Well gift giving is a tough gig sometimes. You may not know the persons tastes completely. Or they are a bit fussy. Maybe they seem to have it all.

But there is one gift that will hit the spot every time, a gift made in Melbourne or about Melbourne. So this is my secret to you; give something extra special and show off your city at the same time.

And I have found 5 great shops to buy, buy, buy everything Melbourne or crafted by Australian Designers.

MelbourneStyle - Owned and run by Maree Coote.

This is a fabulous shop in South Melbourne on Clarendon Street. It is stocked to the brim with stunning artworks, jewellery, books, ceramics, pillows, furniture, lamps, and much much more.
And Maree Coote also stocks her "Melbourne Book" with has collected several gold Medals. You are surrounded by her artwork that is both funny and thought-provoking. I claimed a Dame Edna portrait which is priceless. She stocks many local artists work, so the selection is massive.

Angus & Celeste - Therry Street, Queen Victoria Market

If it is housewares or ceramics you are after, this is the shop for you. They are renowned for their minimalist, modern, designer porcelain. And they have contemporary gifts for plant and art lovers alike. It looks fairly simple from the outside, but don't be fooled, the inside is a standout.
