The Fantastic Four of Christmas Giving
Long lists, frazzled shoppers, last minute panic and car park chaos are generally four elements of Christmas that can be best described as naughty rather than nice.
But what if we stopped for a minute and simplified the art of gift giving into four fun elements?
You know, the things that people want, the stuff they need, something for them to do and even something to read?
In a little pocket of the Bellarine, the townships of Queenscliff and Point Lonsdale have these elements all wrapped up into one delicious bauble of Christmas fun.
Let’s take a closer look at the fantastic four of Christmas giving:
Something they want – if Dad is a keen golfer, then par, birdie and eagle your way to the Queenscliff Golf Club or Point Lonsdale Golf Club and pick up a great value membership or a little something from the pro shop. They even offer lessons if Dad’s swing needs some work!
Something they need – Mum’s love pampering and now that school holidays are here, she’ll really need a massage, a manicure, relaxing facial or all three! (hint, hint). The girls at Queenscliff Day Spa and Mud Day Spa at BIG4 Beacon Resort have the best hands in the business and their range of skin creams also make beautiful and thoughtful gifts.
Something to do – Whoa kids, bored already? Give them the gift of a fun-filled day out on the bay with Sea All Dolphin Swims. This is an amazing day out for all the family, getting up close with cheeky seals and inquisitive dolphins, it’s an experience on the aqua blue like no other…….and psssst mums and dads, I can guarantee the kids will be in bed that night by 7pm!
Something to read – this can be a toughie if you don’t know their reading preference, but have you ever thought of taking them back in time? From a visit to Fort Queenscliff, the Queenscliff Maritime Museum or Historical Museum, I can guarantee your loved ones will enjoy reading stories from the past, the characters that shaped our future and the tales of wild ocean rescues and fascinating military history.
