GIVEAWAY ONE: FOR THE BEAUTY LOVER
If you’ve been lucky enough to visit some of Australia’s high-end hotels and restaurants, then Leif’s luxurious products might be familiar to you.
Their premium range of lotions, shampoos and body washes, which champion native Australian botanicals, have been a favourite among Australia’s high-flyers for quite some time now. Their products bottle up the very best, and leave the nasties behind. You’ll find no parabens, sulphates, animal-testing or mineral oil fillers here.
Get your hands on the travel essentials kit, which consists of four 75ml product bottles and a sustainable pouch made from 80% regenerated leather. We’ve all stayed in hotels with useless conditioner or questionable body lotion, so don’t leave it up to chance. Leif will keep you fresh, classy and clean on your next trip.
Australia’s hole in the ozone is no joke. As summer turns up the heat, SunButter is a great environmentally-conscious sunscreen choice for all your outdoor activities.
The eco brand was dreamed up by a marine biologist couple from the Mornington Peninsula who sought to create a sunblock option that didn’t harm our oceans. The result? A reef-safe, chemical-free, plastic-free and plant-based alternative to your average, run-of-the-mill supermarket varieties.
The SPF50+ sunscreen and surf zinc comes in cute, printed tins that will truly elevate your beach bag style.
Having spent a great portion of his life in the pool, former Olympic swimmer Michael Klim knows a thing or two about the importance of an easy skincare routine to offset irritation and dryness. That’s why he created Milk and Co: an affordable, unfussy approach for the whole family.
Ideal as a stocking stuffer, Milk’s Hand Quench Cream and Face Moisturizer integrate nourishing, 95% natural ingredients to soothe your skin’s satiating summer thirst.
Palmers Christmas gift packs
Long hailed as Australia’s cocoa butter guru, Palmers harnesses the power of all-natural ingredients to smooth and soften the skin. The skincare line specialises in the treatment of stretch marks and dry skin using their beloved cocoa butter, as well as ingredients like olive oil, coconut oil and shea butter.
The Radiant Indulgence Set has a cocoa butter body lotion and hand cream. The Luscious Lips Set includes two decadent balms: dark chocolate peppermint and dark chocolate cherry. You’ll be struggling to keep yourself from licking your lips.
PHILÉ Lifestyle Products

GIVEAWAY TWO: FOR THE FREQUENT FLYER
Cloud Nine Global Travel Pack
Cloud Nine gives you one less thing to worry about as you travel. Well, actually, several less things. They’ve accounted for all the travel-sized essentials that you know you need (but will probably forget at the last moment) and packaged them up in one convenient kit to throw in your carry-on.
Cloud Nine offers several different travel pack varieties, including his and hers sets. They also include products designed to make your trip blissful, such as silk eye masks, hand cream and soothing eye drops.
Away Travel Bags
If you’ve frequented an airport in recent times, you’ve probably heard of Away. They’re the brand that offers everything you need to pack up and travel in style, all with an air of effortless sophistication.
Functionality comes first here, so allow us to break it down for you.
There’s a battery option available in their carry-on suitcases for an easy, on-the-go charging outlet. Two zippers slot into a TSA-approved combo lock for extra security. The four-piece travel cube set fits perfectly in the carry-on for peak space efficiency. The leather jewellery box, shining in elegant jewel tones, is so popular that regularly sells out. The Daypack sports an understated design and superior organising capabilities, perfect for placing atop the rolling carry-on. Convinced yet?
Shhh Silk is no well-kept secret. The likes of Kim Kardashian, Chrissy Teigan, Vogue and Cosmopolitan have all publicly proclaimed their support. Needless to say, they’re doing something right.
We suspect the high-quality mulberry silk as well as the company’s passionate dedication to a luxurious night’s sleep are the culprits of its success.
Shhh began in 2015 with pillowcases, but now has expanded into eye masks, robes and other accessories. So whether your travel takes you on a car, plane or train, these products will help you get some much needed (and deserved) shut eye.
In the bustle of the modern world, organisation is a hot commodity– especially when planning your travel. An Organised Life was born of a self-proclaimed “stationery addict,” founder Beck Wadworth, with the intention of bringing beauty and structure to chaotic and busy lives.
The label’s diaries, calendars, notepads and more demonstrate this intention in their uncomplicated, timeless design.
An Organised Life’s travel journals simplify all of the planning materials, packing lists and budget spreadsheets needed for a big trip into one elegant (and customisable!) journal. The cover is soft leather and the 56 pages allow you to plan and reflect on your trip stylishly.
GIVEAWAY TWO – WIN:
-2 x Cloud Nine Global Travel Packs
-1 x AWAY packing cubes, 1 x AWAY travel jewellery box, 1 x AWAY attachable back pack 1 x AWAY carry on suitcase
-1 x Shhh Silk neck pillow and eye mask set
-1 x An Organised Life Europe travel diary, 1 x An Organised Life Italy travel diary

