Do you fear heading to your local mall to buy Christmas presents? Waiting in the endless lines, following people to find a carpark and listening to the same carols on loop? Then we have the perfect solution.
Shop from a small business instead! You’ll be helping out the little guy and chances are you’ll survive the festive season with your sanity still intact. Whether you need a gift for your mum, son or Secret Santa we’ve got you covered.
To support our customers during the holiday period we’ve put together a list packed full of small businesses who all use Xero. Here’s our official gift guide for the festive season.
For the kids: Hipkids

Last minute gift: Edible Blooms
We all make the mistake of leaving one gift until the last minute. Well not to worry – Edible Blooms is here to save the day. They can deliver their ready-made hampers to most metro cities on the same day. They even operate across the ditch so you can send your Kiwi cousins a treat or two, (just make sure it’s not a pavlova).
