This season it’s all about adding a personal touch, from gifts to decorations; so we’ve opened our own festive workshop to offer that little something extra for a beautifully bespoke Christmas.
For four days throughout December - 1st, 2nd, 8th and 9th December - the charming Quadrant Arcade will be transformed into a ‘Customise Your Christmas’ hub where, courtesy of Regent Street, shoppers can enjoy incredible complimentary services to make their presents truly stand out under the Christmas tree.
From exclusive bauble-making workshops, to bespoke gift wrapping service, monogramming and a fun photo booth, there’s something for everyone in the hub to truly bring the Spirit of Christmas to life.
Dressed with glittering Silver Birch trees, gilded mirrors and festive foliage, this chic winter workshop will be watched over by traditional Toy Soldiers and Sugar Plum Fairies, adding an extra touch of enchantment for visitors of all ages.
In the spirit of giving and goodwill, Regent Street will also continue to support London busiest homelessness charity The Connection with a gifting point in the hub for donations and unwanted clothing. We hope shoppers will give generously at this special time of year.
Read on for a full debrief on all the complimentary services on offer:
Bespoke ‘Regent Street’ Gift Wrap & Calligrapher Tags
