Over the years, my Christmas shopping style has changed a bit. Before kids, I worked in retail. One of those retail jobs was at Shoppers Drug Mart. I had all my shopping done long before Christmas was on the minds of most. I would grab fragrances for the women in my life and plush bears for the kids in my life plus fill a stocking for my man with all the essentials. Since I became a mom I found shopping early was actually a problem, because the shopping never stopped. So today I take my time, make a list and bargain around for everyone on it. Plus I think long and hard about what the prefect gift for that person would be. Although there’s one stop I make each season that doesn’t change and it is a trip to my local Shoppers Drug Mart. It could be my history and love for the retailer but over the years the selection has expanded and they always have fun and unique brands at this time of the year.

Have you seen LeapFrog My Pal Scout? It was 3 years ago and my mother-in-law bought each of our four kids their very own LeapFrog My Pal Scout from Shoppers Drug Mart. She saved her Shoppers Optimum Points for Christmas (like I do) and gave each child a LeapFrog My Pal Scout. What I like about LeapFrog My Pal Scout is you can personalize it to the child. Scout will say their name, talks about their likes, sing songs with your kids and even play games with them. I would have to say LeapFrog My Pal Scout is one of my favourite toys. Scout still sits on each child’s bed and sings sweet lullabies at bedtime. Recently, our family grew and I would love to give a LeapFrog My Pal Scout to my Trendy Tot nephew. He would adore the personalization.
This past Halloween, both our older boys went out as super heroes. They are at the stage where, power, speed and strength are most important. Shoppers Drug Mart has Captain America Super Soldier Stealthfire Shield, which I am positive our boys would love to battle with this Christmas.
There is not a Formula 1 race that goes by that is not PVRed in our house. If you follow our blog, you know my boys want to be race car drivers when they grow up and we enjoy family outings at the track. Which is why the La Ferrari 458 Spider Racing Wheel is perfect for them. However I would put this on the list for all the boys in my house big and small.
I only touched on a needle head of GIFTS MADE EASY. Shoppers Drug Mart also has gifts for the Modern Man. Everything he needs from fragrance to grooming essentials, such as the Gillette ProGlide Holiday Pack. Plus the Entertainer on your nice list will love the selection of chocolates to make them smile.
Giving Back To You
- Be sure to drop into your local Shoppers Drug Mart for exciting in-store sales, promotions & exclusive holiday gifts sets from now until December 25.
- Plus my favourite part is you will earn Shoppers Optimum Points on every purchase. I save my Shoppers Optimum Points for Christmas each year, the savings are helpful. Redeeming free money at the biggest spending time of year is very rewarding. What will you buy with your free money?
- Beat the rush. Most stores are open late. Tuck those babes in bed, leave Daddy in charge and get some late night shopping done. This is exactly how I like to shop: At a late night stroll.
