With a motto to “live victoriously”, Victoria Garden’s is doing just that with it’s cobble stone walkways, bubbling creeks, fine dining and superior shopping. To shop at Victoria Garden’s is really an experience everyone must experience for themselves. We were recently invited to enjoy the shopping center and see what all could be had for the upcoming Valentine’s Day holiday, all opinions are our own.

Victoria Garden’s is certainly family friendly with a large splash pad, train rides and playing area but locals know that the best shopping in the Inland Empire is done at Victoria Gardens. With major retailers such as Macy’s, JCPenny’s, Bass Pro Shops, the Apple store and so many others everything you could ever need (well, besides groceries I suppose) can be found at Victoria Gardens. With the mission to find the best Valentine’s Day gift offerings at Victoria Gardens, we had no trouble finding just what we were looking for.
Roses are Red..Shoes are Forever
Some girls like red roses and candlelit dinners for Valentine’s Day…this Funny Mom like cool shoes. Our first stop was to find the freshest pair of new walking shoes for non other than me. I have flat feet and doing so many activities with the kids has me worn out by the end of the day. The sales dudes at Champs Sports were out of this world helpful and he helped me find the coolest Nike’s I’ve ever owned. Valentine’s Day for me is a walk on comfortable lighter than air Nikes. Do you have a lover of shoes at home? Then you need to check out Champs Sports at Victoria Gardens.
Candy, Candy, Candy
Perhaps every child’s heaven, It’Sugar was the mecca of all things candy. Inside the candy coated walls of It’Sugar you can find giant versions of your favorite candy like gummy bears, lollipops and nerds. My favorite Valentine’s Day gift find was the “Let me ask my wife” mug from It’Sugar – it’s perfect for the husband with a sense of humor. If you have a sweet tooth Valentine at home you must stop in It’Sugar for a one-of-a-kind candy treat!
Who doesn’t love a nice quiet bath every now and then? Us hardworking moms sure love them. LUSH fresh handmade cosmetics is the best shop to stop into to really lavish your Valentine. All of their products are made from fresh organic fruits and vegetables, the finest essential oils and safe synthetics. Stepping into LUSH is like stepping into an aromatic heaven!
Girly Girls Like Girly Stuff
My girls are all about bright and shiny things right now. The shinier, the more dangly and the more colorful the better. When we stopped into The Children’s Place my almost 2 year old daughter nearly fainted. I could see her face light up and her eyes sparkly as she eye’d the dangly necklaces and bracelets. My 3 year old son was all about the cool shirts and mesh shorts and I loved the huge selection of affordable clothing. Do you have a girly girl Valentine at home? Then you have to check out Children’s Place for the cutest Valentine’s Day gifts.
