There’s no denying Christmas is the time of year when everyone’s wallets are substantially lighter and their bellies substantially fuller. The latter is usually a good time, the former not so much.
Don’t be alarmed though, there is a solution to spending way too much on gifts and it comes in the form of the Coast’s favourite outlet shopping centre Harbour Town.
With over 240 Australian and international retailers and almost certainly covering all your favourite things, you can knock over every single person on your list and snap up a few things for yourself in the process.
At the top of our list are stores like Tigerlily, Nike, Bonds, Coach and Converse (in case you’ve got some spare cash for your favourite media pals).
In other fun news, there’s a lot going on at Harbour Town in the lead up to Christmas. How about a selfie with Santa? The big guy will be cruising around in his beach buggy and rather than line up for hours on end, you can grab him for a quick snap while you’re perusing the shops.
There’s also a $250 gift card up for grabs and all you need to do to enter share your festive family pic with Harbour Town’s Santa tag @harbourtowngc and #ultimatesantaselfie.
In the spirit of the season, Surf Life Saving Queensland will be wrapping your gifts (far better than a regular person ever could) for a gold coin donation, which will of course be donated directly to one of the Coast’s much-loved causes.
Honestly, how good is the festive season.
The Ultimate Santa Selfie competition ends this Friday 22nd December, but you’re welcome to snap a free selfie with Santa up to Christmas Eve!
