Hold onto your Santa hats because Christmas is just over a month away!
Before we know it, we’ll be running around like headless chooks in search of the perfect gifts for our nearest and dearest, so let’s try and simplify things shall we?
If you roll with the five-gift rule and do all your shopping in one place, Christmas shopping can actually be a breeze and kind of fun. The five-gift rule is a fun way to give thoughtful gifts without going overboard, focusing on five categories: something they want, something they need, something to wear, something to read, or an experience.
With Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales just around the corner (November 24-27), there’s never been a better time to kickstart your Christmas shopping early and snag some cracking deals. So, let’s see what Forrest Chase has to offer for the big five, shall we?
This is the big gift; the one that’s been on their wish list for ages. Myer Forrest Chase has got everything you’d find in Santa’s workshop, including all kinds of fun for the kids, gift sets from the likes of Chanel and Yves Saint Lauren, or maybe a statement handbag from Calvin Klein or Olga Berg. They’re also the place to go for quality fragrances, as is Mecca, stocking the likes of Diptyque, Byredo and Floral Street.
For the tech heads out there, hit up JB Hi-Fi for headphones, speakers, tablets, smartphones, smartwatches, personal grooming appliances and gaming must-haves, along with its massive pop culture section for collectibles and themed board games, and of course this year’s hottest two music items: the Barbie movie soundtrack or 1989 (Taylor’s Version) on vinyl:
Got someone on your Christmas list in need of makeup brushes or a signature lippie? Stock up on skincare and beauty products at Mecca or head upstairs to the Clear Skincare Clinic, where you can also pop into House of Ernest for their range of hair care products. Meanwhile Myer is the go-to destination for all your homewares, appliances and everyday essentials like reusable drink bottles, lunchboxes, socks, and undies.
This year we’re picking something that often gets overlooked but is so important in your day to day life – getting a good night’s sleep! Help your loved ones chuck out that tired old pillow and grab ‘em a Dentons Pillows Medi Rest Therapeutic Support Pillow.
Forrest Chase is home to a heap of popular retailers that cover all your “something to wear” needs. Think quality activewear from lululemon, cute pyjamas from Peter Alexander, perfect-fitting jeans from the Levi’s store, streetwear from the Universal Store and sexy lingerie from Honey Birdette.
For a classic pair of boots, look no further than R.M Williams, S. Story is the place to go for a quirky hat or colourful scarf, and for a stunning selection of women’s shoes, head to Nine West. For the latest women’s fashion, there’s Sportsgirl, Seed, Sussan and Cue – whose perfect mid-wash wide leg jeans are about to become our summer staple, taking us straight from casual Fridays at the office into festive drinks with effortless style.
Myer’s book selection caters to every age and interest, offering a diverse range from picture and activity books to coffee table books, cookbooks, and more. From Bluey, Usborne, Dr Seuss or Eric Carle books for the youngsters to The Little Books of Gucci, Prada, Dior, Chanel and Louis Vuitton for the fashion lovers. Crafty ones will appreciate the Sticker Dolly Dressing books and make-your-own paper aeroplane options, while culinary enthusiasts will find cookbooks by renowned chefs like Jamie Oliver, Donna Hay and Nagi Maehashi. You can also keep things digital with a Kindle Paperwhite from JB Hi-Fi?
If you’re thinking of pampering someone who loves getting their hair and nails done, along with treatments like facials and injectables, consider getting them a voucher for Regal Nails, Clear Skincare Clinic or House of Ernest to have them feeling fresh and fun for 2024.
For the fun seekers in the family, a day out at B.Lucky & Sons or Strike Bowling will put a smile on their face. Strike Bowling makes things easy with their Gift Card option, which can be spent on food and drinks along with a host of activities within the complex including escape rooms, karaoke and more.
