1. Lorna Murray Hat

“These are the best travel hats. The clever concertina design means they fold right down and don’t get crumpled – perfect for taking away on holidays and day trips to the beach. They’re all made by hand and the company has very high ethical and sustainable standards, which is fantastic.”

We have a selection of these hats available at The Atlantic store (located at Reception), so if you’re in town, pop in!

2. Little Company Facial Treatment

“My favourite indulgence. A Little Company facial is my go-to for a bit of me time. I usually get a 90-minute treatment.”

3. Carrie Case Phone Holder

“This is my all-time favourite gift – I’ve bought these phone carriers for so many friends and family. I have two colours that I mix and match. I take it everywhere, even stand up paddle boarding. I also gave one to my son, Hunter, who wears it around his neck while FaceTiming us and riding around New York. I’m so glad someone has designed these – my phone used to slip out of my pocket all of the time. I just love it. It’s my number one.” 

The Carrie Case is available at Our Corner Store in Bangalow (Kimberly’s go-to shop for gifts) –

“This is another go-to gift for me – they are perfectly sized and really gorgeous. I love the brass – they finish off a cheese board as soon as you add them.”
