Shopping like crazy for all those last minute gifts. If you are thinking about picking up a last minute gift to take with you for that dinner invitation you received, plan on waiting in line. According to one friend, she has tallied up over an hour’s worth of waiting in lines. Printemps, Monoprix, Sephora are all busy. Hey, at least it’s better than sleeping in an airport which is what you would have been doing in Heathrow or Denver.
