- Femail has found the best gifts in the supermarkets that you can get today
There’s nothing like the panic of realising that you’ve forgotten to buy a Christmas present for someone and fretting about whether there’s still time to get to the shops.
But if you’re heading to the supermarket for last-minute food shopping today, you could manage to pick up any missing gifts without the hassle of hitting the high street.
Nobody wants to hand over a gift that looks like an afterthought, but there’s plenty of options available from posh food and booze, to children’s toys and beauty sets.
And supermarket fashion has come a long way in recent years – and if you need proof, bear in mind that the hottest dress of party season this year was a £16 fuchsia off-the-shoulder frock from Asda that sold out and even has its own Instagram.
It comes in silver too and if you’re lucky you might even find the odd straggler still on the rails.
Most supermarkets are open on Christmas Eve until either 6pm or 7pm, with certain branches even open until 8pm, so there is still time to buy those last-minute gifts.
