Here at oh-hello! we just can’t get enough of businesses led by strong, creative women.

As we approach International Women’s Day on March 8, it seems like the absolute right time to shout out those we partner with to supply the contents of our personalised gift boxes.

This special day on the calendar has always been about supporting the rights of women to work, create and live as fully as they can. This passion for bettering the lives of women through products is something that stands out about each and every business we collaborate with.

Let’s take a look at some of our partners and give them the recognition they deserve!

Whimsy Kaleidoscope

When you receive one of our customised gift boxes, the first thing you’ll notice is the unique design of the box itself. That’s thanks to the creative powers of Sheree at Whimsy Kaleidoscope, who has come up with the designs for three of our gift boxes. Her brilliantly colourful and quirky designs adorn all sorts of other items, from cards and fabrics through to hair accessories and tote bags, elevating the everyday to something really special!

Bon Lux

Bon Lux takes inspiration from flowers for its gorgeous, natural products. Their lip balms and candles are some of the most popular items in our gift box fillers collection. Headed up by Chantel Camilleri, this small but mighty business honours ancient techniques to harness flower power in its range of self-care and home décor goods.


If there’s one word that sums up the spirit of Emeldo, it’s got to be "fun". Everything in this range of jewellery, accessories and homeware is vibrant and bursting with creativity, reminding you that life is here to be lived to the fullest! Emily Dornbusch is the creative genius behind the brand and she does a fine job of juggling being a mum to her son Smith and translating her bold and bright ideas into wearable designs!

Summer Salt Body

The delicious essential oils and body scrubs that we use in our gift collection come straight from Summer Salt Body, inspired by Australian beach days and all things natural, vegan and simply irresistible! The all-woman team who work at Summer Salt Body under the leadership of director Sarah all share the same values: work in harmony with nature to create skincare products, gifts and more that nourish you body and soul.

Miss Frankie

Miss Frankie produces a new generation of nail polishes that are kind to skin and the planet in simply stunning shades. Plant-based, breathable, cruelty-free and vegan, they’re everything you want in a modern nail care range with a conscience. Because oxygen and water can pass through the polish to your nails, this polish won’t dry your nails out. What's more, they side-step all those nasty chemicals associated with more traditional nail polishes. We simply wouldn’t settle for anything less…so why should you? The brain behind this innovative range is Melbourne-based manicurist Kara Jeffers, whose vision has always been about getting back to natural nails.
