Frustrated that she couldn’t find high-quality, handmade Australian gifts for family and friends overseas, Kate Pierce decided to take matters into her own hands, starting online boutique Antipodean Love in 2011.
“I think we all feel better giving and receiving gifts that are high in quality and made with love. And that’s where I found a niche: for a one-stop-store full of giftwares that hark back to Australia and New Zealand in some way, but are not at all tacky.”
With a unique curation of locally made products including homewares, baby products, paper goods and skincare, many of the wares on offer are quintessentially Australian; from the fairy-bread and ‘Hello Possum’ pillowcases to the non-traditional Whileaway travel guides.
Antipodean Love is all about supporting the small guys in manufacturing, from the small business owners to the independent artists. Thanks to Kate, everything comes gift-wrapped with hand-written messages for that extra personal touch.
Here at Interiors Addict, we love everything Antipodean Love has to offer; from the cute and the crafty to the stylish and sophisticated. So we are very excited that one lucky reader will win the Mum and Baby Gift Box Deluxe in Latte (contents pictured above), which includes a baby journal, biscuits, hand cream, nursery spray and a toy bear.
