Whether you’re super organised and shopping ahead, or you have a special someone’s birthday coming up; there’s something quite special about gifting something handmade. And luckily, we have some amazing talent here in our state. So you can buy handmade and Australian-made. 

From ceramics to hand-carved shaving brushes and candles to art, we’ve put a list together of some beautiful, bespoke gift ideas. Made by people from NSW, including some from our home of Potts Point and Sydney.

Swedish for “little cottage”, this Sydney-based artisan handcrafts a selection for him and her. With handmade grooming items like safety razors, hand-carved wooden brushes, wooden bowls, soap, beard balms, and fragrances which are perfect for Father’s Day.

All of it is available online or they have a regular stall at The Rocks Market. And the best thing is? Everything is customisable, just drop them a line and they are happy to help.

Based in our very own hometown, Potts Point Sydney, this lifestyle concept store is the perfect place to visit when you’re redecorating. And, with its very own handmade items like the beautiful Becker Minty handmade snow globes, it’s the perfect place to visit when shopping for a gift. 

Grit Ceramics

Know someone who has recently renovated their kitchen? Or perhaps you live with a passionate foodie and want to get them a thoughtful gift to show them you care. These beautiful pieces of handcrafted ceramics and the creation of Leia Sherblom at Grit Ceramics, from her studio in Pottsville NSW. 


A candle is a fantastic gift when you’re not sure what gift to give. And we’ve found a delightful mother and daughter duo in Canowindra, NSW. They create beautiful, hand-poured soy candles with fragrances from native botanicals. This is definitely one to add to the gift ideas list.

Broken Bay Pearls

Special because of the longer cultivation period which creates a truly unique pearl. Choose from a range of colours ranging from warm white to green and pink hues.
