7 Vancouver Businesses that Make the Holidays Less Hectic

The Holidays are officially upon us. And you’re not ready.

Don’t panic though.

Enlisting support isn’t only one of the smartest moves you can make, thanks to these local businesses, it’s also one of the easiest.

Here are seven Vancouver companies that we guarantee will make your holiday season less hectic.

Light Knights
Is your home not looking festive at all? Don’t even own a ladder? Light Knight’s team will take care of everything for you to make sure your home is twinkling once dusk falls. Own a business? They’ll even come there to make sure all your customers feel the festive season. No one will ever know you didn’t hang those lights yourself…

Nothing can be scarier than attempting to find a parking spot at this time of year. Ditch your car, hop on the Skytrain, and head over to pick up a Car2Go. Convenient parking spots specifically designated for the blue-and-white Smart cars mean popping in and out of places around town will save you time and a whole lot of energy.

Clean Club
This is probably one of the best ways to maximize your time especially if you’re playing host this holiday season. While you’re out shopping for gifts, entrust in Clean Club to leave your home sparkling. A simple notification on your phone lets you know when your place is ready. And adding on a la carte services is just as easy – just in case, you know, there’s a pile of laundry that needs attention.

Amazon.ca Same-Day
Recently launching same-day delivery in Vancouver, you can pick from thousands of eligible gifts and get them in time right until the very last minute. It’s a much better option than wishing for Santa Claus to be real. Just remember to place your order by noon to make sure that blender, headphones or yoga mat shows up on your doorstep.   

Independent Hair & Make-Up Artists
Mobile beauty saviors like Chris Funk and Jag Dhahan are there for you when it comes to getting glam for all the upcoming festivities. A blow out and smoky eyes can happen right in the comfort of your own home for roughly the same cost of going to a salon – you save time, might discover a new product or two, and look just as great for the office holiday party or New Year’s Eve.

A Good Cause Gift Wrapper
The Canadian Mental Health Association is Wrapping Up Hope again this year at the Hudson’s Bay Vancouver Downtown. The gift-wrapping station is one of their biggest fundraisers of the year and seeking a little support not only saves you time, it also really helps those in need. For 2014, proceeds will specifically benefit their Child and Youth sector’s Pandemonium: Youth With Anxiety Program. 

Travelling Gourmet
The big turkey day is here. You can’t master your way around boiling water, let alone the meal of the year. Luckily, Travelling Gourmet’s services include everything from the Personal Chef (even the grocery shopping is taken care of), to the Invisible Chef who slips away before the guests even arrive. And yes, they can take care of the clean up too.
