Christmas Shopping Convenience Thanks to RBC Avion

Though the gifts seem to be the primary focus of Christmas time for kids, as time passes, the memories of those toys fade along with their relevance. What remains so very much ingrained in me are the experiences we had with my mom. The memories evoke such immense feelings of joy and excitement, I can’t even begin to tell you! I really am a big kid at heart. This Christmas, my little family and I will make our circuit through some of my favourites. First stop for us will be Coquitlam Centre. It was the place I got all of my pictures with Santa done and was convinced was the one place the real Santa could be found (outside of the North Pole, of course).


Despite my nostalgic pull to this mall, going during holiday season with a 17 month-old and a 2.5 year old is no easy feat. Thankfully, RBC Avion Boutique has come up with some pretty awesome perks to make anyone’s shopping experience so much easier and so much more pleasant!

Starting today, RBC Avion cardholders can enjoy the following services as a thank you for their business:
  • Valet parking
  • Coat and parcel check
  • VIP lounge and café
  • Concierge services
  • Gift wrapping

These services are also available to the general public for a nominal fee.

For those outside of Metro Vancouver, RBC Avion Holiday Boutiques are also available to cardholders in Halifax, NS at Halifax Shopping Centre, Yorkdale Shopping Centre in North York, Ontario, and Square One Shopping Centre in Mississauga, Ontario.

My little ones and I will be heading out to review these services some time next week. So, stay tuned for our review!

Happy shopping to all of you!

What are some ways you are gearing up for the holiday season? Please share below.

  1. Valet parking would be nice, especially when the weather is bad. I just started my holiday shopping and try to buy for about three to four people a week until I’m done. I do most of my shopping online. Looking forward to your review.

    1. Thank you so much, Melissa! I agree valet is soooo nice! Good for you for being so on top of it! I have yet to start my shopping…

  2. Oh, yes! Valet parking would be pretty handy! As well as the gift wrapping. Im looking forward to making memories with my kiddos meeting Santa. So far, they have not been impressed-we’ll see about this year.

    1. I’m looking forward to the same, but am worried about How Santa will go down too… Can’t wait to see your photos 🙂
