Ready the sleigh, Santa’s on his way soon!
Can you believe it’s nearly Christmas?! This year has been an absolute whirlwind so it’s no surprise we’re reaching the finish line a bit out of breath. The good news is, we’re here to help get you organised early this year with a list of great Christmas gifts! In the spirit of shopping local this year, we’ve made sure all of these gifts come from small businesses located right in our backyard.
We’ve had the pleasure of working with a few of these companies, but in no way are they sponsored or endorsed – we’ve picked these products because we think they’ll share the joy around like they have for us.
1. A photoshoot with Indie Lane
Is there anything more special than a gift of making memories? A photoshoot is a great gift for the sentimental soul in your life, especially for a family or a couple where there’s usually one go-to photo taker who ends up not being in the pic.
If you follow our socials, you’ll have noticed some great pictures of the team being posted throughout the year. That’s because we ourselves had the amazing opportunity to have a shoot with Donna, and the results speak for themselves! She has a natural talent for putting people at ease and capturing their best side.
