There’s nothing quite like sending someone the perfect gift to let them know you’re thinking of them. It’s a lovely gesture whether it’s their birthday, an anniversary, or even just a wonderful way to remind someone they’re loved and appreciated even if you can’t see them face-to-face.
Right now, we can’t pop into our favourite Melbourne boutiques, stroll down Brunswick Street, or pick-up locally-crafted goods on a regional road-trip. However, we can support our small businesses, and keep Victoria’s tourism scene alive by shopping online. Next time you buy, try a local business. It’s a great way to find something truly unique.
Here are some of our favourite locally-made gift ideas to spoil your family and friends.
Dreaming of a trip to Melbourne?
Why not bring a taste of the city into your home with a gift from Melbournalia? It offers gorgeous local goods and souvenirs, ranging from books to local produce, wall hangings, homewares, jewellery, toys and much more. As an added bonus, it’s offering free shipping across Victoria until lockdown ends, and you can visit the Bourke Street store in person.
Searching for a country escape?
The Grampians is one of Victoria’s greatest road-trips, combining delicious food and wine with gorgeous views, cosy accommodation, and country hospitality. Bring a touch of rural charm into your loved one’s home with a gift from the Grampians Goods Co. Whether it’s an aromatherapy candle, or a beautiful recycled wool tartan blanket, it’s the perfect gift for anyone passionate about sustainability.
