Your Westshore Gift Guide


The key to happy holiday fun? Start early and stay organized. If you’re feeling overwhelmed and unsure where to start, don’t worry. We’ve rounded up a few great gift suggestions for everyone on your list this season.

For the one who loves the outdoors
Whether it’s hiking, kayaking, camping, or just sitting outside in the grass, we all have an outdoor aficionado on our holiday list. Keep them safe and warm with practical and tactical gifts like a travel first aid kit, thick wool socks, or a multitool that you never know when you might need. Or consider a guide to local trails and hidden camping spots that let’s your friends or family explore their own backyard in depth.  Visit Atmosphere / Sport Chek for the one on your list who loves the outdoors.

For the one who loves to read
A short story collection. A magazine subscription. An elegant coffee table book. The newest page-turning thriller. There’s a story out there for everyone, and a good book makes for a great gift. Consider introducing someone to one of your favourite authors by gifting them your favourite novel or revisit a cherished and timeless classic.  Coles is your one-stop-shop or the reader on your list.

For the one who loves to play
It’s hard to beat the fun and joy that comes from toys. Whether you’re shopping for tiny tots, clever kiddos, or adults who are young at heart, toys, puzzles, board games and collectables make great gifts that are sure to bring a smile to anyone’s face. Not to mention, they’re a great way to carve out some quality time to play together! Be sure to double check if your gift requires batteries and consider adding them as stocking stuffer or gift topper to avoid delays in play.  Mastermind Toys has all your need for the one who loves to play.

For the one who has everything
We all have that one person on our list who seems impossible to shop for. Skip the hassle and the headache and consider getting a gift card from any of the retailers here at Westshore Town Centre. In addition to saving you time running from store to store, or trying to neatly wrap a present, gift cards always fit and are always the right style.


Happy holidays and happy shopping!
