How late is too late to buy a Christmas gift? If you ask the likes of Target, Best Buy, Wal-Mart or any of the retail heavy hitters, the answer is an emphatic one.
Well, that might not be technically true since Christmas falls on December 25 and stores, at least for now in 2013, are closed that day. But that doesn't mean those aforementioned stores aren't clamoring for business until the final bell, as late as December 24, also known as Christmas Eve.
Retailers hardly consider "Black Friday" or "Cyber Monday" as their last chance to garner as much revenue as possible when it comes to holiday shopping. These stores pay close attention to not only discounting all the latest and greatest gifts and gadgets but understanding that not all shoppers are created equal.
For some, waiting to buy gifts at the very last minute isn't by choice. Rather, the hustle and bustle of a daily routine even can impede something as pertinent at holiday shopping. The other half makes it a point to continually remind themselves that the next greatest deal hasn't yet hit the stores, and waiting until the very end is part of a masterful plan to save the most.
