Christmas is officially 2 days away, and that also means there are just 2 shopping days left!

Whether you're a last-minute shopper looking to begin or just have a few items left to cross off your holiday shopping list, you're sure to find some unique gifts at the local Cochrane shop - Great Things in Store.

Bonnie Bend is the shop owner at Great Things in Store and she says the family puzzles have been a popular gift this year!

"The popular family puzzles are 350 pieces but have different size pieces on each side. On one side of the puzzle, you have larger pieces and on the other side they're much smaller; so different members of the family can do the puzzle together and each is challenged."

Bend says that they've had people travelling to their store from all over for hot-ticket items for pre-teens and teens. She says "Hydro flask is the world's best selling reusable bottle and we've had people travel to our store from Airdrie, Okotoks and Calgary to purchase them here since we have such a great selection."

Bend says another high demand item for pre-teens and teens this year is lava lamps, and that the Melissa and Doug educational toys are always a hit for toddlers and preschoolers.

Great Things in Store is located at 4, 80 Railway Street East in Cochrane and they're open until 6:00 this evening and if you're looking to head out shopping on Christmas Eve - they'll be open from 9 am to 5 pm tomorrow.
