The festive season has well and truly kicked off here at the Entrepreneurial Development Centre, and we thought of no better way to bask in the joy than to curate a Christmas Gift Guide that goes beyond the ordinary.

Everything in our 2023 Christmas Gift Guide features the products and services of our incredible Accelerate and Elevate members, all carefully selected to add a touch of Entourage magic to your holiday celebrations.

Accelerate Member Joanne is the owner of Waterview Bakery, a fantastic family owned and operated bakery in Paynesville, Victoria offering scrumptious Christmas delicacies this holiday period. 

From Christmas puddings to gingerbread houses, cakes and hampers, and a whole spread of other award-winning pastries and baked goods, you’ll find something from the team at Waterview Bakery to take your holiday spread to the next level.

The Sweetest Christmas Treat From American Doughnut Kitchen

American Doughnut Kitchen has been a staple of the Melbourne food scene since 1950, serving hot jam doughnuts and delighting generations of taste buds in that time. 

Their recipe hasn’t changed over the years (their dough is made fresh daily), and their legacy is unmatched - so if doughnuts and sweet treats are your jam, this is the perfect stocking stuffer. If you can’t make it to the Queen Victoria Market in Melbourne, they also offer both physical and digital gift cards for the Christmas period, as well as gift-boxed jars of jam.

Tairn McLean Has The Perfect Christmas Read

If you’re looking for a good read this Christmas period, check out Making Beautiful by our incredible Accelerate member Tarn McLean. Tarn has created a body of paintings spanning 20 years of her career, and in Making Beautiful, she reveals her journey of how she became an artist, and how her paintings have enabled her to enrich the lives of the patrons who have collected them. 

This publication is an artwork in and of itself, showcasing the homes of those who have collected her works. It is a perfect gift for the artist in your life and also a fantastic addition to anyone’s home library. You can also view Tarn’s portfolio of work here.

Commission Artwork From Silence Melbourne

Silence” is a self-taught aerosol artist with experience spanning 30 years. Raised in Frankston, Silence has experienced and been part of the evolution of Melbourne graffiti and street art culture - and now, you can add a touch of that classic Melbourne look to your own space.

With an online store that stocks canvases, sculptures, industrial artworks and gift packs, you’re sure to find something that will, in the words of Silence himself, “transform any ugly space.”

And if you’re feeling extra generous this Christmas season, you can also commission Silence to create a mural for any home, business or community group for 2024.
