From variety stores that can help you stick to a budget, to specialty toy stores and long-time clothing traders, there’s something to suit everyone.

Here’s a rundown of where you can find the perfect children’s gifts in Elsternwick Village:


Hot Potatoes Super $2 Shop offers a huge range of homewares, knick-knacks and party goods. It’s the perfect spot to find that unique gift at an affordable price.

Perfect Gifts and Homewares is another great variety store, which is ideal for a well-priced card, a selection of wrapping papers and boxes. They also stock a number of novelty items such as wigs, masks and capes.


Hattams Mens & Boys Wear has provided clothing for boys and men in Elsternwick for generations. Run by the same family since it opened in 1872, the store features Melbourne’s only working cash railway – an elastic-powered device that shoots cash in a canister through an overhead wire system to a central register. Make sure you take the kids if you’re planning any purchases as they’ll get a kick out of watching it chug along.
