Good Morning! Are you in full Thanksgiving Day prep mode? We have had a busy week with football games, decluttering, housecleaning and shopping previews. Ready or not, the holidays are coming fast! I have my gift list ready, and while I won’t be going out until after Thanksgiving, I will be out there soon.
The other day I was invited to media preview the holiday happenings at Brea Mall. Brea Mall has been a favorite shopping venue for me since my college days at the nearby Cal State Fullerton a few (ahem) years back. I still shop there often because they have a really great selection of stores in a beautiful setting.
There were so many great give ideas that I saw that evening, here are just a few things that caught my eye.
Brea Mall Holiday Preview
Aren’t these baubles from Ben Bridge gorgeous? They are not just an engagement ring store, they have many great gifts for men and women.
I fell in love with these pearl earrings. Simple and elegant.
BoxLunch is a new store that gives back to reduce hunger. Every $10 you spend BoxLunch will help provide a meal to a person in need. $1 helps provide 11 meals secured by Feeding America® on behalf of local member food banks. How awesome is that? Check out the Storm Trooper toaster!
It is a great store for movie fans of all ages. I saw some items that I have not seen anywhere else.
Godiva has some beautiful gift boxes and wonderful chocolate treats for the season.
Kiehl’s has long been recognized as a premiere skin-care brand. I use some of their products and love them. Did you know that you can get a free sample of their products in their store? It is a great way to test a product before you purchase. I love and use their Ultra Facial cleanser.
Swarovski caught my eye with their gorgeous crystal items. These are perfect for a holiday party too! Talk about sparkles and shine!
So many cute accessories!
Even their store shines!
If you are looking for fashions for holiday parties, Guess, Maricano, and City Chic have that covered with so many cute styles.
If you are looking for holiday hosting help, the kind folks at Williams-Sonoma shared their holiday housewares collection. I love items like these that can be passed on from generation to generation.
I love the make up kits that are at NYX cosmetics. Perfect for holiday parties and stocking stuffers too!
The Art of Shaving had some really cool Peppermint items for the man in your life.
Oh and if all that shopping has you hungry and tired. Grab some great food at California Pizza Kitchen. You may have seen my post on Instagram.
Then when you have finished your shopping, you can head to The Spa at the Glen. I cannot wait to check that place out. I have never been, but plan to go soon for some holiday pampering. Talk about a great gift idea too. They have a fantastic online deal right now where you can get a $100 gift certificate for $85. That is a win-win in my book!
Brea Mall is located at
1065 Brea Mall
Brea, CA 92821
They have special holiday hours and offer AmeriPark Valet Service.
Be sure to check out the Noerr Santa Photo Experience while you are there too!
