Our top 5 picks for the conscious Christmas shopper

When we look back it's not really the gifts we remember most fondly; it's the Christmas traditions and sentimental moments that leave the biggest mark. With that in mind, we've put together a list of our top 5 gifts to create lasting memories this Christmas.

We're celebrating everything handmade, home-grown and heart-warming, from timeless pieces for considered campers, to craft workshops and delicious meals shared. These thoughtful pressies are sure to please!

1. Sweet camp gear

Campers are usually the easy-going type, but they can also be notoriously picky about their gear. We've sourced some of the best in honestly crafted, useful goods to inspire an outdoor lifestyle. Enjoy the bush, beach and garden with quality camp gear that will be treasured for years.

2. The gift of craft

Humans have an intrinsic need to create and grow. Our hands and bodies yearn to practice old skills, and our busy minds seek quiet rest – especially during the silly season! Give the gift of presence with a craft workshop in our beautiful, light-filled Stackwood Hall. Workshops range from gardening know-how to pottery, wood carving to weaving.

3. Share some big feelings

It's been a heck of a couple of years, and we're all feeling it. Tell your peoples 'I got you' with the Big Feels plant and pot combo. Your recipient will get a stunning large peace lily with a 250mm Mr Kitly self-watering pot, an easy care and long-lived gift that will bring a smile with each new bloom.

4. The right recipe

Like good wine, life is better when given time. One of the best ways to slow down and stay connected (to what we eat and to each other) is through meals lovingly prepared and shared. For the food or cooking lover in your life, there's no better place to look than our collection of recipe and lifestyle books.

5. Leave it to 'em

There's always *someone* that's just a little too tricky to buy for, which is probably why gift vouchers were invented in the first place. Give the gift of choice this year – your recipient can browse our collections of indoor plants, decorative pots and considered homewares and make the perfect selection for themselves.

Still not sure? We also have easy gifting collections for budget-friendly Christmas shopping. Browse gifts under $50 or perhaps gifts under $100!
