Tis the season to be jolly and if you're looking for something special for a loved one with creative flair, here are a few ideas!
I've curated a list of gifts that highlight the talents of some of my favorite creators and makers + a little tech tool that's on top of my own list.
So this year, support your local creatives and remember...
Friends don't let friends shop at chain stores!
1 // Infinite Love Society Altar Bowls // Gorgeous Hand Made Bowls that would be at home in any creative space. Fill it with your favourite trinkets, crystal or simply as a stand alone art piece. Hand Made from recycled wood on the Sunshine Coast. While you're at it, check out Melina's beautiful Instagram feed too.
2 // Pencil by Paper 53 // One of the items on my wish list this year, Pencil by Paper 53 is the most natural and expressive ways to create on iPad and iPhone. With Surface Pressure, Erase, Blend, and adaptive Palm Rejection, Pencil puts creative possibility in your hands. Yes please!
3 // Rewind Candles // Blending my admiration for wine and candles, the creative folk at Rewind are giving a new lease of life to used wine bottles. With fragrances like Rose, Chardonnay and Merlot, these hand poured beauties are bound to make you want to curl up with a glass of your favorite drop and let their fragrances take your mind to exotic destinations!
4 // Skinny LaMinx Soft Bucket // From the studio of a most talented screen printer in Cape Town, South Africa, the Skinny LaMinx Soft Bucket has loads of uses and will brighten up any desk space. Use it to house your favourite plant or as a catch all for your stationary, you can't go wrong with one of these an African-inspired beauties!
5 // Renegade Collective Magazine // My all time favourite magazine for igniting my creative and entrepreneurial flame. With inspirational stories on creatives who are making their mark, a subscription to this beautifully edited and curated mag is bound to send your creative counterparts into overdrive! 6 or 12 month subscriptions available!
6 // Love Indigo Creative Print // This beautiful watercolour print would sit proudly in any creative workspace. A reminder of what's important when it comes to following a creative journey through life.
7 // Positive Vibes Only Notebook // A cute little notebook from RevampAmor to jot down your big dreams. With prompts and reminders dotted throughout the book, this is one place where it's all about the positive vibes!
8 // The Cross Roads of Should and Must // Every creative has struggled with this conundrum. Elle Luna shares her own creative journey in a must-read book whose pages are full of Elle's watercolour musings. A read-in-one-day kinda book, it's a must for the book shelf!
Happy Holidays to you.
And ... in the words of Maya Angelou ...
