This Holiday season at Somerset Collection in Troy, Michigan there is a unique children’s only shopping experience that will make for memories to last a lifetime! For a small $5 donation to a local charity, children will be allowed to shop alone like adults for their loved ones inside a specially curated shop just for the kids.
Children are given 3 shiny coins with which they can pick out any 3 items from the shop. This specialty store for children is packed with an assortment of gift items which were donated by retailers from the Somerset Collection.
When the kids walk in they are given a shopping bag and 3 coins. From there they can peruse the tables and showcases for the gifts as they please. If the shoppers are too young to do this on their own they will be assisted by the associates through the shop. The adults are allowed to watch from afar but are to remain on the other side of the velvet rope to give the kids the truly special and memorable experience of shopping all by themselves like grownups.
There are a variety of men’s accessories, small jewelry items, nail polish, bath bombs, crafting supplies, LEGOs, small toys, play-doh, and many more cute knickknacks for the kids to buy for their loved ones. After they pick their gifts they are given a bit of wrapping or tissue paper and are escorted out to the waiting area with their parents.
My twin daughters were smiling from ear to ear after the whole experience and still a week later they won’t stop talking about it, so needless to say it was a wonderful and very memorable opportunity for the kids.
The children also have the chance to write a letter to Santa and put it in their festive mailbox before they leave. This children’s only shopping experience will continue to be open through Saturday, December 22, every day from 10AM-9PM and is located next to Macy’s on the 2nd floor of Somerset Mall.
Hi! I am a Muslim American-Bangladeshi wife and stay at home mommy of twin girls. I have a Bachelor’s of Science in Psychology from the University of Texas at Dallas. I moved to the Detroit area, more specifically Auburn Hills about a year and a half ago from Dallas, Texas and have been enjoying all that I can that the city has to offer. I love spending time with my two girls exposing them to various activities and fun to make them well rounded Muslim American Bangladeshis!
