Hi Friends and welcome back! Today we’re very excited to share with you the kick start of our 2021 Merivale Vision Care Holiday Gift Guide. We are so ready to bring on the holiday cheer all while supporting our wonderful local business friends, and this year we can truly shop in person which feels wonderful! Brew up your favourite festive beverage and grab a pen so you can get prepped for the holiday season. With Merivale Vision Care you can go into the festive period seeing your best and supporting local.
The first rule of holiday prep: while shopping in order to treat others, don’t forget to treat yourself. Give us a call to book your comprehensive eye exam with one of our fabulous Doctors of Optometry, and a glasses shopping appointment with one of our Opticians. Right now, just for you, our premium progressives are $100 off until the end of December! In addition to that, we are offering 50% off all prescription sunglasses lenses when you purchase a frame until the end of December. While you’re here taking care of your vision, you should tick off a few gifts on your list. We offer an array of beautiful non-prescription sunglasses from all sorts of designer brands. Our newest collection is the Celine line of sunwear and they are simply stunning. Our beautiful eyeglass cords make great stocking stuffers. Not only are they on-trend, they also help keep your glasses safe.
If there is someone in your life who just loves interiors, we highly suggest popping by LD Shoppe. The retail store of Leclair Décor (a husband and wife owned residential design firm) is the ultimate home décor destination. LD Shoppe’s stunning showroom is brimming with iconic coffee-table books, gorgeous warm modern furniture pieces, lust-worthy light fixtures, and market totes. Their stunning new linen collection, LD Linen, is not to be missed. Each piece in their new bedding collection is made using only the finest French flax linen. The entire collection is Oeko-Tex certified and sustainably made in a fair-trade environment. Imagine treating your loved ones to some buttery-soft delicious new bedding? Amazing.
If someone you plan to gift this holiday season loves beautiful textiles, Mini Tipi is your perfect local small shop stop. Owned by Mel and Trish and proudly Indigenous, you will find the perfect Canadian made textiles for your everyday adventures. Mini Tipi offers handmade accessories and home items for women, children, and babies such as blankets, scarves, shawls, bags, and mittens. This year we can’t decide between the Star Night Everyday Blanket and the Storm Eco Friendly Everyday Blanket, so we should probably just get both. The Cliff Upcycled Sherpa Mittens would make a brilliant keep-fingers-toasty stocking stuffer.
We can feel your excitement to pop in for your eye exam and new glasses! We look forward to hearing what you pick up while holiday shopping with these wonderful local businesses. Stay tuned for next week: Gift Guide Part Two!
