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 some talented and creative Gold Coast brands — and we hope you’ll do the same.

Here are a few of our favourites to get you started.

Mr Consistent
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, Espresso Martini, Bloody Mary’s – just add alcohol – and you’ll have one very stoked loved one on your hands. Plus, its a great way to crack out those shaker skills on the big day!

Greenfolk Botany Shop
One of the Coast’s most iconic and well-stocked plants and gifts stores that has so many options for greenery it’s not even funny. Located in the bustling Burleigh, you can grab anything from the smallest succulent right up to a full-blown cactus. Plant goals amirite?
Where: 5/2 West Street, Burleigh Heads

The Undercurrent
Since we all love the Gold Coast, why not wear a little piece of it on your chest. The Undercurrent has a range 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).

Capricorn Distilling Co.
After relocating from Rockhampton to Burleigh Heads earlier this year, (and creating a great place to drop by and have a drink) these guys have wasted no time in pumping out some incredible spirits. This year they have created a Christmas style Pudding & Spice rum as well as a few special gift packs and their own bons bons full of mini bottles of gin or rum. SIGN.US.UP!
Where: 21 Ern Harley Drive, Burleigh Heads

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. You can even get yours customised with your name, so there’s no arguments as to who gets to use it! Stock up for your mum, sister or bestie and sneak an extra little something in for yourself!

Granddad Jacks
When it comes down to some tasty gins and nifty tasting vodkas, Granddad Jacks is a fine option for filling someone’s stocking with something a little stronger this year. Always ones to keep up with special times of the year, if you get in quick, you might be able to snag a bottle of their limited release Pavlova Gin! Tell us something that screams Christmas more! We’ll wait! There’s also several gift packs available, so they’ve done all the hard work for you.
Where: 45 Lemana Lane, Miami

ducky.
If there’s one gift every lady in your life will love, it’s a beautifully scented candle, and ducky.’s soy candles are as good as they get. Infused with absolutely magical scents — like Black Raspberry — and hand-poured in Currumbin, there are SO MANY beautiful options that are a total treat for your nose. There’s even a candle named after local haunt The Henchman, but if you’re into the Christmas spirit already, the Mrs Claus or Nan’s Pudding featuring top notes of orange and clove will have you rockin’ around the Christmas tree early.

A Bit Hippy
Skincare in the prettiest packaging is the perfect pressie for the lady in your life. Much more than this, though, is Burleigh-based skincare brand, A Bit Hippy, whose entire ethos is about simplifying things with their entire plant-based range. From sunscreens to balms to shampoos, they’re so proud and sure of what they make and do there’s even an irritation-free guarantee or your money back. You can’t go wrong!

OBfive Skateboards
Always wanted to give skateboarding a try but not so keen on getting up close and personal with the pavement? Take a look at the selection of boards available from OBfive: there is literally a skateboard for every ability and taste. And if you’re stuck on which one to choose, get hold of their gift cards instead and let that special person choose their own. Either way they’ll (or you) will be hitting the street soon to take part in a Gold Coast rolling crawl. And if you need the pressie in a hurry, you can pick-up direct from their head office in Burleigh!

The perfect Christmas gifts if ever we saw one. With two brick and mortar locations in James Street or Pacific Fair too.
