My favourite time of the year is quickly approaching and we can tend to leave our Christmas shopping to the last minute (right?!) but if you haven’t started yet fear not ladies – TDP has got you covered! We’ve put together a list of some of our favourite female-owned and small businesses that you can support this Christmas.
Bangn Body is a beautiful skin care brand which aims to put self-love and results above all else. Founder Priscilla Hajiantoni struggled to find a skin care brand that actually worked her and her troubled skin when she created the brand. As well as working to beat redness, bumps and breakouts, Bangn Body is also all natural, vegan and cruelty free with 100% recyclable packaging. They have THE cutest bundles out for Christmas which include two products and an adorable yellow scrunchie. Check out our interview with Priscilla to find out more about Bangn Body.
Why not support your local spa or beauty salon and give a beautiful self care gift that most of us would not usually buy for ourselves? Whether it’s a gift voucher, spa package or a mani-pedi, treat someone special with some time out that they deserve. Gold Coast gals you cannot go past iBrow Boutique at Mermaid Beach, Kristiina and the lovely team have got all your beauty needs covered!

Fashion and Style
One of my favourite memories from Christmas as a child is when I would wake up, open my presents and get a new outfit to wear on Christmas day. It is one of the most exciting feelings and that feeling doesn’t go away as an adult! Get the fashion-fanatic in your life a fab new outfit or accessory.
Shibuya Moon makes gorgeous and quirky statement earrings, originally inspired by vintage costume jewellery. All handmade by Tiff, she wanted to make pieces that were unique and wearable with a contemporary pop culture twist. I actually have a pair of her earrings and they are SO cute and the quality is on point. These earrings are perfect for that friend who loves to glam up any outfit with a touch of jewellery!
Sparrow and Finch creates amazing feminine clothing inspired by owner Chantelle wanting to create stylish, affordable clothing for women of all shapes and sizes to feel amazing in their own skin. Their dresses come in all kinds of colours and patterns plus are super flowy, which is perfect for summer. A dress from the current range would be the perfect Christmas day dress if you’re looking to treat yourself. Whether you like to dress it up or spend the day by the pool, you can definitely find something to wear on Christmas day!
Debase The Label is different from the usual fast fashion labels you see. They make beautiful pieces that are truly special to be worn over and over again, which are creative and timeless. A lot of time and love goes into each garment, from designing to sourcing the best materials. With a range of neutral tones and flowy designs, these pieces are sure to wow and be treasured for a lifetime.
Creating a special space
We all have that friend or family member that loves to create spaces in their home that are lovingly decorated and radiate ALL the good vibes. These gifts are perfect to jazz up any room, workspace or blank wall your gift recipient might have!
Hello Happee is an amazing company which works to bring a bit of positivity and happiness into the world. Laura Jane is an illustrator, coordinator for Hello Happee and you can find all of their prints on their Etsy store. If you’re looking for a more budget friendly present that is still cute and fun, prints and stickers are a really great idea. Hello Happee even has Christmas cards and 2020 calendars available.
The Common Folk Collective create candles that have an amazing range of scents and will compliment any decor. Fibi was inspired by her childhood where she was surrounded by the surf, palm trees and lots of incense to make a product that would bring those beachy vibes to any space All candles are made from coconut and soy wax and have 80-100 hours of burning time. There are endless combinations as you can pick a gorgeous candle exterior and a delightful scent!
For the positive planner
Belle Journee Planners are a fantastic gift idea because they not only help keep you organised but helps you to track the important things in your day such as sleep, water intake, exercise and mindfulness. Aimee created Belle Journee Planners because she felt so time-poor and her schedule was always so jam-packed. Instead of focusing on time slots, these planners help you to focus on your health, goals and positives from the day. With a sleek black exterior and gift wrapping available for Christmas, this would be the perfect gift for a fellow #girlboss.
Who doesn’t love a delicious treat at Christmas time? If you know someone’s favourite treat and add it in as something a little extra, I can almost guarantee they will seriously appreciate it!

Sweet Mickie is a cookie company that combines humour and food in the best way possible. Creator, Emma, used the family cookie recipe and her baking skills to give her friends fun and unique gifts.
