Giving Great Gifts
Published Nov 22 2018 in gift
‘Tis the season... to stress about finding that certain something for every special someone! Fear not, because Cherry Velvet is here to help.
Gift Certificates – Always a Fit
Very few can resist the joy of shopping! Cherry Velvet would be delighted to create a voucher in whatever denomination works for your budget. That way, your daughter can pick out exactly what she wants either online or at our studio, and you don’t have to worry about sizing or returns.
Barefoot Venus – Bath and Body Bliss
We’ve recently added Barefoot Venus to the Cherry Velvet family. These deliciously-scented skin care products are made by three beautiful BC sisters, and their gorgeous package design makes them extremely gift-worthy. Say thanks to a teacher or coach, or keep a set on hand for when you get that unexpected dinner invite – any hostess would be delighted with a treat from Barefoot Venus!
Retro Jewelry – Bling for the Win
When you see our dresses via our website, on social media, or in an email, you’ll notice that our models are often wearing lovely necklaces and earrings. We love the retro-style pieces made right here in Vancouver by Mirror Mirror Bijoux, and we think they’re a perfect match for Cherry Velvet’s vintage-inspired look. That’s why we sell this jewelry on our website. Choose a special piece for your mom and watch her eyes sparkle when she opens the box!
Erstwilder Brooches – Unique and Sweet
Brooches add wonderful whimsy to plain cardigans and jackets, and Erstwilder makes delightful designs in bright resin. The charm and personality of these pieces makes each one a wonderful gift, and they come boxed with custom stories. Whether your sister loves cowboy boots, fairies, or cherry blossoms, an Erstwilder brooch could be the present with just the right personal touch.
Men's Shirts – Style for Your Guy
Don't forget that Cherry Velvet has an exclusive collection of men's wear. Funky fabrics in a classic fit make these button-ups anything but ordinary. Tell your husband to prepare for compliments when he wears one of these great garments!
Dresses... as Gifts?
Buying clothing as a present can be a bit of a gamble, but if you have a devoted Cherry Velvet fan in your life, you might be able to limit the risk factor. We stock favourite styles in many fabulous fabrics, and we’re happy to look into a customer’s ordering history to help you with a surprise. For example, if we can figure out that your bestie has a Norma dress in 0X, and you know that she loves red roses, then buying her the Norma in Midnight Beauty could be the best gift ever!
Shipping and Wrapping – Finishing Touches
Let us know if you’re purchasing an item as a gift and you’d like it sent directly to the recipient. We’ll exclude the invoice from the packaging, and do what we can to make the packaging special.
We hope everyone’s holiday season is off to a sensational start. As always, get in touch with us via email or social media if we can help with any order!

Barefoot Venus Bath & Body Joins the Cherry Velvet Line-up
Published Nov 09 2018 in Barefoot Venus, bath & body, gift
We’re excited to bring Canadian-made skin care to our website and showroom: please join us in welcoming Barefoot Venus to the Cherry Velvet world!
If you’ve been to our Studio Shop, you may have used the divine-smelling hand soap in our washroom or noticed its gorgeous vintage-themed packaging. Well, it’s made by Barefoot Venus, and we loved their products and philosophy so much that we wanted to give our customers the opportunity to discover and enjoy it.
Barefoot Venus crafts bath and body indulgences in Kelowna, BC, Canada. There’s a lot to appreciate about this company. First of all, as proud Canadians, we look for ways to support others who make their products in our home and native land. We’re all about women supporting women, and Barefoot Venus is run by three lovely sisters. We also are very aware of what we put on our skin, and this skin care uses natural ingredients – no paraben, propylene glycol, or synthetic colours. These soaps and lotions smell and feel wonderful, and are beautifully packaged with colourful graphics that speak to our retro-inspired souls.
We’ll be selling a variety of gift sets on our website, with other delights available in our studio. With scents like Maple Blondie, Coconut Kiss, and Ruby Red, these treats are perfect holiday presents and stocking stuffers. Keep one on hand this December, just in case you suddenly need a hostess gift! Of course, we all need to practice a little self-care around Christmas, so why not indulge yourself with some Canadian-made bath and body bliss?
