Gift Guide

Get ready for the holiday season

A d

s the first strains of your favourite Christmas carols ring in the d air and twinkling lights illuminate our winter nights, the stage is set the stage for the most magical season of the year. Whether you’re looking for that ideal outfit for your New Year’s celebration, decorating ideas for your holiday home, or the perfect way to say “I love you,” the possibilities are endless here in Greater Victoria, where the seasonal celebrations really are something special, from outdoor entertainment to roasted chestnuts on the corner and even an occasional visit from Santa himself. So, what is topping your shopping list this holiday season?

No matter who’s on your “nice” list, you’ll find plenty in store from Greater Victoria retailers! For those in need of a little inspiration, Black Press has compiled its annual Holiday Gift Guide, packed with must-have ideas and terrific deals. While you’re out and about, share the spirit of the season by participating in one of the city’s many charity programs, such as Black Press’s annual Pennies for Presents, and help make the holidays a little brighter for those less fortunate. Just like keeping your shopping dollars local, it’s one more way to support your friends and neighbours, and help build a healthy, vibrant community. From Black Press to you, happy holidays!

Happy Holidays!
