Being the holiday season, celebrities have been out and about purchasing last minute gifts like the rest of us. Here’s a rundown of who all was spotted at the shops over the last couple of days.

Barbra Streisand and her husband James Brolin kicked things off on Friday with a shopping trip to Neiman Marcus in Los Angeles. Paris Hilton hit up her favorite store Kitson. She probably bought something for herself. While Vanessa Hudgens did a little furniture shopping. I’m guessing she’s probably buying new cushions for boyfriend Zac Efron’s couch, to replace the ones that died in the tragic juice box accident.

On Saturday, Nick Cannon stopped by Louis Vuitton to do some shopping for wife Mariah Carey. Chuck star Yvonne Strahovski and her boyfriend were spotted at The Grove in Los Angeles. Ashley Tisdale and her man Scott Speer went shopping for clothing for the special holiday party at Chico’s in Toluca Lake, CA. While Robert Downey Jr. and his wife shopped at Cross Creek in Malibu. Anna Faris had her husband Chris Pratt to keep her in stitches while she shopped.

Yesterday, The Grove was abuzz with celebrities. Christiana Applegate did a little shopping at American Girl Place and The Gap. While Kate Beckinsale and her family were spotted there as well.
