Gearing up for some last-minute Christmas shopping? Luckily for you, Melbourne has it all!

Whether you’re on the hunt for clothing, electronics, or something truly unique, you’re sure to find it in one of Melbourne’s thousands of stores!

Christmas is obviously one of the best and busiest time of the year for any shopping store. From special personalised gifts, Christmas-themed goodies, and a bargain or two, each store has its unique offer going on.

Here are a couple of our favourite stores to shop for Christmas!

Planning to shop in the heart of Melbourne? You’ll need CBD parking!

A shopping day in the city isn’t just about gifts – at this time of the year, it’s also an adventurous day out made even better with beautiful festive decorations and an all-round energetic and happy vibe as people get ready for yet another wonderful Christmas season!

Preparing for a full day of shopping leading up to Christmas?

Choose Le Garage for safe and affordable CBD parking. Ideally located on Flinders Street moments from Fed Square, you can reach some of the city’s best shopping by foot in just a few minutes.

You’ll be thankful at the end of the day, when your arms are laden with shopping bags, that your car is nearby!

1. Culture Kings

Situated just behind the Forum Theatre on Russell Street, you’ll find Culture Kings.

For loved ones who are sporty, young, and adventurous, this is the perfect place to shop.

Find streetwear clothing from all your favourite brands including Adidas, Nike, Champion, and Stussy at their impressive two-storey CBD store.

They’ve even got a half-court basketball court for you to show off your skills!

Celeb visitors include French Montana and Tyson Beckford, so if you’re looking for cool, casual, and bang-on-trend streetwear, you can’t skip Culture Kings.

 

2. RetroStar Vintage Clothing

This shop goes way back in time, offering us a variety of clothes from the 1940s to 1990s.

Whether you’re a fan of abstract 80s prints or prefer the tie-dye trend from the 90s, a visit to RetroStar lets you travel back in time to your favourite decade.

You’ll also find some vintage treasures here, including band t-shirts and denim overalls!

If you’re looking for a gift for someone who wishes they could be transported to their favourite decade, head to RetroStar.

It’s located in the Nicholas building and you enter via Swanston Street. Walk a few steps down the alley, turn left, and climb a couple of flights of stairs – you’ve reached vintage heaven!

3. Bourke Street

If you’re looking for variety, your search ends here.

There’s a good reason why this street is one of the busiest streets of Melbourne. It’s always crowded with not only shoppers, but unique street artists and acts, too!

Bourke Street offers huge ranges of big branded clothing and department stores like H&M, David Jones, Myer, ZARA, Target, Daiso and JB Hi-Fi, just to name a few.

If it’s not clothing you’re after, you’re still spoilt for choice with electronics, cosmetics, home decor, and more!

Remember, Bourke Street is strictly pedestrian access only, so drop your car off at Le Garage and walk straight up Russell – then hit the stores!

 

4. Melbourne Central

If you’re still confused about what to buy, you can always visit Melbourne Central.

Here, you’ll find a variety of clothing stores, as well as cosmetic stores like The Body Shop, Lush, Mac, and Sephora.
