Stone Harbor may be known as a quintessential summer getaway with its pristine stretches of shoreline and warm, endless summer evenings with chilled rosé but local New Jerseyans can attest that winter bring its own magical charm to this chic, Southern Jersey beach town.
While some of the enclave’s iconic seasonal events have been placed on hold this year, The Reeds at Shelter Haven, a boutique luxury hotel perched right on Shelter Haven basin, is serving both locals and guests holiday cheer in a more personalized and socially distanced environment.
Running now through Christmas Eve, The Reeds is featuring an exclusive holiday pop-up with Montclair New Jersey-based independent toy store, Just Kidding Around Toys, located at the hotel’s spacious retail storefront in the heart of Stone Harbor. Showcasing toys from the beloved shop’s curated collection, the holiday pop-up has a brilliant selection of hand-selected items to help engage children of all ages in unique ways.
Shoppers can find a wide array for each and every child on their list with gifts ranging from arts and crafts to musical play pieces and educational sets sure to keep young ones entertained in the New Year ahead. Additionally, young shoppers have the chance to video conference directly with Santa each weekend, joining directly from his North Pole workshop, to share their personal wish list for the holiday season.
And while securing that hard-to-find toy for loved ones and a tete-a-date with Santa may be reason enough for a visit, the boutique also serves as a drop off location for the Cape May Toys for Tots, which distributes toys as holiday gifts to children in the community. Dozens of toy donations have already been gathered at The Reeds and shoppers are encouraged to purchase or drop off a toy during this unprecedented time when much of our New Jersey community is in need.
