For some, the festive season can become a little stressful. With so many people to see, gifts to buy, parties to attend or host, can leave some exhausted just by the thought. Between family, friends, neighbours, aquaintances and colleagues, this can leave the budget in tatters too.
Let’s start with the small gifts, the tokens of appreciation, the secret Santa gifts that you may need on hand for the very likelihood that someone will be overlooked.
Ecoya is a fantastic place to start! With gifts starting from $12.95, these beauties can’t possibly break the bank. With a fragrance like Ecoya’s Fresh Pine, a truly Christmas inspired scent, these tea light candles and fragranced stones are the perfect stocking stuffers. What about Ecoya’s Christmas Bon Bons? Absolutely gorgeous Sweet Pea & Jasmine Body Butter wrapped perfectly in a Bon Bon style. Let’s do one for all the ladies at the table. Then of course there are all the Ecoya body products and pamper hampers too. Not to mention Ecoya’s Limited Edition gift packs. Deck the halls with intoxicating fragrances we say!
So what about the green thumbs in the family? We’ve been extending our living plant lines all year due to the incredible popularity of potted plants and indoor plants being an ideal gift that keeps on giving! From the sweet & petite Little Critters through to the strikingly spectacular Fiddle Leaf Fig plants. There’s succulents, kokedamas and the ever popular and uber stylish phalaenopsis orchid plants. Let’s not forget the Peace Lily that is perfect for the Peace on Earth festive season. If you prefer something sweet & petite, the super cute wooden crate with a beautiful selection of textured ferns would be ideal for a windowsill.
Then there’s something for the sweet tooth! You know who they are! The ones that appreciate a very fine chocolate and have honed their taste buds over many years. I am one of these people and I can honestly say, I’ve tried most every chocolate there is and I’ve brought into my shop my absolute favourite bespoke gourmet brands. Firstly, let’s start with the Cuvee Chocolates. Cuvee has brought out a Connoisseurs Collection of chocolate to be indulged in with specific wines (combining two of my favourite things – cheers!) The Grand Cru, Amphora and Soleo are dark and milk chocolates to indulge with red and white wines – truly a treat for the taste buds!
Let’s not forget that the incredible Bramble & Hedge folks have been mixing things up to create some of the most delicious nougats, honeycombs and chocolates decorated with things like rose petals and lavender to totally tempt you, but also making you think it looks way too beautiful to eat!
Christmas isn’t Christmas without a gourmet hamper sent to family and friends to share. There’s a little bit of everything in these goody baskets. Something sweet, something savoury, something to drink and all just perfect for the silly season where we’ll indulge in goodies and treats to our hearts content.
Now when you’re planning your Christmas soiree, let’s not overlook the surroundings. Spruce up the place with Spruce, Holly, Pine, Christmas lilies, roses, native flowers or any number of combinations for your Christmas table centrepiece. We make many a bespoke Christmas arrangement in the colour theme of your choice, whether that be the Christmas reds or the Winter Whites and get this Christmas delivery done before Santa arrives!
With all that you have to do, allow us to take some pressure off so that you can truly enjoy the magic of the season! Happy Holidays 🙂
