Admit it: You're still scrambling to buy presents for those random people who sprang gifts on you out of the blue. Fortunately, giving Christmas presents is sort of like sending Christmas cards — there's totally a grace period until January. But chances are you're also buying things for yourself, because after all this gift-giving you need a reward. Plus, the sales! Who can resist? There's no need to be embarrassed about all the shopping you've done this week, because you're in very good company. Even celebrities are out buying things — all by themselves, and sometimes even carrying their own bags and opening their own wallets. So if you're steeling yourself for the scary world of post-Christmas retail, allow these photos of Jeremy Piven, Gwen Stefani, Angelina Jolie, and more to give you some inspiration.
Gwen's trying to hide from the paparazzi by feigning interest in tacky holiday trinkets, but Kingston's leopard-print leggings totally gave them away.
Nothing makes your complexion glow like hefting bagfuls of flatware.
Contrary to how it may seem, Joe is not headed out to haul timber, or even to chop down his Christmas tree. He does, however, look like he'd fit right in at the Roots store.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
"Brad, I told you this already! You're only allowed to pick one toy. And don't start eating your jelly beans until we get back into the car."
You've got to applaud her efforts to coordinate her bag with her shoes. The woman tries.
You'd think we'd make fun of her bewildered expression, but admit it: Shopping can be a baffling experience this time of year.
NOT buying weight-loss products ...
... and not buying gumballs ...
... and not buying books.
We're not quite sure what looks weirder here: the wolf-print tee, the tapered boyfriend jeans, or the Mary Janes. Oh, wait, definitely the Mary Janes.
Jennifer's wondering why Ben is late for their gift dropoff ...
... but the poor guy never stood a chance against a coordinated sneak attack from both Batman and Spiderman.
Someone got a little overzealous with the Gaga light-up yo-yos.
Jane looks very put-together, but the lady in the woolly bucket hat behind her totally wins.
It's rare to see Katy in something as normal as a pink scarf. It's rarer still that it's the most colorful item she's wearing.
Planet Blue's website says it's the kind of store "where surf and stars blend in casual harmony." This probably isn't what they envisioned.
Isn't it ironic when you've got a whole cartful of groceries but no car?
You've got to hand it to Sofia: The woman puts her money where her mouth is.
We can safely assume that whatever Selma bought wasn't purchased at the cheap motel she appears to be walking away from.
New York City's very first REI store opened just a few weeks ago! Clearly Sandra isn't as excited about the prospect of buying freeze-dried food and LED headlamps in Soho as some of our loved ones are.
Jessica isn't above carrying her own clothing purchases, but her doggie bag? Forget it.
That makes one of us who's working out and eating right this week.
We finally understand what Karl Lagerfeld meant when he said, "Think pink, don't wear it."
