the store for medicine, vitamins and beauty items is a one-stop shopping place for everything from electronics (Wii consoles, games and accessories; cameras, camcorders and digital picture frames) to toys, crafts and board games.  And gift cards; they have a huge selection.

Barnes & Noble: At one time it was just books and coffee. Now? Board games, fancy bookends, scented pencils rolled from newsprint, make-up bags designed by artists in third world nations. … They’ve got a lot of oddball gifts that can’t be found anywhere else.

Bed, Bath & Beyond: Used to be THE go-to place for bedding, kitchen gadgets and plush towels. Now? There’s something for everyone, like an animated marine life lamp, or the as-seen-on-TV Fushigi magic gravity ball. They have funky clocks, fancy candles and silly wall art and throw rugs. You can probably do all your shopping in this store alone.
