- Letters to Santa – Now through December 15, 2020! Bring your kiddos in anytime between now and December 15th to write a letter to Santa! Santa has told us he’s using Wister’s as his letter writing headquarters this year and will be responding to all letters left in our sweet Ivy’s mailing bag so be sure to include a mailing address for your child’s letter from Santa!
- Kid’s Shopping Day at Wister’s December 5. We will have a very special display of items. Bring your sweet kiddos to Wister’s all day on December 5th to shop for all the special friends and family in their life! You can just browse the shop and relax while we help them do their shopping. We’ll have tables set up with $10 and under gifts, $25 and under gifts, and pre-wrapped gifts that all the special people in their lives deserve! (Psst.. Mamas, if you make a wishlist, we’ll point them in the right direction!). If there is a new baby sibling in the family, we’ll have some very special gift ideas for him or her too. We’ll help the kids wrap their gifts – and then they’ll sneak them under the tree until Christmas morning! What fun!
- Downtown Holiday Open House. It’s Downtown South Boston’s big day on Sunday, November 22nd so join the fun! A fun time with Christmas decorations along the street, seasonal music, a fun ‘parade’, and multiple locations where Santa will visit. And all downtown stores are open from 1pm-5pm with lots of holiday fun! Visit us at Wister’s to see our fabulous white Christmas tree and lots of other holiday decor and plenty of gift ideas. And we’re so excited to debut handcrafted items from several local artists including jewelry, macrame, paintings, and so much more. We LOVE supporting our local artisans and we know you’ll love their beautiful creations!
- Gift Wrapping! Let us handle your gift wrapping this year! This Sunday’s Christmas Open House downtown is the perfect time to drop them off. Shop around and come back to pick them up! Not an early shopper? You can drop off your gifts all season long, until December 19th!
- Gingerbread Decorating. Purchase one of our fun gingerbread kits to enter our gingerbread house contest – or just to have some fun with your family! We can’t wait to see what y’all make with them!.
- Tinsel is in the house! Tinsel, Wister’s resident ‘elf’, is being a little sassy pants and already getting into mischief in the shop! She’ll be getting into mischief on the floor in just over a week and will be carrying some surprise discounts and gifts each day. Be the first to find her hiding and you’ll get a fun surprise!
- First Annual Wister’s Holiday Fête Friends & Family Night. Join us for a fun-filled evening on Friday, November 13 to kick off the holiday season with some of our extremely talented local artists! Your $5 ticket for Friday reserves your time slot, and you’ll be entered in a raffle for a fun surprise gift! Click here to purchase tickets while they last. The fun continues on Saturday, November 14 (no ticket required) so as you’re shopping you can browse the local artist offerings too – maybe you’ll find the perfect gift from their creative talents!
- Thanksgiving Centerpieces – Yay! It’s that time of year again. Time to preorder your Thanksgiving centerpiece to display for your guests and family! Thanksgiving centerpieces will be a mix of seasonal blooms and foliage in shades of orange, red, burgundy, yellow, and cream. Choose from one of our signature arrangements in our chosen vase, or an arrangement in a fresh pumpkin! Pickup on Tuesday, November 24th for Thanksgiving!
- Winter Wonderland Floral Workshop .We are so excited to host a fun, seasonal workshop this holiday season (safely, of course!). This workshop will be held on Friday, December 11 at 6pm. In order to ensure everyone stays safe and healthy, we have limited this workshop to 12 guests. A face mask is required for the entire duration of the workshop. We will have drinks and snacks, and we’ll teach you how to create a garden-style flower arrangement that you can take home and display for your holiday season! You’ll learn tricks and secrets that I use in almost all my flower arrangements, as well as how to keep flowers fresh longer.
- Holiday wreaths – As fresh and beautiful as they are aromatic! Smells of pine and cedar and more – wreaths sell out early every year, so we highly recommend preordering. Because we offer garden-style designs, no two wreaths are exactly alike, which is the beauty of it! Wreaths are available for pickup beginning December 4th so schedule your order and pick-up when you’re ready.
- Seasonal Bouquet Club. Wister’s is so excited to announce our new Seasonal Bouquet Club. This subscription service allows you to consistently have blooms in your home, office, or restaurant to brighten your day and the day of everyone else who stops by. And it’s a great Christmas gift that keeps on giving. You may also love our Vase of the Month subscription which is a bouquet of flowers expertly arranged in one of our newest vases each month!
- Wister’s Happy Box is here ! Each quarter, receive a box full of surprise goodies to brighten your day. Subscription boxes can be picked up at the shop OR….(drum roll, please!) we can SHIP THEM ANYWHERE IN THE U.S.! Even better? Shipping is included. Subscription boxes are available for pickup or will ship in December, March, June, and September. Your subscription begins the quarter right after you sign up and we also have them available for children too!
We are adding more fun events and specials throughout the coming months so visit our shop often. And let us know if there’s something we can help you find – our little elves are always on the lookout for new ideas for the shop! Just email us at email@example.com with your requests and ideas.
