Now that the holiday season is behind us, it’s time to turn the focus onto ourselves! If you were one of the lucky ones to receive an Oakridge Centre gift card this Christmas, why not treat yourself? The Oakridge gift card can be used at over 100 retailers, so you have a lot of stores to choose from!
Tip: Check your balance before you shop. You can do this by calling the number on the back of the card, going to https://getmybalance.com, or simply dropping by the Concierge desk (located next to the Lego Store).
Without further ado, here are my top picks for where to use that gift card, and a few ideas on what to spend it on!
1. Stuart Weitzman
Is there a pair of boots more iconic than Stuart Weitzman’s 5050 boot? Over the last two decades, every shoe brand has tried to mimic these coveted boots and, dare I say, every woman has an inspired-by pair in her closet. But nothing beats the real thing. And if you’re looking for a bit more heel height, they have a spin on the classic 5050 style, called the Reserve. Both retail for $895 and come in either suede or leather. So now you have no excuse not to own these!
2. Tiffany & Co.
A piece of jewellery can add an extra special touch to any outfit. Whether you’re looking for something simple (like a wire bracelet) or to add some sparkle (like diamond earrings), you can find it at Tiffany. One of my favourite items (it’s so hard to choose just one) is the Olive Leaf hoop earrings. They add an elegant twist to the classic hoop earrings and just the right amount of shimmer. They retail for $7,200 and worth every penny because these will be your go-to earrings time and time again.
Maybe you’ve been eyeing that new iPhone or iPad. Or maybe it’s a new MacBook Air that you want. Whatever it is, now you have an incentive to walk into the Apple store (not that you really need an excuse) and walk out with a fabulous new tech toy! My personal pick would be the iPhone XS because of the camera. As a casual photographer, I don’t want to carry around a separate camera, but I always want to capture those special moments. iPhones have always made one of the best phone cameras on the market and the XS is no exception. It retails from $1379 or, if you want a bigger screen, you can go for the XS Max from $1519.
