Get ready to see some magic, Ottawa, as Cadillac Fairview (CF) properties is helping Canadian families feel some holiday spirit! CF Rideau Centre will offer shoppers a seasonal spectacle with an interactive experience called the Magic Gift Workshop!

Within The Magic Gift Shop, shoppers will meet the newest members of Santa’s team: The Tufties! They are a set of lovable, fuzzy creatures who are both amazing gift wrappers and entertainers. These little winter creatures are created here in Canada for CF and are visiting from the Arctic Islands off of Canada’s North Coast close to the North Pole. The Tufties are also very social creatures, who love to work and play together so much so that they are inseparable! Once inside of the workshop, visitors will see the magic unfold and how hard The Tufties work to make sure a gift looks perfect for Santa.
