As our community is well into opening up again, and with the festive season sneaking up on us, it’s time to get organised for Christmas! At Thrift Park you’ll find the Christmas essentials you need, so get ahead now and beat the Christmas rush.

1. Gift Ideas

It can be difficult trying to find the perfect gift for someone special. At TerryWhite Chemmart you’ll find a great range of  Christmas beauty or skincare packs, fragrances, candles, nail polish and other beauty products that’ll make the perfect gift. You could even give the gift of some much needed pampering with a voucher from Queenie Nails or Green Bamboo Massage.

When it comes to gift wrapping and finding cards, Thrift Park Sub News is the place to go to stock up!


2. Decorations

Yes!! It’s nearly time to pull out the wreath, tinsel, baubles, and Christmas tree! Do you decorate early or last minute? 😉 If you’re keen to update the Christmas colour scheme or you’ve had some decorations go missing (thanks to the safe place you put them in but can’t remember!), make a list of what you need before starting your shopping. Ohhh and don’t forget to test your Christmas lights now to make sure they work! If any have become faulty since you last used them, you’ll have time to replace them before all the Christmas lights are sold out. And if you’re a DIYer take a look at this list of DIY Christmas decoration ideas.

If you enjoy handmade decorations your kids have made, or know they love to get crafty, join us from 11am to 2pm on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th December 2021 for some fun free Christmas craft activities.


3. Christmas Dinner

When we start booking in and organising to catch up with friends and family to celebrate the festive season, there’s always the question of “what should we make?”, as well as making sure everyone is catered for. From meats perfect for a traditional Christmas lunch or dinner, to sausages and burgers for a BBQ, Scotch & Fillet have got you covered. To order ahead for Christmas so you don’t miss out take a look at the order form on their website. If seafood is usually your choice for Christmas then stop by Fishi Business on your next grocery shopping run.  And if you want to try something new you’ll love these great recipes from Woolworths.


We hope this helps you prepare for the festive season and helps set you up for a wonderful Christmas.
