  • Colleagues and Kris Kringle Gift Guide

    Our post is a little later than anticipated today because I decided that we needed make available the Australian honey nougat that we stock at the hive online and that meant we had to photograph it and load it on to the website and well, there's no IT department at Queen B, that's me!  And I was screen printing because sales of the Seraphina candles WENT OFF!!  Yay.  Thanks guys.

    Now, back to the nougat.  If you're after a light and fluffy, airy, blink and you miss it kind of nougat, this is NOT the one for you.  If you're after something chewy and substantial with LOADS of nuts (40% according to the ingredients list) you're going to love this.  And when I tell you that it's made in Australia using pure Australian honey and that it's gluten free (that means thinning, right?) you'll probably love it even more.  It's available in 3 honey varieties - Iron Bark Honey, Leatherwood Honey and Orange Blossom Honey.  We've been taste testing it for several years now and we still can't decide.  We keep on having to go back to the beginning to try them all over again!

    But I digress, today's post is all about great, Australian made gift ideas for Kris Kringle and colleagues.  Most come in under $25 (at full price and even cheaper for the next 24 hours).  All show thought, good values and all are useful immediately.  They're not the gift that's going to end up in the cupboard or landfill!

    We've come up with a corker of a list and then put it all at 10% off for the next 24 hours (offers expire at 4pm tomorrow 04/12/2014).

  • More Jam Jar goodness

    Well it appears as if there are more jam jar obsessed people than we realised... or is it beeswax candle in glass obsessed people?... or is it quirky, sustainable gift people?... or is it fans of Joost?... Never one to look a gift horse in the mouth, we're just happy being slammed and knowing that regardless of your own particular bent, these Jam Jar Tealight beauties will never disappoint.

    While a mother isn't supposed to have favourites, I have told my big sister's for years that I was mum's favourite (that's the baby's prerogative  right?!) and as the baby of the Queen B range, I have to admit that the Jam Jar Tealights are my new favourite.  That probably leaves the Bee Lights with middle child syndrome, which based on my experience means they will move to London where they can truly feel loved!

    Anyway, of course no sooner than we had them launched (and mum and dad had been called on to pack emergency supplies because we couldn't keep up!) than the calls started about refills and bulk supplies for parties and events.  Being the nimble, agile, sleek, athletic, customer-focused, (very, very good looking) bees that we are at Queen B, we've put them together too.

    So, with no further ado, we're proud to announce the launch of our Jam Jar Tealight Refills pack (there are 15 candles in the beautiful, Australian made box with the 100% recycled, chlorine free kraft label!).

    And, for those of you who think that 2 jars isn't nearly enough and you want LOTS, or you're having a big party, or you want to give a few as gifts, or you love jam jars a lot, or you're running a restaurant called the Greenhouse by Joost and you want to light up the entire dining area with pure Australian beeswax tealight candles in jam jars, we've also put together a Party Pack of 60 Jam Jar Tealights (all in jars).

    And just in case you didn't realise how gorgeous our new babies are, here's another take on them...

    It's a play date!  Joost's baby girl with Queen B's baby. It's a play date! Joost's baby girl with Queen B's baby.

    Yep, we think Joost & Jen make good babies too!

    Kat (who packs your orders) banned me from offering a discount, so we negotiated (got to love a democracy) and we're doing 20% off for 24 hours only (offer finishes 11.59pm, 5th December 2012).  As a few people have realised recently, no the discount end date/time is not negotiable.  It is a gift to our early adopters which are consistently the people who know and love and spread the word and it's our way of saying thanks.  We genuinely appreciate it.

    That means that those of you that only read our newsletters will miss it. :-(  Those of you who like us on Facebook and subscribe to our blog are in on the secret!
