Hanukkah starts tonight: Tuesday, December 12, 2017. It may not be a present-centric holiday for most, but there are still lots of opportunities to surprise people. With that in mind, maybe you’re not ready (or maybe you will be meeting friends for a Hanukkah bash this weekend). If you’re stuck, we can help.

Here’s a list of places to snag Hanukkah presents fast:


DSW is a great option when you’re running out of time because you can pick up in-store and be on your way. Unlike buying and hoping that your item arrives, you can buy now and pick up as soon as you’re near a local store. (Keep in mind that this would apply to shoes and accessories available in-store.) With the variety available at DSW, however, you shouldn’t have an issue.

  • Hunt down clearance items for the biggest bargain.
  • Sign up for the newsletter to get special deals in your inbox… year-round!

Pro tip: Don’t forget about fun stuff like jeggings, scarves, leggings, and leg warmers, which are all at DSW, too. The store tends to stock some of the most on-trend pieces available.


This is a perfect option for shoppers who have to pick up a *few* items for Hanukkah presents… maybe *all*. Anyway, who’s counting? Don’t get stressed about finding things for the whole family -- instead, make the most of a department store that prides itself on its selection, and choose the “pick up in store” option after shopping online.

  • Get 30% off your order -- limited time only!
  • Score 15% off beauty items at Macy’s

Pro tip: Don’t forget about cozy home-decor items for picky family members. Sometimes, clothes just simply don’t work.

JC Penney

We have a love affair with JCP over here, thanks to the sheer number of sales and savings this shop offers year-round. This time of year, however, is the most popular deal time, one that points to doubled savings, huge percentage-off discounts, and unexpected, on-sale finds. And don’t forget about the in-store pickup option, which is a savior when you are in a rush.

  • Get 30% off of your order when you spend $100.
  • Score 25% off all purchases.

Pro tip: The clearance section never disappoints.


If there’s a Sears near you, rejoice: you will be able to scoop up bargains right now, and pick them up without ever leaving the car. From novelty plates to notebooks to cold-weather gear, Sears has a lot… and their Shop Your Way points system can help you save a bundle on already-affordable items.

  • Get $5 off $50
  • Spend $300 and get $35 off

Pro tip: Download the app to pick up from your car.


Don’t scoff… from bestselling novels and classic jeans to activewear and classic kitchen mixers, Walmart is a great place for surprise gifts. Your order will be ready in four hours (not bad!), and you’re surely scoring some of the lowest prices out there.

  • Look for 40%-off savings
  • Consider $10 off $50 for your first Fresh Groceries purchase, too!

Pro tip: Consider shopping for your own home supplies and groceries when you’re grabbing last-minute gifts… make it a one-stop-shop!
