Gah Christmas already!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… no, it IS Christmas, like just around the corner!!

But don’t fret, I have your back. You can do everything at Harbour Town (or HTown as like to call it), and I mean EVERYTHING.

From mum, grandma, dad, kids, pets…and everyone in between.

Let’s get shopping…

Harbour Town Mega Sale is on Dec 12 & 13 – Don’t miss it!



Bags and Luggage Direct have a super sale at the mo, with Tony Bianco bags from $21.50 (these were $99!) and Kardashian Kollection down to $29.50! Pick up a voucher from Centre Management for an additional 15% off until Dec 15. Are you kidding me?!

I also love the Shiels Direct leather and stainless steel bracelets for only $30. Slip that in my stocking thanks huz…

For the fragrance lover, Cosmetics Fragrance Direct have the gorgeous Elizabeth Arden Green Tea gift pack for just $25… that includes 100ml fragrance, bath gel, body cream and makeup bag.

Shopping for the sporty friend? Then check out this hot Lorna Jane combo of tank ($15) and shorts ($30). I think I’ve lost a kilo just looking at it…

Looking for a gift fit for a queen? Royal Doulton Outlet have the exquisite Marc Aurel Bavarian German made crystal vases for $59.95. A saving of $90 thanks very much.

Mimco Outlet are a big crowd pleaser and with these jewelled slides, you can’t go wrong. Just $79 down from $229! Perfect for Xmas day…

And if you need a few gorgeous, but inexpensive stocking fillers, look no further than Lovisa. Seriously, with necklaces starting from $5, earrings at $3, and bracelets $3 for a set of 3…it’s a no brainer. They also have a beautiful range of sterling silver (925) earrings featuring real Swarovski crystals. The kicker? 3 for $20.

Another gorgeous store to visit is Empty Hanger. I absolutely love their Chloe Jane candle range, starting from $14.99 and picture frames from $39. Let’s not forget their fab clothes!! You just have to pop in and see for yourself.

There are so many other stores from basic to luxe – Supre have some super cool tees, 2 for $15, while Cue are clearing out tops from $40!



Blokes can be so hard to buy for..amiright? But at HTown (I reckon Marketing Dept will catch on with this), we’ve got them all sorted.

Firstly, lets get them smelling dreamy with the classic CK One from Cosmetics Fragrance Direct for the bargain price of $49.

Then set him up with super cool sunnies from Sunglass Hut – a pair of Pradas for only $280? Perhaps Persol is more his style for $238. You won’t find those prices anywhere else…

Get his summer casual look on fleek (I’m told this is the hip word with the kids these days) with Esprit shorts for $39.95 (were $79.95) and tee for $19.95 (was $39.95). Classic, comfy, perfect for keeping his cool while having his post Xmas lunch snooze…

Or, if a shirt is more his style, pick up a hot paisley number from YD for just $29.99. Save yourself $60 thanks very much…

Adventure bound? I’ve put together the best gift pack from Kathmandu. Packing cell $10, toiletries bag $15 and microfibre quick dry towel $15. Total value and recommended retail price of $115, yours for $40.

Hello, HT rocks!!

Inspire his New Year’s resolution with joggers from Intersport. These two Adidas and Mizuno runners will set you back $140. Yep, for both pairs. Buy one, get the second at 50% off. You wanna know much you’ve saved? $200!

My dad totally needs new shirts (step away from 1988…), so I’ve bought him three on trend casuals from Stafford Ellinson for $109.95. Saved myself around $90 with their buy 2 get one free deal…

And for the coordinated family, head to Converse and pick up a pair of uber funky connies for every family member from their last of the best wall from $30…#matchymatchy



There are so many fab stores to shop to get your kids looking the part this Chrissie.

First stop, Cheeki Kids. Easily, one of my faves, I’ve picked out three of the cuuuutest outfits. I mean, when the style of the tutu dress is called ‘En pointe’, you know you are onto something. With brands including Rock Your Baby, Saltwater Sandals and Natives and with 15% off nearly all stock (some are discounted more mind you), your little ones will be rocking their Christmas day threads. Prices from just $13.60.

My ovaries are tingling just looking at the baby outfit…cluck, cluck…

Smiggle are the kings of stocking fillers, with their sale wall, or 3 for $10 table, but I love the roomy, bright backpacks on sale for $30. Perfect for kindy or daycare or even a sleepover at nannas (hint, hint mum..)

Any of your tikes OBSESSED with Paw Patrol? I can’t be the only one…well, you’ll be mum of the year when they unwrap a PP towel ($12), plush ($10) and Monopoly game ($10) all from Kids Who…fabbo!

I’ve heard there’s a little movie coming out, Star Wars or something (I’m kidding, my huz would call blasphemy), and EB Games have a whole bunch of gift ideas, so this little pack I put together would set you back $60 and get you out of doing dishes for a week.

They’ve also got Minecraft (again, some little game taking over the world and my kids lives!!!) books, games, figures, plush toys all starting from $8.

If like me, you update your kids PJ’s and swimmers every Christmas, then check out the range from Cotton On Kids. At 2 for $35 they are the sweetest sets you’ll ever see. And this super cute rashie and matching bottoms will clear out your small change for just $11.50 the set. Mmhmm, girlfriend..sorted!

We all know Seed have some pretty cool gear, and these teen trainers are no exception. From $29.95, and with their current spend and save, if you buy 3 items, you get 40% off! Gotta love that!



For the practical person, head into General Trader for a bargain on your Christmas cookware. Need a new roaster for your turkey? Well the Raco 3 piece roaster pack is now down to $59.95…50% off the original price! And don’t forget they have the awesome pineapple and watermelon inflatables for $79.95..these are super popular so get in quick!

I’m loving the rose gold and copper theme at the moment, and to work the trend on a budget, head into Ned’s where wire tealight holders start at $9. Instant style lift for the holiday season and into the New Year. And while you’re there, pick up one of the faux reindeer heads for just $30. I can just see it hanging on my wall now…

And for those who get like to get winter sorted in summer, Bed Bath N’ Table are clearing out their flannelette sheet sets from just $20.

Pet pooches need not miss out with coats, snacks and accessories from Desperate Housedogs.

There you have it…and that’s just skimming the surface. HTown has so much on offer, all the time, so you never have to shop full price again.

Merry (outlet) Christmas my friends. May the force be with you this holiday season.
