Christmas is all but here – don’t worry, it snuck up on us too – and with it comes the sometimes daunting task of gift shopping! But fear not, regardless of who’s on your nice list this year, the selection at Norton Plaza is your one stop destination for local presents this year. Check out our gift ideas to get the ball rolling, especially if you’re stuck on that one person in particular.

Glamorous Gabrielle

Glamorous Gabrielle lives her best life. She spends more time at the shopping centre than she does at home and loves to be pampered wherever and whenever possible. Treat her to a pedicure and manicure at TC Pro Nails or a voucher for a specialist treatment from Toni & Guy.

Organised Oliver

Organised Oliver runs like a Swiss watch, to the minute with perfect precision. Whenever a social event needs to be planned or your home needs a de-clutter, Oliver is your guy. Your one-stop for Oliver’s stationary is Nextra, with a huge range of diaries and calendars on offer that will have him colour-coding till next Christmas. If he’s already sorted on that front (which is highly likely), the team at Howards Storage World will have all homeware his heart desires!

Fussy Fiona

Fussy Fiona has a unique style that no-one can quite put their finger on. Her direct line of conversation means she’s not afraid to speak up, and she will certainly let you know if she doesn’t like your gift. But don’t stress, give the gift of shared experience and take her out for dinner at one of the many great options within the dining precinct. Grab something sweet from Alegria Lane, a nutritious and filling burger from Grill’d, or non-stop sushi at Sushi Maru.

Grinch Greg

Grinch Greg is the friend that we all love to hate. He doesn’t understand nor appreciate Christmas and will do anything to avoid celebrating. He doesn’t like to give or receive gifts and will do almost anything to avoid your festive cheer. Our best suggestion is food, preferably sweet treats. Coles will have you covered there, with lollies, chocolate and other goodies sure to satisfy the most intense cravings! Bakers Delight also have a fantastic range of delicious cakes for a more refined palate. If that fails, get rid of Greg!

Stressed Susan

Stressed Susan is most of us during the rat race that is the Christmas period. She has a to-do list a mile long and understandably struggles to see the light at the end of the tunnel. She struggles to find time for herself and is running around on mum duty for the majority of her days and weekends. Stressed Susan deserves a break and a speciality massage from Massage Link, gift her with a voucher so she can unwind in style. Alternatively, we’re sure Susan would love a Vintage Cellars care-package – arguably the most fun way to relax!

Terrible Two’s Tom

Terrible Two’s Tom still doesn’t really understand the concept of Christmas. All he knows is there are two days a year where he gets to tear up all the paper with surprise toys underneath, and one of them is coming up! Stop by Berkelouw Books to shop the wide range of children’s books and toys – you’re bound to find something that will divert his eyes away from the screen. With a great selection of both fiction and non-fiction, there’s sure to be something there to get their little minds ticking over during the holidays!

Whether you have an Organised Oliver in your life or a Glamorous Gabrielle, Norton Plaza is here to take the stress out of your shopping and share the gift of giving.
