Christmas Shopping at Warriewood Square


I’ve always loved the convenience of shopping at a mall, especially when kids are  in tow. It’s handy having everything under one roof, with easy parking, air conditioning and bathroom facilities! Warriewood Square is a centre I have shopped at since first moving to the Northern Beaches nearly 12 years ago, I first visited it after learning it has the only K-Mart in the area, and then soon discovered I loved the manicures on offer at the Nail Bar. Being a local, I was pleased when I was approached  to partner with the shopping destination for a Christmas Styling/Shopping challenge. How could I say no?!
My full trolley – the sign of a successful shop! I actually love how close Woolies and Coles are to each other in the centre, I go between the two if I need something in particular I can’t get at one or the other.
I went a little nuts with the amazing cheese selection, the perfect one stop shop for a Christmas spread!
I recently had Sunny’s class over for our last day of school celebrations and this was the grazing platter I pulled together. I  bought all this produce at Warriewood Square…a mix between Woolies and Coles, and it fed the masses! I even had a few friends take a photo of it for their Christmas Day inspiration.
I was also pleased to see Costi’s had recently opened up, I picked up some delicious salmon for dinner.
Swish Homewares is always worth checking out when I visit, and I spotted some gorgeous gift ideas for Christmas  in here.
Can you guess who my little shopping mate has just spotted?
It’s Santa! The centre is becoming quite the popular destination around this time of year for a visit with Santa. It’s the first year Raff is starting to understand Christmas, and he can’t stop saying ‘More Chrissy!!’ everywhere we go.
The little guy is also  becoming a professional trolley loader these days too – both kids love visiting Toymate so much it’s hard to get them to leave to be honest.
Coming from a large family, I spread out my Christmas shopping opportunities and tend to pick up things as I see them. On this particular day, with two kids following me –  I managed to get to some of my favourites:
Sportsgirl – A must visit for my 14 year old niece (I love how that brand is still going strong after all those years, it was the same shop I always wanted my Christmas presents from).
Cotton On Mega Store – SO MUCH combined in the one shape here, I picked up various items, from shoes for my nephew to a bear of earrings for my sister!
Smiggle – I’m yet to meet a kid that doesn’t like Smiggle, and  there were lots of good gift ideas in here!
Toymate – So many bargains to be had in here, the kids LOVE visiting this store
Pittwater Pets – we actually don’t ever visit the centre without visiting here. The kids adore to see what puppies are in store, and Sunny chose her very treasured pet fish here, so it’s a special place!
BWS – A priority for the silly season, I purchased some bubbly to get me the through the entertaining.
The centre is also hosting lots of other Christmas activities in the lead up…
– Gift wrapping service (until Monday 24th December)
– Christmas Carols  (Sunday 18th – Sunday 23rd December)
-Bubbles + Baubles (Thursday 20th December), which I’ll be attending tonight with Sunday!
I shouldn’t forget to mention that the centre also offers lots of great coffee, a must to re-fuel when Christmas shopping.
How is everyone going with their Christmas planning this year?
