Holiday Gifting with Shoppers Drug Mart

 



Our holiday to-do lists are long - shopping, party planning, baking, cooking and preparing the house for guests. While some things must be done last-minute out of necessity, we can avoid a holiday meltdown by taking shopping off the list as early as possible.

The added bonus of shopping early is that you can take advantage of special holiday promotions and exclusive holiday gifts. With convenience (and Shoppers Optimum Points!) in mind, I like to pick up gifts while buying my household necessities at Shoppers Drug Mart. Shoppers Drug Mart has gifts for everyone on your list and, with more than 1,100 stores in Canada, you're sure to have a location nearby. In fact, I can easily walk to Shoppers Drug Mart from my house. And if I do drive (all the better to load up on packages), Shoppers has lots of free parking. So much better than battling the dreaded mall parking lot!



 



The first person I always think of when browsing for gifts at Shoppers Drug Mart is my sister. All of the colourful, girly cosmetics gift sets remind me of my lively, fun sister. This set of OH MY GOSH nail lacquers in five festive colours is perfect for her. And GOSH nail lacquer is manufactured without the use of toluene and formaldehyde so it's safe for all members of the family. My daughter would love these too!


 


Men can be challenging to shop for, but we all know that they are in love with technology. These Sony Wireless Headphones with charging station would put a smile on my husband's face this holiday season. They're great for listening to music or watching TV without disturbing other family members.
 
 

And Shoppers has lots for the kiddies too, like this festive set of Play-Doh in a candy cane-shaped package. Of course, they have candy too - lots and lots of stocking stuffers to please the kids...and me!

From cosmetics to food to seasonal aisles, the stores are easy to navigate so you can get your shopping done quickly. Unless you like to browse and read labels for hours like me. If you like to shop in peace and quiet, remember that your Shoppers Drug Mart store is open late. Take advantage of exciting in-store sales and promotions while shopping in quieter, off-peak hours.

Shoppers Optimum Rewards Program = Free Products!


If you aren't already a member of the Shoppers Optimum Rewards Program, I urge you to sign up. I have received hundreds of dollars worth of free products using the points I earned by shopping on regular days as well as during "20x the points" events. Almost every purchase earns you points. And there are special offers and events for members too.

  3. I've got December 2nd marked down on the calendar, lol. Can't wait for the SDM contest, yay! :) And I definitely have to pick up the Oh My GOSH polish... just not sure whether I'll gift it to my sis (like I'll probably intend to do) or keep it for myself! #NailPolishAddict ;)

    1. So funny you say that, because I always have the same dilemma. Anything I see that would be good for my sister I also pretty much want to keep for myself. I guess we just have to buy two of everything! ;)

  4. LOL - I looked at those play dough stocking stuffers and thought PERFECT too! My FIL got a pair of headphones last Christmas and really likes them (so does my MIL). And those nail colours are gorgeous. I don't do my nails very often but for those colours, maybe I could get into the habit! :)

    1. Thanks Bonnie. Yes, the headphones are handy for all ages! I don't do my nails often either but I get tempted when I see pretty colours like these. :)

  5. My kids will never tire of Playdoh, such a great gift for any kid on the list. I could spend an hour at Shopper's and have many fond memories there! Great gift ideas!

    1. My kids are the same! They ignored their Play Doh for a really long time, but recently my daughter is into it again! I have spent an hour reading facial cleanser labels at Shoppers. ;)
