In a year that has felt NEVER ENDING, these last couple of months are finally starting to zoom by! And yep, you know what that means. It’s Christmas shopping time!

Diggin’ In The Cellars

Apart from having probably *the* best company name going around, Diggin’ In The Cellars also have an incredible range of alcoholic drinks! This is no surprise, considering their online store is the combination of acclaimed Melbourne wine bars Toorak Cellars, Milton Wine Shop, The Alps Wine Shop, The Hills and The Moon. After plenty of…ahem…market research, we’ve chosen some of our favourite drinks for our TDF edit, which you’ll get a sweet discount on! Did someone say beveragino?

Dinosaur Designs

Dinosaur Designs – need we say more? The ICONIC Australian homewares brand, known for their marbled resin homewares and jewellery, has remained a firm favourite in design-savvy crowds for decades. Every year a little bit of Dinosaur Designs sneaks onto my Christmas list…and this year is no exception. I’m LOVING their new Wildflower collection!

You know what they say… the best presents always come in the smallest box! Medley jewellery is the perfect place for a little bit of Christmas bling (that won’t break the bank) for you to gift to a loved one… or to start dropping hints for a loved one to gift to you!
