Late Night Christmas: Gift Guide Edition

With over 90 stores open late, it's the perfect night to tick off that list
6 December, 2018

Late Night Christmas is happening Thursday 20 December, 5-9pm and it's the perfect opportunity to shop around your favourite stores and find a gift for everyone on your list. It's Christmas shopping but without the madness we so often think of at this time of year.

As you wander from store to store, be entertained by the free street festival happening in and around Queen Street with 70 performances. Check out our handy map and performance schedule for you to download and print off for the night to see which stores are open late and where the performers will be.. (Please note times and locations accurate at time of publishing. Could be subject to change).

Here are some of our top picks from a few of the stores that will be open late (and some of them even have special, exclusive Late Night Christmas offers on!)

1. Pat Menzies | 174 Queen Street

Pat Menzies is a city centre treasure and we couldn't recommend highly enough popping in here for your Christmas gifts. We're loving their extensive range of Birkenstocks on offer or for a fun stocking filler, peruse their Stance Socks selection.
