With the holidays in full swing, a major chunk of our time is spent searching through shopping centres for the perfect gifts. And while that might seem like the biggest holiday chore right now, Cadillac Fairview (CF) is transforming our holiday shopping into a magical experience.

For those who don’t already know, all of our favourite shopping centres in and around Toronto are owned and operated by CF. Think CF Toronto Eaton Centre, CF Sherway Gardens, CF Shops at Don Mills, CF Fairview Mall, CF Markville and many more.

And this year, CF has decided to take holiday shopping up a notch with a slew of indoor and outdoor activities happening at CF properties around town. Here, take a look—

Live (and free) Holiday Performances

CF properties across Toronto + GTA will come alive with live festive tunes. You can catch local artists performing at most CF shopping destinations from Thursday through Sunday until Saturday, December 24th, 2022. And while the merry tunes will brighten up all shopping centres, CF Toronto Eaton Centre is hosting the Merry Merry Music series boasting an impressive line-up of popular local artists. You can check out the full schedule here.

Indoor Snow Show

This has got to be the most magical shopping experience one can get!. The iconic CF Toronto Eaton Centre turns into a winter wonderland with indoor snowfall every day until Saturday, December 31st., 2022. Snowfall times are as follows: weekdays at 12:30 p.m., 5:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. (up to December 23rd) and 5:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. (December 24th to December 31st); on weekends at 3:00 p.m., 5:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. (up to December 31st). Note, due to early holiday closures, the snow showtimes are at 3:00 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.)

Mini Hockey-Golf Combo

CF is also bringing a fun outdoor experience Frozen Fairways to the GTA for the holidays. It is a truly Canadian twist on mini golf that will be set up at CF Markville (from December 21-27) and CF Sherway Gardens (January 2-8). Only here you will use a hockey stick and puck to win the nine-hole mini putt. And the best part is that all $5 reservation fees will be donated to a local charity. Be sure to book ahead to ensure you have a spot!

Shop the Holiday Trends

Despite multiple wishlists, we could all use some help when it comes to putting together the perfect holiday look. So, CF has curated Shop the Look (and Gift) holiday guides featuring their retailers. Whether you need a great gift suggestion, outfit inspo or want to uncover the hottest trends of the season, the guide has you covered. 

The Ultimate (and Convenient) Gifting Solution

You know those people on your list who claim they don’t need anything? Well, sometimes they really mean it. And in times like these, the best thing you can get them a CF SHOP! card that can be redeemed at multiple retailers at CF shopping centres. You can either purchase a physical card in person, send one by mail or send an e-gift card. Details here.

That folks, is how CF is making holiday shopping a fun and exciting holiday endeavour for us. So, grab those shopping lists and head to your nearest centre.
