We all have them. You know, that one uncle you can never find the right gift for? Or the friend who buys you a fabulous gift every year while you feel the gift you are giving them is bland?
Christmas is stressful for a number of reasons, but the pressure of finding the right gift can be overwhelming.
The good news is that I can fill you in on the perfect spot to find the memorable gift you need. The Brika Pop-Up shop at Yorkdale has everything you have been looking for that you didn’t know you or someone else can’t live without.
I was unable attend one of their workshops at the pop up earlier in the month so I thought I’d swing by to see what the shop was all about. Turns out I didn’t want to leave.
They have some of the most unique gifts out there! I have shopped the Brika website before so I knew about the fabulous things it has to offer, but I had never seen it all in one place before.
I wanted two of everything – one as a gift for someone, and one for myself!
The Pop-Up includes a DIY corner with a colouring wall from Screech Owl Design. There is also a gift wrapping station where you can wrap the gifts you just bought. I loved this idea, and the wrapping materials were so pretty.
I loved that they carry Lovefresh products as well which smell amazing.
Makeful has sponsored an event space where weekly workshops are taking place, and it’s a very cool area to hang out! I’m so sad I missed the wreath making workshop I was invited to because I’m sure it was amazing.
There’s even a cafe! It services drinks, snacks, and baked good by Moo Milk Bar.
Artisans featured include Bizu Jewelry, Meera Lee Patel and Designed by Artists. One of the artists mi cielo was featured in my Holiday Gift Guide for Kids last week on the blog – I have to get my toddler one of their shirts with Mr. T on them!
The Brika Pop-Up will be open at Yorkdale Shopping Centre until the end of January 2016, and you can also visit Brika online here.
