The Camberwell Junction Christmas gift guide 2023
Article posted: November 14, 2023
It’s one of the greatest joys of Christmas, experiencing the delight of loved ones when they unwrap that perfect gift. It’s also one of the most elusive.
Every Christmas list has people who are notoriously hard to buy for, those with a wide range of interests and tastes, and a special few you want to give a particularly thoughtful gift. For many of us, just the thought of Christmas shopping can seem overwhelming!
With more than 400 shops offering a wide range of ideas, Camberwell Junction has a present that is perfect for everyone on your list, so head to the precinct, where the festive and relaxed environment captures all the fun and magic of Christmas.
Here’s our eagerly awaited annual Christmas gift guide to help inspire your Christmas shopping this year.
What Mum would really love for Christmas is something she has been asking for since you were a kid – a bit of peace and quiet!
Relaxation and tranquility come in many forms in Camberwell Junction: Little Mandarin Yoga & Pilates offers quietening and calming classes, a Thai massage at Silk Natural Wellbeing will give Mum the gift of pure bliss, and a day of pampering at Endota Spa will have her radiating beauty and zen-like inner peace.
A great rule of thumb for Christmas shopping for Dad is: if it moves, it’s perfect!
You’ll find something great for the Dad who loves tinkering with cars at Autobarn; and if his preferred mode of transport includes two wheels and the wind in his hair, there’s a huge range of bikes and cycling accessories at Cycles Galleria and Bike Gallery.
For the dad who likes keeping in shape, check out the gym membership options at Anytime Fitness.
If Dad considers himself a bit of wine buff or is building his cellar, book him in for a bespoke wine session with Pierre at PS Wine Selections, a professional sommelier offering wine advice, wine purchase and private tasting.
For your brother
No matter how old, young, or young at heart your brother, he’ll love the latest in entertainment equipment at Tivoli Hi-Fi & Home Cinema or Sight and Sound Galleria. Check out the latest in audio and sound accessories as well as TVs and portable devices.
Is your brother a gamer, coder or VR enthusiast? You’ll get a million likes from him if you give him a Christmas gift of the latest in gaming technology from JB Hi-Fi. Or if your brother’s favourite games happen IRL, check out Gundams Plus, a hobby shop that specialises in model kits, as well as train sets and kites.
For your sister
Fashion is a great Christmas present option for your sister – and at Camberwell Junction you are spoiled for choice!
There’s a huge range of homewares and fashion accessories with a bit of sass and attitude at Montebello Emporium, or help her create a spa experience at home, by curating a basket of beauty products from Priceline Pharmacy.
For the kids
Camberwell Junction is awash with toys for all ages, all interests and at every price point!
If your child (or a child in your life) is a budding musician and would like to improve their skills, sign them up for music lessons at Sharon Davis Music. Or if you have a little Picasso on your hands, stock up on arts and crafts supplies at Smiggle.
For Grandma and Grandpa
The one thing grandparents love above all else is spending time with their grandchildren.
Make sure you get in some in-person bonding time with your grandparents by treating them to an afternoon at the iconic and beautifully appointed Rivoli Cinemas.
Grandma and Grandpa are probably spending more time at home these days and would love homewares or gardening gifts. How about some gorgeous, quality linen from Bed Bath N Table, a luxurious throw rug from Creswick Woollen Mills, or kitchen or tableware from Wheel & Barrow.
For friends and colleagues
At Christmas, chocolate will always be a winner and you can choose from a fabulous selection of sweet gifts at a range of price points at The Chocolate Box.
You’ll find some really special and lovely gifts including journals, origami paper, pens and cards at Paper Republic; and if your friends are the type that are always up for a tea and chat, head to T2 Tea for a wide range of Christmas-themed tea blends, teacups and accessories.
Forget running around from one shopping centre to another – you’ll meet all your gift-giving needs in Camberwell Junction, leaving you more time and energy to enjoy Christmas with those you love.
