Time to spread some cheer! After everything 2021 threw our way, we're going all out for the holidays and getting into the festive spirit early this year.

Our goal at Merchant & Green is to provide you with a one-stop shop. So, to help you get ahead of the rush and make gift-giving hassle-free, we've put together a list of our favourite unique Christmas present ideas. From beautiful fresh plants to locally-made goodies – we have something for every type of person on your list.

Flowers & Foliage

Okay, maybe we're biased, but we think a new plant buddy is a wonderful way to make someone feel special! We have a vast range of air-purifying potted plants to match every personality and lifestyle, as well as striking Phalaenopsis orchids that your loved ones can appreciate for a long time.

Of course, nothing beats the scent of fresh flowers. Want to create a completely custom arrangement for that personalised touch? Whether it's a hand-tied posy or a striking centrepiece you're after, Merchant & Green's team of florists can create a big, vibrant arrangement using a variety of seasonal blooms. Get your order in as soon as possible to ensure we can source the perfect flowers for you.

Sweet Treats

December is the time for indulging, and you can't have a happy holiday without dessert! These Christmas sweets are perfect for stocking fillers or as a gift for the host.

Our festive confectionary includes gluten-free drinking chocolate and marshmallows, crunchy peanut brittle, chocolate macadamias, and classic Christmas cakes and puddings! Plus, all the treats we offer are made locally by small family-run businesses.

Luxurious Skincare

Give the gift of glowing skin and treat your loved ones to a set from Australian body care brand Leif. Their gorgeous range of products celebrates the diverse flora of our land with botanical extracts and essential oils combined in clean formulations that are 100% vegan and cruelty-free.

These body wash and balm duos come beautifully boxed and feature Leif's latest scents, including boronia with oud and nutgrass and buddha wood combined with orange and centring sandalwood.

Scented Candles

It's been a stressful year for all of us. Help your loved ones slow down and zen out by dimming the lights, lighting a beautiful candle and taking a few deep breaths.

We are obsessed with Gascoigne and King's range of locally made and hand-poured candles that celebrate nature with their exciting fragrance blends. Choose from the elegant Gardenia Veitchii, earthy Figue, the fresh scent of Paddington's tulips and tuberose, or Belle's uplifting notes of geranium, spearmint and bergamot. What's more, the brand is all about caring for the environment while also supporting local businesses!

Manifestation Magic

Ring in the new year with good vibes! Your friends and family members will love our mystical selection of crystals. Clear quartz is one of the best crystals for new beginnings, offering powerful vibrations that remove stagnant energy and promote clarity and strength. Rose quartz is known as the stone of love, helping to open the heart, restore harmony, and promote deep inner healing.

We also stock white sage smudge sticks! Burn these as an everyday ritual to purify and cleanse the body, office or home and get rid of negative energies. Bring on the magic of 2022!

Whimsical Glass Gardens

For someone who's just starting on their journey to becoming a plant pro, a nifty little terrarium is an excellent, low-pressure gift.

We have a vast range of shapes and sizes in-studio and online, including DIY kits that include everything they need to get their hands dirty and connect with nature. We also carry the sweetest tiny glass globe gardens that will add charm to anyone’s holiday décor!

Gift Vouchers

For that person on your list who has everything or that aspiring green thumb, consider giving them a Merchant & Green gift voucher!

They can make their own choice of something special for their home and garden or to participate in one of our popular workshops.
