The Shops at Mission Viejo


It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The holiday season is officially here, and I am beyond excited! I have teamed up with Simon Malls and the Shops at Mission Viejo to tell you all about the premier holiday shopping destination.


The Shops at Mission Viejo is my favorite place to check off everyone on my Christmas gift list. From upscale multi-option retailers such as Nordstrom and Macy’s, to the Disney Store and the Lego Store-it is so easy to find great deals on gifts for everyone!


While we were shopping on our most recent trip, we of course had to visit Santa! If you saw my Snaps/IG Stories, you already know how terrified my youngest was of him! However, I cannot say enough amazing things about The Shops at Mission Viejo’s Santa! He was so kind and patient. He even tried to make small talk with Finn about his likes (Mickey Mouse) to ease his nerves. The whole staff and team were friendly, professional, and made our experience with Saint Nick, one with will always remember.

One of our other favorite things to do during the holidays at the Shops at Mission Viejo, is to visit the Christmas Shop! My heart gets so full of christmas cheer whenever we visit! I love all of the irresistible decor, and cute ornaments.


It is a shopping tradition of ours to always-always stop by Nordstroms Cafe and enjoy a treat! The boys love the cookies that are as big as their heads!


I outlined some sales I found while shopping on Snapchat, but to keep up with the latest steals and deals check out The Deals at the Shops at Mission Viejo! For sure add this Simon location to your shopping route this season-maybe I’ll even bump into you there!
