Last Minute Picks from Hillcrest #HelloHillcrest #sponsored

You've got a week. One week left to get those pesky, last minute gifts. Somehow, I still have a few to buy. Don't ask me how. I only had a few to start with! And I've been writing for months about the perfect gifts, and yet, here I am. I may have to go to the mall. 

Yes, I said the MALL. And I'm not petrified, mainly. 'Cause suburban malls are where it's at, people. Community Malls are smaller, closer, less busy and most of the time, offer just as many signature stores as the flagship malls. I've been shopping at Hillcrest in Richmond Hill for decades. Long before other community malls even existed, we would have Friday night shopping nights with my mom at Hillcrest. Then, it was a tiny mall with a few stores we enjoyed. Well, in the last few years, Hillcrest has gone through a huge transformation, and honestly, if you haven't been, you wouldn't recognize it. 

And with stores like Sporting Life, H&M, Roots, a new Hudson's Bay, Okaïdi, and even a Starbucks!, you will find hundreds of great last-minute gift ideas. And if you go first thing in the morning, you're likely to beat a rush!

Hillcrest's Marketing Director, Lisa Resnic, offered her favourite holiday gift ideas for loved ones...and some that are perfect for yourself!

Fenty Beauty at Sephora: Fenty Beauty's Skinsticks are for that girl-on-the-go (aka me). They're portable, and a great way to take your look from day tonight with matte to shimmer convertibility. 


Bake Code: According to Lisa, Bake Code is a best kept secret at Hillcrest, and apparently so! I've never heard of it! Pick up some handcrafted breads, cakes and pastries before you head to a party. Pictured: Taro Bread. 

Okaïdi: Okaïdi is new to Hillcrest, but has a great reputation for modern, creative clothing for littles. Clothes are designed to mix and match, so kids can help create their perfect look. 

H&M: The H&M at Hillcrest is HUGE. So you know you're going to find an abundant selection of cozy, stylish and snazzy gifts and accessories. 



Sunglass Hut: Don't forget about sunglasses when it comes to winter accessories. Lisa's pick: Michael Kors Amber Lens shades to elevate your outfit.  LOVE.

Hillcrest's Holiday Hours are Monday through Saturday: 9:30 a.m. - 9:30 p.m. and on Sunday (Christmas Eve) 10 a.m. - 7 p.m. For more info on stores and amenities, visit hillcrestmall.ca.
