The end of year holidays is just around the corner, which also means gifting is on the brain. Whether you're shopping for him, her, or little ones, here is a thoughtfully curated collection of beautiful Australian handmade gifts to help you check a few loved ones off your list.
For the little ones
Also for the little ones: the gift of experience
One of the best things a child could receive is the gift of experience. My kids may not remember specific toys, but they have long-lasting, fond memories of experiences with the special people in their lives! Check with your local parks, zoos and restaurants for some fun ideas.
Give her the ultimate pamper at the comfort of her home with our Ritual Reset Set ($46) or Holiday Pamper Set ($72-77). Our Jingle Jingle Sets [scrunchie & lip balm or lip scrub] ($19-21) also makes a sweet gift for all your girlfriends.
Plan an amazing hiking or camping experience with your adventurous, outdoorsy man, and gift him our Explorer Essential Set ($32-38). Don't forget to include the all year round must-have - our new SPF50 Water Resistant Reef-Safe Sunscreen ($29.95). Our Papa Bear Set ($45) makes the most thoughtful gift for the eco-conscious, down-to-earth guy in the house.
Also for him & her: the gift of experience
Give the gift of child-minding this Christmas. Yes, it's a gift! As a stay-at-home mother, this is one of my all-time-favourite gifts. This allows me to have a date night with my husband or some alone time to fill my own cup. Or consider giving a membership to yoga/pilates sessions or the local gym. It encourages both parents to take time to care for their bodies and minds.
A gift that keeps growing
Add a Plantable Blooming Card to your gift and your recipient can grow daisies after reading your love note. Write your own note, or leave your personal message in the notes section at checkout and I will handwrite it for you! With every purchase from our Holiday Collection, take 30% off any Plantable Blooming Card (special price: $3.85, original RRP: $5.50). Discount automatically applied at checkout.
Wrapping it up
All our gift boxes are sealed sustainably with a beautiful botanical paper tape and wrapped with a festive paper twine. Your orders are packed in recycled cardboard boxes and kraft paper shreds, sealed securely in compostable satchels with a compostable shipping label!
Being sustainable is important to my family, and hence an important aspect as I make every decision for Little Balm. When you purchase from Little Balm, you can be supporting Australian small businesses and caring for our planet.
So there you are, I hope this has been a helpful and fun list for you! Have a wonderful time celebrating the end of such a crazy year, and I hope you experience true joy and hope this Christmas.
