It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Quality time is spent with our friends and family, there’s plenty of festive food, and so many presents! Need to squeeze some last-minute shopping in? This latest C&G blog showcases the best of Bayside shopping during the holiday season.
There’s never been a better time to shop local! Avoid the city crowds by visiting a variety of Bayside stores and boutiques to snap up a bargain for your loved ones... or yourself! From gifts and homewares to locally designed children’s goods and women’s apparel, there’s something to delight everyone. The best of Bayside can be found near our offices, within the local gems Elwood and Port Melbourne. Here is some local love:
Port Melbourne's best retail stores open over Christmas and can be found in this nifty directory, 3207 Port. The curated list includes Mary Martin Bookshop, Style by Nature and Guitar Emporium, amongst other Port Melbourne favourites.
Known for its shopping and café strips, Elwood has you covered for gifts. From unique fashion, local groceries and natural homewares, this Concrete Playground article breaks down Elwood’s must-visit destinations if you’re planning to support local this holiday season.
Who said shopping local couldn’t be done online? Besides browsing from the comfort of your couch, you can skip the queues and parking dramas to find the perfect gift. All it takes is a quick Google or social media search to find and follow your best-loved stores.
Get Boxing Day ready as sales will start the second the clock strikes midnight on the 26th of December – if not before! You may have been lucky and scored some wish list items over Christmas, so mark them off and start preparing a new list for 2021. You can never be too prepared, after all! Valentine’s Day, birthdays or even next year’s Christmas presents… oh how time flies!
