It’s December, folks.

If you’re at a loss on what to get someone special in your life, let us bring your attention to Brisbane Powerhouse. Offering something for the fashion, food, arts or music lover in your life, this Brisbane Powerhouse gift guide is sure to provide the perfect pressie for your loved one.

Ditch the wrapping and nab a ticket to one of Brisbane Powerhouse’s spectacular shows
Unwrapping all of your presents on Christmas Day is great, but being gifted an experience, concert or show is far more exciting in our opinion. Whether you’re looking for a gift for a comedy buff, music lover or art enthusiast, Brisbane Powerhouse is where you’ll find a culture-packed selection of shows, with everything from festivals celebrating queer arts, culture and comedy to exhilarating contemporary dance performances available to experience.

Give the gift of a adrenalin-infused dinner with a voucher to Vertigo
This one is for the adrenalin junkies in your life. Brisbane Powerhouse’s newest rooftop restaurant Vertigo is all about pushing the limits. Hanging four storeys above ground, this sky-high fine diner is dishing up three courses of delicious eats with a side of sensational city views. Trust us, a voucher to this restaurant is sure to be a gift that your loved one will remember forever.

These funky vinyl bags are a fabulous addition to the fashion lover’s wardrobe
We love a funky bag – especially one that can fit pretty much everything we will ever need in it. These super-colourful vinyl bags by Melbourne designer Erik Yvon are made from upcycled original vinyl artwork, making each stylish sack unique. When you throw one of these bad boys over your shoulder, you’re not only sporting a functional bag, but carrying an original piece of art.

Get the organiser in your life an Orbitkey
Do you have one of those friends that just seems to have life in lock? Everything has its place, is neat and tidy and just makes sense. Well, this gift is perfect for them, as well as your more fast and loose pals (we’re looking at you, friend who is always losing their keys). The Orbitkey ensures your keys are kept in a neat, organised and silent stack, while also looking super stylish.

This Rivsalt Gift Set is sure to impress the culinary whiz in your group
Looking for the perfect pressie for the budding chef in your circle? A Rivsalt gift set is a pretty great option, and will become the talking point of all dinner parties. Designed in Sweden and based on a Japanese concept, the Rivsalt Gift Set includes a high-quality stainless steel grater, a block of Himalayan pink rock salt and a natural-oak stand.

This sublime smelling soap and body wash is a much-needed addition to everyone’s shower routine
If you’re struggling on what to get that someone in your life that ‘doesn’t want anything’ this Christmas, you can’t go wrong with a Wavertree and London soap or body wash. These plant-based, Australian-made goodies smell delicious, are great for your skin and look beautiful.
