Shopping for gifts is one thing; wrapping each individual item in a way that impresses your giftee is something else entirely.
Let’s face it, nobody wants to give a gift to someone that looks like it was wrapped by their dog. Thankfully, you can leave it to the experts this season (phew).
From Saturday, December 7 to Tuesday, December 24, Cadillac Fairview is running a pop-up Gift Wrap Valet service at CF Pacific Centre and CF Richmond Centre where you can drop off all of the items you need to be wrapped.
Now doesn’t this make the holiday season seem a lot less stressful? We thought so.
Making the most of a valet service when you’re staying at a hotel is the height of luxury, and you can expect the same standard of excellence at the CF Gift Wrap Valet. It’s super convenient and you can choose between holiday-theme wrapping paper styles too.
If you’re like most of us last-minute shoppers (we’re in it together!), you could even visit your nearest CF shopping centre, buy the gifts on your list, and head straight to the valet. A Gift Concierge Host (GCH) will greet you when you arrive and ask you for your wrapping preferences.
The GCH will take you through the registration process and gift paper/box selection on a touchscreen device, and you’ll be given a receipt. So, if you feel like shopping for yourself during this time, you can easily do that (new winter boots, anyone?) and have a text sent to you when your items are ready for pick up.
Pricing varies depending on the size of the item to be wrapped. However, even if you have 10 gifts that you want to be transformed into works of art, you can feel good about it because a portion of the proceeds will be going to WE Charity — CF’s national partner in supporting youth empowerment.
When it comes to buying gift tags ($2 each) and WE’s rafiki bracelets, 100% of the proceeds from sales will support WE’s Canadian initiatives.
The CF Gift Wrap Valet also features an exclusive lounge where you can relax and let the reality sink in that you don’t have to do any gift wrapping, all while you wait for your items to be glammed up.
This year, CF is pleased to partner with RBC Avion at CF Richmond Centre to provide RBC-sponsored Gift Wrap Valet experiences and special perks for RBC Avion cardholders.
So what are you waiting for? Visit your nearest Cadillac Fairview shopping centre and get ready to add some festive cheer to your life this holiday season.
