Christmas at Scarborough Town Centre! 🎅🏼🎄✨
Okay - full disclosure - I am a *major* Christmas junkie! Like, I love it. The Christmas carols, the silly movies (hello, Elf every other day), the decorations, and even the shopping. And now that I’m a mama, it’s a million times more fun being able to share the excitement with my munchkin!!
Scarborough Town Centre has done something really smart this year - and that is creating a really unique Santa experience for the kids (and kind of for us too 😉)! Santa’s Secret Workshop is a one-on-one Santa experience, where you can book an appointment, skip the lines, and visit Santa in his very own workshop with your family!
When you arrive for your appointment, Santa’s elves greet you, and they ask mom or dad some questions about your little. Then, when you go in to meet Santa, he already knows their names and favourite things! Talk about magical. Milo was still a little young to understand this, but I can imagine a slightly older child being SUPER excited that Santa knows all about them. ❤️
Santa’s workshop had a fireplace, a magical toy chest that opened all by itself, a work station and lots of toys!! And the whole time we were visiting, Santa’s elf was taking photos! I love these candid shots.
At Santa’s workshop they allow you to bring your own camera or phone, so you can take as many snaps as you want, but they also take photos for you, and email them to you after your visit! I love this because it’s a little more personal, and you get so many options for sending to friends and family!
As a busy parent, I really appreciate this option, as opposed to waiting in line all day for only 2 minutes of Santa time. Santa’s Secret Workshop will be open until Dec. 24th, and you can book your appointment here!
Another exciting event happening at Scarborough Town Centre this season is their Secret Garden Holiday MRKT!
The MRKT is a unique shopping experience featuring 12 local vendors, offering many handmade and one-of-a-kind items!
When you enter the MRKT, you are transported into a beautiful secret garden, with hanging florals and a very Instagrammable little spot to take a break from all your shopping! 😉
The great thing about the MRKT is that it’s indoors, inside the mall - so you can take your time picking out the perfect gifts! No frostbite! 😉⛄️
The vendors feature everything from jewelry, to sweet treats, to shoes, makeup and much more, so there really is something for everyone on your list!
I loved the pretty little pieces from Girl Love Fund - lots of trendy gold and rose gold jewels, and a portion of her proceeds go to supporting programs for girls’ empowerment, which I think is such a great initiative!!
