Gift Ideas - Him & Her Edition


Let the love and art of buying one another gifts return I say! Shopping for the perfect gift for our loved ones shouldn’t be a troublesome and choresome task, it should be a fun and exciting adventure. Well, that’s the way I see it at least! For me it’s not about choosing the most expensive gift or trendiest gadget around, but rather finding that one gift that will light up my loved ones faces with an everlasting joy. Here are a few of my favourite finds - unique, quirky and oh so charismatic… Happy Shopping friends!

The Horse Watches


For the punctual and not so punctual people in your world. For the ones who simply love a little wrist candy and cannot pass up the opportunity to add another beauty to their collection… these watches will be sure to turn a frown upside down and put a skip in one’s step! Even the not so punctual people (those you wish would learn a little punctuality…) will not be able to take their eyes off these beauties! Created and crafted by Scott & Amy Hawkes and their small team in their Sydney studio - these beautiful watches are made with love, care and genuine leather. Choose from four different collections; The Original, The Classic, The Stone and The D-Series. Each collection is as equally as beautiful as the other, you won’t be able to go wrong… though you may have a little trouble making a decision! With a design philosophy of ‘Buy once, and buy well…’ these little watches will last a lifetime. They even offer replacement straps should you feel your well travelled watch needs a fresh new look!

The Giving Keys


Isn’t it amazing how one word, one action, one gift can hold the power to impact and change a life forever? If you have not yet heard of the The Giving Keys Company, I feel so honoured to be the one letting you in on this beautiful business venture. It all began with a simple yet profound story about a New York hotel room key inspiring founder, Caitlin Crosby to start engraving old, used keys with inspirational words. To this day, many are gifting and receiving keys engraved with words that inspire, encourage and strengthen the soul. There is nothing more beautiful than blessing each other with our words. I have been lucky enough to have been gifted with a beautiful rose gold Giving Key engraved with the word ‘Fearless’. There are no words to express how much this little key means to me, but that it has sparked something in my heart. It has been a constant reminder, a strength and a charge to live each day fearlessly. Can I encourage you to gift a Giving Key to the ones in your world that may need a little encouragement this Christmas? Trust me, the reward of seeing your loved ones deeply moved is priceless!

The Newcastle Candle Company Candles


Who said candles were for girls only right?! The Newcastle Candle Company’s crazy cool creations proves the very truth that candles can be appreciated and adored by both women and men alike. From the sounds of Champagne & Strawberry to Peach, Cranberry & Orange to Coconut & Lime, your beloved recipient will be fighting the urge to take a sip of these delicious beauties. For the daring and mysterious ones in your world, you’ve got to pick up Absinthium & Musk and/or Cedar & Caramel! The only catch here is that you better get in quick or you may miss out! Stop by the Hunt & Gather Markets on the 17th September 2016 and meet the founder, Kieran Rezevsky for yourself. These marvelous creations do not last long, with the dreaded words of ‘Sold Out’ making a frequent show! Don’t say I didn’t warn you…
