Guest blogger Erika Jonsson attended the launch of the Myer Christmas Giftorium today at Myer Melbourne- a place designed to bring fun and theatre to Christmas shopping. Thanks Erika!
“Like a kid on Christmas morning.”
It’s the expression of unadulterated joy; childhood captured in the magic of belief. It’s an aspect of parenthood so many of us hope will return us to our own childhoods, to the excitement of waking up early to see what’s under the Christmas tree.
If you believe in the magic of Christmas you can mix that with the pragmatic ticking off your gift buying list by heading to the Myer Christmas Giftorium which is bring Christmas cheer to all 67 Myer stores nationwide.
It’s more than a place to buy all your presents in one fell swoop. It’s the sort of scene you might imagine in a Hollywood movie – sparkling displays, activities, Santa’s cottage and toys galore.
Melbourne city’s Giftorium brings the magic of Myer’s renowned Christmas windows inside, with the entirety of level 6 dedicated to festive cheer and making it easy to find the perfect gifts for your loved ones.
The Jedi training area for light sabre novices is destined to be a favourite, along with the magic displays and Build A Bear Workshops, where you can continue the Star Wars theme with a Darth Vader or storm trooper teddy. Star Wars pop-up shops feature at every Myer store this Christmas.
There are gifts for every budget, from stocking fillers to full-sized arcade games. If you need a hand working out what to buy, Myer’s trained Gifticians are on hand to help – you can even book an appointment.
If in doubt, personalise. There’s shirts, leather goods, Mr Men and Little Miss, Peanuts, and there is a service for personalised stockings and Santa sacks while you wait. And if you have a Nutella addict in your house, get them a jar with their name on it so they can keep it all for themselves.
Santaland is still under construction and waiting for the man in red to arrive, but he’ll be in residence from November 10, when Jennifer Hawkins will unveil the 60th Christmas windows at Myer’s flagship Bourke St store.
Melbourne city’s Giftorium’s official opening is on November 14 and will feature performances by X Factor winner Dani Im and Hi Five.
