As the band Europe sang so eloquently, "It's the final countdown." Christmas is just a blink away and you can blame work or holiday travel all you want, but you're still struggling to get the right gift for those last few people on your list — or maybe you forgot. Whatever it is, it's crunch time.

You're not the only one. About 18% of U.S. consumers admitted that they would go Christmas shopping —  and gift-returning — on the very day if they had the choice, according to a poll by LoyaltyOne

Basically everything is open on Christmas Eve, but there's just a few choice retailers for those real procrastinators open on Christmas day. Below is a list of the stores open on Christmas, compiled by GOBankingRates. It may not be the best selection, but maybe you'll have a better game plan for next year.
