This year is very different, I’m personally feeling a little overwhelmed (even after lockdown), and I know I can’t be the only one that has been looking online for gifts that I can send to my friends and family. Especially for those Melbournians that have friends and family in Perth (yep I’m one of them).
I also know that it has been super hard on all the businesses in Australia (especially the Victorians ) and around the world. I also wanted to add that when most people think of small and local businesses, that online doesn’t really come to mind. Being the owner of an online small business myself, I wanted to be able to help others that are in the same situation. So I made this blog entry as an ode to helping out other online delivery businesses, while also making your life as a consumer a little less overwhelming.
After much consideration, extensive testing on our own families and friends… here are our top picks. This originally started out as a place for coffee Christmas gifts. But there have been a few people that have reached out, so I have extended this into other areas. All of these Xmas gift ideas are some of the finest Melbourne has to offer and can be delivered directly to their door, so its hassle-free.
