With only 7 shopping days left to buy Christmas presents, I have compiled my annual Christmas gift guide reflective of Brisbane with each gift personifying the wonderful city we live in.
Museum of Brisbane Gift Shop
The Museum of Brisbane shop supports local artists and designers by featuring a range of Brisbane-based creatives including Debra Hilda Hood, Husque, J Frank, Little Building Co, Virginia Jones, Rock and Gold, Concrete Jellyfish and Sharon Muir to name a few. As well as stocking a range of gourmet local produce including New Farm Confectionery and West End Tea Company.
Every purchase supports the Museum to tell Brisbane stories, share our history and showcase artists. Shop Museum of Brisbane gifts here.
Merlo Designer Coffee Cup Collection
Brisbane’s own Merlo Coffee not only supply Brisbane with the best coffee they also proudly present their annual Merlo Coffee Art Series which has been developed to support Art from the Margins – a creative initiative of Wesley Mission Queensland. Each year, Merlo Coffee selects a piece of art by one of AFTM’s artists and showcases the work on a limited edition set of collectable, beautifully boxed, high quality porcelain coffee cups and saucers. Shop Merlo coffee gifts here.
Cake and Bake
Give the gift of food with baked treats from Brisbane’s Lady of Baking, Jocelyn Hancock. All your favourite Christmas treats are baked fresh in store using only the freshest, farm sourced produce from Jocelyn’s own farm or a network of local farmers. Choose from Christmas cakes, fruit mince tarts, rocky road and ginger spiced Christmas trees and Gingerbread men or perhaps buy one of each and create a Cake and Bake Christmas hamper. Shop Cake and Bake here.
The Wheel of Brisbane
For those people who have everything why not give the gift of an experience, like a ride on the Wheel of Brisbane. Situated at South Bank Parklands the Wheel of Brisbane offers a unique way to see the sights of Brisbane by day and lights by night. Shop Wheel of Brisbane here.
I hope my list of Brisbane gifts has helped you find the perfect gift for that special someone.
