15 locally made, unique Christmas gifts that would be perfect for the women in your life.

You may have noticed that Australian female business owners are killing it.

So this year, instead of heading straight to your local shopping centre to do your Christmas shopping, buy your presents from a Lady Startup.

By Lady Startup we mean Aussie women who are chasing their dream, turning it into a reality, and having the guts to start their own business.

Here’s our Lady Startup picks for this Christmas:

1. A cocktail gift box from Cheers Sweetie, starting at $76.

Alcohol is always a good idea. But sometimes, if you just buy a bottle it can seem a little thoughtless.

Rather, choose their favourite cocktail (there are plenty to choose from) and gift them one of these boxes for the ultimate happy hour.

2. A 2020 Diary by Little Aggie, $59.95.

Hair ties of any form seem to be similar to undies and socks – items we forget to buy ourselves.

Scrunchies are brilliant for any woman with long hair, so either purchase one as a stocking filler or the whole bundle.

7. A six-month book subscription from Bibliophiles, $225.
