Christmas shopping can be stressful at the best of times – What to buy? Where to buy from? How much to spend?! One of the most important factors for us as a local business is: does this support local? With times tougher than ever, now is a great time to band together and help put the money back into our own local Perth businesses and community.
We love supporting local businesses here at Perth Happenings, and so we have put together a Local Christmas Gift Guide to help you pick the best gift choices this Chrissy to benefit the local community!
Products designed to control the chaos.
The Control Freak Co is a collaboration of two Perth based designers, business owners, mothers – let’s just say we’re jugglers! Everything we design and create aims to help to control the chaos in business in busyness – because let’s face it we all do WAY too much these days.
After the launch of the original #controlfreak quarterly diary in 2016, our community grew quickly around the demand for practical, attractive and top quality physical products to counteract the digital overwhelm of the day-to-day. The product range now includes diaries, notepads, bound books, pens, desk pads, t-shirts – but that’s nothing on what’s coming in 2020.
Want customised products? We are all over that shiz too. Just get in contact and let’s see what magic we can make together.
So why not come and get freaky with us? You won’t regret it.
