While browsing Chillax Market‘s thoughtfully curated wares this week, we unearthed some winning finds that will leave your nearest and dearest grinning like the Cheshire Cat on Christmas morning. From colourful, quirky home furnishings to fabulous accessories, there’s something here for everyone. Click through the gallery below for all sorts of gift inspiration for ladies, blokes and little ones.
Once you’ve snapped up the perfect pressie, the challenge is on to make that little fella look as pretty as possible in serious gift wrap. Fortunately for you, Chillax Market has a range of delicate wrapping paper and accessories by Paperworks that will ensure your gifts stand out under the tree.
Planning a festive bash? Red Carousel’s Christmas Party in a Box ($120) is a saviour. The stylish bundle contains red and green décor like paper cups, disposable wooden cutlery, plastic drinking mason jars with daisy cut lids, and chevron paper bags to pack away some sweeties for guests.
For the decor, flood your home with adorable ornaments and knick-knacks from around the market – there are oodles of jolly Santas, cheery snowmen, gleaming baubles and sparkly decorations to choose from.
Want guests to relive that cosy, by-the-fire feeling? Sniff out Cochine’s Juniper & Ginger range ($80-$85). The warm, enticing scent is a blend of fresh Juniper, sweet and spicy ginger, invigorating eucalyptus, and relaxing bergamot, clove and patchouli.
Over at Flower Bar, the nimble-fingered team are busy creating elegant, vibrantly coloured Christmas wreaths and floral arrangements that will flatter your festive trimmings.
Before the big night, why not go all out with a chic new hairdo and striking manicure? Chillax Salon is the perfect pampering spot, and offers highlights, haircuts, luxurious treatments, bouncy blow-outs, manicures and pedicures (all for surprisingly affordable prices!).
Aside from all the wonderful goodies on sale, Chillax Market will be holding two rollickin’ Christmas parties to liven up those shopping sprees. On 28-30 November, their Christmas Fete will feature a drawing workshop by designer Antonija Gros for artistic kiddos, plus a mini fashion show for budding young fashionistas. Purchases of $40 will also get you a glass of bubbly (… mmm… bubbly). The Christmas Soiree (12-14 December) will include a visit from St Nick himself on 14 December, who will drop by to chat and snap photos with all the kiddlywinks. There will also be a Christmas workshop, which will see adults swotting up their table decorating skills, while restless kids can dance up a storm at the children’s disco from 1-5pm.
Ready to dive into Christmas shopping mania and festivities? Chillax Market is open from 9am-7pm at Level 3, The Grandstand at Turf City, 200 Turf Club Road.
