Do you ever get a little sick of hearing about how amazing Santa Claus is? As a wife and mother, I know that behind every great man is an ever greater woman propping him up, so when I heard that the Upper Canada Mall’s 2015 holiday campaign celebrates the modern-day take on Mrs. Claus I thought, finally, some recognition!
In my home celebrating the holidays leaves me with more than my share of responsibility at this time of the year. I shop for and wrap all of the gifts, decorate the home, I host parties, make dinner for friends and family, and basically handle everything that gets thrown my way while my husband says things like “don’t worry, I have something we can use as a gift in the basement” or “I didn’t want turkey anyway, let’s just order a pizza”.
Sure my husband helps me out with things here and there, but the weight of the season rests mostly on my shoulders. Upper Canada Mall’s #IamMrsClaus campaign highlights what most of us do each holiday season, which is that we take on the holidays full force, hopefully looking stylish while we are doing it. Every woman is represented by this fabulous Mrs. Claus. To make the holidays a bit easier, Upper Canada Mall has released an extensive gift guide to help us find that perfect gift for each person on our list.
There are all kinds of other special perks Upper Canada Mall and Mrs. Claus are bringing us this holiday season such as extended shopping hours, a gift wrapping service with the money raised donated to charity, and the reminder that it’s important that we Master’s of the Holiday’s treat ourselves with a little #MyMrsClaus gift in between all of the hard work we are doing.
This past weekend Mrs. Claus presented some of her savvy tips for the season to keep organized and zen this holiday season!
