Have you finished your holiday shopping yet? If not, it is time to get a move on! Westfield Shopping Centers
are the “Place to Holiday” for everyone on your gift list! I can always count on getting fantastic deals for every person in my family at Westfield Countryside, Westfield Brandon and Westfield Citrus Park.
In addition, you can take the kiddos along with you to meet Santa! He will now be making his seasonal home at the mall through December 24. You can get a FAST pass to skip the line by purchasing photo packages in advance online. How awesome is that? The line can sometimes get long so I love this option. You will want to look at each shopping center’s hours for visiting hours with Santa HERE
as they can vary by location. I plan on taking Brady next week so stay tuned for photos! He is so excited and cannot wait to tell Santa what he wants for Christmas!
I had the opportunity to visit Westfield Countryside recently and scored some amazing deals! My tree is packed with presents for everyone on my gift list this year!
Here are a few tips and tricks that can help to make your holiday shopping a fun experience for the entire family!
1. Shop Early -Not only does this reduce unwanted stress in your life, but it also allows you to spend more time with your family and friends this holiday season which is the most important priority. Shopping early also keeps you away from those crazy crowds!
2. Use the Westfield Shopping App and Westfield Holiday Gift Guide– Westfield Malls US has their own app which has proven to very helpful for my family and I. This app is like a shopping assistant with innovative features and time-saving benefits. It also features exclusive deals and events. You can even view movie times watch trailers and buy movie tickets! How awesome! You can also view the Westfield Holiday Gift Guide HERE which has some great gift ideas for everyone of all ages.
3. Use money saving coupons and offers from your favorite stores– Be sure to sign up for coupons and apps to the stores you frequent the most. They will send you coupons via the mail and email which will prove to be very beneficial during your holiday shopping experience. Using coupons really is a great way to get the most bang for your buck and to stretch those hard-earned dollars.
4. Take advantage of the Family Parking and Family Lounges at Westfield Malls- I love that Westfield Malls really cares about the family. From the Family Parking Spots to the Family Lounges, I feel like shopping at Westfield Malls really is a great family experience! If you have little ones, no worries, Westfield Malls has you covered! They even have special nursing rooms in the Family Lounge so that Moms can nurse their little ones in privacy.
5. Have fun- The holidays can be a stressful time, but it doesn’t need to be. Just slow down and be sure to enjoy every moment with your family and friends! Make a day of it, and while you are out shopping, grab lunch or dinner at one of the many fabulous restaurants that Westfield Shopping Centers has to offer!

Disclosure: I was provided a wreath from Christmas Forest in exchange for my honest opinion. All thoughts are my own. (Please see my disclosure policy)
One of the things that I love most about the holiday season is the smell of a fresh cut Christmas tree. The smell of evergreen lingers in the air and it cannot help to put a smile on my face! While I may not always be able to have a fresh cut Christmas tree here in Florida, I can have the smell of Christmas thanks to the beautiful wreaths from Christmas Forest!
What is Christmas Forest? “It is a place where magic happens every day, and the sights and scents of the holidays are alive year-round. From their very first handmade Christmas wreath sold back in 1976 at Pike Place Farmer’s Market until now, they have made it their mission to bring the very essence of Christmas into every wreath that we create. Alive with the fresh evergreen scent of the Cascade Mountains, each of their handcrafted wreaths is a one-of-a-kind creation, and a unique representation of who they are.”
I was given the amazing opportunity to feature Christmas Forest in my Holiday Gift Guide this year and they were so generous to send a wreath to review. Christmas Forest sent me their Alpine Wreath and it is absolutely stunning! The pictures do not do it justice. In addition, the smell of Christmas is now in the air throughout my house! It definitely puts me in the Christmas spirit! The front of the box that the wreath was shipped in was too cute and has the fun message pictured below. My 6 year old really thought that the wreath came from Santa and his elves! How cute is this?
The Alpine Christmas Wreath looks a lot like the signature Cascade Wreath, but the elves added red berries for an extra Christmas color. Enjoy the aroma of the alpine fresh Christmas wreath from the forests of the Pacific Northwest. Everyone who sees this wreath on your door will love the pastel blue juniper berries and pale yellow incense buds from the Oregon desert. It’s very special and oh-so-stunning!
Thanks to generous folks at Christmas Forest, one My Sweet Savings reader will have the opportunity to win an Alpine Christmas Wreath for themselves!

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!
