Come December, and all that comes in our mind is curling up in our beds, having hot chocolate, Christmas and the run-up to the New Year. For us, it becomes all the more exciting because January is Zuzu’s birthday month.

It is also a very good time in Delhi as the season is just perfect for evening strolls and gives us a reason to replace the summer wardrobe with colorful pullovers, scarves, and not to forget uber stylish knee-high boots.

Ask any person living in Delhi, what’s the best part about the place, Winters will always be the answer!

Mostly all of December passes by in planning for birthday decor theme, cake and countless other things related to it. So, if we had to put it in a correct way, the last month is one of the busiest months of the year for us .


Last Saturday we went to the DLF Mall of India for some of our birthday shopping. They say always reserve the best for the last and which is what DLF Mall of India had done. There is a super awesome #FuntasticFestival which has been going on since 14th of November.

All throughout the month, the mall will be buzzing with activities of a different kind. Some of these are meet and greet with the star cast of upcoming Bollywood movies, Black Friday Sales, special movie screening for kids and also Christmas flea markets!


An outing to the DLF Mall of India is incomplete without a Hamleys store visit. In fact, sometimes we spend so much time at Hamleys sometime, that we tend to miss out on buying a product for which we specifically we came to the mall.

This time around there were different activities which were happening at the Hamleys store. Among these were ‘Write a Letter to Santa’,’Dance along with Santa and a lot many activities around the same theme.

So like our customary ritual, we spent almost near to three hours at Hamleys this time around. The store was buzzing with festive feels. Also because it was just two days prior to Christmas, the entire floor was occupied by parents and kids who were making the most of the amazing sale.

Zuzu also met my friend’s kids who were also there at Hamleys, and the kids had a ball of a time.

On the ground floor, a huge Christmas installation was also out up by Hamleys. There were parents and their children who were clicking selfies in front of this installation, all in the excitement of uploading their best pictures on social media.


After our store visit to Hamleys, we headed out for some shopping for my daughter’s birthday. Most of the kids’ apparel brands are on the top floor of this mall. As many as 9 out of 10 stores were running a Christmas sale and a plethora of discounts up to 50% which couldn’t be missed at any cost.

What I most love about DLF Mall is that it houses different categories on separate floors. For example, Indian ethnic is on the second floor, western fashion wear is spread across the first floor and all the brands which house kid’s apparel are on the third floor. This makes shopping very easy and convenient and thus makes it better than the rest of the malls in the city.

For the past two years, my daughter has been wearing dresses from One Friday World on her birthday. So naturally, it makes it our favorite brand among the others. We grabbed a couple of pieces from this store and then had a delicious lunch at Pizza Express.

It was a great experience for us at DLF Mall of India. The best part is that this place is located just 7 km from our place and is also well connected to South Delhi via the DND bridge.

So head on over to DLF mall of India, The End of season sale is ON at DLF Mall of India and most brands are on 50% off. See you there.
