Something for everyone on your list
My friend likes to do her Christmas shopping using the 'band-aid removal' method – getting it over quickly. I prefer to procrastinate, picking up presents last minute. If you're like me, head to the Fortitude Valley Twilight Christmas Markets on Friday, December 21, 2012 from 5pm to 9pm.

The Fortitude Valley Markets, also known as the Valley Markets or the Brunswick Street Mall Markets, are well known amongst locals and tourists alike. Held every Saturday and Sunday from 8am to 4pm, these eclectic markets are renowned as the place to pick up a bargain including vintage fashion, jewellery, accessories, art, books, vinyl, and more.

At the Twilight Christmas Markets, you should be able to find something suitable for everyone on your list. With your Christmas shopping complete, de-stress with a massage or find out what the new year holds at one of the market's clairvoyants or card readers. Then relax with a refreshment at one of the Valley's restaurants or bars, and spread some Christmas cheer.
