‘We’re cutting through the clutter, with gift ideas from five fantastic local brands, and special deals just for TDF Readers!’

For all the excitement it brings, Christmas does tend to also bring about its fair share of anxiety… and the stress of Christmas Shopping is definitely a contributing factor. It just feels like every brand is shouting so loudly for attention at this time of year – pick me, pick me!

This week, we’re cutting through that clutter, with our gift ideas from five fantastic local brands, and a host of special deals just for TDF Readers!

Dinosaur Designs

The iconic Australian brand that needs no introduction! We’re lifelong fans of Dinosaur Designs handcrafted resin homewares a jewellery, and the brand have wowed us again this season with their newly released ‘Joie De Vivre’ collection.

Featuring homewares and accessories in lush hues and new shapes, Joie De Vivre brings together a bright, summery palette of Melon, Guava, Honeycomb, Dark Turquoise and refreshing Snow Swirl.

The offer :
Spend $200 or more online during the Christmas Countdown period, and receive a beautiful Rock keyring – available in your choice of colour ways. (no promo code necessary)

kikki.K

It was so inspiring to meet and interview kikki.K founder Kristina Karlsson for our podcast earlier this year – and it’s been brilliant to see her excellent book, ‘Your Dream Life Starts Now’ taking flight this year!

kikki.K’s Christmas message this year is to be ‘a giver of good’. To this end, they’ve created a range of meaningful, thoughtful gifts that will help loved ones dream big, get organised, make goals for the year ahead, and start 2020 inspired and ready to leap into action! We’ll share our handpicked kikki.K gift guide on Friday.

The offer :
kikki.K are offering 30% off TDF’s Top Picks for Christmas – use discount code TDFXMAS. *Not available in conjunction with any other offer.

Bed Threads

We’re always partial to a fresh new bedlinen update, and this year we have Australian linen specialists Bed Threads on our wishlist! Their soft, scrunchy 100% French Flax bedlinen is ultra luxurious, yet fairly priced, because they sell directly to customers online (you won’t find them in any retail stores).

Bed Threads linen comes in a palette of 16 delicious colours, complemented by a small edit of homewares. They’re also a certified carbon-neutral business!

The offer :
TDF Readers received 10% off everything during the campaign period – use code THEDESIGNFILES at checkout.

Shop Bed Threads Now!

Thames & Hudson

Thames & Hudson is a much loved publisher of titles across architecture, design, art food and more. Whether you’re shopping for Mum, Dad or workmates, Thames & Hudson have all bases covered – and let’s be honest, you really can never have enough books!

The Offer :
Thames & Hudson are offering a staggering 30% off TDF’s Top Picks for 2 weeks only – use discount code TDFXmas30.

Shop Thames & Hudson Now!

Blackhearts & Sparrows

Emerging as Melbourne’s go-to purveyor of interesting, hand-selected wines, craft beers and ciders, Blackhearts & Sparrows are now in 11 locations across Melbourne, Canberra and Tasmania! Not bad for an independent retailer which first opened in 2006 with just one small store.

We’ve learnt a LOT about great wine whilst perusing Blackhearts’ shelves to create our very own gift wishlist for you – our top picks include an awesome 3-pack of natural wines, a summer gin-mixer pack, and a brilliant new non-alcoholic wine substitute too! We’ll be sharing all these selections and more in detail on Friday – stay tuned!

The offer :
Receive 10% off the TDF’s Top Picks – no need for a code, discount will be applied at checkout to all products in the TDF Top Picks! Offer available online only.

Shop Blackhearts & Sparrows Now!

All discounts / deals are LIVE now, for two weeks only! (Ends Sunday December 8th)

Throughout the rest of this week, we’ll be diving into each brand individually, sharing our handpicked gift ideas for all the Mums, Dads, girlfriends, boyfriends, workmates and kids in your life.

We hope you find our Christmas Countdown a fun and easy way to shop, stress-free – and support local this Christmas!
