Trees, decorations, toys, curtains, ham and more, Bajans are hitting the stores buying for the Yuletide.

With it still being early in December, the last-minute rush has not yet begun, but some early birds were spotted securing their gifts.

Some say Christmas is for children, and at Deanna Dash’s Toy Shop in Sky Mall, parents were indeed scouring the shelves for the perfect gifts for their young ones.

Devoted dad Shamar Trotman was shopping not only for his 18-month-old son, but for all the little ones he cared about.

“I have a god-daughter, brothers and sisters, so I can’t wait until the last minute. Once they are happy then I happy too. All I need is life,” he said while selecting a stuffed animal.
