Let’s be real: from overbooked social calendars to business trips to dysfunctional family gatherings to baking, the holidays can be just as stressful as they are merry and bright. And one thing that makes them even more stressful: running all over town to get the perfect gift for everyone on your list.

Make this the year that you cross a minimum of 2 – 3 names off your list at each of these convenient Frisco shopping destinations, a.k.a. Frisco’s One-Stop Holiday Shopping Spots:
