The ultimate excuse to retreat from the world, into the warmth and comfort of home. A time when saying no to outings is socially acceptable and FOMO is no more. A season where the couch is king and footy reigns supreme (on the TV, of course).

If that sounds like heaven on earth, allow us to introduce you to Shop South Australia — the best SA products delivered to your door.

This July, Shop South Australia is launching a new online gift platform, showcasing some of SA’s best makers and producers – stay tuned to Facebook or Instagram for the latest. That’s right, you won’t even have to leave home to shop local food, wine, beers, fashion and homewares. With just a few clicks, they’re yours.

With that in mind, here are our top 5 picks for creating the ultimate South Australian winter weekend in your very own home…with products coming soon to Shop South Australia:

1. Prohibition Gin

Friday night knockoffs don’t get much better than a gin and tonic. Give it a winter twist by adding a slice of dried blood orange or sprig of fresh rosemary. Cheers!

Small-batch craftsmanship, artisan philosophy and obsession with only the world’s finest botanicals makes Prohibition Gin a local favourite – and an international award winner.

Upgrade your bed from stock standard to cloud status with MiniJumbuk’s Luxury+ Mattress Topper. We’re talking five layers of superior slumber support… zzzz.

Located in Naracoorte, MiniJumbuk has become a global leader in the design and manufacture of premium wool bedding.

3. Dawn Patrol Coffee

You’ll need a good brew to tempt yourself out of bed, right? Select your caffeine of choice and feel that warm buzz ever so gently wake you up.

Nestled in the heart of McLaren Vale’s wine country, Dawn Patrol Coffee are passionate about sourcing, roasting and delivering only the best specialty coffee.

4. Jeanneret Wines

Give your weekend wine-down a Clare Valley flavour with Jeanneret Wines. The labels will make you look like you know about wine and the wines themselves will back you up. Win-win!

Jeanneret Wines’ motto, ‘naturally perfect’ reflects their passion to make each of their wines a true expression of the time and place from which they come.

5. Etikette Candles

Melt away the troubles of the week by burning a beautiful soy wax candle from much loved local brand, Etikette.

Etikette Candles are inspired by the beauty of South Australia, lovingly hand poured in the Adelaide Hills and feature scents with namesakes such as Henley, Lobethal and Morialta.
