12 Days of Presents with Dufferin Mall’s Advent Calendar

December 12-24, 2015

If you follow me on SnapChat (CanFashionista), you would have seen that I was in Toronto a few days ago, working on a special project with Dufferin Mall. I spent the entire afternoon hand selecting 12 unique and amazing presents for their advent calendar that went live today. I wanted to find something truly special for everyone on your holiday wish-list, whether that be a busy mom, a fashionista, a techie, foodie or sports fan, I have you covered. Over the next 12 days Dufferin Mall will reveal a daily gift from their advent calendar, handpicked by yours’ truly, and all of you have the chance to enter and win.

Make sure to pop into Dufferin Mall, daily, snap a picture of their advent calendar with my featured prize of the day, and share it on social media. By posting on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, with the hashtag #DMAdventCalendar, you’ll have a chance to win 1 of 12 $50 Dufferin Mall Gift Cards.

While you’re in the mall, make sure to fill out a ballot, in the centre court of Dufferin Mall, to win my featured present of the day. Can’t make it into the mall that day, no problem, simply complete the online form here for your chance to win.

On the first day of giving, it’s for all you foodies. The holidays can be a stressful time and we all need a little caffeine and sugar to get us through the day. There’s no denying that Starbucks has some of the best holiday drinks, so not only did I provide you with their oh so popular Christmas blend, you’re also going to get a stylish red lip traveler. To fill your sweet tooth, delicious treats from Laura Secord.

Sundays are a day for relaxation, and we all know, no one works harder than a busy mom. Today, December 13th gift is for all you over-worked moms out there, or anyone just looking to pamper and distress this holiday season. Come indulge with a Paris Glamour Set from Bath And Body Works and then snuggle up in a new Paris PJ set.

I don’t know about you, but nothing gets me more excited for the holidays than cheesy, matching, family photos. I have to admit, Derek and I love to match when taking pictures, and it is a yearly tradition to take a family photo (the two of us and our dogs) in front of the tree each December. Since I already own this lip sweater, and picked up this polar bear sweater for him, I wanted to share the love with you guys. Also included, I’m the Boss and Boss mugs, you can decide who’s the boss in your relationship.
