Christmas just for you


It’s a wonderful thing to unwrap a gift that’s personalised for you. It shows that the person giving it has put in thought, planned and tailored it, so it means more. Luckily for you, Handmade has a number of personalisation options to make you look like the best gift giver ever this Christmas. One of the best things about truly handmade items is that your purchase can be bespoke. We have a number of designers whose products lend themselves perfectly to this kind of individuality.

All of the designers mentioned here will be at the Handmade Market on 7, 8 & 9 December, and they are taking advance orders online so that you can pick up your completed gift at the market. Follow the links in each case to get in touch with the makers now. But don’t delay, as the cut off deadlines are fast approaching.

Tiny Moons designs beautiful, unique and functional teething rattles and toys for babies, and stylish silicone jewellery for the modern mum. The “Hi Baby” Teething ring piece can be personalised with the name of your little one, making it a cute and special gift.

Canberra locals, Needs & Wishes Art are personalising mugs with attitude, not with your name, but your suburb. Pick your location and place your order now.

The perfect named Santa sack can be found at Lauren Skye Studio. Also taking orders before the market for pick up, Lauren can put your child’s name and design on these beautiful pieces, and you can order named cushions as well. Get your orders in quick for Christmas.

Send Welly’s Wonders a photo of your tribe before the market and take delivery of a unique family portrait. Capture the memories of Christmas and put them on your wall. Online orders end soon, but Adam will also be doing portraits at the market.

You can personalise a beautiful jewel by Postcards from Aloysius too. Choose your country, birth year or theme and pre-order online for a unique gift.

Hayden Youlley’s paper series keep cups lend themselves beautifully to your unique name or phrase. Hayden is offering 15% off all personalised cups until the end of November. All you have to do is head over to his Instagram and send him a message from there.
