Only 18 shopping days remain between you and Christmas, and that means ticking off names of friends and family for whom you plan to find that special holiday gift. But fear not. Las Vegas is a shopping mecca, a fashionista’s dream for finding the best without the hassle of bundling up against the cold and with all the convenience of finding your favorite boutique clustered in some of the best shopping districts in the world. Here’s a look at the top five shopping destinations in Las Vegas. We made knocking out your holiday gift list a snap.

1 Crystals at CityCenter

Our hearts skipped a beat when Crystals at CityCenter opened last December. Such wonderful new designers found a home at this decadent candy store of a shopping center. Lanvin with its stunning window displays, Tom Ford and his impeccable eye for menswear and the fifth largest Louis Vuitton store in the world all front the mall along Las Vegas Boulevard. Tucked within find the upscale bookseller Assouline, lingerie store Kiki de Montarnasse, Carolina Herrera, Miu Miu, Paul Smith and Marni. Opening soon, Donna Karan, Emilio Pucci and two newcomers to Las Vegas: Stella McCartney and Philipp Plein.

2 The Shoppes at the Palazzo

How can you not love a shopping destination anchored by Barneys New York and its humorous take on fashion? After you explore the three floors of posh shopping there, head out to the 60-plus boutiques tucked away inside the Shoppes at the Palazzo. Look for Diane von Furstenberg, Chloé, Christian Louboutin, Catherine Malandrino, Jimmy Choo, Any Hindmarch, Poleci and a gorgeous Ralph Lauren store among others. And it’s attached to the Grand Canal Shoppes at the Venetian, so you can wander your way through the canals for more shopping pleasures.

3 Forum Shops at Caesars

Oh, the decadence that is the Forum Shops at Caesars and its 138 boutiques. Marc Jacobs calls this center home, along with Emilio Pucci, Giuseppe Zanotti, Agent Provacateur, Valentino, Intermix, Scoop NYC and soon, the largest H&M in the world. Don a pair of Jimmy Choo shoes, add some handbags from Reed Krakoff or Judith Leiber and bedeck yourself in some Harry Winston, De Beers, David Yurman, Tiffany & Co. or Chopard jewels and you have a complete shopping experience. We like to park at valet at Joe’s Stone Crab for the easiest access.

4 Fashion Show mall

No shopping trip would be complete without a trip to Fashion Show mall. Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Macy’s, Dillard’s, Nordstrom and Bloomindales Home anchor the mall along with a Forever 21 that takes up two floors and more than 250 boutiques. Kate Spade, Bettie Page, Betsey Johnson, Zara and Paul Frank are just some of the must-sees here. Be sure to head to the runway between Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue for fashion shows on Fridays through Sundays, including holiday shows that make it snow in Las Vegas. If you valet park your car, you can pick it up from any of the valet stands no matter where you left it.

5 Via Bellagio

Like a finely curated closet, Via Bellagio offers up the best in high fashion. Look for Giorgio Armani, Chanel, Dior, Gucci, Fendi, Prada, Bottega Veneta, Yves Saint Laurent, Fred Leighton and Tiffany & Co. Valet park off Flamingo Road for the most convenient access to shopping, and be sure to save time for the Conservatory & Botanical Gardens and its spectacular holiday decor, or stick around for a light lunch at Todd English’s Olives so you can watch the Fountains at Bellagio.
