All your Christmas shopping needs in the one place - yes please and thank you, City of Perth!
Okay so I'll admit it, I'm the worst when it comes to getting Christmas shopping done early. I absolutely love buying presents for people, but I always somehow end up leaving it till the last minute and stress myself out on Christmas Eve running around finding the exact items I want to get for people. This year is no exception to that rule. December 19th and I'm still yet to hit the shops.
In an attempt to kick myself into line as well as inspire you with your own shopping, I've put together some of my favourite items from my favourite retailers in the City of Perth. As a last minute shopper I'm all about convenience, so popping into the City where I have literally every store I need (and then some!) to do all my Christmas shopping in one go is a god send!
There's no such thing as too many shoes (right?!)
Perfect for a sister or cousin, or even your Mum, a pair of shoes is probably the most fun item to purchase for someone this Christmas! As you all know by now, I have an insane shoe addiction and one of the biggest culprits for my ever growing shoedrobe is Topshop! The Topshop Topman stand alone store in Perth City is what shoe dreams are made of. Not only can you pick up on-trend clothes (including these ripped jeans), the selection of shoes is second to none! My favourites are laid out here and also on my feet (clearly black is my go to, hehe) but there's certainly a few more Topshop babies hiding in the shoedrobe, let me tell you!
SHOP the shoes at Topshop Topman, 207 Murray Street Mall, Perth
Everyone wants a NEW handbag for Christmas!
You know what I'm talking about, hehe. First up, my relationship with Oroton has been a long term one and it continues to grow with the launch of their amazing new Summer collection (so much so that I've already treated myself to the metallic and bucket bag babies already!). The Oroton store in the City is situated near the King St precinct, an area of the Perth City that has quickly become my favourite, overflowing with designer luxury and not to mention the cutest Christmas decorations of the City! Speaking of King St, a favourite of the strip, Cult Status, offers Perth's best selection of luxury goods - including 3.1 Phillip Lim and YSL featured here. Who doesn't want to receive a little bit of luxury for Christmas?! Boyfriend, I hope you're taking note ...
Luxury Skincare, the perfect stocking stuffer
I'm super picky when it comes to my choice of skincare, only ever opting for what I know is best for my skin and generally, what is organic as possible. It's worth it, I swear! When the Jurlique store opened in Perth City not that long ago, I was so excited. Some of my absolute favourite skincare products that I used religiously, now available on my doorstep! With an array of different products, they most definitely will have something to throw in the stocking of your Mum or Sister! They even have a pampering room where you can buy gift vouchers for the most incredible facials. This one is a no brainer.
SHOP Jurlique at Wesley Quarter, 97-101 William Street, Perth
Denim of dreams with Levis
If you've ever put a pair of Levis on your body you'll know what I'm talking about. Best. denim. EVER! If I woke up on Christmas morning with a new pair of Levis sitting under the tree, I couldn't tell you how happy I would be!
The Perth Levis store has the best selection of jeans, shorts and skirts so if you're looking for a new pair of jeans for that special someone, look no further! Available for both men and women, this is definitely a destination to get involved with for your Christmas shopping in the City!
SHOP Levis at Forrest Chase, 200 Murray Street, Perth
For the beauty junkie
There's no better place to find a present for that beauty junkie in your life (or maybe it's just yourself!?) than MECCA Cosmetica in Perth City. Not only is the store big, bright and beautiful, but the staff are so incredibly helpful and there's a product to suit any need and any budget. The gift of beauty products are not to be underrated and with so much to choose from, including skincare, makeup, candles and fragrances - add this one to your City of Perth Christmas shopping expedition! I know that I'll be stuffing a few stockings with some MECCA goodies.

The Homewares of all Homewares
You know what I'm talking about - none other than the king of homewares that is Pottery Barn and West Elm! My excitement levels were through the roof last year when Pottery Barn and West Elm opened in Perth City and to be honest, they still are. Perth, you're killing the game. With everything from home decor, frames, vases, cushions, decorative accessories - there's something for everyone. These little brass pieces and the marble accent side table are some of my favourite pieces in my house! A little Pottery Barn and West Elm under the tree never hurt nobody.
SHOP Pottery Barn and West Elm at 625 Hay Street, Perth

Okay so I'll be in the City of Perth for all my Christmas shopping (which I promise to start immediately)! See you guys there?!
