Last-minute love – let Harbour Town sort out your Christmas gifting woes

There are two kinds of people in this world – there's those thoughtful folk who purchase (and wrap) Christmas presents well in advance, and then there’s the rest of us utter fools who take a shockingly cavalier ‘smash it out the day before’ attitude.

Enter Harbour Town, the outlet-shopping haven packed with rad brands at wallet-friendly prices. The best part? You don’t have to wait until Boxing Day sales to pounce on some serious bargains. If you still have some names left to tick off your nice list, we've rounded up some of the best deals going down in the precinct at the moment. more
