Where to buy gifts in Canberra

AdelaideGirl 23 May 2020 6

Hey all!

I have a gift to buy for a 28 year old female friend – where should I go? I’m looking for gift shops, boutiques and not just chain-stores/ department stores. Any recommendations?

I live in Woden but can travel.

Thank you!

In my experience the NGA shop is an absolute rip off. Overpriced rubbish, especially when there is an exhibition on.

Maybe so, but I can never get out of the Portrait Gallery’s store without buying something. Hats off to whoever runs that great little place – an interesting and quirky selection of books and a range of other stuff which would make great gifts.

Our galleries and museums have lovely gift shops. Try The National Portrait Gallery, NGA, The Glassworks. Lonsdale St has some great little shops too.

The National Museum gift shop is a good option as well. They have a “remainders” section where there are bargains (something you don’t need at a price you can afford).
Things like books for $40 reduced to $5 on the perils of climate change that turned out not to be the best sellers that the publishers hoped they would be.
