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! We are so excited to have teamed up with five GREAT Australian brands to share our edit, and make the gift haul a little easier to navigate. And the best part? Each brand is offering special deals and discounts, just for TDF Readers!

Read on for our shoppable gift guide edit!

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?

The offer:

10% off drinks in The Design Files’ Christmas Countdown gift guide when you use the discount code DESIGNFILESXMAS at the Diggin’ In The Cellars store checkout. Offer ends Sunday December 13.

Shop Diggin’ In The Cellars now!

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!

The offer:

Receive a complimentary Stone Cheese Knife with all orders over $300, until Sunday December 13.

Thames & Hudson

Old faithful Australian book publishers Thames & Hudson have got you covered with a GREAT selection of fail-safe pressies and stocking stuffers! Honestly can’t tell you how many times these guys have saved the day with their truly excellent selection of titles – from fancy coffee table books to go-to kids books!

The offer:

25% off all products site-wide when you use the discount code TDF25 at the Thames & Hudson online store checkout. Offer ends Sunday December 13, while stocks last.

Country Road

Is it even Christmas without a bit of Country Road? From their canvas tote bags to the classic logo sweaters, Country Road pieces have been a staple of Australian wardrobes for decades. This heritage Australian brand quite literally has something for everyone!

The offer:

20% off when you spend $100 or more using the discount code TDF20. Offer ends Sunday December 13, not to be used in conjunction with any other offer.

Medley Jewellery 

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!

The offer:

20% off products in The Design Files’ Christmas Countdown gift guide when you use the discount code TDF20 at the Medley online store checkout. Offer ends Sunday December 13.
