There's still some time to shop. Here are the Christmas trading hours in your state.

If the base of your Christmas tree is looking a tad bare, don’t fret.

If you’re anything like me, you’ve managed to purchase just one part of one person’s present. Partly because you’re a pro at procrastinating and partly because you’d rather use your lunch break to, you know, eat lunch.

Thankfully the good folks that run the shopping centres are throwin’ us a festive bone and staying open longer for the next little while, so we can actually have something to wrap on Christmas Eve.

Here are the opening hours for the major malls in your state this Christmas/New Year:
