Christmas The GGCo. Way // 2021 Christmas Gift Guide

We say it every year, but Christmas crept UP on us this year, right?! Time’s officially running out to get your Chrissy shop ticked off the ‘to do’ list, so we’ve created this ultimate GGCo. Gift Guide to make the process easier for you.

We’ve separated the gifts into four different categories; smaller stocking fillers, gifts for the outdoorsy people in your life, larger ‘heirloom’ gifts, and our carefully curated gift boxes. Enjoy!

Gorgeous smaller gifts to pamper your loved ones with

Stocking up on smaller gifts is a *must* for the holiday season. You can use these special pressies as tokens of gratitude for the people in your life who’ve made your life just that little bit easier throughout the year; the teachers, friendly neighbours, employees. Or, you can have them on hand as stocking fillers to make sure everyone feels pampered this Christmas.

Here are some of our most popular small gifts to stock up on ✨

Aromatherapy Candles

Our aromatherapy candles are hand poured using eco-friendly soy waxes and infused with 100% bespoke pure essential oil blends, and we have a scent for every mood!

Perhaps you know someone who needs help switching off? Our Roman Chamomile and Lavandin candle is perfect for this.

Or perhaps you’d like to gift our Sweet Orange and Palmarosa candle? The recipient will enjoy greater mental clarity and a stronger connection with their inner self and spirit.

Our Frankincense & Myrrh Christmas Candle is another great option to bring that festive vibe in your spaces as Christmas nears.

Pom-Pom Hand Towel

Our bespoke 100% cotton pom-pom hand towels are not only an extremely practical pressie, they’re also a beautiful way to bring a piece of Morocco into your loved ones homes.

Earlier this year, we teamed up with Virginia Affleck (nickname ‘Pin’), owner and Founder of Made in Tangier, to bring you this gorgeous artisan hand towel.

It’s the perfect stocking filler or Christmas gift for the teachers, healthcare workers, or hardworking friends and family members—classic and understated, providing a gorgeous sink-side experience when paired with our lathers or hand scrubs.

Australian Lemon Myrtle & Aloe Vera Hand Sanitiser

Germs have always been there; on the kitchen bench, on your kids’ grubby little (adorable) hands—all over your house.

But in 2020, germs took on a more sinister meaning, and washing and sanitising our hands has become just about as second nature as checking Instagram.

Why not treat your loved ones with our ‘posh sano’—500ml Aromatic Lemon Myrtle & Aloe Vera Hand Sanitiser, perfect for those who want to be responsible by sanitising regularly, but don’t wish to compromise on style or experience.

It’s naturally antibacterial, made with Australian grown lemon myrtle, and is certified laboratory tested to ensure it kills 99.99% of germs. Plus, we’ve added aloe vera to offset the drying effect of the alcohol which will soothe and nurture your hands with each use.

Grampians nude Soap

The Grampians Goods Co Signature Soaps & Scrubs

For a luxe self-care experience in the bathroom, look no further than our soaps and scrubs.

Handcrafted in small batches using traditional, cold-process soap making methods, locally-sourced Certified Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Grampians Olive Co.

Try our Scotch Pine & Cedarwood Sandstone Soap Scrub with activated charcoal & Australian kaolin clay to draw out impurities and give you the ultimate cleanse.

Or perhaps our Grampians Grown Cleansing Body Brick in our Grapefruit & Geranium essential oil blend.For an economic option, why not try our Nude Soap Bundle which includes 3 soaps unpackaged (hence ‘nude’). This might be a great option if you’ve got lots of people to buy for, and you can even personalise the gift with your own beautiful gift wrapping touch.

Adventure scents

There’s nothing better than bringing nature’s scents inside. Try our Siberian Fir and Cedarwood Aromatherapy Candle, with its resinous, forest-like scent that provides “yang” masculine energy and a refreshing alloy of earthy and warm notes.

This blend grounds our inner self and brings out assertiveness, ambition and courage. Perfect for those people in your life who need a slight nudge to bring out their adventurous soul.

grampians campfire cocoa

Grampians Campfire Cocoa

Who doesn’t love a hot cocoa around the campfire?! In this decadent drinking experience, we’ve blended rich, aromatic drinking chocolate by cocoa artisans, Grounded Pleasures, with natural pink salt (guradj gadjin), small-batch hand-harvested from Pink Lake Dimboola by local company Mount Zero Olives, in collaboration with the lake’s Traditional Owners, the Barengi Gadjin Land Council.

With high cocoa butter content, our melt-in-your-mouth Campfire Cocoa is served best blended with hot milk—dairy or otherwise— warmly invigorating the senses; it’s the perfect balance of bittersweet with a hint of salt, and it doesn’t clump in your cup!

Your adventurous friends will definitely be thanking you after a long day out hiking in the Aussie outdoors!

High quality heirloom gifts that will be treasured for generations

One of our greatest joys here at GGCo. is reading the personalised messages that people have sent through, which we then include in our (beautifully wrapped, if we do say so ourselves!) gift boxes.

Oftentimes, our customers gift their loved ones a Scottish Tartan Blanket to celebrate a graduation, a new job, or an engagement.

Other times, grandparents with Scottish heritage want to pass down a piece of their culture to their family.

Either way, receiving one of our blankets—either our Heritage Collection Scottish Tartan Blankets or our Antipodean Collection Picnic Check Blankets—is a special affair, one that counters the overly consumerist habits of today’s society.

Antipodean Collection Picnic Check Blankets

Our Antipodean Collection Picnic Check Blankets celebrates life’s vital opposites; expansion and contraction, yin and yang, chaos and comfort, hope and despair. We’re reminded that where shadow exists, so too does light; an ever-present equipoise bringing about stability, composure, equanimity…

Made with Recycled Wool, The Antipodean Collection Check Blankets are a bold take on our Heritage Collection; their contrasting colours symbolising the coexistence of light and dark within nature, and within ourselves.

This new range of blankets will make a fashionable addition to your loved ones’ home, and will stand the test of time to be passed down through the generations.
