Last-Minute Christmas Shopping + $100 Westfield Giveaway

This post is in partnership with Westfield Shopping Centers.

Christmas Day is ONE WEEK from today! Ahh! Are you all finished with your Christmas shopping? If you asked me last week I would’ve flashed a gritted teeth smile kind of like “Yikes, I still have so much to do!” But thanks to Westfield Shopping Centers, and our trip to Citrus Park Mall over the weekend, I’m feeling in much better shape!

Christmas shopping can certainly be an all day affair – especially if you’re late in getting started with it! But fortunately, Westfield Shopping acts as a fantastic one-stop-shop for shopping, eating, and fun, no matter what stage you’re in during the Christmas season! And to help you out, I’m teaming up with Westfield today to give one lucky winner a $100 Westfield gift card (enter at the bottom of this post)!

Variety of Stores

One of my favorite reasons to go to the mall is that there are SO many stores to get your shop on at. And if you’re scrambling to get your shopping done, this is a mega plus because you can find something for everyone! From department stores, to clothing, home, or entertainment, Westfield’s got you covered.

Good Eats/Drinks

I don’t know about you, but I’m never one to turn down a snack/meal break. And one of the best parts of being in the mall is the array of foods you have to choose from. If you’re looking for a meal you can get a quick bite to eat at the food court, or if you want to relax a little longer, pop into a restaurant! On the flip side, if you’re looking for something a little lighter you still have a TON of on-the-go places to choose from from cookie and macaroon shops (#dessertfirst) to pretzel bites,  smoothies, and coffee.

Fun Activities!

Need a break from shopping? You can kick back (literally) and relax in the newly renovated, fancy reclining chairs at the movie theater (at Citrus Park)! We took a break from shopping this weekend to see the new Star Wars movie – it was awesome!

Didn’t have time to get your letter in to the North Pole and wanting to make sure the man in the red suit knows what’s on your wish list? You can catch Santa from 10 a.m. – 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday!

$100 Westfield Shopping Giveaway

If you’re still trying to get your shopping done, Westfield Shopping Centers are the place to be! And don’t stress – you still have 6 shopping days to get it all done! For my local people in Tampa, we’re lucky to have 3 Westfield locations in the area – Citrus Park, Brandon, and Countryside. Added bonus? You can take advantage of extended hours now through Christmas Eve and special discounts and events (specifics vary at each property).

How’s your Christmas shopping going? If you won, what would you spend the gift card on?

  • What a fun giveaway, thanks Rachel! My Christmas shopping is done actually, so I’m not sure what I would spend it on… but it would probably be a gift for me ;)

    • You go girl! And nothing wrong with pampering yourself, we all need a little self-spoiling every once in a while :)

  • Elena

    I am done with Christmas shopping. If I won I would buy my son a birthday gift

  • What a great giveaway. I can definitely think of some things to spend it on.

    • Thanks, Elise! It’s definitely a handy gift card to have!

  • What an awesome giveaway! My Christmas shopping is officially done!

  • So fun! What a wonderful giveaway! The mall is my mecca :)

    • The best, right?! Which stores are your fave to shop at?

  • Emma Louise Joanne Conrad

    Oh man, even a simple $100 would go a long way! I think I’d spend it on something for me after all that spending on others!

  • Karla Leal

    I haven’t even started christmas shopping lol I can’t get myself to step foot in the mall. I can only imagine the chaos but you made valid points! lol

    • Ah! I hope you were able to get all of your shopping done in time!

  • Amanda K

    The perfect timing for a gift card giveaway! I have 3 more things to get and then I am done with my Christmas shopping. xoxo Amanda

  • Miss ALK

    Those Christmas trees in these pictures are so pretty! I finished my shopping early this year but one gift has a DIY component and I have to finish that up this week!

    xoxo A

    • Thanks, girl! I hope you were able to get your DIY done in time – that sounds like so much fun!

  • I still have a few things to pick up and the mall is where I’ll be headed!

    • The mall is the best esp for last minute! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!

  • This looks like a lot of fun!

  • Kellymcgrew

    I just need a couple more things and stocking stuffers.

  • I’ve finished my shopping, but know this will be much appreciated by those who haven’t!

    • Awesome! It’s always good to have for post-Christmas shopping too :)

  • I’m so grateful because most of my friends and family members have opted out of buying each other things this year. Instead we’re investing time into each other, which I’m so grateful for. It definitely took a lot of the pressure off since I’m in the middle of moving. I’m glad you had a successful last minute shopping trip!

    • That’s so refreshing to hear, I love that idea! I’ve been trying to get gifts of experiences of things I can do with people, like going to a concert, sporting event, etc. too! I hope moving isn’t too stressful for you!

  • Anna Hubbard

    This is a great giveaway for those who live near a Westfield!

    • So excited to be able to give a gift card away! Even if you’re not close to one, it’s good to have if you visit a city that has one :)

  • That’s a great giveaway! I still have so much last minute shopping to do….

    • Thanks, girl! I hope you’re able to finish it up quickly!

  • Ash Neverson

    love this giveaway, and that tree looks beautiful!

    • Thanks, Ash! I love me some Christmas decorations too!

  • Love that you featured your local shopping center!

    • Thanks, Grace! I love to support local businesses when I can!

  • EEK! I need to do a couple of last minute shopping runs, including picking something up for my dad! Have a great holiday!

    • I hope you were able to find the perfect, gifts for everyone! Can’t believe Christmas is over already!!

  • Victoria Anne

    I’d buy my husband something, cause he’s the last person I always shop for.

    • I hope you were able to find him something good!!

  • Same! I love the mall because of those same reasons. And I definitely need a snack while i do some shopping hahaha.

    • Oh yeah! Snack breaks are a must when shopping, haha.

  • Aww how fun! I love frequenting the mall during the holidays even though it’s packed haha.

    • Same! I think the key is getting there early or going really late, haha.

  • i wish we had a mall here with stores like that! It would make life much easier

    • Hopefully you’ll get one soon! If not, you’ll just have to plan a visit to one in a bigger city!

  • Nichole

    I just went Christmas shopping today and we went to 2 different malls, and I love eating at the malls here in Thailand. It’s always a great day!

    • That sounds like a lot of fun! Hopefully the malls weren’t too crazy :)

  • mckenna bleu

    Even the malls can be crazy it’s definitely the best place to get things taken care of.

    • Oh, absolutely! Finding parking is never fun at stores at Christmas so it’s nice to just do it once at the mall and hit all the stores!

  • Steph Fields

    Oh man! I think I’d buy some last minute gifts!

    • I was definitely on the hunt a little closer to Christmas than I would’ve liked to be this year, haha. I hope you had a great one, Steph!

  • I thought I was so ahead on my Christmas shopping this year but I realized I still have a decent amount to do! So I will be doing lots of last minute shopping this weekend :)

    • I hate that feeling, haha. I hope you’re able to finish it up easily!

  • Caitlin

  • Amy

    hard to believe Christmas is over! I actually work at the mall and try to avoid it all cost outside of work during the holidays.. because of that I was so behind on my shopping this year!

    • Aww man! I feel like it’d be both a blessing and a curse to work at the mall, haha. I hope it wasn’t too crazy for you!

  • Bibi Camilo

    awww this is making me miss Christmas so much! love being at the mall <3

    • Same! I wish we could rewind and do Christmas all over again!
