Zebra Finch Staff Picks 2023

Unwrapping Our Favourite Finds for the Season!

The festive season is upon us, and here at Zebra Finch, our team has been busy curating a list of our absolute favourite picks—gifts that are sure to bring joy, style, and a touch of magic to your celebrations. Without further ado, let's dive into our staff's top recommendations for this holiday season!

1. Kate's Picks:

Kate has recently been obsessed with her Kyla tee in sketch print from Elk the Label's new range. The fact that it is made from an organic cotton makes it super easy to wear, and the sleeves are extra long, which she loves. The pattern is so vibrant, making it the perfect addition to a holiday wardrobe. You get instant joy when wearing a piece like that.

Kate also has her eye on the Robert Gordon x Claire Ritchie fruit bowl. She's keen to upgrade her old fruit bowl from 15 years ago. The elegant design and quality craftsmanship make it a standout piece for any kitchen.

Plus, Kate had to include her bath xylophone (lol). This is one of her shop favourites, and she loves having a go at it in the shop, entertaining her nephew when he visits. It's a quirky and delightful addition to any bath time routine, bringing joy and laughter to both kids and adults.

2. Pascale Recommends:

Like Kate, Pascale is head over heels for the sketch print by Elk the Label. However, she's more keen on the Shirt Dress version as it's made from linen. The breathable linen fabric is perfect for the season, and we can already picture her rocking it at a Christmas party. Effortlessly stylish and oh-so-comfortable, this dress is a must-have for any summer wardrobe.

When it comes to toasting to good times, our Kiara Martini Glasses by Tempa are Pascale's pick. Elevate your drinkware collection with these elegant glasses that add a touch of sophistication to any celebration. 

As our resident in-house florist, Pascale has been busy creating stunning bouquets with our Florabelle Flowers. These blooms are not just any flowers—they're a work of art. Why not add a touch of nature's beauty to your space or surprise a loved one with the gift of everlasting blooms. Pascale's floral arrangements are crafted with love and creativity, making them the perfect gift for any occasion. We sell them instore at Zebra Finch Kotara.

3. Katie Can't Get Enough of:

As a lover and collector of tote bags, Katie can't resist adding our Parisian Cool Totes to her ever-growing collection. Perfect for a visit to the Merewether baths on a hot summer day, these totes not only exude style but are also made from recycled plastic—making them an eco-friendly choice.

Katie adores our Loqi Foldable Shopping Bags, especially because they feature artwork from her favourite classic artists. These foldable gems are not just practical for shopping; they're a stylish statement that adds an artistic touch to every errand.

Katie is dreaming of a new emotional support water bottle and the Fressko Drink Bottle seems like her perfect match. Stylish, durable, 1L volume and fun colours - can't say no to that.

As a dog lover, Katie can't resist the charm of our new Jones and Co Wall Art featuring different breeds of dogs. Although she'd love a cavoodle one, the jack russel on the blue background is her next pick. It's not just wall art; it's a daily dose of happiness.

4. Megan Is Obsessed With:

Megan has a keen eye for decor and she would love to redecorate her bedroom. She's chosen some of our glass vases adorned with greenery to bring a refreshing touch to her space. The addition of a blue Cosmopolitan candle from Wavertree and London introduces both colour and a delicious fragrance to her space.

She's loving the candles holders we have in at the moment along with a Cheyenne inlay napkin holder, which she would use to hold her makeup in her room, not for picnics.
