Ahhh Christmas. It’s a magical time of year. A time to catch up with friends and family, to spend long days at the beach and to eat more seafood in a sitting than any one person should be able to consume in a week. But it’s also a time to stress yourself out about buying the perfect presents, avoid it for weeks and then head to your local shopping centre on Christmas eve and wind up crying in the corner because there are too. many. people!

So let’s avoid that this year shall we? We’ve found everything your friends and fam could ever want and wrapped it up into your ultimate guide to Christmas shopping in Perth. And best of all, you'll be supporting our incredible local retailers.

Booze

Let’s face it, a quality drop of alcohol never goes unappreciated on Christmas day. And Perth has no shortage of top tier boutique bottle shops packed with locally produced wines, beers and spirits. Our top pick this year has to be these beautiful bottled cocktails from Republic Of Fremantle, but there are plenty more tipples around town. Just drop into any of the below stores to pick up something spesh for your nearest and dearest. If you’re just not sure though, sing out to the staff at any of these joints and they’ll point you in the right direction or just work through this list of top local wines to gift and sip according to some of Perth's top sommeliers.

Books

Books are always a great way to show you really know your giftee because there is literally a book for everything. Buying for someone who can’t get enough of looking at interiors on Instagram? Pick them up a new coffee table book. Travel addict? Let their eyes do the wondering as they flick through pages of drop-dead gorgeous destinations. Sneaker fan? Yep, there’s books for them too.

Gourmet Bites

For the foodies in your life, splash out on some exceptional bites from our local providores. From creamy cheeses and crunchy local pickles, to sweet delights and postcode honey, we’re pretty lucky here in Perth when it comes to gourmet food supplies. We're currently eyeing off this awesome gourmet hamper from Coogee Common, packed with loads of yummy jams, pickles and preserves all made in-venue. But you can always check out some of the best stores below. While you’re at it, do some shopping for your Christmas day feast.

While this year there won’t be as many festival tickets available for gifting to the music fanatics in your life, there are still plenty of musical treasures around town that would make the perfect gift. Why not pop into one of Perth’s best record stores and gift some classic vinyl?

If the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that indoor plants are a surefire way to feel better in your space. There are so many incredible boutiques around Perth where you can pick up a cute lil potted fiddle leaf fig, devils ivy, or monstera for the special plant fiends in your life. Or for something extra special, why not get in on this game-changing new piece of plant tech designed right here in Perth—it's due for release next year but you can donate to the Kickstarter now and your special plant lover will be one of the first to score these cool plant sensors that tell you exactly what your plant needs and when.
