Stress free gift shopping
So much of my time seems to be spent stressing over what is the perfect gift for someone, it's just an unreasonably difficult task. It often feels like there's nothing they could need and unless they are a blessedly honest friend, it can be tricky to figure out what they want. However, good news- there are plenty of shops that are getting more and more creative in their mission to provide exactly the gift that will impress. Below is a simple compilation of fantastic gifts you can buy right here in Perth. These items have been selected from equally fantastic Perth gift shops, and include ideas for a wide range of people and occasions.
A beautiful and planet friendly choice, these bamboo utensil sets are 100% biodegradable, and the prints are just so lovely.

Custom Fire Pit- Tavoli As the weather gets cooler, a fire pit is the perfect gift for any homeowner. Tavoli creates, among other things, customised fire pits. For a quote, head over to their website.
Orbitkey For your friend who has everything, friend who is hard to buy for, or friend who is always one step ahead- the orbitkey is a niche product that looks attractive, and fulfils a function too. For more info see the website- it essentially hold your keys in place with a single leather loop- no more jangling of loose keys. It can be purchased both at The Good Store in Vic Park, or First Avenue in Kalamunda.
Scratch Travel Map, Australian Geographic It's an idea you might have pinned on Pinterest, but you can actually get a scratch away map of the world. This 85x55cm map can be used to mark off the places you've travelled, and would make a great gift for any friend who loves travelling- we all have at least one. Available at the Australian Geographic.
Also Comes in Rocketship Style as Well!
Carrot Cutlery Available from Pigeonhole, in Perth. Granted, these are not the gift for everyone, but a cute and quirky gift for younger recipients...or anyone who particularly loves carrots.
Stow Away Travel Kit This simple present is another great one for those lovers of travel, or anyone who needs a break. Also available from Pigeonhole.
So I hope this list was helpful in the ever stressful quest of finding the perfect gift. And don't forget if you haven't seen what you like, the shops mentioned in this article are bound to have plenty more practical, beautiful, or just plain weird products.
