How to give the perfect gift this Christmas

Gift giving is hard enough! Thanks to our friends at Adelaide’s luxurious shopping precinct Adelaide Central Plaza, the Fireflies team have come how to give the perfect gift this Christmas!

Don’t worry we’re here to help, here is a quick guide to help you sort through the many options and pick the perfect pressie.


No, really! Sit down and make a list of all things your friend is interested in. Spend a good few minutes really thinking about it. If your friend loves Chanel, likes to read and has a shoe fetish, a book about Chanel and a gift voucher for the David Jones shoe emporium will go down a treat!


Think about the presentation, get creative with the wrapping and packaging. Create a scavenger hunt with clues where the giftee will find a little gift and clue at each location. Make it beautiful or fun, if you have spent the time to make the gift an event your mate will feel truly treasured.


Is your person a super busy business savvy entrepreneur? Give a gift they can use; how about a gorgeous diary, beautiful pen, candle or a frame to put on their desk. Has your friend just booked a trip overseas? How about a leather passport travel folder or unique luggage tag. There many products to make our lives easier and sometimes we don’t treat ourselves to the little things.


No, not like that! Most people have a Facebook and Instagram account, have they liked a product or tagged you into something they are wishing for?  Look at the pages they like, or stores they frequent to give you a better insight into their wishlist.


Think personal, special and unique! If your person is selfless and never gets a chance to spoil themselves, why not spoil them rotten. Give a piece of jewellery they could never afford, a rich decadent hand cream, a designer notebook or a leather tote.
