OMGift Guide 2018

It’s December! Wait, what? How?! It feels as though the world is turning a lot faster than I’d like it to but there is always something magical about Christmas time, even if it does creep up on me every year.

The only tragic thing about December and Christmas is how caught up we get in spending money on stupid gifts for people who don’t even want them. If you do buy gifts this year, I’ve put together a few links to shop independently. That way you can support small business owners and local artists who also happen to produce beautiful products.

I was inspired by this tweet from Swiss Miss, only I wanted to focus on Australian brands and businesses. I put together a list last year too which is still relevant if you want to check that out.
