Shoppers Drug Mart has always been the #1 choice for online shopping, but it’s become even more user-friendly after enabling the new online gift finder. So instead of fighting through the hordes at a mall or trying to guesswork your way through your shopping list, you’ll be able to do your holiday browsing in a jiffy – and at a great price, to boot!
For the unconvinced, let’s go over all the ways in which Shoppers Drug Mart will help you with your holiday shopping. For one, do you prepare for your holiday shopping in advance or do you wait until the absolute last minute? And do you often feel panicked after realizing that you have a very, VERY long list of people to buy gifts for, and not that much free time to spare?
And that’s where Shoppers Drug Mart’s Gifts Made Easy event comes into play! Shoppers Drug Mart has somehow managed to create an online destination where you can do all your last-minute gift shopping, and the online gift finder [as part of the Gifts Made Easy initiative] will allow you to filter gifts by price, type of person you’re shopping for, and the categories of the gifts themselves. In other words, think an online shopping retailer, but without the hassle, without the chance of getting ripped off, and with high-quality products.
Plus, Shoppers Drug Mart store will have in-store promotions, holiday gift sets, and sales throughout the holiday season, from November 12th to December 25th. On some of the days, most stores will stay open late, and shoppers will be able to earn Shoppers Optimum Points on almost every purchase – and that can be used at a later date as well. The main events to remember during this time period are (1) “Give Beauty, BeautyBOUTIQUE by Shoppers Drug Mart” on November 8th and (2) The “Get Set For The Happiest Holidays” on November 15th, with 3 additional gift guides/beauty books being available in late November/early December.
Now, I personally have already made my decisions about holiday shopping, and I used the online gift finder to get a One Direction ‘You & I’ beauty set [including body lotion, shower gel, and perfume] for my teenage cousin, Danielle. She is a huge One Direction fan and she will love it!
I found a Quo by Orly 6-piece Nail Polish Gift set, and it was the perfect gift for daughter, Robyn. I know she loves to paint up her nails in different colors, and this is something she’ll be able to use for the next six months, at least.
Of course I could not forget my husband and I found the perfect Fragrance sampler [with all the biggest and best high-brand names. I have to admit my husband is obsessed with fragrances and I know this is going to be the perfect gift for him.
My dad has been telling me for a while that he needs to pick up an electric toothbrush and when I saw the Philip Sonicare electronic toothbrush I knew it was the perfect gift for him. This product is particularly excellent for the Modern Man, not least because my dad is often in a rush during the morning and this Sonicare allows them to brush his teeth AND get several other morning chores down at the same time.
Lastly I found a full blown makeup kit, the Quo Beauty Boudoir [with all the shades of eye shadow you could possibly want] for my sister Rosie. My sister travels a lot and this is the perfect gift for her. All her makeup in one spot.
The Beauty Lover and Luxurious Lady options enabled me to buy gifts for my cousin, mother, and sister fairly easily, and it was incredibly [and surprisingly] efficient to narrow down the choices for them using the Gift Finder. The One Direction set came with the Luxurious Lady selection, the Quo Beauty Boudoir [including the eyeshadows] and Quo by Orly 18 piece Mini Nail Polish Set was a part of the Beauty Lover selection, and the men’s fragrances and technology fell under the ‘Modern Man’ selection. GIFTS MADE EASY, indeed.
Then, the gifts for the Modern Man were also easy to narrow down in the male category, and in addition to the fragrance sampler, other options in the same range included the Gillette ProGlide Holiday Pack. There’s also some sweets [specifically, chocolate] available for any hosts and entertainers throwing holiday parties and running out of interesting refreshments for their guests. And you know what? Instead of listening to us talk about all the gifts we’re buying, come join us at #giftsmadeeasy.
There’s also a contest being held from December 1st to December 24th, where you’ll be able to visit the Shoppers Drug Mart website every day for a chance to win 15 fabulous prizes everyday (360 in total), all the way from skin care and perfumes to toys, gift cards and electronics for the non-females and non-adults in the family.
