Its almost Xmas now and there are a few places that are fun for gourmet food shopping, especially at Christmas time.

David Jones sells all the things that can make a special dinner or occasion a spectacular one.

Champagne and Oysters always help with Xmas shopping.


Gourmet foods make great gifts and last for sometime, as well as add something special to your Xmas fare.

Gourmet Teas.


Luxury Fairy Floss


Buy a hamper or make up your own for gifts.


David Jones has a huge range of gourmet pastas and pasta sauces, jams and condiments, gourmet titbits to make your meal a little bit extra special.

Xmas Ham, a must.


There are traditional meats and creams and custards, Christmas Cake and pudding, wrapped pudding and Newcastle boiling pudding and hampers adorn the walls.

Christmas Cake.


Pudding anyone.


Bioling Puddings from the Newcastle Puddding Lady.


It doesn't actually cost a lot to buy a bottle of Moet. There is always the baby bottle that can give a sense of luxury. Or there are some fantastic Australian wines and champagnes to select from.

A touch of Champers.


You can always add a boutique beer.


A touch of Champagne, a boutique or Coopers Ale. There is even expensive water that can be given or consumed. There are a few good bottles of Grange Hermitage tucked away there too.

Luxury Water.


Cherries.


Cant forget the fresh fruit; strawberries, cherries or fruit salad.

Strawberries.


Fruit Salad


After all this, there is still the turkey and a few babbles to go. Hopefully a few gifts have been found and at least some Xmas foods bought to be consumed on the 25th December. (Often too, the Xmas stock is reduced just before Xmas, as well as at the great January sales).

And if the journey home seems a great trek, you can always stay for coffee or a bit to eat at Sensory Lab, but that's another experience all together.
