we don't get up crazy early or anything, but we do go to breakfast and hit up Target later in the AM / early PM. I swear my Target is a hidden gem and it's never crowded. it's always fun to be out and about (except at the malls... that scares me),
I always save the malls until later. I'll be with my MIL and SIL this year, when I'm with them, we usually do Target, Kohls and maybe walmart depending on what they have. Then we usually take a breakfast/brunch break and hit up the mall if we have energy left. When I go with my mom (every other year, we rotate thanksgivings with our families), we go to Tanger outlets (which is a ghost town if you go around 5am, since they open the night before, it's great!) then Target and Kohls.
