Now that we’ve packed away the pumpkins and turned back the clocks, the highly anticipated holiday season can officially begin. It’s no secret that December is all about giving, and while it’s easy to get wrapped up in expensive gifts to impress your loved ones, it’s important to remember that this season is also about giving to those who need it most. That’s why every year, we host our Coats for Kids charity event, and this year is no exception.
Now in its sixth year, we’re switching things up and inviting everyone to join us on Friday, December 2nd from 4-8pm. We’ll be serving complimentary wine and delicious eats, perfect to pregame before your next Holiday party! All you have to do is bring coats, toys, and/or monetary donations that will go directly to children in our community.
coats for kids
Coats for Kids is a United Way initiative that began in 1992 due to overwhelming requests from families who were in need of winter jackets. As our city’s real estate has reached all-time highs, many families have a difficult time affording living expenses and simply don’t have the means to purchase the clothing needed to stay warm. That’s why we host this event every year, as a simple coat can go a long way in a child’s development.

Though you may still be munching on your stockpile of Halloween candy, the mania of the holiday season is underway. Just take a walk through Pacific Centre or scroll through Twitter and you’ll find the Christmas buzz is in full swing!
If this time of year has always brought stress rather than joy, vow to make this holiday season different. Relinquish the pressure to find the “perfect gift” or make “the perfect dinner”, and instead vow to take part in what December is really about: giving back.

Finding that perfect present is a daunting task, especially if you’re shopping for someone that literally has everything. Clothes and jewelry may seem like an easy way out, but knowing the right size, fit, brand, and colour can be full of second guessing and stress.

gift cards

That’s why a gift card to Urban Body Laser are a no-brainer. No matter what age or sex you are, we really do have something for everyone. Though we are best known for our laser hair removal, we offer a variety of services and products that suits everyone’s needs.

So what Will an Urban Body Laser Gift Card Get You?

Are they always complaining about discoloured skin, freckles, or sunspots? Have they ever mentioned that they want to improve their complexion and even their skin’s texture? We have a number of services they can choose from, like our Photojuvenation and Microdermabrasion systems. These are fast, effective, and painless.

January is also a great time for them to start laser hair removal treatments. Since it takes a few appointments to remove stages of hair growth, they’ll be smooth and silky by the time summer comes along.

Does she love make-up? Spend hours in the bathroom ensuring she’s moisturized every last surface of her face? A gift card will get her far at Urban Body Laser! Not only do we have medical estheticians that can recommend the best products for her, we also have an online store where she can peruse the items herself, no matter where she is in the world!

From anti-aging to sun protection, these lines offer gentle yet effective products for everyone, no matter what their skin condition or age may be.

The holiday season can seem like a blur. One second you’re decorating the tree, then the next you’re ringing in the New Year. During the whirlwind of parties, dinners, shopping, and family events, taking a moment to reflect on all you have to be thankful for may be the furthest thing from your mind.

gratitude

As we’re now in the midst of December, we asked the Urban Body Laser team to put together a list of things they are truly grateful for. From work to family, even the littlest things are a reminder that so many people out there have much less than we do. We hope this will inspire you to put together your own gratitude list!
