Wondering where to go with your family this Christmas? Beverly Hills could be a definitive option. You definitely need a lot of fun time with the children and give them a memorable and enjoyable trip in the beautiful city of Beverly Hills. Being a World Class shopping destination, Beverly Hills has a lot to offer to you and your children as well.

Beverly Wilshire: Have breakfast at THE Blvd located at Beverly Wilshire, A Four Seasons Hotel where you’ll both enjoy their breakfast menu, which includes chocolate chip pancakes, cereal and French toast for the kids and omelettes, poached eggs and waffles for the adults. After your delicious meal, explore this hotel's stunning halls of original 1920s charm. You may recognize the setting from the beloved popular film, Pretty Woman.

Color Me Mine: After breakfast, walk to Color Me Mine where you can create a piece of art together. First, you’ll select a piece of pottery to paint from over 400 available options, like piggy banks, plates, mugs or flower pots. Once you’re finished, the Color Me Mine team will glaze your masterpiece and have it available for pickup in about three days.

Anthropologie: On your way back to the Golden Triangle, swing into Anthropologie for a bit of shopping for yourself. Anthropologie carries everything from dresses, blouses and active wear to shoes, bags and even items for home, such as furniture, decorative pillows and cookware.

BHLDN’s bridal shop: If you’re a parent of a little girl and really want to see your daughter’s eyes light up, take her up to the Mezzanine level where BHLDN’s bridal shop is located. With bridal gowns and bridesmaid dresses to earrings, headpieces and shoes, we guarantee she’ll love taking a peek at this boutique.

Auntie Barbara’s Kids: Now that you’ve shown them how to shop in Beverly Hills style, it’s your kids’ time to shine! Located walking distance from Anthropologie, Auntie Barbara’s Kids carries toys, accessories and clothes for children up to size 8 and will have your kids looking and feeling like a superstar in no time.

Il Fornaio: After all of the shopping and walking has built up an appetite, head to Il Fornaio on North Beverly Drive for lunch. Serving authentic Italian cuisine and offering al fresco dining with tables set outside, we’re certain the homemade pasta and pizza will hit the spot.

Tom’s Toys: Once you’ve finished your meal, walk to Tom’s Toys, on North Beverly Drive, where your kids can admire the dolls, board games, stuffed animals and other children’s favourites displayed in the store.

Beverly Gardens Park: After you’ve had a bit of fun playing at Tom’s, send the men to the nearby Beverly Gardens Park to click some amazing photographs in the picturesque location to spare some time for themselves from shopping and you stroll over to Olive & June for a side-by-side mother/daughter manicure. Your daughter will love the experience of selecting a color from the salon’s wall of over 350 nail polishes.

Beverly Hills Visitor Center: Once your nails have dried, walk to the Beverly Hills Visitor Center, where a friendly concierge will offer more tips on where to explore and how to get around. This is also the perfect chance for you to purchase a Beverly Hills souvenir to remember the special day. Before you go, remember to ask the concierge to take your photo in front of the famous Beverly Hills shield, just outside the Visitors Center!

The Witch's House: Ask the concierge to arrange for a taxi and take a trip to The Witch's House, also known as the Spadena House. Looking as if it was plucked straight out of a fairytale, this private home in a quiet, residential neighborhood stands out among its neighbors with its pointy, lopsided roof, small windows and stucco exterior.

Sprinkles Cupcakes: Have your cab then bring you back to the Golden Triangle and drop you off at the shop that started the global cupcake craze: Sprinkles Cupcakes. The Beverly Hills Sprinkles is home to a 24-hour cupcake ATM which plays a catchy song as it dispenses its famous cupcakes.

Catamini: Walk toward Rodeo Drive and stop into Catamini for one more shopping adventure. This trendy, Paris-based children’s clothing brand takes contemporary fashion and adapts it to fit the needs of today’s kids and their daily activities. With bright colors and fun prints, your kids will love this shopping experience in Beverly Hills.
