From personalised Shapes to Harry Potter Le Creuset: Gifts for the Canberran who has everything

Posted on

There’s a saying in the HerCanberra office: It isn’t Christmas until GOOP’s annual gift guide has given you a laugh.

That’s because the GOOP Holiday Gift Guide—compiled by Gwyneth and her team—features some of the most outrageously amazing (and silly) gifts imaginable. Think: $10,500 Chanel snow sleds and $2000 marble checker sets.

So, we thought, why not compile our own outrageous-but-cool gift guide, featuring gifts you can buy right here at Canberra Centre? Don’t worry—there aren’t any Chanel sleds here—just a list of seriously cool gifts for all budgets that you won’t find anywhere else. After all—what do you get for the Canberran who has everything?

What’s more, Canberra Centre is holding its annual Black Friday Weekend sale from this Friday 26 November, where you’ll scoop discounts and deals across a range of stores. Need we remind you there’s only a month until Christmas?

The F.R.I.E.N.D.S Apartment, LEGO Store, $259

Canberra Centre’s newest shop—and Canberra’s only dedicated LEGO store—offers possibly the coolest gift of the season: a replica of Rachel and Monica and Chandler and Joey’s iconic apartments from F.R.I.E.N.D.S.

There’s even a little Janice in the hallway! Honestly, your Christmas wish list should just start and end here.

Personalised Arnott’s Shapes, TYPO, $10

Everyone has a favourite flavour of Australia’s favourite bikkie, Arnott’s Shapes—and now you can gift your little one or loved one their very own box this Christmas. TOO cute.

Harry Potter™ Le Creuset

Will it be the Harry Potter™ Signature Round Casserole with a solid brass lightning-bolt knob ($650), a Hogwarts™ Express Kettle ($220), or perhaps a Spellcasting Spatula Set ($110)?

They’re sure to brighten up any muggle’s kitchen. Accio!

Florist Dog Harness, Gorman, $39-59

Did you know that Gorman doesn’t just design gorgeous, Australian-made clothes for you and your kids—your fur babies can get in on the action too?

They come in sizes small to large and there’s even a range of matching accessories like leads, collars and even dog bowls.

Engraved AirPods Max, Apple, $899

Minimalism is so 2021. Apple’s new AirPods Max come in different colours AND you can have them engraved at the Apple Store? We’re calling it— these will be 2022’s hottest Zoom accessory.

Assorted spices, Gewürzhaus, from around $15 

People of the world, spice up your life!  Take your lead from Posh and Sporty and grab a jar of specialty spice from Gewürzhaus.

If your subject is a keen foodie, go wild with something like the Oishii Instant Ramen Blend or the Bavarian Roast Chicken spice. If not, we highly recommend the humble chilli salt.

MECCA MAX Party Flex Palette, $40, Mecca Maxima 

Bright, glittery lids are a holiday party must-have this summer, and this pigment-rich palette from Mecca’s own brand MECCA MAX will bring the shimmer.

F!NK Four Seasons Vase, top3 by design, $185

Every Canberra home should aspire to show off at least one piece of F!NK—the distinctive locally-made aluminium homewares created by the late and great local silversmith Robert Foster.

We love the yellow Four Seasons Vases on show at top3 by design. Make ours a large and you don’t even need to put flowers in it—it can sit happily on a countertop by itself looking sunny and bright.|-vase-|-yellow-|-large

Wooden Headrest, ZARA, $29.95

Looking pretty, not gritty. With warm days upon us, keeping sand out of hair will soon be the number one concern of beachgoers—so why not buy them a wooden headrest?

Millenia necklace, Swarovski, $1000

With new creative director, Giovanna Engelbert, at the helm, Swarovski has released a maximalist collection of rainbow geometric gems—and we are obsessed.

With a plethora of Christmas parties ahead, these will add festive sparkle to any outfit. We love the purple, but the Millenia also comes in green, blue and white.

Stationery, MUJI, from $1.50

After a lockdown spent largely online, Christmas represents a time to rediscover the joy of pen and paper.

MUJI has the most beautiful selection of wooden pencils, bound notebooks and pens that are a joy to write with. They are so pretty they barely need to be wrapped before heading underneath the tree.

Veneta Coffee Table, Coco Republic, $3595

Of all the luxe new furniture that’s arrived in town, thanks to Coco Republic’s new Canberra Centre showroom, this one is surely a showstopper. Hard to fit under Christmas tree, admittedly. But would bring untold joy.

Embroidery Pouch Kit, Sportsgirl, $24.95

Hands up if you took up embroidery in lockdown! Yep, us too, and now there’s a cute little bag that you can embroider AND keep all your bits and bobs in. Win-win!

Diptyque Baies Carousel Candle, Mecca Cosmetica, $166

You may have candles, but does your candle come with its own gilt carousel? We think not. Offering a new twist on a traditional European Christmas candle carousel, scent your home with the cult classic Baies candle from French fragrance house Diptyque. Also—it spins!

Zodiac Earrings, Les Néréides, $189

We all know someone obsessed with their star sign—and French jewellery house Les Néréides has the perfect gift for them with these delicately detailed asymmetric crystal and gold-plated earrings. Pictured here is the Aquarius set.

Dr. Dennis Gross DRx Spectralite FaceWare Pro Pearl, Mecca Maxima, $620

A three-minute wrinkle-reducing LED device? Yes please! The price tag might look hefty, but when you compare it to the cost of cosmetic LED treatment appointments… A perfect party season pick-me-up! 

Brimming with inspiration?

Head to Canberra Centre to pick up these gifts and more, with Black Friday Weekend sales kicking off Friday 26 November.
