Here at The Natural Gift Collective we are all about three things:
And when these combine.. that's when MAGIC happens!
Here are 4 small, Australian brands we are absolutely loving at the moment... inspired by nature and creating absolutely magical products.
Rosie from Know The Rose creates some of the most beautiful, timeless and natural dried flower arrangements we’ve come across.
Staying away from trends, Know the Rose is all about sustainable and timeless pieces, stating they are better for our beloved environment and our wallets too!
Here is a little piece from her website:
“Inspired by the idea of imperfect and beautiful curations she began experimenting with dried florals after noticing a gap in the market for more natural, preservative free bouquets. She loved the process of arranging, weaving and creating wildly unique bouquets so she started drying flowers in her garage for her own personal collection.
When you shop at Know the Rose, know that our pieces are only dried using traditional chemical free methods. All pieces and products have been sourced responsibly. And of course, being big advocates for the environment we're dedicated to reducing our plastic consumption. When you shop online or with us in person, we use plastic-free wrapping and packaging”

Beltera Bespoke Embroidered Hat Art is created by artist and designer Jules Holland. She is a true maker and artist and creates stunning hats.. the type of hats that would be passed down for generations they are so gorgeous.
"Each piece is sketched freehand without the use of patterns or stencils and then embroidered by hand with care and precision. Jules Chooses her colours instinctually as she stitches, working meticulously without the use of machines. Ensuring each design is unique.
Beltera’s incredibly unique process can take up to 30 hours to complete, this is slow fashion in its most patient and devoted form. Love and Magic is weaved into every design.”

Olive Studio, founded by Zoe in 2020, is an online ceramics store, specialising in unique yet classic pieces, which can be personalised, making them perfect for gifting.
Her range of large, personalisable coffee mugs (bigger = more coffee… yes please) have been loved by many, as well as stunning jewellery dishes, vases and dog bowls.
From Zoe’s site:
“We bring you collections of hand crafted homewares and functional ceramic pieces. No two items are identical as each item is built by hand. These variations are what we love as they make each piece unique. Perfectly imperfect.
Every item is made in Sydney (Sutherland Shire specifically) using locally sources materials. Our clay bodies and glazes used for dinnerware are all non-toxic and food safe.”
