If you know a certain someone with big plans to explore the best of NSW this summer, head into Country Road for hats, stylish cooler bags and luscious beach towels, Bed Bath N’ Table for an underwater camera and Good Times Watchmaker for a Maglite torch. You’ll find sunglasses at Prevue Eyewear and OPSM, walking kicks at Shoe Guru, travel books at Book Review and all the boots and accessories you could want for an outback adventure at R.M.Williams.

There are plenty of booklovers out there who’d rather spend Christmas day with their nose in the newest fantasy title. Look no further than our experienced, independent seller Book Review for all the latest reads and bookish gifts and accessories. There’s also Nextra for magazines, stationery and select fiction, and Kidstuff for the budding bookworm.

For the Fashionista
Fashion-conscious men and women are easy to buy for at St Ives Shopping Village. Gorgeous in-style threads fill the racks at Trenery, Cable Melbourne, DCC, Witchery, GAZMAN and Country Road. Or opt for some fancy footwear from R.M.Williams and Warwick Dawson Shoes.
