December is tomorrow! *gasp* For us that signals the time to buckle down, get serious about what we’ll buy for our nearest and dearest, and take the time to perfect our festive looks. Considering the retail mecca we live in, there are no shortage of options. Hit the mall with boxing gloves and fight the crowds, bundle up and go for a boutique stroll ( (we love to do this but it’s weather permitting), OR come check out Gifted & Glam: a holiday pop-up that brings the gems of the city, under one roof for you to shop!
On Saturday, December 11 & Sunday, December 12, Shop Socials is offering socialites the most civilized way to shop…no trust fund required! Gifted & Glam, our holiday pop-up held at The Great Hall (Queen W & Dovercourt), offers our signature hand-picked local luxe designers, brands and retailers who are high on style but so reasonable in price. You’ll gasp at gorgeous frocks, fabulous jewellery, canadian-made beauty, and other unique gifts perfect for the naughty or nice on your list.
Here are a few items to ogle:
Feathered Earrings, HartBoutique
Girlnola Organic & Vegan Treats
Sassy Party Looks from Bicyclette
Of course, we have to throw in a few posh extras just to make the days festive and bright. Enjoy complimentary sweet hot cocoa bar where you can pile the marshmallows high, swirl in a candy cane or just hit the chocolate ‘straight up’, and leave the baking to the pros in our bake shop and surprise your host or guests with delicious gourmet baked goods that you can sample and take home to enjoy.

Best of all, we’re pretty sure this is the ONLY pop-up in the city that gives you a gift (to keep or give), just for stopping in. No fine print or tricky details. Simply visit Gifted & Glam and register for a FREE six month membership to The Socialite Card ($30). Current members can get their membership extended to a full year OR pick up another membership to give as a gift. Gentleman, for once, we haven’t left you out either! You can snag a certificate for a complimentary 3 piece kit from the men’s natural skincare line, Bread & Butter ($35 value), just because we think you’re sweet to join your lady friend on her shopping exploits. Don’t forget to join our guest list for first dibs on the free goodies. Should quantities dwindle over the days, priority will be given to our guest list members.

We promise holiday shopping has NEVER been this fabulous or fun and we still have a few surprises up our ruffled sleeves to reveal. We’re still adding a few more great vendors but check out all the local luxe brands we’re already got on board on our website and see what they’ll be bringing on Facebook.
See You Next Weekend!
