Top Ten Stores to Online Shop for Holidays

  The holidays bring out the worse in many -- that’s because they don’t know where and how to look properly to be stress less. Many spend time hustling to every store and only to find out one place has it and another has it …but across the city. Don’t worry, these websites below ship to Canada and they have just the gifts you’re looking for this holiday season.     1. Karmaloop   Karmaloop has great underground hipster Clothing, shoes and accessories for reasonable and affordable prices. Brands like Billionare Boys Club, Dimepiece, LRG, HUF and Jeffrey Campbell, Vans, and much more. There is always a sale on Karmaloop and it gives the option of shopping cheap, by brand or by gender. Enjoy.   2. Nordstrom   Not all products can ship to Canada, however, Nordstrom is the online ‘Sears’ and ‘The Bay’. It provides expensive designs for him and her as well as gift packages just for the season under ‘Holiday Gifts’ tab. Anything you need or want you can find on Nordstrom.   3. Asos   ASOS was the leading online store for Cyber Monday this year, simply because it has everything trendy, simple, and just right for the holidays.  There is always a handy sale going on the website.  ASOS is also mobile friendly and has it’s own app, so if you’re on the go you can purchase a gift via smartphone or tablet. Lastly, for students it offers a 10% guaranteed discount!   4. Mr. Porter   Now welcoming shipping to Canada, Mr. Porter! Rather on the expensive and dapper side of the fashion world, Mr. Porter is the store to get a man something sharp, classy, unique and handsome; right down to the accessories.  They even offer Grooming and Gifts for reasonable prices down to ‘Under $150’.  Mr. Porter is a real Gentleman’s store with gifts for Dads, Husbands, and Boyfriends.   5. Polyvore   If you’re terrible at gifts, this is the perfect gift guide site for you. Polyvore will mix and match and find the perfect items to make your significant other happy! Fashion, home décor and beauty supplies are all found here.   6. Cncpts   Sneaker Lovers, attention! This is a website for you, if you’re a hypebeast and you want the exclusive and limited edition shoes or retro kicks for you and your significant other. Cncpts is a great site for you.  The brands are overflowing, Reebox, New Balances, Nike, Balenciaga, Clarks, Adidas, Cole Haan and some exclusive brands You’ve never heard of. The site also sells Canada Goose Jackets, for those that had no luck in finding some at the stores downtown.   7. Ali express   You’ve heard this is where many women get their hair extensions from, but it’s not only for the weave and wig trade. Ali Express is similar to an ebay in that it has several vendors offering great gifts and knick knacks for you. You can shop electronics, computers, hair, beauty, fashion and more. It’s a gr online eat store and the shipping is no joke, fast and efficient with reasonable prices.   8. Pacsun   Shop under 20, 30 or 40 dollars. With ‘Nike’ and ‘Addidas’ making it difficult to shop online, Pacsun is a great way to purchase name brand companies at a low price. Much like an online ‘Winners’, Pacsun has a variety of brands: ‘Crooks & Castles’, ‘Converse’, ‘Nike’ and specific celebrity gear like ’Odd Future’.   9. Hypebeast   Another store for the Hypebeast, this website also has exclusive brands from all over ( Europe, and America) right at the tips of your fingers. Generally catered for male demographic in terms of grooming and apparel, but the shoes, can always be diverse if you find your equivalent size in women’s.  Shipping is Worldwide, but order from now to receive on time!   10.  BestBuy   Good ol’ BestBuy, it never fails when it comes to getting electronics efficiently. Of course you can go into the nearest location, but say you weren’t feeling to make that trip. Best Buy has great deals around this time for their ‘Holiday Sales’ and shipping is reasonable.   Source:,,,,,,,,,   @danicasamuel
