And if you want to branch out a little further I've put together a few other gift ideas, I came across when doing my own Christmas shopping, all from Australian owned micro businesses just like us. We love to shop small and local when we can...
It's true, we're always busting a move in the studio....
So many amazing finds this year, and as with every year, I have to admit there may have been a bit of "1 for you one for me" when buying, do you ever have that problem, when its time to buy gifts? NO? It's just me then?
