With the holiday season at its peak, Walgreens is offering deals including gifts under $20 and fast shopping services including same-day delivery, and pick up on Christmas eve and day.

The run of family gatherings, holiday parties, office in-person or virtual gift exchanges and teacher’s presents can put pressure on anyone, even those who started shopping early, to complete their holiday purchasing, Walgreens stated. As such, the company is positioning itself as an easy, seamless resource for those who need to finish up pre-Christmas shopping.

Among the last-minute gifts under $20 Walgreens is promoting:

  • S’mores maker from Sharper Image
  • 3-pack of candles with the scents of the season from Yankee Candle
  • Monogrammed drinkware
  • Same-day TilePix photos
  • Same-day canvas photo prints
  • Exploding Kittens card game
  • Marching Band Mickey Set
  • Everyday or festive slipper socks from Totes

Walgreens also offers gift cards, its own and a variety of third-party versions, in-store.

In terms of operations, Walgreens has extended its hours for placing and receiving same-day delivery orders. At most locations, customers can place orders up to 7 p.m. local time for same-day delivery in as little as one hour, the company noted. Walgreens will deliver orders placed after 7 p.m. by noon the next day. On Christmas Day, Walgreens will accept same-day delivery orders until 4 p.m. local time at most locations to accommodate delivery within adjusted store operating hours. Order cutoff times may vary based upon store hours, Walgreens pointed out.

For same-day pickup, customers must place their order at least one hour before their designated Walgreens store closes. On Christmas day, pickup hours will vary by location based on store operating hours. On Christmas eve, Walgreens stores will operate during regular business hours, with pharmacy hours varying by location. All 24-hour locations will remain open 24 hours. On Christmas Day, most Walgreens stores will operate with adjusted operating hours from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. but 24-hour Walgreens locations and 24-hour pharmacies will remain open as usual.
