What they lack in jam-packed parking lots and labyrinth-like directories they more than make up for in heart—and sparkling retailers stocked with gifts for everyone on your list. Here, our list of Vancouver’s top smaller malls to shop this holiday season. —Noa Nichol


vancouver centre mall. Get connected this Christmas at Vancouver Centre Mall, conveniently located downtown at West Georgia and Granville Street and boasting direct access to SkyTrain’s Vancouver City Centre Station. Shop independent boutiques like Dove Knot Jewelry, Fashion Addition and Bay Fresh Flowers for one-of-a-kind gifts, or visit retailers like London Drugs and Tom Lee Music for stocking stuffers and perfect under-the-tree presents. After all that retail therapy, take a moment to recharge with a coffee and snack at Starbucks, Tim Hortons or Sushi Café Kitchen.


sinclair centre. Enjoy the finest shopping and services surrounded by the stunning architectural heritage of Sinclair Centre. Just steps from Waterfront Station, this beautiful shopping centre is bursting with a glittering array of upscale retailers, including Leone, The Perfume Shoppe and Diamond Deals Jewellery—and its very own UPS store to help you ship off all those gifts! Be sure to make time to grab a bite at L2 Café: an authentic Italian bistro offering a variety of fresh cuisine daily.


oakridge centre. Though you may not think of Oakridge Centre as small in terms of square footage, the sense of community it has worked so hard to create among its 130 retailers and their loyal customers most certainly makes it an intimate shopping-mall experience. From opulent fashion and beauty to home furnishings and decadent treats, Oakridge offers a magnificent blend of classic, cherished brands, trendy must-haves and unique treasures sure to impress even your toughest gift-getting critic.
