We’ve got a few ways to increase those brownie points, get you in the good books or raise you to number one on the best friends list—and they all include home-delivered presents.
From wishing a happy birthday or anniversary to apologising for eating the last piece of cake, gift delivery services are the answer to any last-minute surprise or long distant present. So without further ado here are some of Perth’s coolest gift delivery services.
Think of the Postale crew as your very own personal shoppers, curating seriously awesome gift packs filled with goodies from local brands that will make your giftee feel all sorts of special while simultaneously cementing your status as the coolest friend. Whether you want to gift a tasty treat, delicious drop or indulgent self-care moment, Postale have you well and truly covered. Better yet, it'll even come wrapped up in the most gorgeous limited edition mega canister featuring artwork from WA artists. You can't go wrong.
Sugar Coat It
Nothing says "I love you" more than a big ol' box of sweet treats. And when it looks this good, you really can't go wrong. Sugar Coat It has loads of sugary and aesthetically pleasing gift boxes to please your giftee. Head to their website and you'll find plenty to choose from beyond the classic dessert options—think everything from booze to balloons, savoury treats, candles, and flowers. Plus, you can also customise your own box online, so you're bound to find something no matter what your special someone is into.
A registered charity founded right here in West Australia, Mettle employs and supports women experiencing homelessness due to domestic and family abuse, so every gift you give directly helps empower survivors and sets them up for the safe future they deserve. But also, their collection of gift boxes are just too damn cute to ignore, with everything from candles, ceramics, booze and loads of yummy treats to choose from.
Perth, make way for Bagnum—a collab between local legends Built To Spill and Urban List ie. the perfect gift to send to your mates this year. Think easy-to-pour bagged wine that is every bit classic as it is boujee. Each Bagnum holds a whopping 1.5L of juicy Aussie wine from Sparrow & Vine with three wine varietals on offer: a Bagnum Sangiovese Rosé, a citrusy Semillon Bagnum (white) and a Nero D’Avola Bagnum (red). Your Bagnum will also come packaged in an eco-friendly and fast-chilling AstraPouch—which has an 80 per cent lower carbon footprint than its typical glass iteration. It even has a smart nozzle that activates just by the tap of your finger (read: no leaks) and makes sure your Bagnum stays fresher for longer—sans cork contamination and potential oxidation. The limited-run Bagnum range can be purchased through Built To Spill at $44 a pop. Order yours here.
Nothing says indulgence like Ox Rabbit’s home-delivered luxury brownies, cakes and cookies. Arguably more beautiful than any bunch of flowers, they’ll also satisfy the taste buds to no end. This online bakery even offers same-day delivery for those of you who have left gift-giving to the last minute.
Green Assembly is doing indoor plant lovers a big favour with their plant delivery service. These locally grown plants are delivered in beautiful ceramic pots and, if ordered before 10am, can arrive at your bestie’s door on the same day. Every plant comes with a simple care instruction card, so they’ll know exactly how to keep it alive for maximum happiness.
Ever wanted to send someone a gift—not a pricey bottle of bubbles or an extravagant bouquet, just something small to show you care? Shouta is the brand new Aussie app that’s helping you do just that. Shouting your mates, colleagues, and loved ones—whenever, wherever, with whatever you want.
As for how Shouta works—it’s as simple as it sounds. Within the app, you are free to pick and choose from various shouts between $5 and $250. Anything your special person will love, use, drink, eat, or enjoy. Think movie tickets, flowers, lunch, chocolates, or even a pick-me-up manicure. Your shout is totally customisable too—you could send a box of Panadol after a big night, or a box of doughnuts to help a mate sail through 3pm on a sugar high. Download the app here.
These guys have a motto: no more cellophane. Brewquet is an online beer delivery service that's trying to shake up the traditional 'gifting' industry (you know, the one that uses cellophane pfft). The team handpicks some craft beers, throws in a pack of jerky or two, wraps the whole thing in a classy hessian bag, and delivers it straight to your loved one. You can even attach a cut note for that nice personal touch.
