First of all, I want to say welcome and a big thank you for exploring all that oh-hello! has to offer. If you have made it here, you are probably on the hunt for something unique and gorgeous to send to a loved one. It’s quite fitting really because that’s exactly how oh-hello! first came to be.
During a time when things in the world got really... let’s just say strange, that I began searching for a way to show my friends and family that I was thinking of them. Spending much of my time at home and missing life’s simple pleasures, I found myself longing for things I never thought I would have to go without. Having a cup of tea and a chat with a friend. The feeling of being wrapped up in a hug. The simple things.
I was searching for an Australian business that offered personalised gifts. A bunch of flowers didn’t feel special enough, while more traditional hampers were too expensive and often didn’t hit the mark.
My seven-year-old — also a little sad that he couldn't hang out with this mates — had begun collecting small boxes and filling them with toys, handwritten notes, and bits and bobs he would find around the house to exchange with his friends. Once the boxes were complete, we would walk around the neighbourhood dropping off the little gifts on his friend’s doorsteps.
This was my 'oh-hello!' moment and decided that since the thing I was looking for didn’t seem to exist, I would create it myself.
Like my son, for me, it wasn’t so much about the gift itself, but the feeling behind it that was important. With this in mind, I set out to create something to help people celebrate the moments that matter, even if they can’t be there to do it in person.
oh-hello! is a small, affordable gifting solution. Whether you are celebrating a birthday, a promotion or just letting someone know they are in your thoughts, I know you will love our selection of small gifts with personalised cards to match. I have worked hard to source and partner with a range of local makers to ensure that no matter which gift you select, you’ll always get something truly special.
So while we are no longer forced into isolation (woohoo!), it is my hope that oh-hello! can continue to bring that feeling of being loved, remembered, and above all else, connected to you and your loved ones.
