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 Noel Leeming or David Jones.  

An obvious choice, but food and wine are their jam. Think outside the box and check out these whisky glasses or wine glasses from David Jones or even a Charcuterie board which you can also find at David Jones. 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 and gift them an apron from Farmers or Bed Bath N' Table before heading to Capabilities or Looksmart Alterations 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 Noel Leeming or a new pots and pan set from Le Creuset.     

If you’re still stuck for ideas, head to Whitcoulls to check out the latest and greatest in cookbooks. We recommend Scrumptious by Chelsea Winter or Essential Volume Two : Sweet Treats for Every Occasion by Annabel Langbein.

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 MECCA. A face-roller from MECCA, a silk pillow case from Bed Bath N' Table or an assortment of facemasks from MECCA or Farmers are all options which that won’t break the bank and are the perfect stocking filler.

For beauty lovers, one of the best parts of Christmas is the gift sets. Our picks? Say hello to feel-good beauty with MECCA limited-edition Holiday collection, discover scented luxury gifts by Jo Malone London from Farmers or David Jones for that special someone this holiday season or beauty gift by Elizabeth Arden from Life Pharmacy.

For the tech-obsessed

Young or old, tech knows no age limit for this giftee. They love shiny and new-to-market and live for the gifting season. 

If wearables are more their thing, check out the range of fitness watches from Noel Leeming, such as the Garmin watch or Apple Watch, which will have them tracking everything from their daily steps to their heart-rate. Discover our favourite tech gadgets to make gift giving that little bit easier here.

We also recommend heading to Noel Leeming who have everything from drones to smart home systems, both big wins when it comes to the tech fiends.

For the pre-teen screen queen 

This giftee has more recently moved from making home-made slime to learning the latest TikTok dances. They live for the screen and know exactly what’s involved in taking a perfectly angled selfie.

You will find most options available at Mobie for this type – think a new iPhone stand, a selfie ring light or an illuminated phone case.  We also recommend Samsung Studio and Phone Zone for all the latest in fun phone accessories. You name it, they have it, and your giftee most likely wants it. 

If old school polaroids are more their style, pick up an Instax Mini 11 camera from Noel Leeming. Don’t forget to pick up some extra film, too!  

For the wellness -warrior 

This giftee is always ahead of the curve when it comes to trying the latest health and fitness trends and love them selves a motivational quote

Try and keep things simple with the latest in fitness apparel, with a matching crop and tights set from Lorna Jane or Stirling Sports or a new yoga mat, available at Rebel Sport.

If your wellness warrior is a little less yogi and a little more gym buff, try Torpedo 7 for some new handheld weight sets or a thermal water bottle.

For the crafty ones 

Their talent knows no bounds – from knitted jumpers to hand-painted murals on their bedroom wall, our crafty giftee is always on the market for the latest and greatest in DIY. 

Head straight to Whitcoulls or Creative & Brave to check out their range of watercolour paints and pottery sets. 

For the fashionista

Finding the right gift for your trend-savvy loved one is never easy, especially if you aren't on their fashion level. If you don't know what is in and what is so last year, the trick is to keep it simple. Adorn them with a dainty necklace for layering from Michael Hill, Walker & Hall, Pascoes The Jewellers , or something to make her ears dazzle, try Swarovski. For the men, you can't go past a classic watch from David Jones or Michael Hill.

Ever since Carrie Bradshaw graced our screens, what girl hasn't been obsessed with shoes! This year slides are all the trend for a dressy look visit Merchant 1948, Novo, Hannahs or David Jones or try Scarpa, Aje, Seed Heritage or Witchery for the ultimate cool but comfort factor.

If you are still in doubt, accessories are the ultimate gift. From belts to sunglasses and bags, your fashionista is sure to be impressed from Sunglass Hut, Lentes & Marcos, Scarpa, POLITIX and Lovisa.
