The festive season has arrived in Brisbane and that means the invitations to end-of-year celebrations are beginning to roll in! Whether you’re shopping for a new party outfit or ticking names off your gift-giving list, Edward Street Brisbane has made the festive season effortless thanks to the announcement of their luxury personal shopping concierge! Book in time with them now to get your Christmas shopping all wrapped up.

From hard-to-shop-for relatives to extra special gifts for your one true love, Edward Street Brisbane’s personal shopping concierge will guide you through their luxury retailers to help you discover the perfect gift. With a diverse range of luxury retailers catering for all interests and passions (fine watches, hand-tailored suits and boutique homewares are only the beginning!), an afternoon at Edward Street Brisbane is the easiest way to take care of everyone on your gift list this festive season.

To help you take the guesswork out of Christmas gift giving, we’ve partnered up with Edward Street Brisbane to put together gift recommendations to please everyone in your life, from your best friend to your favourite aunt. And because it wouldn’t be the silly season without something special for yourself, we’ve even put together a few recommendations of gifts to take home just for you!

Your Friend

From late night phone calls to weekend brunches, your best friend is there for you every single day. Christmas is the perfect time to treat them to something indulgent and special, and to thank them for being a wonderful friend. Gifting them with an on-trend accessory that they can wear every day is a wonderfully personal way to say thank you and to make them feel special. Plus, it has the added bonus of making them think of you every time they use it!

This quirky-and-cute, limited edition, Italian leather, Hugo Boss Jeremyville backpack is at the top of our wishlist and is sure to impress. The matching Hugo Boss key ring will complete the look! If they are the kind of friend that never turns down a beach trip, get them ready for summer with Orlebar swim shorts and a new set of Optiko sunglases. For something sparkling, these Hardy Brothers stack rings will make your friend feel extra loved this festive season.

1. Roc Pool Mid-Length Swim Shorts $475, Orlebar Brown. 2. 18ct Rose Gold Diamond Quadrant $5,999 18ct Rose Gold Twist $1,499 18ct Rose Gold Brushed Octagon $1,499, Hardy Brothers 3. Moscot crystal Lemtosh TT sunglasses $697, Optiko. 4. Holiday Keyring $149, Hugo Boss. 5. Holiday Backpack $899, Hugo Boss. All products available on Edward Street Brisbane.

Your Family

Shopping for family can be difficult. As people you have probably given gifts to since you were a child, it can be difficult to strike the perfect balance between practical and indulgent. After all, what are you possibly meant to buy someone who, when asked, says they don’t need anything?

There are a few foolproof gifts that are guaranteed to delight the receiver when they unwrap them on Christmas morning. For the gentleman in your family, Mitchell Ogilvie has a fantastic selection of toiletries and fragrances that he’ll love. Whether you choose to update their accessories with a stunning set of Cartier cufflinks, the impressive NOMOS Glashütte Club watch from The Hour Glass, or Hardy Brothers stack rings, or level-up their home dining with fine kitchenware from Le Creuset, shopping for everyone in the family is easy at Edward Street Brisbane. When in doubt, swing by Mayfield Chocolates for delectable treats that will complete any gift.

1. Male grooming set from $59.95, Mitchell Ogilvie. 2. Nomos Glashütte, Siren White $4,530, The Hour Glass. 3. Wax Seal Motif Cuff Links $670, Cartier; 4. 18ct White Gold Pyramid $,1499 18ct White Gold Quadrant $5,999 Zircon Knife Edge $499, Hardy Brothers. 5. 350ml Mug set of 6 $395, Le Creuset. 6. Chocolate Christmas Gift box selection from $17.50, Mayfield Chocolates. All products available on Edward Street Brisbane.

Your Partner

When it comes to shopping for your significant other, it can be easy to overwhelm yourself with options. While weekend escapes and date night and Brisbane’s newest bar are wonderful experiences to share together, we also like the idea of sharing a tangible gift that they can hold and think of you when they use.

Gifting them designer staple-pieces that they can love for years to come is a great gift, as it may not be something they often splurge on for themselves – Ermenegildo Zegna and Gant are our go-to labels. Alternatively, a beautiful new signature scent (such as these picks from Mitchell Ogilvie and Cartier) is a romantic way to remind them of you every single day, while a luxurious Montblanc pen is a practical yet stylish gift that they will love. Oh, and you can never go wrong with jewellery! Tag Heuer has a stunning selection of pieces that they will treasure for years to come.

1. Acqua Di Parma Colonia Essenza Eau De Cologne natural spray $144, Mitchell Ogilvie. 2. Cartier Carat Eau De Parfum, Spray $134, Cartier. 3. Meisterstück Platinum-Coated Classique Ballpoint Pen $590, Montblanc. 4. Carrera Lady $6,250, Tag Heuer. 5. Pelle Tessuta Card Case $805, Ermenegildo Zegna. 6. Regular Linen Shirt $199, GANT. All products available on Edward Street Brisbane.

Yourself

Not only is the festive season an opportunity to celebrate your loved ones, it’s also a chance to celebrate yourself! After all, you work hard and deserve to treat yourself every now and then. If you want to celebrate your successes and indulge yourself a little bit, make sure to pick up something extra special for yourself. Whether it’s a luxurious Cartier watch that you’ve been dreaming of, a cute new clutch or purse from Gucci, Cartier or Ermenegildo Zegna, or stylish new Optiko frames, there’s no better way to wrap up your Christmas shopping.

If you want to wrap it up and put it under the tree as a gift from Santa Claus, we promise we won’t tell!

1. Ballon Blanc De Cartier Watch $17,500, Cartier. 2. Santos De Cartier Small Credit/Business Card Holder $370, Cartier. 3. Arli small shoulder bag $1980, Gucci. 4. Flat Zip Pouch $730, Ermenegildo Zegna 5. Garret Leight tortoise sunglasses $527, Optiko. 6. Alma En Pena Abbie sandal $269.95, Peter Sheppard. All products available on Edward Street Brisbane.
