♥ Last minute gift ideas from Perth businesses? We’ve got you sorted! Image by Boris Pavlikovsky.

Left your gift shopping to the last minute again? Don’t worry we’ve all been there! Christmas / holiday shopping can be super stressful, especially for those hard-to-buy-for friends and family who already seem to have everything!

Our solution? Gift cards! But not a boring old Coles / Myer gift card, we love giving our friends and family gift cards that help to support local Perth businesses – and in turn make THEIR holiday season even better too.

But where to buy from? Well, that’s why you are reading this article, right? Here is the ultimate list of our favorite Perth businesses you can purchase the perfect gift-card from – some wellness-y, others less so – to help you have a stress-free Christmas this year!

Fringe World

Probably the ultimate gift for Fringe fanatics, a Fringe voucher could mean a comedy show, a dramatic play, a musical spectacular, a scary sea-container experience, or whatever your giftee chooses to see for the upcoming 2022 Fringe season. You could even gift a Fringe Friends subscription voucher! Tickets & gift cards available to purchase here.

Coffeefusion

Do you have a caffeine addict in your life? Coffeefusion is an Online Coffee roastery which places an emphasis on learning about coffee and how to get the best out of your coffee at home. Why not perk up their day with a Coffeefusion Barista 101 course so they can perfect making their own coffee at home?

If you are feeling super generous, you can also gift a prepaid coffee subscription that you can select for 3, 6, or 12 deliveries of delicious, locally roasted coffee. There’ll be plenty of caffeine-induced love from the recipient coming your way with this one!

♥ Dreamy Darcy, one of the fantastic instructors at Bike Bar!

Bike Bar

For the uninitiated, Bike Bar is a cardio party! These high-energy and fun classes would be perfect for those exercise addicts in your life who live for group fitness. For those who like to mix it up, Bike Bar now has 4 different styles of classes on offer, with the new BB Tone, BB Aerobics, BB Yoga and the OG BB Ride. They are located in Applecross and Claremont and you can grab gift vouchers for each studio here to help your friends get started on their 2022 resolutions: Claremont or Applecross!

♥The Empowered Centre

Empowered Centre

A gift card for the Empowered Centre in Midland is the ultimate treat for those who love to try new things! This fitness center has a great range of unique classes, many of which you can’t find anywhere else in perth. From aerial yoga, bungee fitness, fusion yoga, Kangoo fit, and aerial hoop classes to name a few, you’ll find the perfect class for the fitness enthusiast who is always craving a new thrill. You can buy gift cards for class passes or memberships in store or they can post them out to you, find their contact information here.

♥ 🤤 🤤 🤤

Get Chunky

Get Chunky is the ultimate destination for those with a sweet tooth. New locations are popping up all over the place, so your lucky giftee won’t have to travel far to enjoy some sweet cookie goodness – they even have vegan options. You can buy gift cards in store at their Mount Lawley, Vic Park or their new Freo stores, and while you are there, why not enjoy a cheeky cookie yourself? View locations here.

♥ The Jungle Body Tribe

The Jungle Body Tribe

Jungle Body is probably the most fun you can have while getting fit! I mean, where else can you box to Beyonce, squat to Salt n Pepa or shake it to Shakira?!

All fitness levels are encouraged as just FOUR moves are used per track and they also give you lower intensity alternatives in case it’s a move that doesn’t work for you! Plus, the work-outs are in the dark, so no one can see if you accidentally go left instead of right (been there, done that!).

There are Jungle Body classes popping up all over the place, but the most central (and my personal fave) is The Jungle Body Tribe who run their sexy sessions out of Vic Park and Leederville. These classes would be perfect for anyone, I love going with my besties, mum, and sisters. You can buy class passes as a gift here.

♥ Pretzels as far as the eye can see…

Pretzel

For those that love a little snacky-snack – and lets be real, that’s pretty much all of us – look no further for gifts than Pretzel. These pretty-as-a-picture pastel pink stores have been popping up all over Perth and the crew make the pretzels by hand all day long so they’re fresh AF! Stores are located in Northbridge, Fremantle, Cannington, Joondalup, Mandurah so you should be able to find one close by. You can buy gift cards here, but be warned – they are SERIOUSLY addictive.

Planet Books

Perfect for the bookworm in your life, a giftcard for your local bookstore will make them do all the hard work by letting them choose their favourite summer read, while you get all the kudos for getting them the perfect gift! I love the selection at Planet Books and you can even buy their gift cards online, making this gift even easier! This is truly the perfect gift, as there is something for EVERYONE at Planet Books – buy here.

♥ Mickey J, Comedian

Comedy Lounge

There is nothing better than a good old laugh, and experiential gifts will leave your loved ones with less clutter, and more priceless memories. The perfect place to create some memories is at the Comedy Lounge! What more could they want than to experience a night of live stand-up comedy in the heart of the Perth CBD? Plus, not only are you supporting a local business, you are also supporting local comedians and performers. Gift cards for the Comedy Lounge can be used for tickets as well as food and drinks at the bar, to help someone enjoy the ultimate night out. Purchase gift cards here.

House of Hobby

For the creative people in your life, how about a fun workshop where they can finesse their skills or learn something new? House of Hobby offers a range of different workshops from pottery, painting, sewing, and heaps more. Guided by experts and with all equipment provided, these workshops are a great gift idea. Plus with every workshop participants will enjoy free-flowing sparkling, wine, mimosas, and bottomless OJ, tea and coffee for a non- alcoholic option, as well as a delish gourmet grazing platter.

The Purist Collection

We all have that person in our lives that loves all things natural and organic, and I have the perfect gift for them! Local gal, Emily Bathgate, started The Purist Collection after some health issues in her family and now puts her Naturopathy qualifications to good use by specialising in natural skincare, teas, and candles, as well as naturopathic therapies.

A gift card from The Purist Collection can be used on any of their gorgeous products, ebooks, naturopathy consults, or workshops. Purchase here.

Greenbunch

There is nothing better than receiving the gift of fresh flowers to add some colour and joy to your home. So obviously the next step up from that is letting someone choose their own favourite floral arrangement, potted plant or other gorgeous gift from the range at Greenbunch.

They have a stunning selection or floral arrangements to suit all tastes, as well as pot plants, vases, plant care products, seriously cute cookies, and heaps more!
Purchase a gift card for your flower fiend or green-thumbed friend here.

Your Local Cafe

There is nothing better on the weekend than going out for brunch at your favorite cafe, so why not gift someone that experience? Most cafes have gift cards or vouchers available, ask in store to find out what they can offer.

Or if you are seriously in a rush and you prefer to buy online, here are some of my fave spots (with direct links to purchase gift vouchers!):

Grouch and Co
The Little Bay
Bread in Common
Chinta
The Cat Cafe Puurth
The Wild Fig
Toast

While this list has some of my favourite Perth businesses to support, we each have our own favourite Perth spots, so why not ask your favourite local business if they offer gift cards that you can give to your loved ones this holiday season? I just know they will appreciate your support!

I hope everyone has a fun and safe festive season while supporting some fantastic local businesses!

Be well,

Leah
