It's the most wonderful time of the year, even if that year is 2020. While most of us are scaling back our holiday celebrations this year and focusing on our nearest and dearest, there are still items on our checklists that may be overlooked. This year, however, it's best to be prepared beforehand because many grocery stores are closing up shop on December 25 this year. And many others close early on Christmas Eve. The usual drugstore options remain open for a bottle of antacids, box of candy canes or cheap bottle of wine. However, Christmas falls on the same day every year and wise men and women sit back with a cup of hot chocolate in front of the fireplace knowing that they are all set for the holidays.

But for the last minute shoppers, here are some options:
