What is one of The Gift Edit’s favourite activity? Saying hello to our suppliers and meeting new ones.
Life Instyle opened on Thursday 22 February and Closes Sunday 25 February at the Royal Hall of Industries and Hordern Pavilion with over 350 unique and specialty designed products by wonderful Australian start-ups and established retailers and wholesalers.
It has been a jam packed few days, testing products, talking to our suppliers and just hearing some great stories of how people have started up their business.
We love Just Smitten’s beautiful designed cards and tags for all occasions. You can imagine the founder Jenny who started it back in 2009 who was the Creative Director for some of the most luxurious magazines such as Vogue, Belle and Gourmet Traveller, the designs of her cards and tags are equally as beautiful and lux.
One of our most popular product range in our gift boxes, Salt By Hendrix is gaining lots of interest with retailers with their botanical skincare range with an aim to produce as much of their products with organic ingredients to nourish and nurture your soul…they also smell amazing too!
Being in the industry of gifting for over 10 years, we get to know some tried and tested brands that have an amazing product and after so many years, the quality of their product has not declined due to expansion and growth. We are great fans of Voluspa, starting out in 1999 by Traci & Troy Arnsten in Southern California, their rare and exotic fragrances paired with beautiful designs with their packaging and a custom wax blend that is sustainable and eco-friendly makes this a wonderful product and gift.
ASPAR Skincare range was developed by the founder of Aurora Spa Lyndall Mitchell initially for her luxury spas located in 5 star hotels in Melbourne and Gold Coast and then in Qantas First Class Lounges in Melbourne and Sydney. But as demand grew by her clients for a high performance product for home, she launched ASPAR Skincare to the public with 24 products at launch. We are delighted to bring you the best of spa luxury in our gift boxes, with a new range coming soon for Mother’s Day.
Often in our lifestyle photos on instagram or facebook we have our gift box products featured with homewares from Zakkia. Their unique Swedish designs are influenced by the founder Sarah Lundgren’s Swedish heritage and love of natural materials. Australian owned and based in Sydney, you’ll continue to find many of her pieces in our photography.
As we travelled through the aisles of the exhibition, we came across this beautiful stand full of vibrant colours and decorative homewares with an equally amazing story. Brother and Sister Tim and Sally founded the business building on three generations of retail and textile trading experience. Their passion for growing their brand and supporting the people of India with their socially responsible, sustainable and hand-made products is what makes their brand and products truly unique.
We’ll be launching our new product range in April 2018 ready for Mother’s Day. Look out for some of our new products from these great suppliers. In the meantime, visit thegiftedit.com.au for our popular and unique gift box range.
