christmas shopping ideas in sidneyThere is less than a week to go until the big day, so here are some Sidney Christmas shopping ideas (and remember – most Sidney businesses are open until 8:00 pm every week night until Christmas!):

Buddies Toys
Buddies Toys is probably the best toy store on Vancouver Island, and it’s located right here in Sidney on Beacon Avenue. They carry everything from Playmobil and Lego to Melissa & Doug and wooden dollhouses. When we’ve got kids in tow, we always make a point of stopping at Buddies Toys (and more often than not leave with a new treasure!) Here’s a link to their Facebook page. Be sure to like it!

Bubba Loo Children’s Boutique
Bubba Loo Children’s Boutique is another must-visit Sidney shop, especially at Christmastime.  Besides awesome original and unique children’s clothing, the Bubba Loo store frequently hosts readings by childrens’ book authors and other fun stuff for you kids – once again, well worth checking out, especially in the final mad shopping week before Christmas. Check out their Facebook page and be sure to like it!
