Plant-based gifts – The Borrowed Nursery unveils The Botanica Box

Gift hampers are funny things. Does anyone actually like getting fruit chutney, cleanskin wine and chocolate-coated ginger in an unfashionable cane hamper as a gift? No sir, we most certainly do not. That's why our hearts fluttered a little when we heard about The Botanica Box by The Borrowed Nursery. It's a newly launched botanical-inspired gift-delivery service that is ditching the less-than-appealing products for local goodness like plants, small-batch gin and hand-crafted candles.  more

The Undercurrent drops its latest series of Gold Coast suburb tees

Earlier this year, we introduced you to The Undercurrent – a label created by local las Carly Snodgrass, which saw five Gold Coast suburbs each given its own unique design by a local artist and printed onto tees and tanks so all you cool cats could rep your hoods through fashion. The first drop saw Mermaid Beach, Surfers Paradise, Coolangatta, Currumbin and Burleigh designs released, and now the hotly anticipated next round of suburb-specific designs have been unveiled. more

Savour the tastes of the season at the inaugural Flavours of Summer Festival

It's a given that the warmer months generally stimulate a lot of beach trips and fun by the coast. Don't get us wrong, the ocean really is a wonderful place to be. We're just going to put something out there, though – have you ever thought of doing something really different over summer? You know, like ditching the hot sand and beachside hustle for lush greenery, fine food and relaxed vibes? Well, if you're keen to mix things up this year and escape the coast on the ultimate foodie adventure (with a champagne in hand), then round up the crew and head out to the Flavours of Summer Festival at Spicers Hidden Vale this January. more

The Christmas round-up: gifts for fur children and actual children

They’re small, they’re cute and they can be immeasurably frustrating, but we really can’t imagine our lives without them. Yes, we’re talking about both our children and our pets. Let’s face it – our fuzzy little companions are just as much a part of the family as their human counterparts, so they deserve all of the treats as well! Whether you are buying for your own precious bundles of joy or someone in the extended family, we have gifts for every kind of kid – even the really hairy and four-legged ones that have to sleep outside. more
