Gift Shops in the Perth Hills
A stroll around a historic Perth Hills town is much nicer than trudging around a huge indoor mall! Head to the Hills for gift shopping, then enjoy a coffee at a cafe afterwards. You’ll be sure to find unique pieces that are crafted locally. Here are our favourite spots to shop:
Nestled in the heart of Mundaring, there are many gift shop gems to discover.

The town centre of Kalamunda is a great place to take a wander around its many gift shops. From quirky handmade finds at The Micro Collective and Dreams Jewellery and Gifts to gifts for green thumbs at Hills Botanic, essential oils at Herb Circle, dreamy PJs at Mia Lingerie, while The Clip Joint has plenty of accessories for your furry friends – there’s truly something for everyone!
