Last minute shoppers rushed around Colony Square Mall on Christmas Eve hoping to find the perfect gifts.
The Counter Manager for Estee Lauder, Nicki Norton says that a lot of men tend to come her counter last minute to purchase all kinds of goods for their wives, mother’s and girlfriends. She says she always suggests they pick up a few signature items.
"What I would recommend for somebody would be like a skin care item, a fragrance, anything like that we can help them with. We can help the husband or even the girls that need something for their moms real quick," said Norton.
On the other side of the mall, one local mom says she was there to help her son pick out a special gift for his significant other.
"I’m just here accompanying my son. I do my shopping early . I’m done, but he’s the Christmas Eve shopper every year so I am out with him," said Lisa Leckron.
Leckron says waiting to the day before Christmas is something he has always done and it has become a family tradition. Other shoppers says they are ready to finish buying gifts and just want to get home to spend the holidays with the people they love most.
