The Perfect Christmas Gift Ideas For When You Have Absolutely No Idea What To Get
It’s our favourite, or most dreaded, time of year – Christmas.
Aside from the mad scramble to organise family lunch and get your holiday plans underway, there is an even bigger dilemma: picking out the perfect gift.
By about now, you’re probably scratching your head wondering what on earth you’re going to get for everyone, and given we don’t have long until the big day (panic intensifies) it might be time to join the mad rush of shopgoers on the hunt for presents.
But never fear! Because we are here to make that present hunt a little easier with our Christmas gift guide for just about anyone in your life.
For Him: Virtual Reality
Skip the generic gift card giving and blow his mind with the gift of Virtual Reality.
Ready Team One
When it comes to VR in Perth, Ready Team One is definitely raising the bar. They have developed the only Hollywood-style full-body tracking system in Australia (and just a handful in the world) that will transform your entire body into a video game controller – right down to your fingertips!
They can step right into the action with alien invasions, a zombie apocalypse or a guns-blazing war in their 200 square metres free-roam VR arena.
Let them immerse completely in a surreal multi-player experience at Zero Latency.
They have a growing list of epic experiences that can all host up to 8 players, from post-apocalyptic game shows to secret military space stations, zombie survival and island escapes with the recent launch of Far Cry on VR. They’ll be spoilt for choice.
For Her: Jewellery
There’s a reason diamonds are a girl’s best friend.
Dazzle her in gold and silver with meaningful pieces from By Charlotte.
Each of their collections is crafted to perfection, bringing simplistic beauty and intricate detail. The dainty necklaces will be a gorgeous addition to her collection and she’ll fall in love with every item.
Pieces are inscribed with uplifting affirmations for positive vibes and self-love, and we totally adore everything about this Australian brand.
