It’s the last day of the working year, the office closed at lunchtime and Phillippa was due in town for a Christmas party at 4pm. But first, she needed gifts!
Finally leaving her desk at 2:30pm, she still had to do the shopping, change into her party clothes, and be back in town in 90 minutes. Thankfully, she knew exactly where to head. Her first stop was Coco Gifts, located right in the heart of St Albans, just a few blocks from Merivale Mall.
Finding a park outside was easy and, while the shop was busy when she arrived, friendly staff were on hand to help with gift selection. There was something for everyone, including popular brands, like French Country, Citta Design, Beau Accessories, Four Corners, Helga May, Babu, and Moana Road.
Exploring the beautiful range around her, Phillippa was soon ticking items off her shopping list:
• Secret Santa – tick
• Gift for the woman who has everything – tick
• Gift for a candle lover – tick
• Gift for a male – tick
• Gifts for little people – tick
• Gift for a jewellery lover – tick!
Next thing, the staff were busy wrapping the gifts and, as she went to pay, a bonus $20 loyalty voucher prints out from the Coco Gifts VIP club. Tomorrow, she can come back and treat herself. At 4:05pm, Phillippa arrives at the Christmas party with the best gifts for all her favourite people and, most importantly, the experience was a breeze.
