Don’t know where to start Christmas shopping? Stroll Edward Street Brisbane in search of goodies for your bestie, boo and you

Christmas is next week, folks, and we are starting to get shopper’s anxiety. Quell your worries with a trip to inner-city shopping strip Edward Street Brisbane, which boats a top-tier line-up of luxurious brands that make festive gift giving easy. Whether you are on the hunt for your smartly dressed mate, something mind-blowing for your special someone or you’re looking to pamper yourself with some serene spa treatments, this shopping precinct has you sorted!

For the dapper man in your life …
One thing for sure is that men are notoriously difficult to buy for when it comes to Christmas presents. Once you’ve gifted them socks, whisky and barbecue accessories three times over, you know it’s time to spice things up. Snag them something special this festive season at Edward Street boutique Mitchell Ogilvie, which is a treasure chest of luxe menswear from some of the world’s leading bespoke brands. More supremely tailored men’s suits and fashion await at M.J. Bale, where you can pick up some top-notch fits for your beau. For the beach-loving bloke, Scotch & Soda is where it’s at for sea-inspired shirts (check out this neat Hawaiian number) and levelled up boardies. Stylish menswear slinger Canali has also got summer-ready looks in spades, as well as a clutch of crackin’ accessories like this goat leather cross-body bag.

For your chic bestie …
If your best friend deserves the world (of course they do), then they also deserve a pretty damn good Christmas present, too. For the fashionista friends, Scandinavian brand Cos is stocked with plenty of sustainable and stylish wardrobe staples and accessories, whilst Dinosaur Designs is brimming with dazzling handcrafted resin jewellery and homeware designs – just look at these fetching moon drop earrings. Super lavish gifts can be found at Designer Archives, where brands like Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana and Dior line the shelves. Mates that love a good heel will surely happy cry with a present from shoe haven Peter Sheppard, and we think these elevated olive-hued beauties are worth stepping out for.

For an unforgettable gift …
Looking for something special to gift the gem in your life? Hit up A.G Designer Jeweller and peep its eye-catching collection of diamond-decorated pieces (one of our faves is this diamond opera necklace) for the special person you’re shopping for. The ultimate wrist accessory awaits at The Hourglass, a watch boutique boasting a stellar range of Rolex and Patek Philippe time tellers. Opulence abounds at Cartier, where gift givers can pick up fine jewellery, watches, bridal sets, accessories and fragrances for their loved ones. Christmas shopping is made seriously easy and extra elegant at fashion house Hermès, where chic belts and silk scarves are aplenty.

For a little mid-shop self care …
Make like Mariah Carey this Christmas and make your own wishes come true – yep, we’re talking about a little self-care. Take a break from shopping and make a pitstop at City Winery’s Edward Street Cellar Door for a glass of the good stuff and while you’re there pick up some top-notch grape juice to take home too! If R&R is what you’re after then treat yourself to a blow-dry at hairdressing salon Toni & Guy and have your mane perfectly manicured before your silly season meet ups. To add some opulence to your beauty regime, shop up a storm at Origani and snap up some luxurious (and natural!) skincare and makeup goodies. For good skin quick-sticks, we suggest popping in to Simply Laser to treat your pores to a hydra facial treatment or up your brow game with a brow lamination. You deserve it.
