Last Friday, Mizz Mummy & Co attended the unveiling of the new – Myer GIFTORIUM.
Myers new concept will have ALL 67 stores – Australia wide, Dedicate an entire level of Myer into what I like to refer to as “Christmas on crack”.
Myer have hired an additional 3000 Giftorium employees and have created some serious Giftorium goodness, In fact Myer have purchased enough gifts to fill the Melbourne cricket ground with around 2.2million dollars worth of gifts. Inspired by the truly great international department stores, Myer is the only retailer in Australia to offer such an exciting and extensive Christmas program combining services, in-store events and a huge array of gifting and festive related products.
This year Myer has stepped it up, With Christmas only 2 months away, Myer have made Christmas gifts more personal & have introduced the added feature of customisation.
They have introduced ‘Gifticians’ – Gifticians at Myer are the bubbly and bouncy resident gift experts who are easy to spot in their funky glittery red and white uniforms. Just tell the Gifticians who you are buying for and they’ll give you all the Giftspiration you need.
As well as introducing ‘Producticians‘ – Producticians will be on hand to provide product demonstrations and reveal the latest must-have Christmas gift ideas sourced from around the world by the Myer buying team.
Other new in-store services available in all stores this Christmas include the ‘All Wrapped Up’ Christmas Gift registry ,Gift ordering on iPads when product is not available in-store, Shop and Drop parcel service so you don’t have to carry your bags, and Shop, Wrap and Deliver service. AND my favorite service of all – IF you live within 2km of the CBD you will have an ELF hand deliver your gifts!
Myer has 12 Themes of Christmas which have been included this year:
- Dapper Dad
- Miracle Mum
- Glamour Gran
- Trendy Young Things ( A range of gifts for Teenagers & Young adults )
- Kids Cubby ( Toys & Childrens Gifts)

- Globe Trotter ( Gifts for Travellers)
- Paws Corner ( For your fur babies)

Another wonderful addition to Myer is that now you are able to book online to visit Santa – Instead of waiting out the unpredictable queues – Did you know that across the country over 120,000 people visit Santa at a Myer store?
Save your children the disappointment and at the same time your sanity!
From the moment we stepped foot into the store, The Christmas spirit was shining – The employees are friendly, approachable & genuinely happy to help you with whatever request you may have. Master 3 ‘Riley’ was amazed by the decorations and chose some gifts that he will be telling Santa he would love to see under the tree .
Australia’s most popular music stars will help launch Christmas at Myer in each CBD store with, Guy Sebastian to perform at Myer Sydney City, and to be announced performers in the Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide stores.
From 8 November, every Myer store around the country will schedule, on weekends and selected key dates, a whole host of fun activities including children’s face painting, balloon artists, musical performances, appearances by children’s characters, cosmetics workshops and children’s Christmas book readings.
Myer will continue its long standing partnership with The Salvation Army to raise funds towards assisting families in need. The joint Power of Give Christmas campaign is in its second year, allowing Myer customers to make a donation to The Salvation Army in a single transaction when they buy in store.
Myer also supports the charity through further initiatives including sales of the popular Spirit of Christmas CD that has raised more than $7.5 million dollars over the past 20 years.
So if you want the ultimate in gifts, The ultimate in Customer services then this Christmas season you should head in to Myer!
The Myer team are a generous bunch, They sent us home with our very own SodaStream, Archie Bear, Dilmah T, $50 gift voucher & My very own Mr Man – Little Miss personalised print !
