The Perfect Christmas for Everyone

Christmas Gift Guide

Whether it’s food, fun, fashion or fitness your Christmas revolves around, Junction Fair has everything YOU need for the perfect festive season. We’ve been putting together the ultimate gift guide for you, so you can have the perfect Christmas.

The Sophisticated Homemaker

We all know someone who’s home is a spectacular masterpiece, straight out of the pages of a magazine. And Christmas is when they shine. From perfect floral arrangements to festive décor, they’ve thought of it all. If your Christmas is all about the finer details, Junction Fair has everything you need. Put away the paper plates and plastic cutlery and head straight for The Essential Ingredient. They’ve got all the essentials for hosting a Christmas crowd, to cutlery, crockery, serving dishes, glassware and cookware to beautiful linens. 

Looking for a different way to add a festive pop of colour to the house, without using synthetic multi-coloured tinsels and bright lights? Try a fresh floral arrangement or a festive wreath from Still Life Floral Art. Add a special touch to your gifts with unique wrapping paper and embellishments from Honest Paper. They have a stunning range of artfully designed wrapping papers, gift bags and belli-bands, plus all the bells and whistles. Seriously. They sell bells – and all the ribbon, twine, gift tags and greeting cards your heart could ever desire. 

Christmas Fitness Fanatic

The Fitness Fanatic  

Christmas is all about gorging ourselves on glazed leg ham, fresh prawns, pavlova… and don’t forget the champagne! Stop counting those calories, put down the protein shake and step away from the dumbbells. For a few days at least. Calories don’t count at Christmas, right? However, these couple of days of gluttonous over eating and relaxing, are a great excuse to hit your fitness goals beforehand. 

Why not a new fitness routine at 12RND Fitness? They will get your heart pumping and blood flowing, with dynamic, fun and results based body workouts. Get the most from your workout, with some extra help from Best Body Supplements. Head in and talk to their friendly and experienced team, who will help you find the best supplements to maximise yourself. They also have a great range of nutritious, ready to eat meals and snacks as well as cool workout apparel. Buzz Protein Bar has a delicious range of treats, shakes and acai bowls that will satisfy those cravings but won’t ruin your diet. If you insist on keeping it healthy this Christmas grab some tasty, chocolatey spiders, to share, no one will even realise they are healthy.

Christmas Fashion Forward

The Fashion Forward

Whether it’s for the office Christmas party, a festive gathering with friends or the big day itsself, you are going to need a new outfit. Junction Fair has all your fashion needs covered. Ladies, for the perfect outfit this Christmas Privvy has a huge range of summery dresses, bright floral skirts and gorgeous tops. If you are after something a bit more formal pop into Zeblu, where you can pick up some cute accessories too. They also have lots of great summer vacation clothing, you’d be silly not to take advantage of. For guys and gals of all ages, Sandbah’s surf fashion makes a great Chrissy outfit. Their surf, skate and fashion range will also make great pressies – you can’t go past a new pair of swimmers for a hot Aussie Christmas!

Christmas Beauty Babe

The Beauty Guru 

Pampering, polish and perfume are always a great option for a Christmas gift. Junction Fair has everything you need to make a special someone feel fresh and revitalised… even if that special someone is you. For something totally luxurious Savant Apothecary offers a range of plant based, handmade skincare products that will leave anyone feeling totally pampered. If you aren’t sure what to get they have a great range of packs that will make a perfect Chrissy present. Now you haven’t really pampered someone without a mani pedi, so grab a gift card from Get Polished. While you’re there why not get yourself a festive set of nails or grab a few bottles of polish for stocking stuffers? Top that all off with a signature scent from TerryWhite Chemmart and your pampering is complete!        

Christmas Entertainer

The Ultimate Christmas Entertainer 

The piece de resistance. The main event. What we’ve all been waiting for. The Christmas day spread! No matter your skills in the kitchen Junction Fair has something for everybody to create the perfect Christmas Feast. First things first, smoked leg ham, classic roast or big BBQ – or maybe all three? The Pickled Big Butchery has all the meat you’ll need. If you’re feeding a small army, don’t stress about what to get, grab one of the Pickled Pig Packs.  

Tradition is great, but rather than eating the same meal year in, year out, why not spice it up by creating your own spice rub? Scoop Wholefoods has every spice under the sun. Coat your roast meat in it or sprinkle over your veggies to season. While you’re there grab some dried fruits, to pop into your Christmas pudding. Don’t forget a mixture of nuts and seeds to add crunch and texture to those tired salads and the classic cheese board. Take your dishes to the next level by making a dressing or tossing your salads in an infused olive oil from The Essential Ingredient. If you aren’t too keen on making your own Christmas pud, pick one up while you’re in store. 

If you need a few more bits and pieces to pull it all together, grab a couple of crispy baguettes from Bakers Delight. These will come in handy for sides, canapes, platters and stuffing. Grab some Sushi Koo sushi and rice paper rolls, they make a perfect appetiser but won’t ruin your appetite. Complete your dessert degustation with thick and creamy gelato from Popolo and a few decadent doughies from Doughheads.
