How to Phone in the Holidays in Calgary

Phoning it in doesn’t have to be a negative thing. Make Christmas merrier by picking up the phone and outsourcing the hard work.

Phone in Your Christmas Shopping

Nordstrom at CF Chinook Centre offers curbside pick-up. Just call or text the service experience team at 403-921-5706, let them know what you want to buy and confirm which door you’ll be at. They will then walk your purchases out to your car.

 

Phone in Christmas Dinner

For the full-meal deal that you just reheat, pre-order a prepared Christmas dinner with all the fixings from Sunterra. They’ll even deliver it! If you have a crowd they also do full catered meal packages. If you want the taste of turkey dinner, but even less hassle, order the turkey dinner pie and a pumpkin pie for dessert from Pie Junkie.

 

Phone in Your Holiday Party

Calgary has many party-planning and rental services that will bring the party to you, but if you want even less work, reserve a room or a table at a Calgary restaurant for your celebration. Most corporate parties are wrapped up by the middle of the month, leaving you time to make a reservation for you and your nearest and dearest. Go as lavish as you want — book the whole place and offer an open bar or keep it simple and have it be pay as you go (just make it clear to your guests from the outset which it is). The point is simply to get together and ring in the season.
