Have you done all your Chrissy shopping already??  Yes? Well this isn’t for you then…keep reading the rest of the paper.

Make it easy on yourself and shop locally. It really is amazing how much there is on offer in our little town. This list will take the pressure off and help our small businesses keep on keeping on!

Kids? How about giving a gift that will last forever with learn-to-swim lessons at the Aquatic Centre?

For that hard to buy for rellie, how about a voucher? The choices are endless – perhaps a massage at Silver Koru, or a Beauty Treatment at Serenity Beauty, a Rainbow Pharmacy treat or maybe a couple of sessions with Cooloola Coast Wellness Yoga or Cooloola Coast Pilates!

Or keep it simple and shout them a night out at Arcobaleno’s, the Surf Club or the Marina Bar and Grill at Tin Can Bay…mmmmm mmmmm!

Visitors coming from far, far away? A few night’s accommodation at the Getaway or a cabin at the Tin Can Bay Tourist Park could hit the spot.

For the more adventurous there is an abundance of choice –  a dolphin kayak tour or surf lesson with Epic Ocean Adventures, a horse ride on the beach or an open water dive course with Wolf Rock Dive…that’s a gift they won’t forget!

Maybe a day tour to Fraser Island or the Surf and Sand Safari half-day tour would be more suitable? Contact the Rainbow Beach Tourist Info centre and book it in.

Want some groovy boardies or a sweet little dress for Christmas Day? Look no further than 7th Wave Surf, they can outfit the whole family for the big day, including Grandma and Grandpa.

For those camping/ fishing/outdoor types think:

Saturn Antennas – they have a satellite dish that will keep your tv reception crisp and clear.

Rainbow Beach Fishing and Camping – have every little thing you need to make camping a breeze, from tents to swags to fishing rods, you are sure to find that special gift for the campaholic.

Rainbow Beach Hardware carry a large range of fishing and camping gear to keep them going.

Then there’s the fishing charters –  with Double Island Charters, Rainbow Beach Fishing Charters and Keely Rose, there will be a trip to suit everyone.

Mitre 10 at Cooloola Cove suggests a Baby Weber Q as the ideal gift and it’s on special for $299…. get ‘em while they’re hot!

Who wouldn’t appreciate a voucher for car detailing from JC or a service at Rainbow Beach Service Centre! I know I would.

And for Christmas and Boxing Day, get everything you could possibly need from IGA, Cooloola Wholesalers, the Chilli Bin and top it all off with a cold bottle of Bubbles from the Sports Clubs brand new Bottleshop.

Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas, no matter how you spend it.

See you all in 2019.
