Christmas Shopping Guide: 15 Original Ideas


Tis the season to be... stressed? We get it.

Whether you’re on cooking duties this year, yet to tackle the shops or simply have a back-to-back (social) calendar, Christmas can turn into a very un-merry time of year. 

Luckily, we’re here to help.

Avoid shopping centre mayhem and get your loved ones a unique gift you won’t find anywhere else.

Here are 15 original Christmas shopping ideas from yours truly, the Original Eumundi Markets.

Pumpkin Jetty Australia

Finding a gift for the little ones in your life is simple - toys. But what do you get the munchkin who has it all?

A toy for their toys.

That’s right. The tiny tents by Pumpkin Jetty Australia provide hours of pretend play for boys and girls.

The perfect addition for soft toys, Barbie dolls, farm animals, dinosaurs, cars and whatever else little imaginations can think of.

Handmade right here in the Sunshine Coast, each tiny tent is unique, portable and built to last.

Pam Fisher Pet Gear

If you’re one of those people who wraps a Christmas present up for their dog, we like you.

Our four-legged family members deserve some festive fun too - which is where Pam Fisher steps in.

Pam’s range of dog harnesses, matching leads, pet carry bags and winter coats are the cutest things to wrap your furry friend in.

Choose from a large selection of colours, patterns and styles to suit your pups’ style.

For a gift that’ll keep them guessing, check out Puzzling Puzzles.

The name says it all.

Noosa Surf Clocks

Know someone who’s always late to the dinner table?

Husbands, we’re looking at you.

Give your man a Noosa Surf Clock for his man cave.

Inspired by the surf and handcrafted in Noosa, there’s plenty of sizes, shapes and colours to choose from.

If you’re looking for something particular, chat to Tommy for a custom design. If it’s surf-inspired, he can do it.

The Salty Pixel

This one’s for the beach lovers.

The coastal scenes captured by The Salty Pixel are photos worth double tapping for.

The man behind the lens is Damian and his landscape photography gravitates to the ocean capturing the ever-evolving imagery from the land and sea.

For a beautiful present that’ll inspire, check out Damian’s latest work.

Silver Glass Fusion

For major brownie points with the mother-in-law, wrap up a unique kiln formed glass bowl from Silver Glass Fusion.

The fusion of contrasting colours makes each bowl a great conversation starter at dinner.

If the gift gets 10/10 (we know it will) keep in mind the matching tableware such as platters and ornaments for next year!

Swingz and Thingz

This stall is a kids’ dream. Hanging swings, hammocks, teepees, rope ladders and cradles - all full of colour and fun.
