There is no doubt my values around community and supporting local, stem from being raised on a farm in Western Australia’s wheat belt. But then again isn’t it just the Aussie way?
Without a doubt one of our greatest wins for 2018 has been connecting with local businesses and the passionate creatives behind them. There is so much talent right on our doorstep.
So what better way to celebrate our local legends and their businesses than creating a supporting local gift guide.
These are all Western Australian businesses, some even rural. They are dedicated business owners with a commitment to providing quality products and quality service. Let’s show them some love this Xmas.
Straight out of Toodyay this is a hand made, natural AND cruelty free skin care range where every product is made with love. It doesn’t get any purer than this.
When you experience these products, you experience the genuine love for the land and all it’s living creatures, that emulates from its Founder Nat Wright.
Nat isn’t just blending up a few home remedies in her bath tub, she is an absolute wealth of knowledge and complete expert when it comes to the carefully selected ingredients and techniques she uses. Ask her anything, I challenge you.
You just need to do a little online stalking to see the raving reviews behind these divine products. The best part – FREE SHIPPING! Head on over and check it out.
One of our founding members and a fellow country gal. Straight out of Narambeen, Kylee from Twenty One Moore has created an online stall featuring a stunning collection of homewares, children’s clothing, accessories and more.
Living in a remote country town certainly hasn’t prevented Kylee from being on the front foot of upcoming brands and trends. In fact her store is the go to for something a little different, out of the box and to make your Xmas gift stand out from the crowd.
Best of all Kylee is generously offering our readers a whopping 20% discount before Xmas when you use the code SHOPLOCAL. Start your shopping here.
Sometimes the perfect gift is just a lovely hamper, except, quite often their daggy right? Not anymore! Narelle Wilson, founder of Wildwood Studio, has done the impossible and injected sexy into hamper giving.
These are ‘thoughtfully curated gift boxes,’ containing a variety of exquisite and elegant products to suit any occasion. This is what you send when you want to make an impression. This is luxury.
Whether it’s for a loved one or a corporate gift, this gift says WOW!! Personally we think these are the best idea for client gifting but there are a whole selection to suit a variety of occasions, see the whole selection here.
Mothers of young teens and ladies – you’ll thank me for this one. I know you’re scratching your heads wondering what on earth to buy them, trust me they’ll love you for this.
Not only is this a local business but it stems from 2 local Perth designers Ela Mazur & Keeley Jackson. These two girls have created a brand and product from scratch in a very competitive market whilst growing quite the social media following. Influencers, business owners and fashion designers. That’s hard to beat.
If you want to impress your daughters knowledge of current trends, this is the gift for you. Visit their store here.
So do it the Aussie way, and give the gift of supporting local this Christmas.
