Do you love Christmas as much as I do?
The planning, preparation, gift buying and wrapping! Getting into the Christmas spirit and immersing yourself in all things festive. Does that sound like you!
Does the thought of traipsing around shopping centres searching for the perfect gift make you want to run and hide until New Years! How about lining up for hours on end to get a photo with Santa or the tedious task of wrapping presents.
Well I’m here with great news for everyone! It’s such fantastic news that I had to put my thoughts into a jingle. Not just any jingle but Jingle Bells!
( sometimes I’m surprised by my creativity! )
Where was I …….
Oh boy, this concept is so cool that even the most Grinch like folk are bound to be impressed!
So what do you need to know?
I was lucky enough to attend the Myer / Kids Business #Giftorium event on Friday, held at Myer Perth.
What fun I had! Not only did I hear all about the great services Myer has on offer for the festive season, I was also treated to a delicious Sweet Buffet Table from The Sweet Cart and very very generously gifted products and vouchers to use on the day. Another highlight for myself was finally meeting in person beautiful bloggers Vicki from The Fashionable Mum and Raychael from MsMystery Case who I have been chatting with on Social Media the past few months. I was also able to meet other Perth bloggers and put faces to names which was great.
This guy was awesome but it was tricky to get good photo’s on my iPhone!
There is a lot happening in Myer stores nationally with the launch of #Giftorium. From 8 November all Myer stores will schedule a host of activities for the family on weekends and selected dates including fun stuff like magicians, tea & coffee sampling and wine tasting! There is Personal Shopping available with trained Gifticians and Producticians to ensure you find the perfect gift and the Myer website can guide customers through services available such as Same Day Elf Delivery and the Gift Finder.
One of the best drawcards in my opinion is Book a Time to Meet Santa! My kids are older now so meeting Santa isn’t a priority but I do remember how awful it can be waiting in line to meet the big guy and have a photo, hopefully this service brings the fun back to meeting Santa without having grumpy tired kids!
Other useful services include All Wrapped Up gift registry, gift ordering on iPads when stock isn’t in store, Shop & Drop so you don’t have to carry your parcels around and a Shop Wrap & Delivery Service. There are #Giftoriums in all of Myer’s 67 stores so no one misses out on the Christmas cheer!
The last thing I want to mention is the 12 Christmas Themes for those who have no clue what to buy! Myer has just made your life a whole lot easier, here are the themes
- Dapper Dad
- Miracle Mum
- Trendy Young Things ( gifts for teens and young adults )
- Kids Cubby
- Paws Corner ( for your furry or feathered friends! )
- Hop, Skip Juice

For more detailed information on the services available head on over to the Myer website here and see for yourself!
More fun from the event!
I will definitely be visiting the #Giftorium again. I love heading into the city as Christmas draws closer and this year Myer is all about fun, families and bringing back the magic of Christmas.
What do you prefer when it comes to Christmas shopping? Braving the shopping center crowds or buying online? Personally I’ve done both and honestly don’t have a preference. Online shopping is great if there is something you want and can’t get it in store but I love the atmosphere of Christmas shopping ( crazy I know! )
