Pair your Christmas shopping with a holiday.
Is your Christmas gift shopping list looming ominously in the back of your mind? It doesn’t have to be an ordeal – in fact, you can actually take a fun, relaxing break in your Margaret River region to clear your mind and your list at the same time.
We’ve got you covered with a round-up of some of the greatest spots to shop for even the most difficult person on your list.
For a loved one in need of a little TLC…
The luxurious and therapeutic products at Vasse Virgin harness the healing powers of extra virgin olive oil and amplify it with carefully selected pure essential oils and plant extracts. They’ve done all the hard work for you by putting together some of their bestsellers into gorgeous gift packs at great prices, but these are only available for a limited time so get in quick to treat your loved ones. Or, for those who need to get hands-on with their pampering, Vasse Virgin also offer gift vouchers for their three workshop experiences: Natural Perfumery, DIY Lip Balm and Olive Oil Masterclasses. Sorted.
Corrynnes‘ vast array of completely natural soaps, creams, scrubs and oils are the ultimate indulgence for the face, body and senses. The friendly staff will help you select just the right products that will encourage a friend to take some time out for relaxation and rejuvenation. Corynnes has also just opened a brand spanking new Margaret River store, meaning you can now catch them in both Dusnborough and Margs. How’s that for convenience?
For that gift that needs to be a little extra special…
John Miller Design
If the gifts you’ve given for the last five years have been a bit monotonous and you really want to up your game, you can never go wrong with a special piece of jewelry. That’s doubly true for the incredible designs from the team at John Miller. Check out their latest creations in their Yallingup gallery or custom design a special piece for maximum brownie points.
If you’ve got a creative, quirky, unique person in your life then you are going to need to find them a creative, quirky, unique gift and one of the best places for that is Oriel Karridale Gallery. The gallery features a bunch of stunning and exciting artworks, glassware and sculptures made by local artists, all inspired by our incredible coastlines.
For the eclectic folk…
Mukau Giftware & Gallery
Boasting a unique range of hand-selected goodies for young and old, Mukau is the place to go for gifts that are as diverse as our families and friends can be. From wooden toys, books and games for the kids to gorgeous leather handbags, jewellery and fashion, with a few novelty gifts and souvenirs thrown in for good measure and a local art gallery upstairs, there is literally something for everyone. As an added bonus, they even wrap the gift really nicely for just a gold coin donation toward the local primary school. Sorted!
For the young ones and the young at heart…
The delicious and delectable sweets and treats at Candy Cow are lovingly handcrafted in store and are the perfect Christmas stocking stuffer. The challenge will be trying not to eat them all before Santa comes.
For the sustainability-minded…
Hillzeez Down South Surf Shops
With stores in Busselton, Dunsborough and Margaret River, you’ll be able to check out Hillzeez wherever you decide to escape to. They have a huge range of surf equipment, skateboard and surfwear, with two modern surf brands standing out for the eco-loving crowd: Sisstr and Vissla. Not only are these brands all about creative expression, they also both strive to minimize their impact on the environment – think boardies made from up-cycled coconut husk, for example.
Margaret River Collaborative
With thirteen businesses under one roof all showcasing local and handmade products, the Margaret River Collaborative is a mecca for those wanting to cross off their Christmas list with a conscience. What’ll it be – a beautiful indoor plant? Handcrafted loose leaf tea? A candle? The Collaborative has got it all.
