Lots and lots and lots of Christmas decorations, and the staff are very helpful and friendly. They help personalise some items, and these make lovely little souvenirs to take back home.

A lovely shop to spend time in. Some tree ornaments they sell there are so cute!

They also sell Rogers chocolates, and the dark chocolate covered orange peel and dark chocolate covered expresso beans are yummy...

Maybe my expectations were too high but this was just another Christmas shop. I was expecting to find some unique decorations, but the only Canada/Banff decorations they had could be found in most of the souvenir shops.

Oh wow this has everything you need for Xmas even down to a tree

Traditional Xmas ornaments ranging from baubles to snow babies to the theme related sports ornaments, looney tunes and no Xmas is complete without the grinch.

A great shop for all things Xmas to be found in Banff Avenue but may take a while for you to browse around.

Great service from the staff there too which makes it an enjoyable experience

All year around Christmas in this store! Some collectables and a range of prices for all pockets. Traditional, Disney, Snoopy, any theme you will find it here.

When we go to somewhere special, we like to buy a Christmas ornament so that every Christmas when we hang it , we remember where we purchased it and the memories associated with our holiday. We visited 'The Spirit of Christmas' store in Banff on 31 May 2017 for this purpose. The store was wonderful with so many ornaments to choose from and the staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. They put a special message on a snow globe that we purchased for our son and his family and informed us that we had to put it in our hold baggage for our journey home, whIch was very helpful to know. A truly magical store. We wish we has something similar in the UK. Jim and Angela O'Sullivan
