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 MYER or John Alan Betta Home Living.
An obvious choice, but food and wine are their jam. Think outside the box and check out these whisky glasses from House, wine glasses from Minimax or even a Charcuterie board which you can find at Harris Scarfe. To up the ‘wow’ factor, make it fancy with a classic cocktail set, available at MYER; 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.
If you’re still stuck for ideas, head to Dymocks 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 MYER. A face-roller from Priceline, a silk pillow case from MYER or an assortment of facemasks from MYER 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 always deliver.

We also recommend heading to JB Hi-Fi 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 Hi Touch Mobile for this type – think a new iPhone stand, a selfie ring light or an illuminated phone case. We also recommend Haiou 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. Don’t forget to pick up some extra film, too!
