Alida and Miller: Byron Bay Christmas Shopping Guide

Here is Alida and Miller last minute favourite buys from around Byron Bay and Bangalow (where Alida and Miller is based).
Hope these ideas take the hassle out of finding that perfect Christmas present.
Byron Bay is incredibly beautiful all year round, but there is something about Christmas time that makes the town become magical, maybe because it's summer time people are relishing the long hot summer days and mild barmy nights. The town can swell up to over 300,000 at the Christmas /New year period and unlike most sea side tourists town locals stay put to also enjoy that Christmas spirit.

We love Jai from Ahoy Trading, Byron Bay. Jai is a talented local artist and you can see his art work  all over town, in restaurants other local retail shops and even in my own home. Ahoy Trading is a little bit hard to find , but ask around and the locals will point you in the right direction.
