Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- Today was crunch time for people still trying to find that perfect Christmas present. Many shoppers in the Valley spent the day at West Acres, trying to finish their Christmas lists.

Shoppers say it's not about the deals or the prices, but the experience that brings them out for some last minute shopping.

Andrea Paradis/Fargo: "You know, I don't even look for deals at all, I just go because I realize Christmas is a day away and just get it done."

Shoppers like Andrea are all out looking for something special..for her, an ornament for her daughter's first Christmas.

For others, maybe some jewelry or a pair of shoes...

And although their bags are all packed full of different items, one thing they share is the difficult deadline

With just hours to go until St. Nick makes his way down the chimney.

Paradis: "Usually I go a week before because I procrastinate. I'm very poor at planning it in advance."

Jeff Sorenson/Valley City: "I wait til the last minute because I'm lazy."

And even though there may only be a few minutes to spare, these shoppers will rest assured knowing their gifts make it under the tree in time for Christmas morning.

Retailers are expecting an increase in sales this Christmas season.
