10 last minute Christmas Gift Ideas at Prahran Market

Friday 14th December 2018

Sure there are those who had all their Christmas gift ideas all sorted in July – how we wish we were like them!

For those of you, like us, who are still on the lookout for a few last minute stocking fillers, here’s our roundup of 10 favourite gifts at Prahran Market.

The best part? You don’t even need to worry about the wrapping – pick up all your gift wrap and entertaining supplies from Donnally’s!

A beautiful Panettone or Brioche

You know this, right? A gift of food is a gift of love and the tradition of giving a beautifully made Panettone when visiting friends in the festive season dates back many many Christmases before this one.  Enjoy it warmed or toasted, perhaps a little Nutella and coffee (or a glass of something festive) on the side. It’s hard to pick amongst our Deli Traders – they know their Panettone!  Or for a twist on the same theme, head for the delicious Christmas Brioche at Q le Baker.

Personalised Copy of Super Natural by Tobie Puttock

Talented Chef and Author (and Prahran Market Ambassador) Tobie Puttock has released a new cookbook and it’s filled with simple, flavour-filled, plant-based dishes that vegans, vegetarians, and flexitarians will love.  And if you’re quick, this Saturday 15 December he is heading in-store to Essential Ingredient to sign personalised copies, just in time for Christmas.  Personalised foodie-gift here we come!   Details and times are here.

Himalayan Salt Lamp

Give the gift of home health and well-being with a Himalayan Salt Lamp form Shop Neutral. We live technologically-filled lives and many believe salt lamps to have a similar effect to an ionizer in improving the general atmosphere of a room. Think home office or living room, anywhere there are lots of devices. What’s more, they look beautiful too.

Lobster Infused Olive Oil

Foodie friends will love this luxe new product available at Essential Ingredient. Southern Rock Lobster is infused in Australian Extra Virgin Olive Oil resulting in a rich, ruby-hued oil with roasted lobster aroma, that can be drizzled over pasta or noodles, add intensity to shellfish risotto or fried rice, as a dipping oil for dumplings or to make a luxurious lobster mayonnaise.

Glass Tea Pot

A beautiful gift for the tea lover, Libertea has in store glass teapots that we just love. Pair it with a selection of loose leaf teas, and make sure some of them are flowering teas – made from globe amaranth, chrysanthemum, jasmine, lily, hibiscus, and osmanthus (to name a few) – and they turn into an artwork when brewed. Gorgeous!


There is something so generous in spirit to give a living Gift at Christmas. A Poinsettia is perfect. Available in white, pink, and of course festive red, poinsettias are stunning and effortlessly add a festive touch.  Choose your favourite from either Prahran Garden Centre, Clara’s Flowers or Flawless Flowers.

Box of New Season’s Cherries

Cherries evoke memories of warm summer holidays and full Christmas tummies!  The gift of a box of cherries is a fun and fresh gift at any time, for a few or for a crowd – all plump and shiny, ready to be enjoyed as they are or in salads, drinks, desserts or dressings. Head for Harvest Hall for those.

Coffee lover’s dream

Did you know that Jaspers Coffee has gift packs ready to go? Drink your way from the colours of Colombia, into Mexico, then take a boat across the oceans to Papua New Guinea, where you might come across East Timor. Five of their most popular fairtrade, organic coffees all wrapped up with a bow!

Or head for a Market Lane Coffee Club annual subscription where a new blend of their specialty coffee is delivered every fortnight. It’s the gift that keeps on giving.

Or something stronger

Impromptu Christmas catchup? Something to take along on the big day?  Pop into Wilson and Market or the very soon to be open Blackhearts and Sparrows for a bottle of some of the finest tipples around including the small and lesser known, from fizz to fine wine, boutique gin and craft beers.


We’re just going to leave this right here. Who doesn’t want the chance to win a million dollars? Head for Prahran Market Lotto for this stocking filler from a choice of Tattslotto tickets, scratchies, syndicates or gift packs. We can’t guarantee your friend or relative will share if they win, but who knows, you might both get lucky!

#MerryFeastmas everybody. We’ll see you at the Market
