The ultimate Christmas gift guide
It's that time of year again! This festive season, we’re taking the stress out of gift-giving and granting you a free pass to the ultimate Christmas gift guide for all.
Whether it’s your kooky co-worker with matching stationery, or your tech-obsessed cousin who has recently taken to TikTok in a big way, we’ve got you sorted.
For the entertainer
Always the life of the party and first to call dibs on hosting Christmas (or any event for that matter) - does this sound like your giftee?
We all know one, but how do you shop for them? You can’t go wrong with updating their BBQ equipment - a good host(ess) is nothing without their favourite tools, so head straight for Stevens.
An obvious choice, but food and wine are their jam. Think outside the box and check out these whisky glasses, wine glasses and an Charcuterie board which you can find at Stevens. To up the ‘wow’ factor, make it fancy with a classic cocktail set, available at Farmers; a must have for any self-proclaimed entertainer.

For the foodie
They’ve nailed home-made pasta and have sent you one too many photos of their sourdough creations. Here’s how to shop for your way-too-talented friend or family member, because let’s face it, you want to continue reaping the rewards of their new fixation on creating the perfect brownie.
Plan ahead and up your gifting game with a personalised apron from Logoland to add a touch of personalisation that’s sure to get a ‘wow’ on Christmas Day.
To make all their foodie dreams come true, why not indulge in some new kitchen must-haves. Think an air fryer from Kmart or a new pots and pan set from Farmers.
If you’re still stuck for ideas, head to Whitcoulls to check out the latest and greatest in cookbooks. We recommend Stuck Together: Recipes to Share with the People You Love by Sarah Tuck. You can thank us later.

For the beauty enthusiast
A face-roller and plant-based collagen décolletage mask might not mean much to you, but to them this is the perfect Saturday night. Our beauty-loving giftee is always glowing with fresh skin, and never, ever has a hair out of place.
You can’t go wrong if you start at Farmers. A face-oil from The Ordinary, a beautiful linen pillow case from Domani or an assortment of facemasks from Khiel's are all options which that won’t break the bank and are the perfect stocking filler.
