The magic of the holiday season is upon us and I am drawn to ALL THE FESTIVE THINGS. Red cups? Sign me up. Mailing Santa’s letters. Check. Buying gifts for those I love. DOUBLE CHECK. That’s why I like to shop at places that get me, that appreciate my need for lots of jolly mixed in with the holly. That’s why I love the Rideau Centre. It’s been a holiday shopping destination year after year for me and I’m so happy to share that this year they’re are bringing the Magic Gift Workshop to Ottawa!
Only two Cadillac-Fairview malls in Canada—Laval and Ottawa— will have the Magic Gift Workshop. I’m so excited to share this unique experience with my children this holiday season!
Every year my kids save their money to buy gifts for those they love at Christmas. We traditionally make it a fun day out at the Rideau Centre where we cross off all the items on our list in one shop-til-we-drop trip. This year though, something magical awaits them.
The Magic Gift Workshop will introduce my girls, and shoppers across Ottawa, to the Tufties, a new kind of holiday helper. For what it’s worth, I expect the Tufties will put our Elf on the Shelf to shame, but I digress. The Tufties are furry, loveable creatures that are here to help. Enter their magical space at Rideau Centre and watch your gifts magically transformed in front of your eyes!

Interactive from the beginning, shoppers will be immersed into a shimmering starry night environment, watching through viewing stations as The Tufties wrap, decorate and prepare their gift. In the last station, shoppers will be treated to a fully animated experience which will illuminate their freshly wrapped gift. Family and friends on the outside of the structure will be able to enjoy a fun video of The Tufties at play, so as not to miss out on the experience.
This unique, interactive experience is unlike any gift wrapping experience you’ve had before and is perfect for children! I’m positive my kids are going to love this, almost as much as I L-O-V-E the Rideau Centre for all it’s amazing stores. Le sigh. How do I love thee Rideau Centre? Let me count the ways—Apple, Aritizia, Banana Republic, J.Crew, Hudson’s Bay, L’Occitane and Sephora to name but a few.
So go on and get your merry and bright on in a big way Ottawa by reserving your spot now to visit this magical workshop between November 27th and December 24th. Follow @CFRideauCentre for fun updates throughout the holiday season!
