With an upbeat playlist to soundtrack your browsing and friendly staff at the ready to offer their assistance, Abode Homewares and Gifts fits nicely into its trendy, stress-free Hall Street surroundings. The store is helpfully split into several sections; at the entrance you’ll find a large area dedicated to homewares and jewellery, and towards the back of the store, quirky stationery and beautiful coffee-table books line the walls. But make sure you check out the back for a treasure trove of children’s toys, books and clothes, which will sort you out for those last-minute baby showers and kids’ birthday parties.
Gift shopping can be challenging, especially when you don’t know where to look. Luckily Sydney is brimming with gift shops to suit even the fussiest of tastes. Offering everything from candles and homewares to designer accessories and even cheeky novelty books and games, these stores make your task a whole lot easier. What’s even handier about these local favourites, is that they have no minimum spend on card purchases.
