Lat and Lo jewellery
Top of our perfect-sentimental-gift-list this Christmas is the understated and delicate jewellery range by Lat & Lo. The idea is that you choose your favourite Lat & Lo bracelet, necklace or ring, and then have it custom inscribed with the coordinates to your special place. We love the cufflink range too, the perfect gift for the hard-to-buy-for man.
Rock Ribbons Pink Rose Quartz Serving Platter

Travino spill-proof wine tumblers
Weâ€™re the first to admit this ainâ€™t exactly as pretty as crystal glassware, but it has certainly solved all of our outdoor wine problems. Have you ever tried fitting a wine glass into a camping chair? Are you sick of flicking bugs out of your glass at barbecues? The Travino spill-proof wine tumbler has the DNA of a reusable coffee cup, but holding much more precious cargo.
RRP: $14.95 + postage
If, like us, Â you daydream about luxuriating in your afternoon cuppa then dream no more â€“ hello and where have you been all our life bath brew?

RRP: $15.95 + postage
Ruby Olive accessories
Women are often told that black makes them look thinner, but we at Provoke are of the opinion that wearing colour gives you the perfect Summer glow. Thatâ€™s why weâ€™re in love with Brisbane jewellery brand Ruby Olive. Since being gifted a Ruby Olive necklace, the entire range has become our colour crush for the season. Â
Joey Design greeting cards
Letâ€™s face it, the last time time anyone got a Christmas card that they actually wanted to display was…never. Caloundra Mum Danielle Milesâ€™ witty, pun-tastic and delightfully adorable cards are frame-worthy. Her Joey Design Illustrations are anything but cheesy, except when they want to be, and the greetings are a hoot. Danielle confessed to us that when she was younger she used to steal her Grandmaâ€™s shopping list jotters to practice drawing. Weâ€™re glad she did.
RRP: $4.00 + postage
Sweet Beets treats
Weâ€™ve done it…weâ€™ve found the mother of all raw, GF, DF, Vegan health cakes, and theyâ€™re right here in our very own Brisbane! The only downside is that itâ€™s impossible to pick what we love most about Sweet Beets! Those magnificent swirls of nourishing colour, the sugar free yet sweet texture, the luxury of being able to indulge without expanding your waistbandâ€¦itâ€™s the ultimate trifecta! Created with love and passion, dynamic sister duo Steph and Edwina Young have created quite a following with their magnificent cakes and slices, and itâ€™s no surprise! Sweet Beets are simply heavenly!
Tip: Want to try a slice for yourself? Head to the Red Hill or Jan Powers Markets (New Farm)!Â
Itâ€™s not a look they could rock all year round, but certainly one we recommend for the Christmas season. Beard Baubles are the must-have accessory for the hairy-faced man in your life. All proceeds from sales go to Beard Season, an Australian charity whose goal is to raise awareness of melanoma.
