The perfect match - ceramics and honey at Win's Creek Pottery and Meadery

More beautiful locally-made gift ideas for you: the lovely ceramics and honey (and ceramics holding honey!) from Win's Creek Pottery and Meadery near Canberra. Snap up ceramics and honey from this talented bunch!

The can't go wrong gift - a Crayon Chick rope necklace. Or bowl. Or wall hanging.

Another great Australian-designed and handmade gift idea! Crayon Chick's Michelle Harvey creates beautiful rope necklaces, bowls, wall hangings, earrings and more in her Melbourne workshop.

The perfect Aussie Christmas dress from Doops Designs

This is totally my pick for a Christmas dress this year. And for every other day of the year. This is the Cowley Fields design by Doops Designs who handmake beautiful, sustainable, ethical clothes in the Byron Bay hinterland.

Goose and Dust make sustainable kids sunglasses that you'll want too

Here’s a stocking stuffer that will get heaps of use and is recyclable at the end of its life! Aussie designers Goose and Dust make the best sunnies and eyewear for kids that I ever did see.

These cups made from coffee husks make the best Secret Santa gifts

This is my pick for the best Secret Santa gift out there. Aussie designers HuskeeCup create these cups made from coffee husks and have a design award under their belt to boot! They are perfect for your coffee run of course (with matching lids) but great for all liquids; I was introduced to them at a work meeting at a crowd-funding investor’s office, used for water for all the guests. They have a nice feel, look good, and have a great sustainable story.

A magpie silkscreen artwork by Roofus Australia to turn heads

This silkscreen artwork by Melbourne-based Roofus Australia stopped me in my tracks. Magpies are Australia’s favourite bird (despite the odd divebomb) and this mid-century modern-inspired version would work in any space.

The mid-century modern inspired artwork you have to have by Inaluxe

Another amazing Australian-designed Christmas gift idea: the Sleepy Lion art print by Inaluxe - the masters of mid-century modern-inspired artwork. It's a piece that transcends all ages, and would look pretty fabulous with some beautiful mustard linen sheets, or even adding a massive pop of colour in a neutral space. It's certainly a head-turner.

Gorgeous cards with Australian birds and animals in tea cups

Who doesn’t love a black cockatoo - especially in a teacup. This gorgeous card is by Renee Treml and you can find her sweet illustrations on prints, ceramics, Christmas decorations, and children's books too - Renee is also a renowned and multi award-winning author/illustrator!

It would make such a big difference to our local design community if we bought even one or two local cards this year to support Aussie artists. You can even frame them after the holiday season!

Ruby Red Shoes - the sweetest 2019 diary for girls

For lovers of the delightful Ruby Red Shoes books, you'll adore the brand new 2019 Ruby Red Shoes diary! It's a beautiful Australian-designed and illustrated gift by Brisbane artist and author Kate Knapp of Twigseeds fame. Be inspired by Kate's illustrations and poetic musings all year long. What a gorgeous gift for Christmas.

Finally mini couch covers that you and your child will love

I’m so impressed with this spill-proof mini couch cover by Aussies Alicia, Hayley and Hayley from Marmalade Lion. We had two of those fold-out foam couches in the ugliest fabric possible, and if you have one yourself, you’ll know that the little ones adore them. They have been so practical; and now they can be cute too.
