As well as offering coffee and wine (which is enough to get me through any door), this delightful store has plentiful books, gift vouchers ranging from $10 to $250, and a ‘Book of the Month’ where staff can help you tailor a personalised subscription for your recipient.
Book of the month can be paid up front or monthly and can be for either an adult or a child. Riverbend Books can be reached by CityCat as well, so you can really make an adventure out of it.

Two words. Luxury Brownie. Dello Mano is an artisanal bakery offering Christmas gift boxes of their handmade luxury Belgian chocolate brownies. They also do mince pies, cakes, gingerbread, truffles, chocolates, biscuits, and hampers with bubbly. Perfect for that sweet tooth in your life!
Best part is, you have to taste test before picking your treat (just to be sure it’s as delicious as it looks!).
