Welcome to our Holiday Gift Guide! We’ve made it easy for you to support female-owned businesses this festive season by compiling a range of gifts from our awesome Premium members. With thousands of female-owned and run businesses to showcase, we couldn’t get to everyone in this post, but stay tuned as we’ll be publishing more Gift Guides for your Boss, Kids, Work Wife, and the Office Secret Santa soon. Happy shopping!
We’re big fans of Okay Lady puzzles in the Business Chicks office, and if you were one of the 2000-plus attendees who came to 9 to Thrive Summit in Melbourne you would’ve seen Kirsty O’Kane’s gorgeous puzzles on display. Perfect for your mum, gran, work wife or partner, the only struggle you’ll have is trying not to keep it for yourself!
Premium member Taryn Brumfitt founded the Body Image Movement in 2012 to end the global body-hating epidemic by inspiring people to embrace their bodies through documentaries, books, online programs, speaking and educational resources. 100% of proceeds of the sale of this scarf goes directly towards their Embrace Kids documentary.
We absolutely love these tights – not just their pattern (which also comes with a matching crop top), but TWO side pockets that can fit your phone and keys, plus a waistband card pocket. Beyond just these tights, Active Truth was co-founded by Premium member Nadia Tucker with the intention of being size inclusive. It was one of the first brands to make activewear that crossed between fashion and working out and fitting women regardless of their body shape.
Premium member Terri Vinson is the brains behind Synergie Skin, which brings together the desire to make women feel confident in their skin and also products that are backed by science (did we mention she’s a cosmetic chemist?). What we love about this kit is that the MineralWhip is about four products in one and contains SPF 40, PLUS the Enviroshield helps protect your face from daily toxins. For your day to day makeup routine, this is our go-to and comes with many recommendations!
Premium member Alyce Tran has pioneered and dominated the monogramming category in Australia (and globally!). From phone cases and cardholders to clear cosmetic travel cases, you’ll find something gorgeous to spoil a loved one at TDE.
Premium member Carly Brown of Une Piece knows how to design cossies women want to wear. Her initial range of stylish rashies had a waitlist before her product even hit the shelves and she’s done it again with the Classic Square Neck Black One-piece. This previously sold out style has just gone live on the website today – buy it while you can!
Premium member Lizzie Renkert is one half of the duo behind We Are Kindred. With a fresh take on feminine yet modern Australian style, we couldn’t go past these perfect summer powder blue shorts.
Premium member Sharon Flynn’s make-your-own fermenting kits are a brilliant gift for the foodie in your life. From kimchi to kombucha, you’ll find a gift to suit on The Fermentary. We love the Ferment Your Own Kits which contain everything you need for making your own kraut, kimchi and brined veggies.
We all know someone who is super tricky to buy for, but we’ve got you covered. Give the gift that keeps on giving with a Bookabuy book subscription. The brainchild of Premium member Melissa Tantchev, all you have to do is select a book category, share a few reading tastes, and they’ll look after the rest by sending your loved one a tailored book once a month. Subscriptions are available for 1, 3, 6 or 12 months and you can include add-ons like tea, chocolate, socks and candles. You’ll be in the good books after this one (sorry, we couldn’t resist).
Looking for something extra special? Take a look at Premium member Kirsten Jackson’s stunning artwork and prints. Available in a number of different dimensions, her limited edition prints are an effective and affordable way to get her art onto your walls.
Designed and handmade in Melbourne by Premium member Alex Tempany, these Pineapple earrings are more than just earrings. Alex joined our Necker Island Leadership Gathering last year and was inspired to do something to give back to the British Virgin Island community. For every pair sold Alex contributes $50 to the build of a shelter which provides refuge for those local escaping domestic violence. You can find out more about her initiative here.
Bed Threads are renowned for their gorgeous linen bedding and sheet sets, and now they’ve just released a range of cosy loungewear. Premium member Genevieve Rosen-Biller trialled and perfected the capsule collection which includes linen slips and robes over five months to come up with the ultimate sleepwear for summer.

Looking for an eco-conscious gift that isn’t a reusable coffee cup? Can we be so cheeky as to suggest a ticket to one of our upcoming events? A morning with Elizabeth Gilbert is our first blockbuster event of 2020 and a brilliant gift for your bestie. Or better still, give someone else the hint that’s what you’d like for Chrissy!
The holiday season isn’t the happiest time of the year for everyone, show someone you’re thinking about them with a gift from Feel Better Box created by Premium member Sarah Willmott.
