Here's the thing: Christmas is fast approaching and every year, it seems to come around faster than the year before. Naturally, to save myself from any last-minute trips to the shops, I'm starting early.
I've always tried my best to shop small, but now more than ever, I want to support all the small businesses that have been impacted by the uncertainty of the last year.
But there's so many small retailers out there that sometimes it's challenging to actually see what's on offer. This is where Afterpay comes in.
They have curated a list of small businesses on their website which can help you find that perfect gift all while supporting lady startups and other independent stores.
I love nothing more than spoiling everyone at Christmas time, and using Afterpay is an easy way to help me pay things off gradually in 4 interest-free instalments. I also love that I know from the very beginning how much each payment will be and when they will come out of my account, which makes budgeting super achievable.
To give you some Christmas shopping inspo, here are 10 Aussie businesses that we're loving sick and the perfect gift to grab from each of them.
