SHARE THE BEST FROM BAROSSA’S MAKERS & MERCHANTS THIS CHRISTMAS
And just like that, it’s already December. November was very busy with the opening of national borders, and it’s hard to believe that our Tanunda store of Makers & Merchants Barossa is already twelve months old. As we look to spend more mindfully within our regions, we’ve asked our resident copywriter Angela Pickett to share her top picks for the best Barossa gifts this Christmas.
TIPS FOR FINDING THE PERFECT GIFT
As I’d asked Shelley to help me choose some gifts to thank some of my regular clients for their support this year, it seemed like a good idea for me to share some ideas about choosing the best client gift. Of course, these suggestions would work equally well for an employee, or even friends and family.
While sending a gift to every client might not be possible, there will be some clients that deserve that extra thanks. Maybe they’ve been ongoing clients. Perhaps you delivered a large project. Or they could just be the clients you have a great relationship with.
The trick to a great gift is definitely knowing a bit about them. As a copywriter, I have a little advantage because so much of my work involves really getting to know the person and their brand, which can make selecting a gift even easier. If they have a team, you might need to think about something they can share.
EAT, DRINK AND BE MERRY
For the gin-lover, we stock four unique flavours from local Tanunda craft distillers Black Cat Gin, who have collaborated with Dry Orchard to bring us delicious dehydrated citrus and fruit garnishes - a match made in heaven!
And if you’re after something sweet, you can’t go past cookies from Em's Cookie Jar and the decadent treats of Ability Chocolates. These makers have even created some special Christmas packs just for us.
SOMETHING SPECIAL FOR THE HOME + OFFICE
Whether you’re looking for something for the office or home, Makers & Merchants Barossa has handmade stoneware from Katespots, recycled Scottish tartan homewares from Barossa Supply Co. and leathergoods from the talented Sunshine Barossa Australia. The absolutely stunning leather stools from recycled wine barrels are perfect as a treasured gift.
THE PERFECT CHRISTMAS PLATTER
Spices, dukkah & seasonings from Green Farmhouse, Sweet, Savoury and Gluten Free bagel chips by Barossa Bagels served on a Tasmanian Oak Serving Board by Barossa Supply Co. - will make Christmas entertaining easy-peasy!!
You can also find seasonal Handmade Puddings online & in-store, a traditional recipe hand crafted by Barossa Farm - Gluten Free also available - which will be perfectly served with the selection of Organic Tea Infusions by eKoo Energy & Organics.
THE PERSONAL TOUCH
For that special someone, or maybe to reward yourself, you can’t go past a piece of beautiful piece of jewellery from Carol at Sunshine Barossa, jewellery and linen tops by Barossa Belle or Anthea Louise.
Once you’ve chosen your gift—online or in store, Shelley and the team can organise gift wrapping, a festive card and local delivery, making this a super simple process. Handmade crochet Christmas ornaments by Barossa Supply Co - super cute as a gift tag too!
And if you can’t decide, leave it to them to select the best gift for your client, with a Digital Gift Card or the team can create a special bundle just for you.
