We love that this treasure trove is a one-stop-shop with gifts for babies, the home, pets, him and her. You can trust they've got all your gifting favourites - we're talking Frank Green, Jones & Co, Kip & Co - as well as plenty of new brands waiting to be discovered. 

Shop 11, 14 Franklin Street, Manuka 



One for the book lover in your life, Muse has one of the best selections of books you'll find. They've got a great collection of coffee table books and recipe books, perfect for gifting, as well as signed novels and non-fiction books. The best part? Muse is also a cafe so you can browse whilst waiting for your bacon and eggs or with a coffee in hand. 

Ground Floor, East Hotel, 69 Canberra Avenue, Griffith 

Bison Home 

This homegrown homewares brand grew out of a love of Scandinavian and Asian ceramics. The pared-back design of the finished products is now renowned throughout the country and well sought after. A visit to their Canberra store is an absolute delight with coloured glass and ceramics peeking out from every corner. You'll find everything from dinner sets to teapots and all the homeware staples in between. 

8/12 Beltana Road, Pialligo 

The Curatoreum

We all love a museum shop, it has to be said. The National Portrait Gallery's The Curatoreum is a step above, with curious bits and bobs tucked into every corner. You're bound to find something unique as the store prioritises Australian-made goodies from ceramics through to jewellery and screen-printed textiles. The book selection is also impeccable with plenty of hard-to-find hardbacks and coffee table books to purchase. It's worth the trip for the store alone but we recommend squeezing in a round of the gallery, too. 

King Edward Terrace, Parkes 

The Green Vine

The Green Vine is the perfect spot if your giftee is more into plants than flowers. You’ll find a huge variety of indoor plants here, catering to everyone from gardening novices to true green thumbs. You can also add one of the store’s beautiful and unique pots and planters to your present, or even an item from their selection of gifts – our pick is the monstera leaf earrings. If you're lucky, resident pooch Rocky will be in-store welcoming free pats.

Wine is the ideal gift when you’re not quite sure what to get someone, and Paranormal Wines in Campbell is the ideal place to buy it. The staff here are absolute experts and will help you pick out the best drop for your giftee. While you’re there, make sure to take a seat and order a glass of vino paired with Paranormal’s delicious food menu – you won’t regret it.
