December 26 (or, in some parts, Boxing Day) is one of the worst days to leave the house, especially if the reason for leaving the house is shopping. People become vicious, elbowing single mothers for toasters or an eighth television (because who doesn’t need an eighth television?). But we’ve made some calls and have taken stock of some of the worthwhile deals in the city for men, women and children (and, of course, shops that cater to him and her, the whole family and homeowners) that will take us away from Best Buy, Future Shop or Walmart. Check out 25 safe bets for Boxing Day sales this year after the jump.
