Christmas Gift Ideas from Sanctuary Cove

As Christmas approaches, it’s easy to run out of gift inspiration when you have countless people to buy for, each with different interests and hobbies. So, we’ve done the hard work for you by putting together our 2020 Gift Guide, for every type of friend or family member you have!

For The Homelover

For the friend who loves making their house, a home. They’re always moving things around and updating their decor to suit the latest trends. Chances are a lot of your Summer socialising is at their house, so spoil them with something they can both cherish and use all year long.

The Homelover will love winding down as the sweet scent of vanilla drifts throughout the home from a Glass Ultrasonic Diffuser from Chempro. This diffuser is stylish and curvaceous, so it’ll fit in perfectly with the rest of their decor, and with a wide range of scents available, it’s a gift that can be used across all seasons.

If your Homelover loves simple styling, look no further than Theo and Joe. Their extensive range of plush cushions will suit everyone’s tastes and elevate your living space. Theo and Joe also have both large and small decor pieces available, so you can find gifts to suit all budgets.

Hamptons Style have a large range of interior design, fashion and home styling books, the perfect gift to give the Homelover inspiration for their own space. You can also find crockery, vases and centrepieces for your Summer entertaining.

For those planning 2021 (after 2020 who wouldn’t be dreaming of far off places to visit), Soho Girl have a Conscious Calendar or a Canvast Yearly Planner to plan those goals and book in your holidays.

The Village Flower Emporium not only has a stunning selection of floral arrangements but also personalised hampers and handcrafted vases that all Homelovers will adore.

For The Summer Lover

Summer Lover

Always out and about, you can count on the Summer Lover to meet you at the beach or by the pool, with a picnic (and cocktail) ready to go. Fuel their love for the outdoors with a new summer uniform- a swimwear set from Calypso Resort and Swimwear!

With so many styles and options available, it can be difficult to know where to start when it comes to gifting swimwear. Thankfully, the team at Calypso are friendly, knowledgeable and ready to assist you in finding The Summer Lover’s perfect piece. They stock a wide range of classic styles and well known labels like Sunflair, Jets and Seafolly, so you can’t go wrong.

If they already have a different bikini for every day of the week, head to Captain Nemo’s to find a range of floating lounges and accessories to up-level their poolside Sunday sessions. They have everything from simple pool chairs to giant pink flamingos… need we say more?

For The Gourmet Foodie

When they’re not whipping up a storm in the kitchen, they’re dining out at the latest and greatest restaurants throughout the Gold Coast. You can always count on them to have a great restaurant or bar recommendation, or an impressive recipe to share with you.

Foodie Christmas

Treat them to their next dining experience with a Sanctuary Cove gift voucher. Valid for all the restaurants and cafes onsite, they’ll be spoilt for choice! Gift vouchers are always a great option, so the recipient can customise their experience.

If your Gourmet Foodie prefers to cook at-home, treat them to a Batch Ceramics serving platter or bowl from Cabana Store. Handmade in Sydney, each piece is unique and different to the next, making it the perfect gift! The Gourmet Foodie can plate up all their Summer appetisers and share plates in style.

Discover boxed specialty chocolates and gourmet hampers at The Village Flower Emporium and decadent food hampers from the IGA for the ultimate foodie fan.

For The One Who Has It All

The most difficult to buy for… they always purchase an item for themselves before you have the chance to gift it to them! For The One Who Has It All, you’ll need to think outside the box- what’s the one thing we could all use everyday? A little bit of relaxation inTouch Massage chairs are the epitome of a luxury gift. Exclusively designed by in-house engineers with the latest technology, they’re considered to be Australia’s number one massage chair. With benefits spanning far further than just relaxation, massage has been shown to boost the immune system, improve sleep and assist recovery from exercise… all things The One Who Has It All can’t gift themselves!

For The Style Queen (or King!)

Every time you see them, they have an effortlessly put together outfit that’s worthy of a magazine. They always find new and upcoming brands, and have the dreamiest selection of accessories to perfectly match their unique sense of style. There’s nothing they’d love more for Christmas than to expand their wardrobe.

Fashion Lover

Queen or King has their soft spot- shoes, clothes, jewellery… whatever it is, Sanctuary Cove has a retailer they’ll love. For the Queens- Sanctuary Resort Shoppe, Cassardi Shoes, Costa Moda, Eev Fashion and Amore Fine Jewellery stock everything from handbags to shoes, to fashion and accessories.

For the Kings- Harry’s Emporium and Latitude Men’s Clothing have the latest in local and international men’s designer brands. If you’d prefer to give the gift of activewear, Sports & Leisure Cove have both men’s and women’s clothes and accessories for all types of activities!

Sanctuary Resort Shoppe stocks a range of handbags and jewellery for the stylish one in your family.

For The Boating Enthusiast

This Summer, you’ll be lucky to catch The Boating Enthusiast anywhere else but on the water. They’re love for boating runs deep, with an obsession for all things nautical- so add a sentimental piece of memorabilia to their collection from Decorum Gifts. Stocking only the most unique and highest quality memorabilia, you’ll be sure to find a gift to remember amongst their range of model yachts, historical reproductions and nautical home decor.

For something more on the wild side, Captain Nemo’s is full of boating and marine accessories like snorkeling gear, stand up paddle boards and inflatable rings!

Still Can’t Decide?

Whether you’re a Homelover, Gourmet Foodie, or a combination of all, a getaway at The InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort is an indulgent gift anyone would love. Treat someone to a relaxing staycay, with access to all the amenities at the Resort, including the iconic beach lagoon pool, restaurants and bars.
