The Ultimate Christmas Gift Guide – Subi Edition
Pull out the stockings, stock up on those candy canes and light up the Christmas tree as Subiaco is the place to be. What better way to spread the holiday cheer than the Subi way? But the next question is, how is the Christmas shopping going?
When it comes to Christmas presents, Subi even has Santa taking notes! From the gift of experiences to the gift of homewares, Subiaco has a plethora of amazing locations to help tick everyone off that long Christmas list.
Make a Gourmet Hamper
Who can say no to a delicious gourmet hamper? Here in Subi, there’s a range of shops to pick up the perfect ingredients to create the ultimate Christmas hamper. Head to Growers Lane for a healthy range of locally grown produce including a butcher, deli, bakery and gourmet groceries too. Then opposite Farmer Jacks, you'll find Urban Soul Foods. They have an incredible collection of gourmet cheeses and condiments that is sure to impress the foodies in your life. Along Rokeby Road is Simon Johnson.
Here you'll find a huge Christmas collection filled with the finest Australian and international products. Hint: A beautifully wrapped baby Panettone from Simon Johnson makes a great host gift!
A Feel-Good Book
There is nothing quite like the classics, a book is an excellent way to take a breather and welcome the year coming to an end. Select anything from a Christmas classic to travel, history, biographies or even a thriller, and surprise those who are nearest and dearest with the gift of literature. Head to Dymocks or the Subiaco Bookshop to pick up a page-turner for your loved-ones.
An added bonus? Dymocks Subiaco have just opened a pop-up gift shop next door, chock full of fantastic gift ideas such as travel boxes, board games, funky porcelain mugs and Christmas stationery. Great for secret Santa gifts or stocking stuffers.
Make loved ones feel extra spoilt this silly season with their very own Waterford Crystal Wine Glass Set from Table Culture. The contemporary fine crystal glass adds that extra crisp when sipping on delicious white wine. If wine doesn’t meet the mark, don’t worry because Table Culture has an amazing range of unique homewares from around the world and also from local suppliers. Finding an excellent Christmas present here is almost 100% guaranteed!
Another great place to find homeware gifts is Cavania Australia, recently opened on Rokeby Road. There’s candles, diffusers, jewellery plates, picture frames, decorative ornaments and so much more.
Get Fringe Festival Tickets
Nothing beats the arts! Subilicious, Subiaco's Fringe World Festive Hub is coming back in 2020 so why not get in early and gift tickets to some of the Fringe events happening right here in Subi? Shows like ‘Adventures of the Bearded Lady’ and ‘Outback Angels’ will be making their way to Subi during Fringe season. Surprise loved ones with the experience of Fringe.
A thoughtful gift can sometimes be the most memorable. Why not custom make a ceramic bauble from the Painted Teapot? Embellish it with the spirit of Christmas that even has Rudolph feeling envious! Or, if a ceramic bauble isn’t the right fit, why not custom make a teacup or flower vase, personalised to reflect the unique connection shared with a loved one.
The Gift of Relaxation
The year has been a whirlwind, we have all had our ups and downs and now with the end of year, it is time to relax! This is why the gift of relaxation is a priceless one that loved ones will truly treasure. Let your friends and family forget their worries, for a mere moment, as they relish a calming treatment from Spa L’Occitane. Located on 97 Rokeby Road in Subiaco, they have gorgeous treatments to help patrons feel rejuvenated and balanced.
Gift a little sparkle
There’s never an occasion where the gift of jewellery isn’t well received. A bracelet, ear rings, bangles, rings, cufflinks, watches and more. The options are endless and Subi has countless jewellery stores to shop from. Visit local favourites Linneys, Ecali Fine Jewellery, Smales Jewellers, Thomas Meihofer, Willie Creek Pearls and Kul Kul, just to name a few. All have their own unique range of jewellery that will have you spoilt for choice.
Anything from Spoilt at Subi
If you still struggling for gifts, head to Spoilt at Subi. Dedicated to giftware, you’ll find a curated collection of handmade ceramics, in-house designed clothing, artisan jewellery and clever greeting cards. What will be difficult is leaving this store without buying a little something for yourself.
