Celebrate and share the beauty, culture and creativity of Australia
Melbourne based, specialist online retailer Bits of Australia is calling on all Aussies to support local communities and small businesses this festive season, by giving Australian made Christmas gifts that celebrate our country's vibrant and rich history and culture.
Micaela Smith, Founder and Managing Director of Bits of Australia said it was the overall lack of contemporary Australian made gifts available on the market that led her to become an active champion of home-grown creativity and design.
'It was near impossible to find any appealing Australian made gifts for Christmas and birthdays while living in London. After moving to Australia, we found the range of cheesy and clichéd merchandise equally as disappointing and most of it was produced overseas!" Ms. Smith said.
Launched in early 2014, Bits of Australia sources authentic Australian made products, gifts and souvenirs from independent artists and designers, local communities, small businesses and suppliers around Australia, and makes them available at www.bitsofaustralia.com.au.
'The aim of Bits of Australia is to make Australian made products and gifts more accessible to anyone, anytime and anywhere in the world."
'It's great for the 6.4 million* migrants currently living in Australia, who may be looking to share a little piece of their new life with friends and loved one's back home this Christmas."
'We also provide a great way for tourists to avoid excess baggage fees and save space in their luggage with an affordable international flat rate shipping fee. Locals also benefit with free delivery within Australia for purchases over $30 while supporting the local economy," Ms. Smith added.
Bits of Australia offers a selection of more than 600 handcrafts and boutique gifts across 20 categories that make unique and memorable Christmas gifts, including handmade jewelry, striking home-wares, quirky art and stationery, lovable soft toys and natural skincare for men and women.
