Who says holiday shopping has to be stressful? At the CultureMap Holiday Pop-up Shop on December 3, there will be so many jolly things to see, do, and buy, that even Santa himself plans to stop by.

Presented by Infiniti, the event is a curated holiday boutique featuring favorite local retailers for men, women, kids, pets, jewelry, gifts, home, and gourmet food and beverages.

That's just the start. You also can enjoy cocktails, festive food, letters and snaps with Santa, tunes spun by a DJ Bizonee, and more.  

Here's a closer look at all the activities that will make the day merry and bright.

Gift buying, of course, is the main event. It's the perfect opportunity to get all your holiday shopping done in one place and support Houston’ retailers. Vendors include Baanou ​women's clothing boutique, Arka Living home decor, and Annie Digs for pets. Here's a complete list of the local retailers you'll be able to shop.

Spirited sips
Be sure to visit the Korbel/Whole Foods mimosa bar for plenty of good cheer. Then refuel at the Ketel One cocktail cart, where you'll get to make your own cocktails using fresh, seasonal fruits and herbs. Enjoy sips from Noble Vines. And drink up in the Gentleman Jack Club with a trio of cocktails from which to choose. 

Festive food
The shopping extravaganza also will feature noshes and nibbles from some of the event partners, as well as food gifts to take home for loved ones. Yummy offerings include bites from Nothing Bundt Cakes, Mad Hectic Foods, and Briggs TRUE.

Look good, feel good
Want a fresh holiday cut? Gentleman Jack will set up a barbershop for the guys. 

Visit with Santa
Take one last chance to convince Santa you deserve something sparkly under the tree when you stop for a snap with Old Saint Nick, presented by Infiniti. 

Give back
Even better, show Santa you're on the nice list. In the spirit of the holidays, bring a new, unwrapped gift to benefit the Toys for Tots Foundation. As extra incentive, the first 50 guests to bring a gift will receive a Tiff's Treats gift card.

Excited yet? If so, then reserve your free tickets now.
