Christmas gift ideas for summer

Christmas has crept up on us once again, so we asked some of our staff for their top Christmas gift ideas. No matter who you are shopping for, there is something on our list that will suit you!

Carly Finch, Group Marketing Manager

I love being social and living my best life, so my Christmas gift ideas are perfect for anyone who loves the outdoors!

I can’t live without my Apple watch; who doesn’t love a beach walk and what’s the point if I’m not working towards my step goal.

If you’re looking for something a little cheaper; I can’t go past a good quality bluetooth speaker (I have a JBL Flip Essential), an insulated picnic basket (support local at Madam’s Handmade), or a nice beach towel (Country Road is my pick).

Leonard Faust, Executive Chef

When I’m not spending time in the kitchen at work, I enjoy cooking for the family in the backyard. If you’re shopping for the man in your life, a smoker BBQ will keep him entertained for hours, and you will eat like royalty!

Helen Smit, HR Manager

I haven’t been able to get away so I want to create a holiday experience in my own home! I’d love a hammock, a good book, and I’ve got my eye on these stemless wine glasses (stemless feels safest!). If the sun was shining, that would be even better, but if I have this set up, I’ll be happy either way.

Sam Dick, Operations Manager

I’m originally from the Gold Coast and since relocating to Port Stephens, I have been dying to go surfing but it’s been a while so I don’t have the gear. A new surfboard would be an epic Christmas present, Sanbah Surf Shop in Newcastle has a huge range of boards!

Khiarni Williams, Group Marketing Coordinator

I’m all about eco-friendly and practical gifts, that’s why I think a Hydro-flask is the perfect gift! It’s great for water, smoothies and even a sneaky seltzer at the carols. I’m also a coffee addict so a reusable keep cup would make my day if I unwrapped it on Christmas morning. Pottery for the Planet makes the cutest ceramic coffee cups that will make you the most aesthetic person at your local café!