Can’t decide between chocolate or flowers? Well, The Douquet has you covered. Designed for all of you out there with a sweet tooth (or four), this innovative delivery service combines donuts, chocolates, lollies and all that sugary goodness in the form of a beautifully arranged flower bouquet. These are perfect for wooing your loved one (or making sure that their blood sugar levels are at an all time high). Bouquets range from $65 to $80, keeping in mind they contain at least 8 Krispy Kremes and all your favourite sweeties. Delivery is available Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at a small extra fee—check out the range on offer here!
Man Flower Co.
‘If only there was an equivalent to flowers for men’ we hear you say. Well, there is and surprise, surprise it’s beer. Get your man one of Man Flower Co's many gift hampers which include beer, socks, beanies, workwear and even a shower beer holder.
The guys that took the stuffiness out of wine, Vinomofo is one of the fastest-growing companies in Australia (they’ve actually just expanded into Singapore). Their ethos is pretty simple: delicious wine, zero wank, and cheap deliveries from some of Australia’s best vineyards to your mouth. There’s a range of prices and varieties, but the guys at ‘the ‘Fo’ only sell the wines they love, so you know you’re getting a curated selection.
Lena Lu Bomboloni
In our minds Lena Lu Bomboloni pretty much translates to ‘next level doughnut heaven’. This Perth based kitchen creates the fluffiest doughnuts topped with a mountain of sweet, sweet goodness. Delivery is available on Thursdays and Fridays so why not leave a box of heaven at your best friend’s door?
Little Shop Of Happiness
If you’ve got a loved one who could do with a smile, Little Shop Of Happiness will deliver a cheerful box to brighten their day. You can choose from boxes of gratitude, happiness and good vibes, so if you can’t be there in person, they’ll still be able to feel your love.
Who wouldn't love a lush pot of greenery arriving on their doorstep? That's why we're all for Stackwood's gift delivery service. Head online to pick your gift and let their plant experts hand pick a happy and healthy plant, pot it up, and delivery it to your loved one with a beautiful hand written note and a care guide to make plant parenting a breeze.
The Small Batch Gift Co.
The Small Batch Gift Co’s drinks packs are the perfect gift for almost anyone. Choose from their gin and tonic, Bellini, tea or whisky packs as the perfect gift. If you’re feeling creative they’ll even let you customise your own gift pack.
Beauty sample boxes are all the rage at the moment, and Bellabox is probably the best of the bunch. You can sign up your partner, even yourself for a monthly pamper pack that includes five or so beauty samples from various on-trend brands. If you like what you try, you can shop Bellabox’s online store and buy the real deal.
You can tailor a plan to suit your giftee, and they’ll deliver the box wherever you want. It’ll set you back just $19.95 a month, which is a steal when you consider the number of brownie points on offer.
Perth Desserts Boxed Up
If your friend is a big sweet tooth but you simply can’t keep up with Perth’s dessert revolution, how does having a box of the city’s best desserts delivered to their doorstep sound? Perth Desserts Boxed Up teams up with a different local dessert master each month to bring you a goodie box made of your wildest sugar fantasies.
Luna Balloon Club
Popping up online for Valentine's Day this year, Luna Balloon Club lets you send beautiful bunches of balloons without hassle. Just select the bunch, add to cart and check out for less than $70.
The Flower Run
And finally, you can’t go wrong with a beautiful bunch of flowers especially when they’re from The Flower Run. These guys make it super easy to choose from their small or big bunch of the chosen posy and then let you choose any extras you’d like including Eagle Bay bubbles, scented candles, chocolates and honey cake.
Socks and jocks have become a bit of a gag gift in recent years, but that's only because we didn't have Manrags. They're a premium socks and undies subscription service and the only one that uses 100% Egyptian cotton… how chic.
You can order a combo of socks and jocks, or just focus on the one (if, like us, your socks disappear regularly into some mysterious dimension beyond the time-space continuum). The colourful goods come packaged and delivered right to your man's door, and you can sign him up for month-by-month, 6-month or yearly packages. It’s a yes from us.
