Every year around this time, I start putting together my holiday gift list. I always have great intentions of getting my shopping done, gifts wrapped, and everything ready ahead of time and under budget. Ha! It’s pretty much inevitable that I’ll find myself doing at least some of my shopping at the last minute.
Shoppers Drug Mart is one of my favourite places to do that shopping because of their selection and the convenience. I earn Shoppers Optimum Points on almost every purchase, and most stores are open late. There’s a store less than ten minutes away from my house, and that one is open 24 hours a day! So if I want to do some late night or last minute shopping, I’m set.
We often think of Shoppers Drug Mart as a destination for cosmetics and fragrances, but did you know that you can find great gift ideas for cool kids and trendy tots too? I browsed through their gift guide and found these terrific toys for all the kids in my family – GIFTS MADE EASY!
LeapFrog’s My Pal Scout is perfect for two-year-old Kay. Scout features 15+ learning activities, 40+ songs, and teaches first words, counting, colours, and feelings. The coolest thing is I can connect this soft, plush toy to my computer and personalize the activities with Kay’s name and favourite songs, colours, foods, and more!
B. Wheeee-ls! are the perfect present for my one-year-old nephew. He loves cars, and these soft vehicles are just the right size for little hands to hold. Each set of Wheeee-ls! comes with a 100% recycled box garage and four soft, brightly-coloured vehicles. I think he’ll love all the sounds that each vehicle makes too – the car rings, the truck chimes, the racer rattles, and the taxi squeaks! Fun!
Shoppers Drug Mart also has gifts for the Modern Man – everything from fragrance to grooming essentials (like the Gillette ProGlide Holiday Pack) to tech toys like the Jawbone UP24 wristband. Or if you’re The Entertainer in your group, stop in to pick up some chocolates and premium mixed nuts perfect for family gatherings and holiday parties!
