While it may be hard to imagine Christmas shopping in Fort Lauderdale, it actually is the ideal place. No, there will no snow flurries or trees bare of their leaves, nor a need to bundle up with coats, scarves, gloves and boots, but the holiday spirit is certainly in the air. So throw on some shorts and flip flops and a warm-weather shirt and start marking off that Christmas shopping list. We at 10best present ten of the area's finest, and sometimes quirky places that are ideal for holiday shopping. From the elegant and sophisticated Galleria with its stellar list of retailers such as Neiman-Marcus, Banana Republic, Williams-Sonoma and the Apple Stores, to the amazing Sawgrass Mills with discounted names such as Prada, Ralph Lauren and Barney's New York. Take in the famous Las Olas Boulevard with its upscale boutiques and shops and the spirit of the holidays in the air. Shopping malls are favorites, too, with Coral Ridge Mall in Fort Lauderdale and the Broward Mall in Plantation. And the quirky stop? It's the Swap Shop, just west on Sunrise Boulevard. This has everything from a farmer's market to a flea market and everything in between – including a drive-in theatre! Fort Lauderdale takes shopping seriously, so join in the fun!
