You’ve probably heard me say it before but when it comes to buying Christmas gifts for our boys we stick to the Need, Read, Want and Wear categories. And today I am sharing with you some things I picked up for them at the Tacoma Mall! They were so kind to host me for the afternoon. With a wide variety of stores to shop from I had a wonderful time finding everything I needed and more for our loved ones during this Christmas Season.

Before got to shopping I stopped in at The Cheesecake Factory. I have fond memories at The Cheesecake Factory, it was a place my Grandma would take me on my birthday when I was a kid. This specific location is celebrating their one year anniversary this month! With over 200 items on their menu I had plenty of options to choose from. They all sounded so good! But I settled on the Crab + Artichoke Dip to start and finished with the Steak + Shrimp Scampi. And I was sipping on Tacoma’s Broken Window IPA.
Not only was my food delicious but I was also impressed by this locations atmosphere. It was open and inviting, definitely a place I can see bringing my boys. And I’m looking forward to a date night with my husband here!
Now to the shopping.. I stopped in at H&M and snagged these awesome sweatshirts. They are so fitting for each of the boys, I was thrilled to find them. I also found their jeans for 10$!! The whole time I was asking myself “and why don’t I come here more often?” – insert palm to face emoji. I’m saving more money shopping here already. And I will add I had more luck in store with sizes and selection in store than online!
While making my way through the mall I came across a Fred Meyer Jewelers, which was perfect timing because I’ve been meaning to get my rings cleaned and inspected.
Then on to my favorite one of my favorite stores, Nordstrom.. I have to say Nordstrom is quite magical around this time of year. And the deals are even better then the decor! Hunter Boots have been on my list for them, I was able to find two of my boys sizes in the color I wanted but not the third. But an associate was quick to order a pair for me with plenty of time before Christmas. At Nordstrom I also found some crayons, socks and undies for stocking stuffers.
While I was there I also stopped by the beauty counter because the Gift Sets at Nordstrom are always so good to pass up. I came back for these ones!
My focus was to share my finds for the boys but I also stopped in several others shops for my loved ones. Including; Concept, Fuego, The Art of Shaving along with Bath and Body Works.
Tell me! Where are you shopping this Christmas season? Do you have a method to the madness?
Merry Christmas to You and Yours
