Left your Christmas shopping until the last minute?
We’ve rounded up some truly lovely gift ideas that you can still order for pre-Christmas delivery and look like you planned months ahead!
How does it happen … we pack away the Christmas decorations, get back to work and school, get through winter and then all of a sudden it’s DECEMBER again and we haven’t finished the shopping?! Life is crazy hectic busy at the best of times for most of us so you can be quickly forgiven for being a little unorganised in the present buying department. And if you are one of those organised rarities … hats off to you!
All of the finds we’ve gathered for you can be delivered pre-Christmas – don’t leave your ordering too late though because at this time of year dates can always change! We’re so happy to be supporting other small Aussie businesses just like us this Christmas!
Scarf from original artwork by Trudy Lowndes
This Lime Green and Purple Scarf is lovely! It’s a massive 140cm x 140cm which makes it so versatile … sarong, headscarf, evening wrap? Trudy has lots of other pieces created from her original artworks on her website, so much choice! (order by 15 Dec for pre-Christmas delivery)
