What do you want when you’re Christmas shopping? I’ll bet unique gift ideas, thoughtfully produced goods and a one stop shop for everyone on your list are right up there. What about supporting Western Australian creatives in a friendly, laid back environment? That too I’d say. This is what you get when you stop by any of Perth’s regular, handmade markets.
In Part 2 of our Mother’s Day gift guide, we are focusing on smaller items that you could easily gift alone or pair together to create your own bespoke hamper. See Part 1 here.
Situated just a 45-minute drive from Perth city centre, Mundaring is a picturesque place for a full or half day trip. One-third of the shire is state forest, making the drive as well as the visit itself a pleasant one to say the least. Start the day by popping into an art gallery, then stock up your pantry, stop for a tranquil lunch under the trees, swim in a lake, head out for a hike, and reward yourself with pizza before catching a flick outdoors. Here are our tried and tested faves from the area.
Welcome to the 2016 edition of our Christmas Gift Guides! Here we have some fun ideas for inexpensive gifts, each available from Perth stores or Perth designers. It might be an office Secret Santa pressie that you’re on the hunt for, or you want to grab a little something for your brother’s new girlfriend who is coming to meet the family for the first time. And don’t forget, it’s always good to have a spare wrapped gift or two under the tree in case unexpected guests pop around and they have something for you! Anything from this selection of gems will be well received, no doubt about it.

Yoke takes pride of place on the corner of Dundas Road and Beaufort Street in Inglewood. When driving past, you’ve probably spotted their super cool deckchairs stretched out on the pavement, or perhaps you’ve keenly window-shopped while waiting for a takeaway coffee at Finlay & Sons across the road. If you haven’t stepped foot inside yet, we’d like to introduce to you your new favourite gift shop.
Beau est Mien will release their new collection of prints, paper goods and gifts on Friday 29 July. Created by Beau est Mien founder Magali Dincher – an artist originally from the north of France – alongside manager and printmaker Alina Tang, these beautiful new products have each been made locally.
Aptly titled Bloom Voyage, the new collection features floral illustrations that have been inspired by 12 different places across the world. Thanks to Beau est Mien, we are giving away a Bloom Voyage prize pack!
When you’re looking at the location of Perth on a map, or when a GPS reveals how far away you are from Perth, the location they are referring to is in fact in Cathedral Square. The location of the original post office was in the precinct, and while the PO has long gone, you can still stand at Point Zero, marked on the pavement.
