Ah the look of bliss on my face! Saturday Shopping without the Saturday Shoppers, First Canadian Place and Exchange Tower deliver on their promise of a very calm and fun way of gift buying for the Holidays. I am so happy I took them up on their offer to shop their centre for the season. Check out the photos below to see some of the goodies my family can expect to see under our tree.
My favourite colour is red so I sort of just went for it this year.
A little bit for him a little bit for me! My husband wears a suit four days a week and recently bought two new ones. I wanted to up his accessory game as well and selected a few ties and pocket squares in red, thank goodness he likes to wear red too. If you stay in the same colour family you can mix and match patterns to build an interesting formal suit look. You don’t have to wear a red tie and red pocket square. If that scares the man in your life stick to a solid coloured pocket square preferably in white. Cufflinks are often over looked by many men. French cuffs exude confidence and the right cufflinks add that finished touch.
Rego is a men’s store in First Canadian Place and Exchange Tower. When shopping there don’t forget to stock up on collar inserts. Nobody likes a ragged collar on their crips white shirt.
I selected beautiful red shoes and a matching handbag from Peter Kaiser (my new favourite shoe store). Adding these pieces to a classic black dress in my wardrobe breathes new life into my favourite outfits.
When it came to the kids I played it safe and purchased electronics (or accessories for their electronics) across the board. Video games for the boys (and one for the biggest kid in the family) from The Source as well as a few fun things like a mini drone from Batteries+ and an alarm clock which they can turn off using an electronic target. My daughter just got her own phone so a case from Batteries+ is a must as well as speakers from The Source. My children love to take photos and a instamix mini seemed like the perfect gift for all of them.
The one gift the entire family could enjoy was this Griffin charging station from Batteries+ that can charge 4 phones or tablets at once. This keeps everything in one spot and you won’t be tripping over chords as everyone tries to charge their electronics around the house.
