Happy holidays!! With only 2 short weeks to go until Christmas arrives, it’s now or never to get those gifts you’ve been meaning to pick up for the loves on your list. I wanted to introduce you to the giovane market, located in the lobby lounge at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel in Vancouver. The giovane market is a boutique shop offering brands like Kate Spade, Moleskin, Rifle Paper, Gentleman’s Hardware, Design Love Co., Olive + Piper, Voluspa, + many more! It really is the perfect space to grab a coffee and a fresh pastry and browse all their amazing, unique gifts for the holidays. I should mention they also offer pre-packaged gift boxes, or you can create a custom box of your choice. For more info please visit here.

To get you started on a little gift-giving, we’ve got a little surprise in store for you!  Scroll down for more info…
