With just 13 sleeps until Christmas, if you haven’t got all of your presents sorted (guilty!) it’s really tempting to go straight to the nearest department store to grab those last minute things.
However, if you’re like me and a big fan of supporting independent, local and handmade stores, never fear – many of these small businesses are still filling orders for Christmas!
It’s not too late to do some online shopping with these stores and, let’s face it, most of the time products from these businesses are ten times better quality and a lot more original than those in the stores.
So here’s my list of where you can grab some fantastic last minute goodies from some great Aussie mummy and daddy businesses. If you follow me on Instagram you’ll know I’m obsessed with anything monochrome, so this list continues that theme – featuring minimalist, simple and creative items that I genuinely love.
And, exclusive to MeOhMy for this gift guide, many of these stores are offering huge discounts and free shipping or express post on their goods – what’s not to love about that! Just call us Santa ;)
For some of these shops you’ll have to get in quick as orders close soon. I’ve detailed when last orders need to be placed for each.
Please check all of these fabulous businesses out, because whatever you want to call it – shopping small, shopping independent, shopping local or shopping handmade – supporting these stores helps a family just like yours (instead of a big name corporate). I know where I’d rather spend money this Christmas! Happy shopping :)
