The Perfect Australian Housewarming Gift

Posted on October 26, 2019 by Sarah Davidson Comments (0)

Do you have friends or family moving into new digs? Are you trying to decide on the right housewarming gift that would suit them best? Pass it on to us because we are here with the perfect Australian made gift for their new home and you can trust us to point you in the right direction.

Australian Heartwarming Gifts

Are They Making a Home for the First Time?

If so, you really need to go for the basic stuff. Generally, people tend to overlook such gifts thinking that's too easy and maybe I need to go for something more fancy/glamorous, but if this is a first home then needs come before luxuries. A suggestion would be to go for things like our wooden utensils set, a cheese-board, kitchen board or an elegant and useful set of salt and pepper grinders as these are items we all need and use often. With practical gifts like these you know they will be used every day and as long as they use it, love and happy thoughts come your way!

Or is This Move an Upgrade?

If this is an upgrade the rudimentary stuff is already taken care of so you should look for something differ-ent yet decorative that would add beauty to an empty corner.

We all know fancy items do come with a fat budget. Not willing to spend a hefty amount? Go for some of our lifestyle products that are budget-friendly, elegant and add that touch of warmth that wood brings to any room - our T-light candles in Banksia or Jarrah and our range of wooden photo frames are a perfect fit. If, however, we are talking a luxury gift then a set of rice bowls or a classic wooden bowl for salad or fruit are also winners and if you really want to go all out, something from our one-off gallery section could inspire you.

You Want an Australian Made Gift

For many reasons you may want an Australian-made gift – for recent arrivals from overseas, new citizens or perhaps you are simply a fan of locally made over imports. Whatever your reasons, these gifts all bring an organic, natural warmth to a home and have an individually hand-crafted feel that makes them special, plus they are guaranteed made in Australia from our unique native timbers – hard to go past for the perfect Australian housewarming gift.

Banksia, the Quintessential Australian Gift

Posted on October 03, 2019 by Sarah Davidson Comments (0)

Australian Woodwork Banksia Gifts

Banksias are unique to Australia

Banksias, those plants with their knobbly, furry seedpods, their fascinating flowers and their amazing story of regeneration by fire are so, so, Australian and are in fact unique to this island continent of ours. With 170 different species, Banksias range from low, ground-hugging shrubs to trees that can reach 30 metres tall such as the Banksia Grandis from Western Australia whose huge seed pods provide the raw material for our range of Australian made Banksia gifts.

Banksia Grandis from Western Australia

From rough and knobbly to polished and beautiful

The rough and gnarly seedpods once turned and polished, come alive to reveal their inner form - infinitely varied patterns and textures which our woodworkers have used to advantage in creating objects both useful and beautiful, from walking sticks to wine stoppers to candles.

Sustainability

The harvesting of the seedpods is strictly regulated by the Department of Parks and Wildlife Western Australia, can only be done on foot so that the bushland is not damaged in the process, and is limited to a small area of bushland each year, ensuring it and the Banksia will continue to thrive.

Overseas friends just love them!

Most Australians are very familiar with Banksias being a common bush or garden plant but international people find them especially fascinating, unusual and delightful; they have simply never seen anything like it and appreciate the organic nature of the seedpods with their intriguing patterns of holes and their furry 'velvet.'

A truly Australian gift

 All of which makes our range of Banksia gifts perfect for sending or taking overseas; they are sturdy, unbreakable, and lightweight.  Closer to home, they make an excellent  Australian citizen gift or for any occasion or person where the gift has to be not only Australian made but quintessentially Australian.
