It’s not Christmas without a little mistletoe.
At least that’s what the Yaletown Business Improvement Association thinks, which is why it’s hosting the annual Kissmas celebration. The streets of Yaletown will be peppered with mistletoe kissing stations, so you and your special someone can snap a romantic holiday photo.
Kissmas week will be going on from December 12 to 16, but kissing isn’t the only reason you should be heading down to Yaletown. Kissmas is also a great reason to drag your significant other along for some last minute shopping.
Yaletown stores are what set it apart from other Vancouver areas, and they’re also getting into the holiday spirit. Enjoy browsing through unique boutiques and specialty shops that are perfect for holiday gifts.
If you’re looking for a treasure chest of lifestyle and quality, then you’ll want to go to Moulé. There are four stores across Canada and the United States, and each has a unique look and feel that is inspired by family history and the city’s culture.
Step inside a store that looks like someone’s personal, fashionable closet. Instead of offering specific designers, Woo to See You picks out individual items to give the merchandise a cohesive feel. The store buys things in small amounts, and constant rotates in new clothing, jewelry, accessories, and other lifestyle goods.
You may go there for the shoes, but you won’t just be buying shoes. This store offers hand selected shoes, dresses, bathing suits, bags, and accessories so you can find exactly what you need – whether it’s for a day at work or a night on the town.
If you’re looking for local Canadian beauty products, and a place that will help you decide how to wear them, then BeautyMark is your shop. The store offers cruelty-free, natural products, and provides beauty treatements, holiday party makeup applications, and complimentary eyelash applicaions.
Fine Finds has a little bit of everything. They support local designers and companies, offering jewelry, handbags, clothing and hairpieces you’re guaranteed to love. Plus, the Georgia Straight has called it the Best Gift Store in Vancouver for nine years in a row, so that has to count for something.
Brooklyn is the place to go for fashionable Vancouver men. The Yaletown boutique specializes in denimwear, footwear, accessories, and grooming products – and they emphasize brands sourced and produced in North America, so buying from there means you’re helping out Canadian and American companies
If a little bit of everything is what you need, then Revolucion is where you go. This Canadian Lifestyle store is a purveyor of exquisitely-crafted jewelry, fragrances, and classic shaving tools. It features some of the world’s market-leading products in men’s lifestyle, so there’s bound to be something a man will want.
Many of the stores are also offering holiday hours, opening around 10 or 11 am and closing between 7 and 8 pm.
