Christmas is the season for spending quality time with family and best of all spreading merry cheer through gifting. It is the time of the year when loved ones get together for dinners, visit the grandparents and take time away from the city to unwind.

No other shopping mall in Kenya embodies the Christmas spirit better than the Westgate Shopping Mall. It is Nairobi's premier shopping mall located in Westlands along Mwanzi Road. The mall boasts more than 80 stores, with a dizzying variety of services.

Westgate Shopping Mall has the family at heart making it more than a mall. It has a wide range of activities available for all; from a world-class gym with an indoor heated pool, to multiple high-end stores such as Lacoste, Mango, Boss, Puma, Women's Secret, Pretty Ballerinas and many more.
