Why go to a bland, lifeless shopping centre when you can kill two turkeys with one bauble?  (You know what I mean).  Make life easy for yourself this Christmas and head to Chapel Street for everything shiny, festive and fun.  With no annoying muzak in earshot.  

Here’s how to nail Christmas the Chapel Street Way.  

The Christmas list kick off

Food court? No thank you. Head to a funky cafe, order your favourite coffee, smoothie or treat and write the list of people you need to buy for. Hey, it’s a long list, so why not treat yourself to something sweet and sticky? It will put you in a good mood before you start your shopping spree.

Everything you need

Chapel Street has everything you need to nail Christmas. Fashion, food, furniture … jewellery, flowers, hair and make-up. You’ll find some of your favourites … but also smaller boutiques with unique items you won’t find anywhere else. Stores like Ishka, Daqua, Milk & Sugar and Dinosaur Designs will make you shine as the best and most thoughtful gift giver in the world on Christmas Day. You might even find something you like and keep it for yourself. Don’t feel bad, it’s Christmas.

Stretch your legs and get fresh air

Summer is here so why would you want to spend hours inside a giant shopping arena, when you can work on your tan and get some sun while crossing names off your Christmas list? Wandering down Chapel Street while window shopping and café hopping is a great way to work on your tan, get the steps up on your Fitbit and enjoy the fresh air. Plus, you can wear your new sunnies. You’ll just feel better. Promise.

Parking and PT

How horrible is it driving around and around and around looking for a carpark during the silly season?  Not fun at all and a huge waste of time.  Also a super stressful start to your shopping expedition.  Chapel Street takes that pain away with off street parking, high rise carparks, and trains and trams that drop you off all along Chapel Street. (P.S this handy website has all the details) Don’t waste time and energy looking for a park – spend that time doing something nice for yourself.  

Treat yourself

Once you’ve bought that final Kris Kringle gift, you deserve a treat.  There are so many fantastic cafes, bars and restaurants in the Chapel Street precinct, you can enjoy a mid-shop sugar fix and then a celebratory drink at the end.  Arrange to meet a friend and you can compare your exceptional purchases over a wine.  Christmas shopping should be fun – not a chore.  A cheeky cocktail, superfood bowl or non stop dumplings will be the perfect end to your day.  Your friends and family will wonder why you look so stress free in the lead up to Christmas.  Tell them you bought a new moisturiser.
