2018 Gift Guide

Our tree is up, the carols have started, the lists are being texted through – yep, there’s less than a month until Christmas.

We at Rust happen to adore the festive season, despite getting absolutely ZERO snow up here in the tropics, and having to hide in the aircon/pool for the duration of Xmas celebrations. But there’s something oh so sweet about getting together with family, eating more than you should and just generally trying to have a nice, relaxed day.

Prior to that, of course, comes the gifting.

We think that it’s SO important to shop small and support independent businesses at this time of year. Not only are you helping someone’s dreams come true, but running a small biz at Christmas can be overwhelming, chaotic and overall a little tough. So let’s give the makers one less thing to worry about and shop from their collections, eh?

Below, you’ll find a curation of over 20 gifts that we have handpicked and can vouch for. 

We know there’s an array of gift guides popping up at the moment, but we wanted to throw our two cents in as this guide is made up primary of female run businesses. It’s so important to cheer on our fellow girlbosses, but even more so to actually put our money where our mouths are, especially at this time of year.


To shop each product, simply click on the image and it will take you straight through to the shop/direct product page.

Happy gifting, you lovely bunch!
