WYANDOTTE, Mich. (WXYZ) — It's down to the wire for gift shopping with Christmas now just two days away.

Those looking for last minute ideas have come to the right place. Here's a list of items you can grab up until Christmas Eve.

7 Action News reporter Darren Cunningham visited a couple of shops, the first one in Wyandotte, one of many looking to help customers in search of last-minute gifts.

The mad dash for last-minute gifts is on! As Glow Fish Studios in Wyandotte can attest, owner Vanessa Morse says you still have plenty of options.

"Family that has tons of kids, you can always do a game," Morse says. "So it’s for the family. You don’t have to get each individual person a gift. Fake mustaches are always a good hit. Walkie-talkies. We have ukuleles, lava lamps, fun books up top. Pocket knives, sticker books and tattoo books. Tons of really good coloring books. For the crafty people, in our craft section knitting, crocheting, weaving, dying. Hakki sacks are fun. And then we also have tea. Tons of jewelry. The collegiate puzzles just came in and we have a ton of puzzles in the back as well.”

Over at City Bird in Detroit, owner Andy Linn says a decent number of his customers are ordering online then picking up cool products curbside.

“The first one I was gonna talk about was this new mug, and we have just a limited quantity any available. It’s nice to pair it with something so we have a locally made hot cocoa from Pete's chocolate," said Linn. "We have his neighborhood glasses. We have about 60 Detroit neighborhoods available. If the recipient, say grew up in the Cass Corridor, but now lives in Old Redford, you can get a set of glasses that fit with their story and we also have these great candles.

"This is one of our most popular scents and it’s called Roland Pine, and then we have a local coffee roast from James Oliver and they roast out of Eastern Market and this particular roast actually benefits the Detroit Public School Foundation and another great thing is some jewelry. Rebel Nell. They work with formerly homeless women to help get them off the street and give them life and job skills. They collect fallen graffiti from around the city. Every single piece is unlike the others.”

Both stores are open on Christmas Eve.
