The holidays are supposed to be filled with cheer, family, and friends, but oftentimes, the task of finding the perfect gifts for everyone on your list can make things stressful. Shopping doesn’t have to be anxiety-inducing, though. In fact, it can be pretty darn easy, even if you hate shopping — you just have to know where to shop.
Case-in-point: Heartland Town Centre.
There are two WINNERS stores, a HomeSense, and a Marshalls all within five minutes of each other — and all with plenty of parking. So, if you’re looking to knock out your holiday shopping all in one go, look no further than these four stores.
From presents that’ll suit anyone of any age or interest, to wrapping paper and gift cards, and even treats for your holiday parties, shopping at the Heartland Town Centre WINNERS, HomeSense, and Marshalls is a no-brainer. With so many unique items to choose from at such great prices, you can’t wait when you find something great because the next day it might be gone! It’s like a treasure hunt at each store – and that’s the magic of it all!
In case you need more proof that these stores will make holiday shopping easier, here are 16 gift ideas that we found at WINNERS, HomeSense, and Marshalls at Heartland Town Centre:
Matching Pajamas for the Whole Family
Is there anything cuter than a family that matches? We don’t think so! Take #FamilyGoals to the next level with matching holiday pajamas. At the WINNERS at Mavis and Matheson, we found sets made for matching, but you can get creative and browse through the racks for different colour schemes and styles. The sleepwear selections at the Heartland Town Centre WINNERS and Marshalls can’t be beat, and if you can’t find what you’re looking for at one store, you’re sure to find it at the next.
Baby, it’s cold outside! And the perfect way to stay warm over the winter is with a big, cozy sweater. Both WINNERS stores and the Marshalls at Heartland Town Centre have a stellar selection of cozy sweaters from top name brands your giftee is sure to love, at prices you (and your wallet) will love, too.
Pro tip: Hit up all three brands and visit often — new items are always arriving, so you never know what gems you’ll be able to find.
Know someone who’s on #TeamCozy? A throw blanket is the perfect gift because you can never have too many. Of the four stores that we visited, HomeSense definitely had the largest selection. From fuzzy textures and classic tartans, to perfectly packed cable knit throws, your giftee will love snuggling up with whatever you choose.
Bags and Accessories
Bags and accessories are a great gift to give someone who already has great style. Small items like wallets, gloves, hats, and scarves make the perfect stocking stuffers, and WINNERS and Marshalls have a huge selection to browse for both men and women.
Pro tip: WINNERS, HomeSense, and Marshalls all offer the option to choose a gift receipt with your purchase, which is a great way to ensure your giftee ends up with something they love. Make sure to grab one as you check out. That way, they can get a store credit or exchange their gift if it’s not quite their style.
Games are the gift that keeps on giving, and every time your giftee plays, they’ll think of you! At HomeSense, we spotted some awesome game sets that’ll add just the right amount of fun to anyone on your shopping list’s life. For board game aficionados, keep an eye out for classic games that double as home decor, or spoil your loved ones with trivia, memory, or guessing games — the options are endless!
Nothing makes you want to be a kid again more than browsing the toy aisles at WINNERS, HomeSense, and Marshalls. All four of the stores at Heartland Town Centre have a great selection of cool kids’ gift ideas; we’re talking giant stuffed animals, child-sized cars, child-sized kitchens, trucks, dolls, and more. The hard part about shopping for your kiddos at WINNERS, HomeSense, and Marshalls won’t be finding the perfect gift — it’ll be stopping at just one!
Ready-Made Gift Baskets
Nobody said gifting was easy — in fact, it’s probably one of the harder things to do. But WINNERS, HomeSense, and Marshalls make things a little less stressful with their selection of beautiful gift baskets. You can find full sections of each store dedicated to these baskets, which come in different price ranges and sizes, and are filled to the brim with the best holiday goodies — think chocolates, cookies, mugs, and more. Because they’re so easy to grab and go, we suggest ditching the wine and making this your go-to host/hostess gift instead.
Holy Grail Beauty Products
If you’re looking for a store with the widest selection of top beauty products, we suggest checking out the new WINNERS at Mavis and Britannia, which features an expanded beauty section. Whatever you choose to pick up — whether it’s a palette, lip gloss set, skincare, or haircare — it’s sure to make your beauty-lover swoon. The best part? You can score brand names that impress for a fraction of the regular retail price.
While you’re in the beauty section, be sure to check out all of the beauty tools that WINNERS and Marshalls have in store. These bigger-ticket items are super affordable and well worth the purchase, especially if someone on your list is truly beauty-obsessed. We found vanity mirrors, beauty cases, and even the “it” item of 2019: the coveted beauty fridge. On top of that, curling irons, hair straighteners, and blow dryers are great choices, too. The selection is amazing – you’ll be sure to find every type of curling wand or iron, hair dryer, or hair straightener you can imagine!
A classic timepiece is a wardrobe staple, so if you’re looking to pick one up for someone on your list, WINNERS is a great place to start (and end) the hunt. Stop by the jewelry section at either WINNERS store at Heartland Town Centre to find perfectly packed designer watches in a variety of styles, all at incredible prices.
Luxury Eats and Sweets
While you’re making your rounds, don’t forget to check out the food aisles. This is the best section for foodies, Secret Santa, and White Elephant gifts because everyone loves to eat. From giant jars of cookies and candy sets, to truffle oils and hot sauce samplers, we’d be surprised if you walked out empty-handed.
Serve and Cookware
Another great gift for foodies? Serve and cookware! WINNERS, HomeSense, and Marshalls all have an amazing selection of brand name items — even the best of the best is affordable at these stores. Know a foodie or an at-home chef? A great platter or baking dish is the way to their heart. Gift one of these and you can definitely expect some delicious treats to make their way back as a thank you!
Is it just us or are stocking stuffers the funnest things to shop for? The WINNERS, HomeSense, and Marshalls at Heartland Town Centre make it particularly easy to fill up stockings with affordable giftables. You’ll find items like holiday-themed socks, pens, games, desk calendars, notebooks, teas, candy, mugs, water bottles, and so much more. While you can find great stocking stuffers in every corner of the store, the checkout aisle is the jackpot.
Pro tip: Don’t forget to pick up your holiday gift bags, wrapping paper, and cards in this same aisle!
Nothing pairs better with the holidays than a fun cocktail! All four stores we visited at Heartland Town Centre had an impressive assortment of bar accessories, but we particularly loved the selection that HomeSense boasted. Mixer and glass sets are the perfect addition to a bar aficionado’s collection, but you’ll also find cute wine tumblers and flasks that make great bar cart accessories!
Headphones and Other Tech Gadgets
You don’t have to spend a fortune to find a great pair of headphones — we found tons at all four stores. There were lots of different styles to choose from, so you’ll be able to find a pair that suits your giftee’s needs. But the tech gadgets and accessories don’t stop there — at WINNERS and Marshalls, we saw a huge variety of speakers, phone cases, and even a karaoke machine!
Candles and Diffusers
Last but not least are candles and diffusers. The wellness fanatic or decor enthusiast on your list is sure to appreciate the new, soothing scents you bring into their lives. However, if a diffuser is something your giftee already has in their home, just like throw blankets, we’re big believers that you can never have too many candles!
And if all else fails…gift cards!
Let’s be real: nobody’s ever gotten mad about receiving a gift card. And the best part about receiving a gift card from WINNERS, HomeSense, and Marshalls is that it can be redeemed at any of the stores all across Canada. If you’re in a bind, a gift card is the quickest way to guarantee your giftee will get something that they love — and isn’t that the greatest gift of all?
