Their gifting is easy, supporting local Australian producers and farmers because they believe that food should not travel a million miles to end up on your plate, as well as being terrible for our environment.
As well as supporting local Aussie producers and farmers, they also support female producers and minority-led producers.

Their gorgeous gift hampers feature something for everyone, from delicious edible gifts to beauty gifts.
There is a gift for all kinds of occasions and "gift builder", where you can pick you own gifts and create it into a special hamper for that someone special.
The hand-written personalised note was a sweet touch

The 'Hey Tiger Full Flex Limited Edition Chocolate' is made from 39% cocoa, sprinkles and glitter and is handmade! The chocolate bar was milky and creamy, and if you are not a fan of bitter chocolate, then this chocolate is for you.

T Totaler Organic Relax Tea Jar is a blend of relaxing and soothing chamomile, peppermint, roses, calendula and lemongrass.
As a tea lover, the tea was impressive both taste and packaging wise. I loved the quirky "old-charm" 1800s medicine bottle packaging; it almost gave the feel like the tea was medicinal and was going to "heal" you!
The tea's floral notes felt like you were sipping on "pretty things".
It was relaxing and enjoyable to drink, the blend ingredients worked so well together, and it was nice to see "real" ingredients in a tea.

Maple & Mint Jasmine and Rose Mineral Bath Salts: I am addicted to bath salts, so this was another exciting item to find in the Care Package.
The entire bathroom's air lingered with the delicate and floral aromas from the bath salts and my skin smelt like a garden; I couldn't stop smelling my skin!
The bath salts, maple & mint jasmine and rose worked so well together and created a relaxing bath-time experience.
The blend of magnesium, Himalayan rock salt, and sea salt added relaxed the muscles and eased the tension.

Next was the JimJam Veri Veri Beri Jam. This jam featured red and black currants, strawberries, boysenberries, sugar and fruit pectin.
The jam was sweet but not overly sickly sweet. The slight sweetness from the berries blended well with the tartness flavours from the currants.
This jam is perfect for adding to pancakes or crepes.

The Cinnamon Spiced Watermelon Seed Butter- This unique and unusual spread is quite different and like nothing I have ever tried before. Honestly, it was not my favourite, and the spread is certainly for acquired tastes. It was textural and flavour-packed.

The Kooka's Natural Raw Cacao Macadamia Cookies were surprisingly delicious. Packed with 100% organic raw cacao powder and Australian macadamia nuts, the cookies tasted delicious. They featured a bit of everything, slight sweetness mixed with texture and chocolate. It is easy to eat the entire pack in one sitting!

The Clay by Tina Ceramic Sunset Glaze Keep Cup is handmade ceramic and are fired at stoneware temperatures and are oven, microwave and dishwasher safe. It is a great cup to take with you to work or your favourite coffee shop.
Overall, it was exciting to unpack each item, and the hand-written personalised note did add that nice thoughtful touch. I will be certainly be using Pretty Green for my future gifting!
