I am a Christmas fanatic. I love this time of year for remembering the amazing gift Jesus is to this world, spending time travelling between family and friends homes. And of course the plethora of roast meats, prawns, pavlova and wine spread across the table on Christmas day.
Given that we’re less than TWO weeks away you better get started on that Christmas shopping list. If you don’t have time to think, well good thing you clicked on this link because we’ve put together a quick guide to our favourite last minute gifts.
1. GIFT VOUCHER TO US! // INTERIOR DESIGN
Husbands if you’ve heard your wife say more than once that she wants a new kitchen, well this is your time to shine. Purchase a gift voucher for any of our design packages and you’ll be the first cab off the rank when we get back to work in January.

2. Jammi & Me // CANDLES
If you’ve ever been to our design studio you’ll notice there is always a candle burning. For years now we choose to burn Jammi & Me candles. Not only are they gorgeous to look at but they smell strong which is what I like! They burn for 45 hours and they provide you with all of the details to get the most out of our burning your candles.

3. Leif Tea & Co // LOOSE TEA
Pretty packaging and typography (text fonts) will always catch my eye. I’m not a coffee drinker but can confidently say I may be hooked on tea. If you’re like me or know someone who loves tea then this is the brand for you. They offer an assortment of blended teas which are the perfect stocking filler.

4. Made by Denean // CERAMICS
Denean is an amazing local artist who creates one of a kind ceramic pieces (and also macramé creations). She has some great pieces that would suit both the gals and the guys. If you’re one to run out the door of a morning then a keep-cup is a great way to ensure you still get your coffee on the go. She also have an array of dinner set which is sure to be a conversation starter at any meal time.

5. Peggy Sue // SKINCARE
Flowing on from the lines of good packaging I have recently found this local skincare brand. I am currently using the charcoal face cleanser and the pink clay mask, both are amazing. They offer a range of products for the face, body, hair and even a range specifically for Mumma’s.
