Santa Claus is Coming To Town
Tomorrow in fact. That’s right folks. Santa Claus will be pulling his sleigh into town tomorrow evening. Saturday Christmas Eves are always weird to me because it still feels like you have plenty of time to shop. But uh, it’s really tomorrow. Anyway, the good news is I have one last little guide below to some great last minute gifts you can easily pick up (if you’re in a major Canadian city).
And for your convenience, here’s links to all those lovely items and where they’re available. Remember! Even if you can’t track down an exact item, hopefully these gift ideas (and stores) will inspire you to find something else that’s equally special. They might not be in the same order as the images above – but you’ll find your way 🙂
Kate Spade New York Leather Bow Belt – $88 @ Hudson’s Bay: The Bay stocks over a thousand Kate Spade items…so even if you can’t find this cute versatile belt, there’s sure to be other gifting inspo abound (and that’s just one of hundreds of brands stocked!)
