Finding unique gifts for Melbourne parents can be tricky. There's only so many candles, chocolates and bottles of wine you can give, right?
If you're considering a more meaningful and thoughtful gift, you might like to take a look at Wooden You, run by Melbourne based creative Kate, a teacher and Mother-of-two, who crafts personalised wooden dolls and toys.
Wooden You offers special gifts for parents all over Australia (and beyond), as Kate paints little wooden families based on photographs provided.
Kate only started Wooden You in 2015, and her small business is booming. Right now, you are looking at a couple of month's wait to request your own personalised Wooden You family, which is something to bare in mind.
The wait is worth it, when you see your finalised Wooden You family!
