Make your list and check it twice! Victoria has a wonderful range of wonderful shops and local businesses where you can find unique gifts for all your loved ones — and maybe a few for yourself! Do you need some inspiration? Check out our suggestions for where to find awesome Christmas gifts in Victoria this holiday season!
 
Shop awesome malls
 
Sometimes you know exactly what you’re looking for! If you want to knock everything off your Christmas shopping list in one place, head to one of Victoria’s many great malls that houses a large array of stores under one roof. Mayfair Shopping Centre and Uptown Shopping Centre are within easy walking distance of Days Inn Victoria Uptown, or you can choose to shop at Hillside Shopping Centre or Tillicum Centre nearby. Complete your holiday shopping with ease and then take the rest of your day to relax!
 
Shop local
 
Shopping local is a great way to support the local Victoria community while finding unique gifts for your loved ones. Our hotel is located just minutes away from the heart of downtown Victoria, which is populated with awesome local boutiques and shops that are sure to have something for everyone. Do you need some recommendations? Visit Migration Boutique on Government Street, which is just 13 minutes away by public transit. All the merchandise at Migration Boutique is made on Vancouver Island and the shop features a large selection of items produced by local designers and makers, including clothing, accessories, home decor, and much more! If you’re looking for edible gifts, explore the St. Jean’s Cannery, located within the Mayfair Shopping Centre, for an appetizing selection of Vancouver Island seafood including smoked products and canned goods.
 
Local libations
 
If you have a beer lover on your list, there’s no shortage of local craft breweries selling holiday packs that will make a thoughtful gift. Check out Driftwood Brewery or Hoyne Brewing Company just a 15-minute walk away from our hotel, or Vancouver Island Brewing, a 20-minute walk away. You can find the perfect craft brew for your beer-loving friend or family member and even kick back with a pint for yourself!
 
There are so many places in Victoria to find delightful gifts for everyone on your list! Rather than thinking of holiday shopping as a chore, plan a little holiday getaway at Days Inn Victoria Uptown and turn Christmas shopping into an adventurous treasure hunt! With our comfortable rooms, impressive amenities and our convenient location near major shopping centres, you'll find your holiday shopping experience stress free.
