Early Holiday Shopping Deals and Holiday Shopping Tips at Westfield Malls || Tampa Mama

12 Comments Uncategorized

With four kids, I have to be on ready for Christmas! And shopping early at Westfield Shopping centers is the perfect place for us to get a head start on the holidays! We love Westfield Shopping Centers – Westfield Brandon, Westfield Citrus Park and Westfield Countryside, because we know we will always find awesome deals and gifts for everyone on our lists!

Here are some tips for making your holiday shopping just as enjoyable as walking in a winter wonderland!

  • Plan a Westfield Shopping date night!  With three locations around the Tampa Bay area, there’s bound to be one close by! My husband and I love to plan a date night to shop for the kids and then enjoy the sights and sounds of the season with a dinner at one of the many restaurants found at Westfield Shopping Malls!  We love California Pizza Kitchen at Westfield Brandon!  This has become a holiday tradition for us!
  • Take advantage of Family Parking!  Westfield Brandon has spots near the mall so your little ones won’t have to walk that far!
  • If you are taking your little elves shopping, make sure to break up the day with a stop at the PlaySpaces inside the mall near the food court! And if you are shopping with even littler ones, make yourself at home in the Family Lounges. These are the perfect places to stop into and take a break from a days worth of shopping!
  • Skip the line to see Santa!  Hop online and get into the fast lane to see Santa! Westfield Citrus Park Mall is already taking reservations!
  • Short on time this season?!  Get your car washed with Pronto Wash while you shop!  It’s the perfect way to multi-task this holiday!

And there’s always something fun happening at your local Westfield Shopping Mall! Be surprised and delighted by the **Merry Makers** as they bring moments of holiday cheer to shoppers November 20-27.

Make sure you download the Westfield app to access holiday shopping discounts and special events. It’s the best app to have while shopping this season!  Who doesn’t want to save a few bucks!

    I would use the extra cash to buy my boys some jackets and maybe some pants 🙂 thanks for a chance

    I would use the $100 to check off my kids’ Christmas list. My daughter is obsessed with Hot Topic and Sephora and my son loves Gamestop. I can knock all three of those at the Westfield Citrus Park Mall!

    This is definitely my favorite time of year and oh how I love shopping for all those extra special gifts. When shopping I love finding all those big and small gifts that touch the heart yet make them laugh! I am blessed to have an 11 year daughter, 4 nephews, and 2 nieces…I can add those finishing touches to their Christmas gifts because watching them light up is what I look forward too!

    I feel I had an extra $100 dollars to spend at Westfield Mall I would treat my kids to a day of fun at the mall for Christmas. I’m a mom of four and for all of us to go out and eat together, go to the movies, go shopping for shoes, etc….becomes a pretty pricey event.

    I would take them all to see the Mall Santa first, then I would get them all fitted for new shoes, take in a movie and then end our adventure in the food court. That gift card would bring quite a lot of Christmas joy towards helping us make some great memories.

    Thanks! Fingers crossed.

    The date night idea is a must! I think I would use the gift card to have a fun Christmas shopping date night with the wife at Westfield Brandon with everything they have to offer, presents and dinner with the wife would be in order!

    This year I’m embracing the $10 challenge! Each child will be given just $10 to spend for each other and on us! My hope is the find that special gift and really put forth the effort to find it. I think it makes it special knowing it took time to pick out. I’m trying to teach them it’s about the thought not the money. Of course if we won the $100 gift card I may have to split that up too lol Thank you to our favorite Tampa Mana!

    I have an tree at my work which carry names of under privileged children. I would spend the additional $100 on toys for them. My shopping tip – keep an eye on bfads.net and strategically hit the stores at the right times #HowDoYouHoliday

    I’d use the extra $100 on a birthday dinner out for my youngest. His birthday is right after Christmas so he feels he always gets cheated.

  9. Reply Diana Blinkhorn says:

    I’d use the gift card for my sweet Hazel. 3rd babies have tons of handmedowns and it would be nice for her to have something special for herself
