How to Have a Stress Free Holiday Shopping Experience

How to Have a Stress Free Holiday Shopping Experience

On Friday night I went shopping with Emily for some snow pants downtown. I honestly don’t know what I was thinking because like,

  1. 1) it was Black Friday,
  2. 2) I couldn’t find a park,
  3. 3) it was annoying carrying stuff.

I should have gone to Yorkdale.

I tested out RBC’s Avion Holiday Boutique before it opened the other day and they’ve really put some thought into making your trip to Yorkdale a pleasant one. RBC Avioners get complimentary valet, coat check, parcel check, snacks, drinks, gift wrapping, and a nice spot to be chill at. You can also test out their new VR Experience.


Once you’ve left the car with Yorkdale Valet, waltz into the Avion Holiday Boutique, and check your coat. Grab a coffee, water, and sit down in a white leather chair, with a cold cucumber infused water, and delicious cookie. [Same cookies they have on Porter Airlines!] Scroll your list using free wifi and make a plan.

Look for the RBC Avion Holiday Boutique across from Pottery Barn at Yorkdale

Sometimes when I’m out and about all I want is to sit down, collect my thoughts, and have a glass of water. Y’know?!

This cheese spread was at the launch event, there will be other snacks there when you go!

Before leaving the boutique, go on a 2minute beach vacation via VR. It’s really quite amazing how the sights and sounds of the beach will calm you down. 

Take your experience next level by downloading the Avion Passport App (text “AVION” to 722722 or search in app store).

In the app you get exclusive offers, faster gift wrapping services at the RBC Avion Boutique,  and you can text valet to bring the car around,  🙋


Thanks RBC for inviting me to be a partner and share this experience.

Great job on the RBC Avion Boutique! For info about getting yourself on the RBC Avion VIP train, visit this link. The card is packed with travel rewards and you can use now your RBC Rewards at Best Buy and the Apple Store. Read that blog post here! 

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