GIVEAWAY THREE: FOR THE TECH LOVER
It’s hard to think of a product that has changed travel more than the GoPro.
The brand new HERO8 Black builds upon the success of every single one of its predecessors, offering unparalleled performance, next-level video stabilization with HyperSmooth 2.0, upgraded audio, customizable capture presets and a streamlined design. The new camera also features TimeWarp 2.0, which auto adjusts to your speed and can be slowed to real time with a tap – perfect for hyperlapse-style videos with unparalleled stabilisation.
Expand your possibilities and imagination with this piece of tech for your iPad.
Founded in Lausanne, Switzerland, Logitech developed quick success in Silicon Valley with a host of creations such as the infrared cordless mouse and the thumb-operated trackball.
The Logitech crayon uses Apple pencil technology and can be used with the hundreds of apps that support Apple pencil use, from Adobe Lightroom to Pro Create and beyond.
Long before AirPods swept (read: invaded) the nation, Jaybird released the first athlete-driven wireless buds in 2006.
Alongside a corresponding app, Jaybird hands sound level control back into the hands of the user. Now, you can turn up the base to push through your workout, or fine-tune the vocals to catch every word of your eBook.
The waterproof set features 14-hour battery life, phone call capabilities and a magnetic snap lock that pauses your music when you take off the buds and hang them around your neck. If you’re looking for superior sound while staying on the move, look no farther than Jaybird.
Need a little more direction in life? Same. Navman is here to help. Although they need very little introduction, Navman is known for producing speciality GPS and dashcams using satellite navigation to ensure efficient and safe travel.
Their signature GPS, the CRUISE650MMT, has a 6 inch, LCD screen that offers bright images and clear audio instruction. Driver fatigue alerts, 3D landmark guidance and an easy magnetic mount set it apart from the rest of the navigational pack. The dashcams are not only helpful in the unfortunate case of providing evidence after an accident, but offer other nifty features like precise speed and head light alert notifications. Overall, these gadgets ensure you will be safe and never lost on the road.
In more than one sense, the party will automatically light up once the JBL Pulse 4 enters the scene.
This speaker pulses with a sound-sensitive LED light show, and the 360° design transmits both sound and light on all sides. There’s even an app that controls that can customise the light themes according to the mood you’re trying to set.
Party on for 12 hours of battery time, and don’t sweat bringing the Pulse to the pool. It’s 100% waterproof.
GIVEAWAY THREE – WIN:
-1 x Logitech crayon
-1 x Tarah pro wireless headphones
-1 x NAVMAN cruise 650 mmt GPS, 1 x NAVMAN dashcam
-1 x JBL pulse 4

GIVEAWAY FOUR: FOR THE ADVENTURER
Don’t let a little water kill your selfie game. Perfect for beach holidays, water sports, ski trips and more, the waterproof Seaquatix case will keep your phone safe up to 20 metres deep. It also comes in a range of bright colours and two sizes.
Anyone who has used a waterproof case before knows that while it may be protected from the water it is also near impossible to continue to use any of the mobile functions. The best part of the Seaquatix case is that it enables you to take calls, check emails or post your latest underwater photo on Instagram – and keep it safe from water damage.
PARA’KITO Mosquito Bands
Tired of attracting the wrong crowd? Yeah, we hate mosquitoes too. Ditch the chemical sprays and opt for PARA’KITO’s natural alternative to keep the dreaded pests away.
PARA’KITO wristbands and clips swap DEET and citronella for pleasant-smelling, insect-repelling essential oils. The wristbands come printed in several fun designs and can be restocked with repellent pellets. Pellets will keep bugs away up to 15 days.
Contrary to popular belief, it is pretty easy being green. Especially with Frank Green reusable bottles. In as little as 15 uses, this baby offsets the environmental cost that was needed to make it.
It doesn’t stop there.
Their Pay bottle variety uses tech typically out of reach for a water bottle company – it’s their tap payment via bottle feature. When you go for a coffee run, the only thing you need to remember is your bottle.
You can also design your own bottle from a variety of eye-catching colours, and make it extra-spesh by mixing up the lid and bottle.
Crumpler is to adventure as Simon is to Garfunkel: inseparable.
The brand came to the scene in Melbourne in the mid-90’s with its quirky and highly functional messenger bag. As word spread, and created an international footprint, the company displayed growth in its product and culture. Yet, nothing has changed in regards to a high standard of quality and minute attention to detail in their products.
The Jolly Swagman Backpack is a perfect example of Crumpler’s ability to bring a simple, lowly backpack to the next level. It’s outfitted with breathable, extra-cushioned shoulder straps and back panels, heaps of pockets and plenty of other functional internal storage.
Turns out your grandma’s cast iron skillet is still in vogue.
Everything about Lodge Cookware, from their history to their products, can be summed up in one word: durable. From the Southern roots of Tennessee, Lodge has been selling good, old cast iron skillets since 1877, spanning five generations of family ownership. I mean, the only thing sweeter than that company history is Tennessee iced tea.
Their products, like the Blacklock Cast Iron pan, remain naturally non-stick and last for decades due to skilful production and triple-seasoned iron. Keep one in your camping cookware arsenal for your next adventure.
For such a compact and portable size, the Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM packs a major punch.
Ultimate Ears began delving into the world of sound in 1995, and now, 360° sound speakers are their trademark. The WONDERBOOM is perfect for all adventurous outdoor activities. It’s waterproof, drop-proof and jams for 13 hours of battery life – perfect to amp up your next festival, hike, camping trip or driving holiday.
We’ll admit it. Casamigos caught our attention because the owner is George Clooney. But, it kept our attention because of its rare existence in the sweet spot between affordable cost and premium, smooth taste.
Casamigos’ collaboration with California’s beloved home goods brand, William-Sonoma has created a love child of beautiful craft cocktail trappings. It’s the perfect gift for that someone in your life who likes to have a good time while keeping it classy.
