It's November, which means we can now officially start talking about and getting ready for... the holiday season! Aren't you excited? There are two times of the year I'm the happiest: summer, and Christmas. I am starting to plan my shopping lists—for myself, and for those I'm buying for this year. I always love shopping at Shoppers Drug Mart because they have a huge selection of gift ideas for my friends, family, neighbours, teachers, and anyone else on my shopping list. This year, shopping is even easier at Shoppers Drug Mart with the new gift finder which is available online.
With so many fragrances, gorgeous gifts, yummy treats and the latest toys and electronics, Shoppers Drug Mart has GIFTS MADE EASY for everyone—and it's one-stop shopping—total bonus!
I think I'm a smart shopper, especially for the holidays—I make my lists early, I know who I'm shopping for, I ask my kids to prepare their "must-have" lists and I even start shopping before Halloween. However... I also wait for the last minute for a lot of my purchases, because I love the hustle and bustle of holiday shopping a few days before Christmas, and because sometimes, I just run out of time. I love that I can pick up last minute holiday gifts for people on my list at Shoppers Drug Mart, including stocking stuffers.
This year, Shoppers Drug Mart has even created an online "destination" so you can filter hundreds of gift ideas by price, categories or even for the type of person you're shopping for, so your holiday shopping can be completely stress-free. Every Shoppers Drug Mart location also has some great in-store sales, promotions, and exclusive holiday gifts sets (ooh la la!) from November 12th to December 25th. (So even if you're a last minute holiday shopper, like myself, you have nothing to worry about.) Plus, most locations are open late!
Mark these dates down in your calendar, too; they are the dates of the Holiday Gift guide launches:
"Give Beauty, beautyBOUTIQUE by Shoppers Drug Mart"—Available now.
"Get Set for the Happiest Holidays!"—November 15th.
And keep an eye out of three additional gift guides/beauty books available in late November and December.
I've created my own "wish-list" from Shoppers Drug Mart... if Santa is listening!
1. Fragrance Sampler and Certificate Collector's Edition For Her: I could spend hours is Shoppers just trying different fragrances, and every year, I add a new "favourite" to my perfume collection. Last year it was Prada Candy and this year... well, I'm just not sure yet! I've always loved the smell of Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue, but there are others I love as well. This Fragrance Sampler set is perfect because it comes with a deluxe sample of ten of the best-selling women's fragrances so you can try them out at home and when you've selected your favourite one, use the gift certificate that comes with this kit to buy a full size bottle.
2. Quo by Orly 18 piece Mini Nail Polish Set: I love nail polish—to receive, or to give, any time of the year, but especially for the holidays. I love this set because it comes with so many great colours, and a big selection of pink shades, which are always my favourite. I also love the festive glitter polish, that'll be perfect for celebrating New Year's Eve, no matter what I'm wearing.
3. Eye Studio Mascara Sampler: This kit is perfect for every single friend I know because we're always on the look out for the perfect mascara. I go through favourites, but I love to try out new brands to see what else is out there and if there is something that's even better than the one I'm currently using. This kit comes with seven of the best-selling mascaras by top brands like Smashbox, Benefit, and more. I would love to gift this to my BFF!

Of course, Shoppers Drug Mart also happens to be my go-to store for all the yummy treats for the holidays... like my favourite chocolates, Turtles, Toffifee, and Toblerone—my favourite holiday chocolates! There are so many great sets just ready for giving away to The Entertainer, co-workers, the mail man, the FedEx delivery guy.. and even your hair dresser. I love how there is so much I can get from one store., inclduing Advil, because after all that gift wrapping, that's what you'll be needing.
This holiday season, I'll be shopping at Shoppers Drug Mart. It's #giftsmadeeasy, every day.
