The silly season is fast approaching, and as a small business ourselves, we'd love to take a minute to encourage you to shop small this year and spend your money where it counts.
In a world that is becoming increasingly un-original, small business brings a point of difference and an element of uniqueness. They keep our community authentic and interesting and they bring character and creativeness - without them the world would be sterile.
We are lucky to have so many amazing small businesses in our local area providing such a huge variety of products and services that you're bound to find the perfect gift for each and every person on your holiday shopping list. So this silly season, take the time to purchase thoughtful gifts from the businesses that help to keep your local community thriving.
We've put together a list of our fave local gifts this year, a combination of local business and of the gorgeous brands we stock in house at Wildfire.
Check it out below and be sure to send through any suggestions you might have!
For her... an intro pass to The Collaborative or Peaches Pilates is truly the gift that keeps on giving, and great for helping to establish a routine after the silly season. For something to pop under the tree, a silk pillowcase from The Goodnight Co paired with a linen slip from Billie Mae is a boujee gift that everyone can appreciate.
For him... for the conscious consumer, a Jentl safety razor, for the gym junkie, a Shakti acupressure mat, or for the guy that's just too hard to buy for a 6-pack of Blueberry Sour beer from One Drop Brewing Co is sure to go down a treat.
For your friends little ones... I can almost guarantee you that your friends kids don't need anymore toys! Opt for something a little more practical this year with gorgeous sun safe swimwear from Salty Swimwear, or a cute outfit from Little Edge Apparel - two of our fave local brands. For the really little ones, the Gentle Baby essential oil blend by Young Living is a beautiful gift for both mum and bub, as are the Hanako Therapies relaxation blends which are perfect for preparing babies room for sleep.
For your besties... a delicious blend from Mayde tea can be gifted alongside a ceramic keep cup from Esther Shelley for the perfect well rounded gift. Or for the friend who has it all, a reiki healing session with Katrina to help to wind down and recalibrate after a big year.
For your mum... a facial from the lovely ladies at SkinVision is a super safe bet, pair it with Imbibe's skin perfecting duo - Miracle Collagen and Beauty Renewal probiotic blend for extra brownie points and a mumma with perfect glowing skin.
And for that last minute gift that you forgot... popping in to Wildfire Wellness for a bunch of dried florals from our fave, Treasure & Bloom and a gift voucher from yours truly will ensure that no one suspects a thing!
