Forget about the usual stores, these limited-time-only pop-up shops are filled with holiday gift ideas.
1173 Robson Street December 14 to 2018Although its Gastown flagship is way bigger, the new Frank and Oak pop-up is all womenswear, all the time from its pint-sized 700-square-foot Robson Street perch. The minimalist Canadian brand first launched digitally then followed up with bricks-and-mortar outposts like this one that showcase its quiet, unstudied-cool kind of casual. frankandoak.com
Holt Renfrew, 737 Dunsmuir Street Now through March 5, 2018Delighting brides-to-be since 1837, Tiffany & Co.’s little blue boxes manage to stay timeless and classic yet always of-the-moment.
