Spread Holiday Cheer

The holiday season brings festive lights, Christmas carols, eggnog, and some much-needed family time for everyone. Make this holiday season one to remember with your family and friends by creating an advent calendar to count down the days leading to Christmas.

Make your own advent calendar at home with the help of Buck or Two Plus where you can purchase small boxes or baggies for each day. Decorate your box with tinsel, ribbon, and tiny snowflakes from Dollarama, and tie your baggies with pieces of red or green ribbon from Buck or Two Plus. Not sure where to place your calendar? Try hanging your baggies with twine around your fireplace. Or stack your boxes near the Christmas tree and open one for a magical surprise every night.

Fill your calendar with goodies found exclusively at Central City. You can find delicious candies and chocolates from T&T Supermarket and Shoppers Drug Mart or pocketbooks from Black Bond Books. For all your tech needs, visit Best Buy or Walmart for the latest headphones or the must-have phone accessories. Small gifts like necklaces, bracelets, watches or even a scarf make for big surprises. Visit Ardene, Suzy Shier, Sirens, Urban Planet, and Bluenotes for accessories that are sure to delight everyone. You can also add the newest makeup products or perfumes from Shoppers Drug Mart or Winners. Games are a great way to reconnect with your family! Put a pack of cards or pocket games from Craving for a Game in your holiday advent calendar. You can always treat the hard-to-buy-for family members with gift cards from Central City valid at most of the centre’s 140 stores and restaurants or treat them with a special treat from Starbucks, Tim Hortons, or Blenz Coffee.

The best Christmas gift is time well spent with your friends and family. From our Central City family to yours we wish you a holiday season full of joy and happiness.
