5 Gifts to Give this Christmas
on 01 December 2020 in Events & Entertainment


Christmas is coming in fast, and there’s just so many products being sold these days that it can be overwhelming to pick the right gift. 

Whether it’s for a family member, a couple of best mates, or even your boss, here are 5 perfect gifts to give this Christmas that will reflect positively on you.

A luxurious boutique hotel retreat 

Experiences have been the rage in place of traditional tangible Christmas gifts. After all, many people these days have far too many things that it all ends up as house clutter eventually.

And if there’s an experience you could gift that would absolutely make someone’s day, it’s definitely going to be a luxurious boutique hotel retreat that will relax and rejuvenate.

With affordable experiences such as the Redearth Boutique Hotel’s Indulgence Escape Package that provides luxurious Mount Isa accommodation in a stylish king spa suite, it’s easy to share some luxury this Christmas. Simply purchase a Redearth Boutique Hotel gift card at the hotel reception and gift this special treat to them.

Pamper your loved one with the complimentary bottle of sparkling wine, heart-shaped chocolates, a welcome platter, comprehensive spa and bath packs, followed by a late checkout.

You can also gift the experience of Mount Isa with an affordable option through Isa Hotel gift cards.

The beauty about being in the Oasis of the Outback, Mount Isa has so much to offer in learning more about Australian culture and history while being entertained.

A personalised bottle of True Blue Australian Whisky

For the whisky lover or person who is curious to indulge in the realms of quality Australian whisky, how about introducing them to the finest whisky Australia has to offer?

The beauty about whisky is that it’s a drink to be appreciated. Drinkers savour and indulge in the flavours, notes, and aromas of a whisky.

And to convince you further, the word whisky means ‘water of life’ in Gaelic, it’s easy on the waistline, whisky contains antioxidants, it relieves stress, and it looks and tastes delicious when appreciated.

NED Australian Whisky is distilled from the finest Australian grain and aged in second fill oak and finished in new heavily charred oak, drawing out a bold and unmistakable character desired by dark spirit drinkers. With coconut, vanilla, stone and dry fruit, and hints of chocolate aromas, this beauty will entice any alcohol drinker for a taste.

This Christmas, NED Whisky is offering a limited time personalised bottle of whisky crafted the old fashioned way by their Melbourne calligrapher.

Wellness and self-care gifts 

Christmas is all about love and affection, so why not show some of that in your gift? Wellness and self-care gifts are meaningful as it gives the receiver the opportunity to love and care for themselves. It also helps them take the edge off by relaxing and unwinding after the year’s hard work.

Common wellness and self-care gifts which are great include:

Bath bombs to entice them into having a bath – popular brands include those made from Lush
Eye masks to re-energise and soothe tired eyes
Body scrubs for a bit of detoxing and silky smooth skin
Scented soy wax candles to relax and enhance a calm and soothing atmosphere
Wellness passion journals that encourage self-love and care – with over 1,700 reviews on Amazon Australia, the Moleskine Passion Wellness Journal is a must if you do decide to get one

An adventure

Browse adventures and explorations on sites like Experience Oz to discover appropriate experiences you’d like to gift this Christmas.

From exciting skydiving experiences that will get your adrenaline pumping to calmer ones such as winery touring or Great Barrier Reef exploring, there’s just so much to see and do in Australia.

Food & Drink

Nothing brings people together more than amazing food, so why not gift it this Christmas?

You could splurge in indulgence with Koko Black premium handcrafted chocolates, which are now offering personalised chocolates the way you like it. 

But giving food and drinks doesn’t have to be fancy or expensive. It can be heartfelt and homemade such as a hearty loaf of bread or traditional Christmas fruitcake. 

With all the wonderful options to give an amazing Christmas gift this year, we hope you have a wonderful festive time with loved ones and have a Happy New Year!
