Current Christmas Crushes.

We've reached that time of year when we know we should REALLY begin shopping for Christmas... but have not quite yet started. Am I right? For those of us still lagging behind, we have sourced a range of (hopefully!) inspiring gift ideas for you, your family and friends, this festive season.

For the arty one.

Jessica Rowe's bright & cheery watercolour painting designs allow you to mix and match at an affordable price. View the whole collection at her online store, The Aestate

For the entertainer.

Totally smitten with these beautiful gold trimmed ceramic plates and bowls with splashes of striking hues... Seriously divine pieces available by Suite One Studio. A statement piece or set to showoff at the next event.

For the one who loves the outdoors.

With a lot of time this summer spent floating between the beach and the BBQ, Basil Bangs' new range of umbrellas are the ideal gift for those who love to spend time outdoors (and in the Australian sun). View the whole collection here.

For the little ones.

Keep them ALL entertained these holidays with this chalkboard kids table by Australian designer, Mark Tuckey. No paper = less mess. 

For you.

Now we can't forget ourselves in all this shopping can we? We recommend that you indulge in something you wouldn't necessarily spend your dollars on during the year, including:

(1) Any stunning jewellery and homewares range by Dinosaur Designs;

(2) Karen McCartney's new book, Superhouse, to discover the most exquisite, architecturally designed homes around the world while you sit back and relax this summer; 

(3) Host and serve with the most elegant teapot, tea cup and saucer collection by Georg Jensen; or

(4) Curl up for some much needed sleep in these luxurious linen bed sheet sets from Bedouin Societe.

Yes, pamper yourself, you deserve it.

Did you see anything you liked? 

Happy Shopping!
