It goes without saying that we live and breathe all things Gold Coast and we know you do too.
So, in the spirit of local love and that of the festive season, we’ve decided to purchase all our Christmas presents from Gold Coast brands and we hope you’ll do the same.
Here are a few of our favourites to get you started.
If there is a Christmas present more exciting (and universally loved) than cocktail pre-mix that’s as good as anything you’d sip in a bar, we have not heard of it. Mr Consistent gives you bar quality Margaritas, Sours and Bloody Mary’s – just add alcohol – and you’ll have one very stoked loved one on your hands.
The Ceramic Mill
There’s been a resurgence of ceramics lately and we’re certainly not complaining. Think sleek, modern designs and beautiful reusable coffee cups in the brightest of colours and patterns. Stock up for your mum, sister or bestie and sneak an extra little something in for yourself.
Gold Coast Longboards
Always wanted to give skateboarding a try but not so keen on getting up close and personal with the pavement? Try a longboard from these local legends. They’re easier to ride and come in lots of sweet colours. Perfect for every single member of your family.
Olas Supply Co.
If the man in your life is in need of a party shirt (or three) Olas Supply Co. is the place to shop. They do good time party shirts and tees for the lads – big and small – plus a range of women’s wear if you need something for yourself, which you do.
Everyone is keen to try their hand at pottery due to the recent glow up. Local brand Crockd is allowing us all to do exactly that with a special edition Christmas DIY Pottery kit including everything you need to make two beautiful creations. Buy one for Mum and do a lovely little activity together. Sounds perfect to us.
Summer is set to be a scorcher so we’re all going to need extra skin hydration Gold Coasters. Cannabella has us covered with their organic, hemp-based skincare. It’s all natural and oil-based and with everything from serums to face masks you can grab a gift for the whole family.
Since we all love the Gold Coast, why not wear a little piece of it on your chest. The Undercurrent have created two ranges of suburb-inspired tees designed by local artists and they are as cool as can be. Nab one of these for anyone who loves their local suburb (or someone you’d like to coerce into moving Coast-side).

Everyone loves comfortable, stylish activewear and the gals at Paris & I have it in spades. Everything is manufactured right here in Queensland and it’s all so beautiful and ethically produced and what more could you, we mean Mum or Sis or bestie want? The perfect Christmas gift if ever we saw one.
Flaurae Essential Oils
Skincare in the prettiest of packaging is the perfect pressie for the lady in your life. There are roll on perfumes, energy mists aromatherapy diffusers and essential oils, bath soaks and specially out together gift packs. All very lovely and all very delightfully smelling too.
Drift Trading Co.

Infused with absolutely magical scents and hand poured in Currumbin, there are SO MANY beautiful options that are a total treat for your nose. Get these for anyone who could use a pretty smell in their lives (husbands included).
