Christmas is just around the corner and I couldn’t be happier! It is one of my favorites times of the year. And one of the things I love to do is get Christmas gifts for my friends and family. It makes me so happy getting things for others and trying to figure out what they will like. But we all know how busy the mall gets during the holidays right? The thing I like the least is having to carry my big winter coat and all my shopping bags around the mall while trying not to leave anything behind. And parking at the mall can also be another stressful moment.
But for Avioners in the Greater Toronto Area, I recommend you go to Yorkdale Shopping Centre, and visit the Avion Holiday Boutique. I promise it can’t get any better!
You might be wondering what the Avion Boutique is all about. It’s RBC’s way thanking its Avion cardholders by making their holiday shopping much more enjoyable. Some of the exclusive and complimentary services they provide include:
- Access to the VIP Lounge and Cafe
- Professional Gift Wrapping
- Coat and Parcel Check
- Concierge Services
- Valet Parking (how cool is that you don’t have to worry about finding a spot, or trying to remember where you parked while carrying all your heavy shopping?! Am I the only one that can never remember where I parked? LOL!)
- Porter service (they carry your gifts to the exit when you’re done for the day, isn’t this super glamourous? You don’t need to be Angelina Jolie to get this service!)
- Avion Passport App, which maximizes your boutique experience and provides access to RBC Rewards and partner offers.
The Boutique is not only a super relaxing spot but it gives you all the Christmas feels. When I went in, I was honestly amazed at how pretty the space is.
One of my favorite things of the boutique is the gift wrapping section. You will arrive home and nobody will know what you got them so you won’t even have to worry about hiding the gifts. And let me tell you the gift packaging is so beautiful and elegant that you won’t even want to open the gifts when the time comes!
While they wrap your shopping, you can either continue your shopping or just chill in the VIP lounge, have some coffee, some snacks, read a magazine or maybe even catch some live musical performances. You can also immerse yourself in a virtual reality experience. I chose the beach experience and now I am even dreaming more of my trip down South coming up!
You can also stop by the VIP lounge to take a few breaks here and there from all the shopping, because let’s be real, it’s impossible to shop for hours without finding an excuse to sit down, unless you are superwoman! Can’t wait to take my mum shopping and go together to the VIP lounge for a break.
What do you think of this VIP shopping experience? Let me know in the comments below!
Wishing you all a wonderful holiday season!
