Holiday Gift Guides from Avalon Mall

Delve into the holiday season with our festive gift-giving guide! In the spirit of the season, let us be your guide to spreading holiday cheer!

Gifts for Dad

Pick up a sentimental gift for your dad with a custom ornament from Ornaments by Santa. Find a fun ornament for his favourite interest or get a hand-lettered one with the whole family. At Newfoundland Canvas, you can order a beautiful, high-quality print or canvas of the full family perfect for hanging in your home.

For the foodies out there, head into Hickory Farms and pick up a pre-wrapped gift basket of delicious, specialty goodies for your dad. Grab tasty stocking stuffers while you’re there such as chocolate-coated snowflake pretzels, peanut brittle, or deluxe caramel-coated popcorn. 

Pick up a gift Dad and the whole family can enjoy together from Calendar Club. A themed puzzle of one of his favourite teams or tv shows is the perfect present for the dad looking to spend quality time together this holiday season. Calendar Club has so many in stock from Seinfeld and Friends, to comic book heroes.

Gifts for Mom

Give mom the gift of relaxation and time to herself with a surprise from Winterholme Wellness Centre and Spa. Their luxurious line of Eminence skincare is the perfect way to treat your mom this Christmas. Ask their staff for a personalized skincare recommendation to make your moms Christmas morning.

For the mom who loves everything Christmas and decor, pick her up a special ornament for the tree! This #1 Mom penguin is the sweetest reminder every year decorating of her family.

If you’re looking for a timeless, classic gift for mom, visit one of Avalon Mall’s jewelry stores and pick them up a beautiful piece sure to last a lifetime. At Pandora, pick up a stunning new charm for her bracelet like this adorable Little Mermaid inspired set. At Charmed Aroma, find 2-1 gift with their jewelry candles. Each specialty candle has a surprise piece of jewelry inside that gets revealed as the candle burns down.

Gifts for the Bestie

Treat your bestie to holiday cheer this year! We love giving a festive basket filled with all of her favourite things! Start assembling yours by choosing the perfect basket or bag for everything. Something that can be reused like a practical tote bag or storage basket make the perfect base for this present.

A value gift set is the perfect main present to include in your basket. We’re obsessed with these sets from Sephora, especially this Pillow Talk set form Charlotte Tilbury, the Laneige Sleeping Lip Mask set and Sol De Janeiro Travel Fragrance set. Bring the holiday vibes with a festive bath bomb from Lush, perfect for a relaxing night in of self-care. Lastly, every bestie deserves a sweet treat for Christmas. Newfoundland Chocolate Company has so many holiday treats to choose from so there’s something for everyone’s sweet-tooth.

Gifts for the Boyfriend

Whether it’s your boyfriend or husband, they deserve some fantastic gifts that show how much you care. For the music lover, check out Sunrise Records and pick them up a new vinyl for their record player. Finding an exclusive or rare variant of their favourite album or a new pressing you think they’d love makes it even more special.

For the gamers, GameStop has everything you need to make their Christmas morning! Merch of their favourite franchise or series makes the perfect stocking stuffer. A new game to play and enjoy on Christmas break makes the perfect gift. For those with a Nintendo Switch, the new Super Mario Bros. Wonder game is a great gift choice.

For stocking stuffers, you can’t go wrong with chocolate! Laura Secord has endless flavours to bring even more delicious excitement to Christmas Day!

Gifts for the Little Ones

While Santa and the elves are busy in the workshop, Avalon Mall also has all the gifts you need for a merry Christmas. Scout Elves are returning soon so it’s the perfect time to pick up a new outfit or accessory for your Elf on the Shelf! With so many stylish Claus Couture outfits to choose from at the X Store, it’ll be hard to settle on just one. 

2023 is officially the year of the Jellycat! There are so many loveable plushes to choose from including delish veggies like Broccoli and wintery Eggplant, snuggly animals like the Bunnies and Bears, or new winter characters like Amuseable Pine Cone and Merry Mouse! Find the perfect friend for your little one at Coles!

No stocking is complete without a sweet treat and Freak Lunchbox has fun snacks, candy, drinks, and more for you to choose from. If you can’t decide on just one, browse their selection of pre-packed gift boxes filled with a perfectly curated selection of treats!
