50+ Aussie Retailers to Shop with this Christmas

header image '50 aussie retailers to shop with this christmas

This Christmas I wanted to write something a little different. Something special…fun…exciting…a blog about presents!

I’m a strong believer in supporting our neighbours and shopping local. After all, it’s small businesses that are responsible for over 97% of our employment in this country!

I think you could agree that ‘Think Global by Shopping Local’,  is one of the best ways to support great Aussie businesses this Christmas. Plus, you can get yourself (or your loved ones I guess…) some pretty bang-on pressies, so it’s a win-win really.

I’ve been adding to this list over the past year and no doubt a few more will pop into my head after this goes live.

The list is divided into all the things you should need for a great Christmas. Plus, these businesses are either purely online or sell online, so you can do all your shopping in your PJs, with a glass of wine and some cheese 😉. You can thank me later! 

Our list is packed with Milk It friends, clients and all-round Aussie retail legends. So without further ado, here is my list highlighting some of my favourite Aussie retailers to help you shop locally this silly season.

Enjoy!
