Shopping By Stopwatch

You don’t have time to wander the streets. But don’t panic: There’s a well-stocked drugstore just around the corner. Here, $213 worth of eleventh-hour presents found last week at a Duane Reade, a Walgreens, and a CVS.


The rest of the year, impulse shopping isn’t necessarily a good idea. But when the days start hurtling by in December, it’s time to abandon forethought. Spot a miniature rocking horse ($30 at CVS, 215 Park Ave. S., nr. 18th St.; 646-602-8237) that actually neighs and clops when you squeeze its ears? Buy it! And the same goes for the other cheap-and-clever drugstore gifts on the pages ahead.
