The presents will be obviously coming down the chimney in Santa's sack.
But it looks like Saint Nick has recruited a willing helper to get them all wrapped up in time for Christmas.
Jessica Alba headed to a discount supermarket to stock up on brightly coloured paper, bows and ribbons ahead of the festive season.
It certainly looked like she had a lot of gifts to wrap - the mother-of-two filled her trolley to the brim.
Jessica visited the Target store in Los Angeles on Thursday and was pulling toys off the racks by the armfuls.
In the Barbie aisle, Jessica spent some time considering all the brightly coloured possibilities before settling on a fine pair of dolls.
She undoubtedly carted a few outfits with which to cloth the dolls as most mothers know little girls love to outfit their plastic pals in the latest fashions.
Jessica knows all about fashion, looking chic in grey jeans with a star pattern, flaring black cardigan and short-cropped black leather jacket as well as a warming black scarf.
A lime-green shoulder bag was a festive and fashionable accessory.
She must have spent a fortune to give her adorable tots, Honor, four, and one-year-old Haven, a beautiful Christmas.
But Jessica, who is filming Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, didn't bat an eyelash at the total.
Jessica was seen leaving the retail chain store with her loaded trolley and a much-needed coffee.A store employee graciously assisted the star in loading all her packages inside her silver SUV.
