Last year I bought my friends quirky Gorman homewares which they loved. They have a great range of funky sheets and pillow slips, cute cushions and sweet scented candles http://www.gormanshop.com.au/homeware/all.html

You can also never go wrong with a set of adorable Peter Alexander PJs or slippers http://www.peteralexander.com.au/shop/en/peteralexander/ or a pretty T2 Iced Tea or tea cup set https://www.t2tea.com/en/au/Home

For out of the box things I'd head to ISHKA they have a great range of bohemian inspired homewares, furniture jewellery and clothing. I particularly love the funky cushions they stock https://www.ishka.com.au/homewares/soft-furnishings/

For the practical joker I'd head to Bernard's Magic Shop in West Melbourne to pick up a gag gift or two that will be sure to surprise on Christmas morning http://www.bernards.com.au/index.html
