I’m going to point out something that may be frightening for some. We are less than 10 days away from Christmas! That means 9 shopping days left. Breathe, relax, and take a sip of your gingerbread latte because we are here to help. Below is my top shop list of stores right out your front door where you can find something great for everyone on your list.
Wish List: This is one of my new favourite shopping destinations. It is the best shop to pick up the perfect hostess gift or last minute stocking stuffers. Make-up, candles, adorable stationary and many more perfectly packaged gifts. I’ve already been in twice to complete my shopping list.
Bikram’s Yoga: A great gift for the fitness enthusiast in your life. Bikram Yoga Vancouver on West Broadway currently has a promotion on where you can give the gift of yoga and save $10 on a regular pass! $40 pre-paid gift card for $30. They also sell yoga apparel to get your new yogi started!
Duthie Books: I am a strong believer that a book does not have to be a “bad gift”. I was in Duthie books the other day and surrounding their cash register is an amazing selection of beautifully illustrated coffee table books. There was something for everyone with topics ranging from fashion and art to travel and movies.
Various Kits Restaurants: It has been a great year for new restaurants and pubs in Kits. A thougtful gift for the foodie in your life is to purchase a gift certificate at each of their favourite and some new restaurants to visit. Some suggestions: Re Fuel, The Local, Maenam and the Gramercy Grill.
Moule: If your disposable santa budget is a bit higher than others, this is a great option to knock off a few gifts in one stop. You are sure to find something special for the fashionista in your life as well browse through unique children’s products and one of a kind home decor items.
Hope your shopping elf at kitsilano.ca helped! Now get out there and start shopping!
