Most of the classes cater for all levels giving the opportunity to move your body and connect with yourself in a safe space. Let your loved one stretch it out with a gift voucher, which can be used on class passes, workshops, courses and products.

The Daily Edited, David Jones (QueensPlaza)

This Australian luxury fashion brand specialises in monogrammable leather goods. From bags to accessories to office supplies you’re sure to find the perfect gift you’ve been searching for. The monogrammed options are super personalised for that special touch and let you choose your font, text, size, colour and position.

Pandora, Brisbane Arcade

Pandora have long regaled themselves as the perfect house of gift-giving, and with a charming range of ever-expanding treasures to choose from, it continues to offer so much more than the charm bracelets they originally became famous for. We're loving Pandora's stackable bangles; a bohemian take on staple pieces we’ve come to love. 

Flowers, various locations

You can never go wrong with flowers and you’ll be able to fill her kitchen counter, bedside and dining table with blooms that she will love and appreciate. You can’t go past Maison Fleur in Margaret Street and in the Queen Adelaide Building. This boutique florist emphasises elegance, style and seasonal flowers. Having been in business for over 110 years, it is safe to say Perrotts passionate team knows its flowers and is another great choice. Other quality florists in The City include Bellfield’s Florist and Flowers by Jane, both in Anzac Square Arcade. To hear all of our thoughts on The City’s best florists see here.

Designer jewellery, various locations

The City is your one-stop shop for dazzling designer jewellery, with a number of boutiques at your fingertips. Sydney-powerhouse Jan Logan, whose Adelaide St is a firm favourite amongst The City’s social trailblazers. For all things diamonds head to Xennox Diamonds, which is one of Brisbane’s first jewellery stores. The showroom alone will make the experience memorable, from the scotch and champagne bar to the dream design booth and more we recommend taking the gift recipient with you to enjoy with you. And be sure to check out Precious Stones Jewellery to find a treasure trove of ultra-modern, estate and antique jewellery to find a unique and precious piece.

Day spas, various locations

A day spa gift certificate guarantees an unforgettable gift and something for the recipient to look forward to when the hustle and bustle of life is getting in the way. The City is overflowing with indulgent options, from tried and tested tranquillity temple Ella Bache (Myer Centre) through to Brisbane CBD’s premier hotels offering up five-star spa experiences, including the W Brisbane Spa and Stephanies Luxury Spas at Sofitel Brisbane Central - an inner-city oasis for locals in the know and rumoured hot-spot for visiting celebrities. The Aquarius Health & Medispa is also an ultimate relaxation treat.
