Most of you know that I have two other babies (my twins Connor and Chloe) who are still a few years shy of their tenth birthdays so the celebrations have already started for my 3rd baby, my business www.pamperhampergifts.com.au
Without sounding too corny, I can’t believe that a decade has passed since my germ of an idea blossomed into this amazing business. I am honoured and amazed at how much my 3 babies have grown. But am especially proud of my business. From humble beginnings in my lounge room and garage, as a work at home mum juggling babies and packages and couriers and nappies and blankies – to bigger headquarters, business awards, esteemed partnerships and a dedicated team of amazing staff, Pamper Hamper Gifts has grown into everything I had dreamt of. And more.
The landscape was always going to be tough for an online business. When I started out shopping online was still a novelty and I had a steep uphill battle convincing family and friends as well as potential business partners and suppliers that this was a good move. I had a vision – from the look and feel and ethos of my site, to the uncompromising levels of customer service and quality that I knew were at the centre of what this business model was all about.
There have been some tough times along the way - it’s the same I believe for every small business and start up- but at the centre of it all was a passion and a belief that I was doing exactly what I loved and was giving the world and my esteemed customers exactly what they needed.
I am absolutely thrilled that my efforts have been recognised and I have been privileged to have won numerous business awards during the past ten years such as Best Small Online Business at the Australian National Business Championships 2010 and 2012. Also becoming a finalist in the 2011 Telstra Women’s Business Awards in the Young Marie Clare Entrepreneur category.
We have been featured in national and local media including morning television, the Sunday & Weekday papers, The Marie Claire magazine, Latte Magazine, Money Magazine, Bride to Be, 2GB Radio, our local Courier and loads more.

We are proud to call iconic brands such as Glasshouse Fragrances, MOR Cosmetics, Simon Johnson, Bitton, Maggie Beer, Waterford Wedgwood, Oobi Baby, Urban Rituelle, Vera Wang, Veuve Clicquot and Logan Wines ( and many more) very good friends and supporters of our business.
Our website has grown and evolved into one of the best online platforms for gifting, hampers and all things luxury. Since 2004 we have seen the site go from strength to strength with an increase in loyal corporate customers and everyday consumers. This is why we have decided to launch our NEW WEBSITE and keep our customers happy, in love and entertained with our offerings and website.
