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 Harris Scarfe, Kmart and Target.  

An obvious choice, but food and wine are their jam. Think outside the box and check out whisky glasses from Harris Scarfe, wine glasses from Kmart or even a Charcuterie board which you can find at Target. To up the ‘wow’ factor, make it fancy with a classic cocktail set, available at Harris Scarfe; 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 an apron from Harris Scarfe before heading to Alternations Now and New Look 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 Kmart or Harris Scarfe or a new pots and pan set from Harris Scarfe or Target.     

If you’re still stuck for ideas, head to Kmart or Target to check out the latest and greatest in cookbooks. We recommend the latest from Yotam Ottolenghi. 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 Priceline. A face-roller from Sportsgirl, a silk pillow case from Manchester Collection or an assortment of facemasks from The Body Shop 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? The Body Shop, Priceline and Chemist Warehouse always deliver.

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. 

Check out the BOSE headphones available at JB Hi-Fi, the perfect pair for anyone who is constantly on calls or tuning out at the gym.  

If wearables are more their thing, check out the range of fitness watches from JB HI-Fi and Rebelsuch as the range of Garmin watches or the 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.   

JB HI Fi also 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 Kmart and JB Hi-Fi for this type – think a new iPhone stand, a selfie ring light or an illuminated phone case.  We also recommend iTech Clinic, MyFone Repairs, Express iRepairs and Pimp My Mobile 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 JB Hi-Fi or Kmart. 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 Rebel or a new yoga mat, available at Kmart.

If your wellness warrior is a little less yogi and a little more gym buff, try Rebel for some new handheld weight sets or a thermal water bottle. Oh, and if you’re up for the challenge, go big and head to Kmart to get your hands on that therapy massage gun they’ve been raving about.

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 Lo Costa to check out their range of watercolour paints. Alternatively, try Kmart and Target for a beautiful take on adult colouring books. 

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 Pandora and Michael Hill, or something to make her ears dazzle, try Hoskings Jewellers. For the men, you can't go past a classic watch from Zamel's Jewellers.

Ever since Carrie Bradshaw graced our screens, what girl hasn't been obsessed with shoes! This year slides are all the trend. Try Ozmosis 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.
