For the Veggo on Your List

Has someone on your list embraced the pleasures of a vegetarian lifestyle? About three percent of Australians are now meat-free, (about 1% are vegan.) For people who are gaga for green and good health, Sydney Microgreens is a terrific source for unusual and unusually tasty microgreens such as daikon radish and red chard beet greens. The Trust the Team box is overflowing with a selection of the week’s best harvest and makes a terrific gift. If the Veggo you love loves to garden, consider the gift of microgreen kits from Etsy Australia.

For the Heavy Drinkers You Know

The Bureau of Meteorology has predicted a warmer, dryer summer than usual. That means we should all be upping our water intake. You’ll love hydrating with water bottles from Koh Living. Crafted in stainless steel and featuring designs from Australian and Indigenous artists, many of the bottles are being offered at a special low, before-Chrissy price.

For the Cuppa Crowd You’re Gifting

“O come all ye faithful tea drinkers and give tea gift packs galore!” invites T2, an Australian tea purveyor since 1996. There are a variety of appealing options including the A Year in Tea: Tea Bag Gift Pack. The pack includes 12 tea flavours packed in beautiful, ready-to-give tins. The site also offers fun accessories including infusers, cups, milk strainers, and more.

For Sustainability Fans Who Enjoy a Good Layabout

Summer is here and that’s the perfect time to slip into an organic cotton bathrobe from Bhumi, based in Melbourne. Cosy and soft, and very breathable, the company’s robes come in a variety of lengths and styles for men and women, as well as unisex styles. One reason Austin Clinic loves organic cotton is the fact that it contains no chemicals. It is perfect for sensitive or allergy-prone skin.

For People Who Want to Save Face

The holidays are fun, joyous, and (if we’re honest) hard on the skin! So much is happening. We wear more make-up than usual. Even skincare regimens are disrupted by a flurry of social activities. These and a variety of other factors can take the glow out of skin as quickly as blowing out a candle. The Austin Skin Everyday Essential Kit is a great way to kick-start a skincare routine back into action. You can also give the gift of choice with an Austin Skin Care Voucher.

For People Who Love to Give to Others

If charitable donations and good works are part of your gift-giving plans, Austin Clinic would like you to consider The Melanoma Institute of Australia. MIA is “a non-profit organisation dedicated to preventing and curing melanoma through innovative, world-class research, treatment and education programs,” says its website. The Institute is a beacon of light for the more than two out of three Australians who will be diagnosed with skin cancer in their lifetime. It’s easy to make a donation.

For the VIP on Your List – Y-O-U

We hope our Austin Clinic 2023 Christmas Gift Guide makes your holidays a little smoother and less hectic. When it’s all over, the ornaments are tucked away, and the tree is in the compost, we recommend you get away from it all, figuratively and literally. A visit to one of Australia’s day spas will put you in line for an endless buffet of replenishing treatments and restorative down time. You can go all-in for an experience at the spaceship-like Naiko Retreat or slip away to the Spa at the Park Hyatt Sydney.

Wishing you and EVERYONE on your list the very best this Christmas!
