Happy Monday friends! It’s always extra special here on KID independent when I have the opportunity to write about amazing independent businesses from my home state. Today’s stylish soul is Amy from Homegrown Gifts; a little spot on the web that offers lovingly handmade gifts and eco-friendly gift baskets and hampers, with an emphasis on supporting Australian made. We recently had the opportunity to purchase a lovely gift from Amy and today we’d like to share our review.
After carefully browsing through the Homegrown Gifts online store, I settled upon a Kitchen Gift Pack featuring a tea towel, jug, and dish. This tea towel is hand printed in Brisbane by Yardage Design using non toxic ink on 100% European linen. I love this modern design and think it’s almost a shame to use it as a tea towel! The small jug and ceramic dish are handmade in Brisbane too, using Australian clay (lead free and food safe). These are super cute as a kitchen accessory and are perfect for serving condiments.
The Homegrown Gifts Kitchen Gift Pack arrived in a kraft box (60% recycled and made in Australia) and was tied with organic muslin ribbon, ready to gift to your lucky recipient. I decided to add a Sow n’ Sow Gift of Seeds (trio of herbs) pack to my gift box, which comes in a Kraft envelope and provides the perfect finishing touch.
My experience of gift shopping at Homegrown Gifts was both effortless and enjoyable. The delivery was prompt, the communication was friendly, and the products make the perfect present for friends, family, or even corporate gifting. I loved reading about the independent artists from whom Amy sources her goods. It makes the gift buying and giving experience just a little bit more enriching.
The verdict… a pleasurable shopping experience.
