Only a few weeks into Fall and its hard to believe the holiday season is upon us already. Thanksgiving is a great time for reflection and with this year’s pandemic, we could all use some extra help thinking of ways we can show gratitude with ideas big or small. At Country Hills Village Shopping Centre , you can find some gifts and services to show your appreciation for loved ones and equally as important, for yourself.
Give to Yourself – Thank “You”
Focus on well-being is more important than ever so why not kick start Thanksgiving with some gratitude for yourself? Self care should be front of mind, but if you’re like me, you usually put others first before your own needs. I used to feel guilty and selfish when taking time for myself. But in reality, I won’t be any good to anyone if I neglect my own body and mind.
At Country Hills Massage there are ways I can relax and unwind. With highly trained staff including doctors and registered massage therapists I can prioritize my health from the inside out. Services included massage therapy, naturopathy, acupuncture, and hot stone massage. And don’t forget to bring along a friend or loved one because chances are they would appreciate these services too.

Nothing beats finishing a pampering with a nail care appointment at Mint Nails Spa & Lounge . The spa is spacious and fully equipped with safety glass dividers between customers and staff.
If you love treating your feet and toes on a regular basis like I do, it may be time to update your nails with a pedicure and festive color. Love this Opi 48 orange-red, perfect for autumn. So impressed with the attention to nail-care detail I received from Vivienne during my experience.
Give from the Heart – Thank Others
Who doesn’t love a boutique full of gift ideas and fresh flowers curated from all over the world? At Black Earth Floral Gallery you can find beautiful treasures made with passion, and floral arrangements designed by hand.
I love the mix of creative designs from modern, romantic to classic styles. Whether looking for some festive home decor, a centre-piece for your dinner table, or gifts for loved ones, you can be sure to find some keepsake gems here.
I don’t know about you, but cooking a big meal is always daunting for me. This year, I plan to order in for a smaller socially-distant gathering. At Saigon REX you can take out for an authentic Vietnamese style Thanksgiving, or for any time you need a break from cooking. Tried and true dishes I recommend – Stir fry Noodles with Pad Thai sauce, Charbroiled Pork Chop with Fried Egg on Steamed Rice.

Live Thankfully – Everyday
While 2020 has been full of challenges and uncertainties, I know one thing is for sure. Being thankful by treating yourself and others should be celebrated everyday, rather than just on one day or long weekend. After all, living life to the fullest includes an attitude of gratitude and spreading kindness along the way. Happy Thanksgiving!
