    Shoppers were on a serious mission to cross off their Christmas lists at Irving Mall on Christmas Eve.

    Mall spokeswoman Elizabeth Barth said gift cards were the hottest commodity on Christmas Eve. Half of gift card sales for the entire year are bought during the month of December, she said.

    Irving Mall offers more than 250 different kinds of gift cards, Barth said.

    Barth also said that sales in general are looking up compared to last year.

    "A lot of our retailers are telling us that that was the best Black Friday that they have had in recent years," she said.
