As editor of Westfield's Christmas magazine, Margaret Merten is Westfield's expert on gift giving and buying.
Margaret says the rules of selecting a great gift never change – the key is knowing who you are buying for.
“Make a list of everyone you need to buy for, and identify three things each person likes. Whether it be a hobby, musician or destination, it doesn‟t matter," she said.
"If you're not sure, ask. Friends or family can provide insights, or ask directly without giving too much away.”
A few of the thousands of great gift ideas at Westfield have been compiled into this guide. All gifts photographed are available from Westfield centres and www.westfield.com.au.
