Your Find Christmas Downtown Bucket List: 25 Things To Check off Your List

By Kait Kucy, Nov 30


Find Christmas Downtown is finally here! It is time to get in the holiday spirit, enjoy live music and performance, get a head start on your holiday shopping and celebrate the start of the Christmas season. There is so much to see and do while you are down at the CORE - I’ve made a bucket list of twenty-five fun and holiday-inspired things you should check out. Beyond this - so many retailers are having special offers and fun in-store activities so be sure to visit all of your favourites as you shop, shop, shop!

 

  1. Drop off donations to CORE Guest Services for The Magic of Christmas Charity.
  2. Pick up something sparkly at Holt Renfrew - you deserve it!
  3. Indulge in a Frozen Hot Chocolate at Second Cup
  4. Visit the CORE’s Gift Wrapping Station and get your gifts professionally wrapped.
  5. Tell Santa Claus what you want for Christmas (and get a free photo).
  6. Sniff (and buy!) a maple syrup candle from Roots.
  7. Enjoy the beautiful sounds of some of the daily performances as they fill the CORE with holiday classics.
  8. Grab dinner with your BFF at Cactus Club. Pro-tip: Szechun lettuce wraps are AMAZING.
  9. Get some holiday dinner table inspo from Maison Simons Home
  10. Browse destinations at Flight Centre and start planning your 2018 adventures.
