Places in Victoria to get last minute holiday gifts!

There is still some time to pick out some gifts for your friends, family or yourself, and these places listed will help you get started!


This one is more obvious but they do offer various gifts from mugs, clothing, and candles, to books, stationery and more! There are so many options in this store, so I often take a while to browse through all the selections. Their soft-knitted scarves, mittens and hats make great gifts!


Saje offers essential oils and natural remedies such as sprays or diffuser blends to help sleep and relax. Their stress-release mist is perfect to spray around anytime to help relax.

Whole Foods

I did not know Whole Foods would sell giftable items other than food until I visited recently and purchased some room mist for a gift! They also have some fancy chocolates, soap and more!

The gift display at Whole Foods!


Costco has essentially everything but it does require a membership. However, if you know someone with a membership they are allowed to bring one person without a membership!

Hudson’s Bay

Another store with a variety of options. They have kitchenware, shoes, clothing, home essentials, accessories, skincare etc.

Shopping at Uptown


You can always find unique things here for an affordable price! Many of the things they sell only have one of each so creates a thrifting-style vibe when you are browsing.


Everyone likes Starbucks! Gift cards, tumblers, mugs, coffee beans and teas make great gifts!

Holiday Markets

Local and handmade gifts are also one of a kind. The next market is offered from Dec 11-18 on Saturdays and Sundays at 106 Superior St in Downtown Victoria.
