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.

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

Give a damn about the environment with Gold Coast artisans The Ceramic Mill

Whilst there are generally a lot of options out there for reusable cups, not everyone is buying them. If you're a little slow to jump on the reusable-cup bandwagon, then perhaps these locally-made cups from The Ceramic Mill will sway you in the right direction. more
