2019 BackSA Gift Guide

I knowwhat

you ʼ re thinking...

“It’s our gift to South Australia.”

What ’ s a bank doing publishing a gift guide? It’s a question plenty of people might ask – but there’s a simple answer: we back SA. For more than 170 years, we’ve been the bank that South Australians turn to. What better way to back South Aussie businesses during this crucial retail period than by encouraging everyone to buy local? That’s why we’ve created this unique guide, filled with gift ideas, featuring SA businesses. This guide makes it easy for you to support our state. Of course, there are names on these pages you'll recognise – icons like Beerenberg and Shaw + Smith – but, as our cover star Pippa Wanganeen says, there are hidden gems in South Australia. We’ve featured them, too. For the cover, we spent a day with the Wanganeens at a local Christmas tree farm in the Adelaide Hills. Gavin and Pippa are a natural fit for this guide: they are passionate about SA, enthusiastic supporters of local business and also have their own growing small business. Their positivity and energy reflects the great South Australian spirit of community and collaboration. Our goal inputting together thismagazine was to give you a range of inspiringgift ideas for everyone in your life: kids, mums, dads, grandparents, close friends andmore. Think of it as our gift to you, our gift to the state. Have a wonderful Christmas, NICK READE CEO, BankSA

It’s no secret that South Aussies love to support SA businesses and BankSA is no different: this guide was written, styled, photographed and edited in South Australia . We worked with more than 100 businesses and retailers (see the entire list on p30) and brought together an amazing team of SA-based creatives to bring this special magazine to life: EDITOR Jo McKay
