Best End-of-year gift shopping in Kyneton

shops in kyneton


After a turbulent year, there are many people to thank; teachers, childcare workers, our healthcare providers, coaches, team leaders of our clubs, neighbours, friends and family. The best gifts are often not the most expensive but the most heartfelt. We have put a list together of our favourite gift stores in Kyneton to assist you in finding the perfect gifts, and to support our hard-working local traders at the same time.


Books, books, books

What better way to thank a teacher than with a book? Kyneton has two dedicated book stores. Find a second hand treasure or new release at Aesop’s Attic, or peruse the children and youth speciality bookstore that is Squishy Minnie.


Handmade treasures

A small hand-made gift that is thoughtfully picked can mean the world. Check out the Old Auction House Precinct as well as the Kyneton Christmas Market. Whether it is a hand crafted card, jewellery, small clothing item or accessory, sometimes the littlest gifts give the most joy. (They are also easy to wrap!).



Food and health

For the person who treasures good health and a sustainable world, go no further than Alter Your Health for a range of eco-friendly and health-related items. For those who want to indulge in amazing food and foodie goods, eat your heart out at Macedon Ranges Hampers and Duck Duck Goose and Larder.


Arty gifts

Kyneton is known for its outstanding artist community and there is no shortage of amazing artworks. Check out Art on Piper, Colours of White, Lauriston Press and The Stock Room for all your art gift needs.


Unique gifts

For a wide range of quaint gift items, head to Mollisons. If you are in search of a second hand gift, Kyneton Collective, Red Cart Vintage, Circa Antiques and Collectables and Nickleby’s Antiques have got you covered. In contrast, a subscription to Threshold, which has a host of interactive family activities that you access online, is straight out of the modern world and requires no wrapping whatsoever.


Wherever you choose to source your gifts this year, we encourage you to support these wonderful local businesses. That is perhaps one of the best gifts; you can give back to your community.
