last minute ingredients you always forget

Spending my first Christmas in UK and from what I understand there will be no grocery shops open on Christmas or Boxing day. A far cry from NYC when Christmas day trips to the Key Food for forgotten ingredients were a part of the annual celebration. So I'm wracking my brain to try to remember all those weird things you always forget, and any last minute additions for my menu, which will be roast duck (Alton Brown recipe), roast vegetables in duck fat, brussel sprouts, chestnuts, green and fruit salads, and some kind of pudding (afraid I haven't figured that one out yet). Plus, breakfasts and snacks for both Xmas and Boxing day...

So, what are the ingredients you guys always forget and have to run out at the last minute for?

Thanks.
